and apples apples everywhere.

so i'm especially delighted to have the talented jewelry artist sara thomas with us today, sharing both a yummy apple pie oatmeal DIY recipe + offering a beautiful autumnal giveaway from her simply gorgeous fall 2010 jewelry collection! you're gonna love it!


sara writes: i made up this recipe a couple of years ago. i love fall and always have lots of apples because my uncle is an apple farmer. when the weather starts to get cooler, i want a yummy hot breakfast that will keep my full! oatmeal is so healthy and it's not hard to make the "real" kind yummy so you dont have to eat the processed instant stuff!

:: apple pie oatmeal ::

1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup rolled oats (organic if possible)
1 small apple, peeled and chopped
3 Tb. (real!) maple syrup- you could also use turbinado or brown sugar
1 Tb. butter
1 tsp cinnamon
nutmeg to taste
1/4 cup milk

Bring water, oats and apples to a boil over med. heat uncovered. Stir frequently to avoid burning! Once water has been soaked up and oats are cooked, remove from heat. Add the maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk and stir until mixed through. 
..............
good golly - that sounds delicious, sara! thanks so much!
and just as delectable is her beautiful work as an eco-friendly jewelry artist!

i just love sara's new fall 2010 collection: inspired by nature, capturing the hues and feel and emotions of our delightful new season! the pieces are unique, charming, engaging, inspiring, & wonderful - just like sara herself!

  88. My favorite apple recipe is this Crustless Apple Pie (it's so simple but delicious, the topping tastes like snickerdoodles).

    Crustless Apple Pie
    prep time about 15 minutes, bake time 45 minutes.

    5 or 6 apples, (I use Granny Smith) cut into wedges about 1/4" thick
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 cup flour
    1 cup sugar (light brown)
    3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
    pinch of salt
    1/2 tsp vanilla

    Preheat oven to 350º.
    Lay the sliced apples in the pie pan - it should be about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Sprinkle the tablespoons of cinnamon and sugar on top.
    In a small mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt. This mixture will be thick like cookie dough and so put the "crumbles" on top of the apples, covering the top.

    Bake for about 45 minutes

  108. My favorite peice is this:harvest moon necklace - because my very favorite neclace that I have now is my tree of life necklace that I won and this looks very much like it, only like you say for the Harvest moon - I see nothing spooky in it (though I do see how people could) I see fall, and pie, and bon fires in it. I love that.

  141. My favorite apple recipe is honestly apple pie. I make my own crust (no shortening, only butter from a recipe I found on youtube, believe it or not), a ridiculous amount of unmeasured cinnamon, apples, lemon juice, sugar, and of course, topped with french vanilla ice cream. Drool.

    I just read about another blogger's recipe for apple butter, though..........
