Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the coolness of the air, the changing color of the leaves.

Gardeners are harvesting their bounty of fruits and vegetables. Friends are being invited over for "get-togethers" and enjoying each others company.

This is a new recipe that I found and I've tweaked it a bit to fit my taste. When cooking with apples I generally use Jonathan's or Winesap apples. They tend to have a better taste and hold their crunch a bit more.
