Apple Crisp II
I have been making apple crisp for 7 years based on my mother-in-law's great recipe. In our last move, I lost the recipe (and suffer from a terrible memory). I searched for a version similar to hers, but when I saw this recipe I decided I would try this instead. My husband said this was the best apple crisp I had ever made. Personally, I loved the melted butter idea instead of cutting cold butter in like I used to do. I also put it in an (roughly) 8x8 baking pan so the apples were thick. That also made the topping thick, almost like a crust, but I loved that. I don't usually eat apple crisp either. I didn't add any water, just added juice from a lime since the apples were browning very quickly and that's all I had on hand. We used Jonathan apples (about 8 medium sized) because that's what we picked last week. I cut the apples thick so they wouldn't turn to mush. We used about 1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice in the oatmeal topping because my 3 year old wanted to add it (really, no other reason than that, haha). It was juicy and the apples were cooked to perfection (about 45 min baking time). The topping was crunchy and perfect. Thank you!!!

PHILLY Cheesecake Brownies
LIGHT VERSION! I wasn't looking for it, since I would substitute the oil for applesauce, eggs for egg whites, and cream cheese for light cream cheese... but awesome! They're amazing. Made them for my girlfriend's birthday and she's trying to lose weight so I didn't want to sabotage her completely. Definitely give this a try... I did add a TSP of vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture (we love vanilla around here) and I don't think it would be as good had I not added that, probably a bit bland? My husband wants me to try doing an espresso brownie next time (with granulated coffee, add to water) so maybe I will!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
My husband and I love this basic recipe! It's easy for me (I'm VERY pregnant right now) and we can add whatever we want to it! Today we made banana pancakes, last week it was blueberry. They're AMAZING just as they are, too :) But when you have cravings, you have to give in... haha. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!
