Bella loved the beach...
Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of taking care of this beautiful dog during her final days. Bella was ill with cancer. Her owner loved her very very much. Sadly, she could not keep her in her new home due to the lease agreement. One of Bella's favorite things to do was eat the apples that would fall from the trees in the yard of her old home. Ordinarily, I like to include a picture of the finished product. However, this particular pie was gone before I could get a good picture of the final product. Perhaps, it is just a personal reminder of our temporal nature in this world? This apple pie recipe is dedicated to her memory. Rest in peace Bella we will never forget you! :)
I have been baking breads, pies, cakes, and other treats ever since I was old enough to turn on the oven by myself. Although baking is my first love, I'm pretty good at the other stuff too! Over the years I have prepared everything from a pot of beans, to a whole roasted pig over an open fire!
