  • 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.

    The Brown Bag Dutch Apple Pie is another one of my favorites of hers. The technique for making it is interesting, but it turns out to be a great apple pie.

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