Curious Cooking: Mock Apple Pie

“Mock apple pie” has been on my radar for some time. I knew I had to try making it, for the sheer curiosity of it! After all, it’s made of Ritz crackers.

How in the world could Ritz crackers turn into something that tastes like apple pie? Well, even after making it myself, I do not understand the mysterious workings of this recipe. It smelled like apple pie while it was baking, the filling even looks like apple pie, and yes friends, it even tastes a lot like it!

My husband said that if he hadn’t known it wasn’t apple pie, he probably would have just thought it was actual apple pie. Either way, it was delicious and will be made again someday.

Here is the recipe if you want to try it yourself. It would be even more fun to make it, and not tell people it’s fake apple, and see if they think it’s apple. ?https://www.delish.com/…/ritz-mock-apple-pie-recipe/

Baby Yoda

Before the pandemic hit Baby Yoda was super popular (and still is of course). Luckily I had per-ordered some very cute figures, and they arrived in the middle of the stay at home recommendations. So of course I had to attempt to make a meme with one.

Baby Yoda meme

For whatever reason, the internet decided that Baby Yoda would love chicken nuggets. Even though we never saw a single nugget in The Mandalorian. LOL. However, since I also love chicken nuggets, I fully embrace this meme.

It’s been awhile

I decided to take a big break from blogging because there was so much happening offline that needed my attention. I have missed sharing here, and hope to come back more often. And I have really missed the blogging community! I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging.

What a crazy year we are having, huh? Hopefully we have been able to take a breather and see which things matter most to us. For me connecting with other people is high on the list, and that includes friends from far and near via the online space too.

Not much got done in the garden or house this year since we were on home isolation. A lot of garden centers were offering curbside pick up, but since we care for some very high risk family members we haven’t even done things like that. I miss getting take out now and then, and am so tired of all the recipes I know how to make. Time to try some new ones.

How has this year been for you? I heard a phrase that really stuck out to me, we are all in the same storm, but we aren’t in the same boat. I’m sure the events of this year are felt very differently depending on circumstances. It’s important for us to remember that, and try to react with love and kindness first. We sure do need it.
