Dreamy Apple Pie

Yesterday was an interesting day! I had gotten very little sleep and so I was pretty much a zombie at school. A sleepy zombie. I slept through physics and art history (to be fair, there we were watching a movie in art history…about buildings and stuff. I was not the only one who fell asleep). In English we started reading The Dollhouse and I knew I would sleep through it if I was just listening, anabolics so I volunteered for a speaking part. I still managed to almost nod-off between lines. I knew I had to do something about this sleepy-ness-nonsense so I took a legit nap in study hall. I was fine for the rest of the day, just super hyper in my delirious sleep-deprived state. Only 8 more days of school before I am out for Christmas!!!

Yesterday evening, I had my interview with a Brown alumni (alumna? alum? alumnaei?) at Starbucks. Many schools allow you to arrange interviews with alumn…uhh people who graduated from that school in the hopes that they’ll get a better sense of who you are. The woman I met with was very nice and we had a very laid-back conversation. She told me a little about her experience at Brown it made me want to go there even more! I should be hearing if I’ve been accepted in just over two weeks which is pretty nerve-wracking. I want to go so bad but I know that if I don’t get in, I’ll go somewhere else and it’ll be great. But I still wanna get in. A lot. As I was driving home, I had to get on the interstate. The sign said that the entrance was in the right lane. So I moved all the way over. To my left. It took me several minutes before I realized that I was on the left instead of right. The girl who just had her Brown interview can’t tell her left from right. Yeah..I’m pretty special.

I’m still not done sharing my Thanksgiving recipes! I’ve already shared the appetizers I made (Hot Spinach dip and Pumpkin pie dip) and I shared the Marshmallow pie I made, but I just had to share this apple pie. I didn’t actually make this pie, my mom did, but it is one of my favoritest pies. I love apple pies in general, but this one is extra special tasty.

So I don’t really like this picture of the apple pie slice. It really just doesn’t do the pie justice. For all you food bloggers out there, do you still post pictures of food even though they’re not your best? Do you try to retake them? Do you just not post that recipe at all? I try to take good pictures, but I’m still learning about food photography so not all the photos I take turn out good. And it can also be hard because a lot of the baking I do is at night where I don’t have pretty natural lighting. I usually try to wait to take the picture the next day, but then I can’t take step by step photos or a picture of the finished product before people eat it. I appreciate all of you guys who have come to my blog and leave comments. It makes me super happy! And any feedback or advice about the photographs (or writing) would be very appreciated :)

I hope you’re able to make this pie sometime soon because it truly is AMAZING! It’s a Pioneer Woman recipe (which explains it’s delicious-ness) so I’m just going to link to her website. My mom follows Pioneer Woman’s recipe, she just left the pecans out of the topping. Either way it’s delicious!

Dreamy Apple Pie

Top it with whipped cream, ice cream, or Pioneer Woman’s hard sauce, or all three! ;)

Enjoy :)
