Apple braid

Apple braid
Hi all, I’m Rachael from La Fuji Mama and am tickled to have been asked by Jenna to share one of my crazy concoctions here on Eat, Live, Run! Jenna is very brave! I’ve had apples on the brain lately, partially due to these three handsome little fellas sitting on my counter top waiting for me to decide what they would become. I love a good apple pie, but wasn’t really in a pie mood. tossed them with cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice and threw them in the oven to start cooking while I made the dough for the braid. When the dough was ready, I rolled it out into a big rectangle, then cut each side into strips. The finished braid went onto a baking sheet into the oven until it was a nice light golden brown. The whole process is much more enjoyable if you have a sous chef to help out. Plus, then you also have someone around to help you eat when you finally get to slice into the braid!

Girl Eats Food - Skittles Cups As gloriously diabetic as Skittles are, there aren’t that many ways of tasting the rainbow™ outside of listlessly inhaling them from a vending machine packet. Put them in ice-cream, and they freeze into molar-smashing rocks. Put them in cookies, and they collapse into tasteless grit.
