The nasty cold that assaulted my system for over a week is finally leaving my house and making it's way to torture some other poor souls, but alas I am free! During the time that I was down I managed to crank out a few projects, 4 to be exact and here is the second one I get to share with you (the first was the leg warmers) it is the embroidery I did for my brother's wedding gift. I still haven't figured out what to put at top and whether it should be a framed sampler or a pillow, so I am begging for some opinions here!

In return for your opinions and suggestions I offer you this:
Crispy Nummy Not To Horribly Bad For You Apple Crisp
(Picture taken before baking because all the after pictures were hastily taken and therefore bad)
5 large apples
1 cup sugar
1 cup unbleached flour
1Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
1.5 tsp cinnamon (I used Saigon)
3 Tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Core, peel and slice your apples (I think it is just as good without peeling them though) and toss with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Pour in greased 8x8 glass baking dish.
In separate bowl combine, sugar, flour, baking powder and egg until somewhat well combined (will be a bit chunky). Pour this mixture atop apples.
Stir together the melted butter and the tsp of remaining cinnamon. Drizzle over crisp.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown.

That's so beautiful! I envy thoe of you who can embroider. It's not my gift. Would make a lovely pillow.
