Today was a great day! I went and visited the family that I use to nanny in high school. I hadn't seen them in 5 years. The girls have grown up so much. Made me realize how much I missed them and babysitting for that matter. I must say, being a nanny was my favorite job I've had so far. It's much more rewarding than any of my other jobs. Too bad I can't really do that for a living. :( I'm back in Fargo now. It was nice... I got to sleep the whole way home! Hope you all had as great of a Sunday as I did. :D
Here is an apple pie recipe that I think is great!!! Try it out! Nutrition info at the bottom!
With all that delicious fruit an apple pie should be healthy, but the truth is a slice can have as much as 750 calories and 30 grams of fat. For the most part, the culprit is the crust. I use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fiber and lower the saturated fat by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance. A slice has half the calories of a typical version and only 10 grams of fat—Sweet!
