  • Tomorrow would have been my dear mother’s birthday. As the temperatures cool and leaves turn, I think of the wonderful things Mama used to make in the fall. Her Fresh Apple Cake and Apple Crisp are some of the things for which my mom was noted.

    But if she was in a hurry, she would turn to my aunt’s Easy Apple Cobbler.
