apples watermarkHi Friends!

It’s me, Jen. It has been almost a whole year. What the what?

I know, you have always been on the back on my mind.

A little voice, “oooh this tastes good. You should share it with the interwebs.”

But alas, time got away from me. I have much to tell. Remember I started derby?

Well I still love it and it pretty much rules most of my free time.

Remember my 3 crazy dogs? Well now there are 4! What?

Remember my love of Fall?

Well I got some derby gals together and we went apple picking and I have an amazing recipe coming your way.

It is a waffle, it is a donut, it has apples, it is FANTASTIC.

SO, I just wanted to get you ready. I will be back more frequently with all my tales from in the kitchen, on the track with my pups and so on and so forth!.

xoxo

apple tart

Short on time?

Out of patience?

Got a couple of apples?

How about the desire to eat something yummy with your coffee? Tea?

Tired a sacrificing quality because it’s a mad, mad, mad rushed world?

Does this sound infomercialish?

Is infomercialish a word?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, wait.  Should you have answered no?

I’ve confused myself, it’s not difficult to do.

kugelhopf 5

I don’t mean to alarm you but I have a bit of possible scandalous information to just get out here in the open.  Maybe scandalous is the wrong word.

Ready?  O.k. deep breath.  It has been said  and I won’t name names (my husband) that I seem far more excited about the nearing of season 3 of Downton Abbey than of Christmas.

What?  That’s crazy. I love Christmas time and the lights and the cookies and the joy and oh my gosh he may be right.  That Mrs. Bates was horrible.  And the Dowager Countess of Grantham, I die, she cracks me up.

Apparently it has been said that whenever an episode is on PBS lately I will turn it on no matter if it just started or it’s in the middle or I just watched it.   That may or may not be true.

Okay it is true and I’m not ashamed.  It’s like a little winter treat for a few Sundays out of the year and I’m just prepping for it.

It doesn’t mean I’m not excited about Christmas.  All the cookies eaten should be proof enough of my joy for the season.

My second bit of news had to do with this Apple-Raisin Kugelhopf.  This delicious cake/sweet briochey (is that a word) bread.  My husband had two pieces, not because he didn’t enjoy it but because in no time flat I finished it.  Yeah it was that good.  Plain, but even better toasted with a little butter.  Swoon!  I could not be stopped and because it is the holidays and I AM looking forward to them I don’t dare try to.  I just put a few more soups and salads on the dinner menu.  Mrs. Patmore would approve, maybe. She might just yell at me!
