Bought five pounds of Arkansas Black Apples today at the farmers market. The taste is similar to a Granny Smith with a twinge of cherry undertones. It was my first time to taste them. In the picture it's compared to a Gala. For some reason, the Arkansas Black Apple reminds me of the poisoned apple in Snow White.
Last night I made these Zucchini Nut Muffins with a zucchini from Mom's garden. They were delish. Substitutions I made were: for the oil - 1/2 c butter plus 1/2 c coconut oil. For the sugar, I used all sucanat. Lastly, I used one cup of whole wheat flour and two cups white.
Today I made sourdough cheese crackers (of all things!) They just might be the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. Definitely it was the best tasting today. :) If you live in LR and want some sourdough starter, I'm happy to share.
With all this to eat, a girl's got to drink something. My new favorite: sparkling water. Hubby has been drinking it for a while but I just could not coerce my taste buds to like it. Today I put a splash of vanilla and maple syrup in the glass and it was just right.
Got a new favorite recipe I should try?
