I've had a hankerin' for apple pie ever since I caught Mad Hungry with Lucinda's show on apple pie! I kept hinting to Mr. Fanatic that I'd like him to make me one. I sent him the recipe on a Facebook message. I even bought the apples & arranged them nicely in a pretty basket.(more on this later)
Saturday, I made an apple cake... Yummy, but not an apple pie.
Finally Saturday night Mr. Fanatic said he'd make me an apple pie on Sunday...
....and he did. We didn't have a large enough pie pan, so he made it in one of his cake pans. Y'all know he used to be a pastry chef, right?
Look at this beauty!
As Mr. F put it in the oven, he said "this is worthy of a blog post"...so I went & got my camera to share it with you.
Here it is right out of the oven....it smelled SOOOOOO good!
It was so yummy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
Had to give you one more look!
Life is good! (and so is my husband!)
Oh, here's the recipe link for Lucinda's recipe on
A few days ago I caught Mad Hungry again & she was making bbq pork ribs, potato salad & cole slaw... I think I'll send the hubs another message on Facebook and this time I think I should invite a few friends over!
