Do you love Blogging?
Since I was first introduced to the worldwide web one of my favorite things has been learning and sharing. It may have been about my creative interests or business life-most often I find that the things I want to share combining what I am learning... Spiritual path, business focus, art, ideas to begin anew, Life. Often right in the middle of developing an idea I am interrupted and dang! I lose my train of thought or it may take an entirely different direction. Pinterest helps me to quickly capture ideas, recipes, sites to go back to and more. Recently I noticed that Pinterest has a widget creator! I was just in the middle of creating a "Things I'm Researching" board when I noticed this so I decided to try it out an see if it could be a helpful tool. So far I don't get it... Moving on...
DID YOU KNOW TODAY IS NATIONAL PI DAY?
|In honor of National PI Day|
As I mentioned one of my favorite things has been learning and sharing and combining what I am learning...Life experiences.And that thing about being right in the middle of developing an idea then suddenly find yourself interrupted sure enough it happened today...My different direction, well take for instance the Pie or PI...the picture above was a kitchen experiment that has turned out to be an amazing favorite, Carol's Apple Galette. Also since we are celebrating National Pi Day I thought I'd share my recipe along with my most recent cute card created by Bubblegum Paper. It is all about Pi Day. See :)
I was so entranced by these cute flashing lights that I read more on the site for Chibitronics These circuit stickers look fun! Interesting how it aligned with recent STEM toys I have been researching for a possible birthday gift for my sweet grandson. He has a keen interest in electronics. It seems like a great way to help him grasp the concept of basic code. My very favorite card created by Bubblegum Paper.
It showcases some of my favorite crafty things, stamping, visual doo-dah and simplicity, that make it so adorable, check it out and don't wait til Mothers Day to experiment with these cool circuit lights! Oh and if you are in the mood for some yummy delicious spiciness give My galette a whirl.
Carol's Apple Galette
1 pie Crust recipe or (1/2 of the package prepared)
About 4 cups cored and thin sliced, my apples are a crisp sweet tart flavor
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp of each nutmeg, cloves, allspice
1 Tbsp cream or half and half
1 Tbsp coarse sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. On a baking sheet lined with parchment (for easier cleanup in case a little of the filling leaks out of the crust) or sprayed with non-stick spray, carefully unroll the pie crust into a full circle. Set aside while you prepare the filling.
3. Slice the peeled if you like, and coredsapple into thin 1/8 inch slices.
4. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the Apple Slices with the granulated and brown sugars, flour, salt, lemon juice and (optional) cinnamon until the apple slices are evenly coated in the sugar mixture.
5. Spoon all of the apple filling into the middle of the pie crust, leaving about 2 inches of space around the edge of the circle.
6. Carefully fold the edges of the crust over (it will cover 2-3 inches of the apple filling). You’ll have some overlap of the crust as you fold-the most important thing is to not tear a hole in the crust where the filling could leak out.
7. Brush the outside of the crust with the cream, then sprinkle the coarse sugar over the crust.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the apple slices are tender. My favorite add-ion, real whipped cream.YUM!
