Apple Crisp and Everless

Sundays are always family day. Its really the only day during the week where we are all together. My husband and I have different days off during the week and there is never enough time in the evening to appreciate the closeness of family. Dinner must be done. Baths taken and teeth brushed. Its over before its began.

The one thing my husband and I loved to do is cook and bake together. We had a bag of apples that were on the verge of being thrown away. I hate letting things go to waist, but there were just too many apples for the two of us to eat.

Of course, my husband's sweet tooth did all the thinking and before I knew it, we were studying the ingredients recipe for apple crisp.

This was the best apple crisp recipe I have ever had. So sweet and delicious. It was simple to make and came out perfect the first time we tried it. WIN!

Ingredients:
Apples:
7-8 large apples
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Crumble:
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Cups Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
2/3 Cup Melted Butter

How to Make:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Peel and slice apples. Place them in an ungreased 13x9 inch baking dish.
3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and sprinkle over apples.
4. Combine remaining cinnamon, brown sugar, eggs, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix until they resemble course crumbs. Sprinkle over apples.
5. Pour melted butter over the top.
6. Bake 45-55 minutes or until lightly browned and apples are tender.

Serve warm with ice cream, if desired. 

If you are looking for a good book to compliment your delicious apple crisp. Check out Everless by Sara Holland. I'm pretty sure these people are a kind of vampire who drink blood to live longer. I'm really enjoying this read.

Goodreads: In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
