Apple Turnovers

26 Apr apple turnover

We got some phyllo dough from the free table at work (thank goodness for working at a food website) and I was scratching my head on how I could use it.

At first, I thought I should make baklava, but I didn’t have any nuts. I had some apples so I made apple turnovers (who needs puff pastry? Not this gal).

I put some glaze on top to finish them off. They were good; I ate about three in the first hour.


BBQ Ribs

This flexitarian situation is turning into more of a straight-omnivore deal. When does a flexitarian become just a regular eater? Beats me! Forget the labels and let’s just eat some food and enjoy it, shall we?

On that note, I made delicious ribs! I’ve never made ribs before so I wanted to give it a go. All I did was put them on a baking sheet at 400ºF until they were mostly done. Then I slathered on Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce and cooked for about 15 more minutes. Voila!

I think next time I’d make my own sauce, because it doesn’t seem hard.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

15 Apr strawberry rhubarb pie

I bought all the ingredients to make strawberry rhubarb pie this weekend, but I wasn’t looking forward to rolling out pie dough (even if it was just Betty Crocker mix). I bought some mini graham cracker crusts as a backup.

It just so happens that I was reading Real Simple today and it had a strawberry rhubarb pie recipe. Fate! I had some downtime tonight so I made the recipe in the form of a crisp with oatmeal and brown sugar.

I’ve never made this type of pie before, despite my love of fruit pies, but I impressed myself. It was good!
