If you want an appetizer that comes together quickly and is absolutely DELICIOUS… then look no further! This warm Apple Crisp Baked Brie is perfect to serve this Fall for any occasion. Cinnamon covered apples, crunchy toasted pecans, sweet brown sugar and chewy old-fashioned oats smother melted baked Brie. Scoop it up with a salted cracker and it’s pure perfection. I promise this one WILL be gone in a heartbeat.
I’ve mentioned before that my husband is quite the craftsman. He likes doing projects around the house, especially if he gets to use his power tools. We’ve recently taken on a project that has become bigger than we both imagined. He is building a loft bed for our 4-year old daughter. It’s not just any loft bed, it’s gonna look like a house with shutters, a roof, windows, flower boxes and a picket fence. It’s going to be spectacular… at least in my mind it is! Ha! So far, he has the frame of the bed made with windows cut out and the trim completed for each window. I feel like it’s taking FOR. EVER. I just want it done. This is seriously the biggest project he has ever attempted and with 5 children that want to join him outside, climb up into the bed and just watch the magic happen in his workshop it’s pretty much going in slow motion. I’m grateful for a husband who has the ability to literally create these images that are in my brain. We always forget about the MOST difficult part… finding the time and patience to complete the project! Reality hits and I remember… Oh wait, I have to contain these 5 little monkeys while he builds the thing! It’s no small task. And did I mention that the other 4 children are totally jealous that their sister is getting a custom-made bed and are fully expecting that they will be next? Ummmm, not a chance.
