My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Easy Old Fashion Apple Crisp

I know I just posted an apple recipe, but this is what is for Bible Study today along with a Boys R Us Bean Casserole. I would have made anything with those last green beans to keep from having to can or freeze them.

Yes, there are apples every where so get ready for the apple recipes. This is so easy the kids can do it any night for dessert.

In my neck of the woods I have a large selection to choose from. Liberty, Stayman Winesap, Grimes Golden just to name a few. I love a nice tart apple that will hold it shape when cooking.

For a Blueberry Crisp just subsitute one quart of blueberries for the apples. You might want to forget about the cheddar cheese with the blueberries.

Easy Old Fashion Apple Crisp
Serves 6
print recipe
3 or 4 tart cooking apples
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal or old fashioned, not instant
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon

Arrange apples, pared, cored, and thinly sliced in a well-buttered shallow baking dish. Melt the butter and stir in the sugar, oatmeal, flour, and cinnamon until well mixed. Sprinkle over the apples. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the apples are soft. Serve the crisp warm with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or my personal favorite, thinly sliced cheddar cheese.


  1. My daughter & I made this tonight for her office potluck tomorrow -- luckily, I thought of making a little tiny extra one so we could taste it. Wow, it was good. And, as you advertised, very easy. The office will not get it warm but we did. Also, I'm glad to hear you are feeling better, and thanks for blogging despite being under the weather.

  2. I used to make this almost weekly before my accident and had the recipe in my head. We haven't had this in years and now thanks to you it will be gracing our table again this weekend. It's a funny thing, the brain, choosing what we will remember after an injury. Can't for the life of me remember how to knit or crochet to teach my daughters, forgotten all the recipes I once knew by heart, but I can remember most everything else including my time in the emergency room, when the doctors and nurses were talking that I would never make it through the night.

    Thanks for bringing back an old favorite for me and my family!!
