When I was a little girl (growing up in Lubbock, Texas), my mother used to make Apple Strudels all the time. The smell was intoxicating. I remember coming into the house after playing outside or being at school and the smell of baking apples, topped with cinnamon and sugar was more than I could bear. My mouth would water [...]

Happy Thanksgiving! One of my favorite recipes to make during the fall and through the holidays is apple pie. I have been using the same recipe forever! No kidding! A family favorite!
