Happy Monday everybody!!!! During my final foods lab of the semester we had a cooking competition! The only rule was that you had to use a special ingredient assigned to your group by our teacher. We also couldn’t follow any recipes! For our dessert dish my group had to use 2 apples, so we decided to make a cinnamon apple crisp. It was delicious!!! We got 2nd place by 1 point! It was a very fun experience (I felt like I was on Chopped or Iron Chef)! Our dessert was so good that I decided to make it for my family over Thanksgiving break! Since it was Shop Small Saturday this past weekend I decided to go to a local place called Strites’ Orchard to get my apples. My family loved it and I hope that you will as well 🙂
