All we want for Christmas is our injuries to heal!

Hello everyone,

If your wondering where I’ve been its been a rough week. It’s not bad enough I’m down with an injury but the other day my spouse dislocated his knee at work. We look like a hot mess together! Our family Christmas photos sure will give people something to talk about this year.

Thankfully I’m not in charge of hosting a Christmas dinner this year. We are guests at our families dinners one today and one tomorrow. Saves us from having to do a lot of work in our banged up state. I have however prepared a dessert for dinner and I just wanted to share that recipe with you guys!

I found this recipe on I’ve tried many apple crisp recipes and this one is by far my favourite one. Check it out here. I used granny smith apples to even out the sweetness, I’ve tried many apple combinations but granny smith works best for my taste.

Merry Christmas

  1. That’s the same apple crisp recipe I use as my base! It’s a great basic starter. Granny Smiths are great, and I “tart it up” a bit too by throwing in a handful of mixed berries. I have a bag of frozen ones that I use for oatmeal in the morning; strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc – it will turn your crisp scarlet even with just a sprinkling of berries but I’ve found it adds a little extra flavor to the crisp that works well. In my family the “Crisp” is actually the favorite part so I normally scale that part up as well. I also find that this recipe is VERY juicy. I never add the water they call for and it’s always a bit on the runny side, which probably has something to do with the variety of apples I use I imagine. But I’ll attest that’s a great and easy starter!

    1. I have to agree often with those recipes I find online I’m modifying it just to make it work this one I can follow exactly and it turns out. I never have a problem with it bring runny but I noticed other said the same in the comments. Like you said it maybe the type of apple being used. Also I usually split it into two small pans so that may have something to do with it. I love the idea of throwing in mixed berries I’ll be trying that for sure! I love finding these great base recipes too that easily can be added on. Like I said I choose this one as it doesn’t need tons if modification to work. Thanks for your feedback!
