I Love Summer

Here's what we've been up to this summer!
Laughlin, Nevada

We went to Hawaii in May..

The Beach

We also went on our first Duffy Ride through Naples!
We have our friend Camille to thank for that :)

Beautiful day!

Summer isn't over yet!

Apple Crisp

Apple's are healthy, right?

This a quick and simple dessert recipe. I had two apples and didn't want them to go bad so I looked up this recipe from The Neely's. I already had all the ingredients in my pantry so I went for it!

Apple Crisp

5 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored, chopped small
1/4 cup finely shopped pecans
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
For the Filling:
Mix all the ingredients together. Place into 7 to 8 ounce ramekins.

For the topping:
Mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Blend the butter into the mixture until it forms pea size lumps. Stir in pecans and sprinkle over filling.

Bake crisps for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

I haven't blogged in forever! 
Can't wait to post the other recipe's I've been doing this summer:)
