Another Apple Pie

This post has two geneses: as Fall rolls around to Northern Colorado (37 degrees yesterday, what?!), TC requested an apple pie, after I made Key Lime Pie a few weeks ago.

One of the two things I didn’t do before I left DC was to make VGF pie with my friend Andi. This is for you, Andi, since it’s unlikely I’ll be back in DC to bake pie with you anytime soon.

The Joy of Toys | Sourdough Coffee Cake

**GOTHIC GRANOLA PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT**

This blog is in a serious state of reconstruction. We have switched from Blogger to WordPress thanks to the patient and thorough guidance of Jason at Site Image Studios. Themes will change pretty much daily. It’s like shopping for clothes…no, wait, shopping for clothes is way more straightforward. Jason made the technical side of transferring the GG domain to a different registrar, setting up my email, and configuring Google Apps utterly painless. My site will be ready to expand should I use it for health coaching as well, and I have more features than ever before. Gothic Granola lives on, thanks to Site Image Studios!

 

 

Toys! My Polly Pocket restaurant set from 1992 or 1993 looks like a burger restaurant. But it’s vegan and gluten-free. Literally, because it is plastic. Literally, because there’s nothing to eat, just like at a vegan and gluten-free place. Hah. No, it’s vegan and gluten-free because I say so. Good veggie burgers are difficult to make, and I haven’t found a great recipe yet, so this post’s recipe has little to do with its topic.
