Baked Apples for Tastes to Remember



I'm getting this entry in by the skin of my teeth, because today is the cut off for entry's to Sarah from Homemade's food blog event - Tastes to Remember. I've been craving these recently and especially after seeing the fun Dharm has been having with his kids I decided that this really was what I wanted to share with you all. I am a very lucky girl because not only is my Mum an awesome cook, so is my Dad, he would have cooked a lot of our weeknight meals during my teenage years. He loved to experiment and throw in a little of this and a little of that which made it fun to watch but what made it funner was that he'd sometimes do some crazy dancing and singing while he was at it. Aaaanyways I digress, occasionally Dad would ask us if we wanted some dessert and very often he had these in mind - Baked Apples. I love these bad boys! Everytime I have one I picture myself sitting at the dinner table with Mum, Dad and my sister again.

I like doing these with a little cinnamon sometimes, or with dried apricots or fresh strawberries but this one recipe is true to the original.

  6. It's so wonderful how certain foods provoke great memories. The only time my dad cooked he made a very hot and spicy chicken- burned my insides. ;)
