When I was growing up we always used to get little recipe cards in the mail. I loved looking through them and would keep them for “one day when I was a grown up”.
Fast forward a bunch of years and I’m not a college student who loved “playing house” with my then boyfriend (now husband). I pulled out my recipes and the absolute best recipe I had was for an Apple Pie. To this day my husband still LOVES it and begs me to make it every fall when we go apple picking in the beautiful North Carolina mountains.
Today I’m going to share the goodness with you so you can woe your significant others! 🙂 You’ll thank me!
