An apple crisp is a comforting, delicious dessert. It isn't the most photographic thing in the food realm, but trust me that this recipe is a winner.
I've been meaning to mention something personal with you folks, which normally I would keep private, but in this case it affects the blog directly. A few months back I found out that I have a degenerative eye disease, keratoconus.
I am newly into my thirties and dealing with a lot of vision problems which is frustrating for every day life and also for the blog. When I take photographs and am trying to take a picture that is in focus, my eye situation makes it extremely hard. As I am editing photographs on my computer, even having zoomed in and putting my face up to the monitor, it is extremely hard to tell what is or isn't in focus.
In the winter I am planning on having eye surgery (fingers crossed that I am a good candidate), so hopefully down the road it is less of an issue. For the time being, my apologies if the photographs aren't as perfect or sharp as I would like. I am trying my best for you guys and I appreciate you hanging in there.
With that out of the way, bake up a dish of pure fall goodness. Spicy, soft pears and apples with a crisp oatmeal topping. I prefer it plain so the flavor of the pears really comes through, but feel free to garnish with lightly sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
