These perfect little guys are the best for popping into your mouth as you run out the door in the morning. Hot out of the oven, they fill the house with an unbelievably comforting scent of apples, spices, and homey goodness. Their edges are ever so slightly crispy, their centers are as moist and light as a cloud. You are going to be surprised by how many you can eat!
My Grandpa, my dad’s dad, grew up in Augusta, Georgia – an interesting spot for my original Irish ancestors to wind up. This is my main claim to being actually southern. After attending Georgia Tech and becoming a hell of an engineer, this southern boy moved to Detroit.
And even in Detroit, my Grandma managed to find grits to cook for her husband. My dad grew up with grits as a breakfast staple, and to this day he makes the best grits I’ve ever tasted.
The key to the perfect trail mix is to hit that ration of sweet-n-savory right on the nose. Here, the sweet tartness of dried fruits and chocolate compliments the salty pretzels, nuts, and goldfish. The combination of textures and flavors is so satisfying – perfect for an extra energy boost on the run.
The only thing better than a fresh banana cream pie? A banana cream pie whose crust is a giant chocolate chip cookie!! This is a fun recipe, great for parties, always a hit at a summer cookout or picnic.
