Apple Crisp

I love any dessert made with apples. They remind me of my grandma to be honest.

When I was around 12, I would go over to her house and she would teach me how to make apple pie. It is one of my most vivid memories of her. She was cute, and always tried to protect me from "the stove."

At the age of 12 I was already cooking by myself at home, as my mom didn't really enjoy cooking and I didn't enjoy cleaning. So I would make dinner and she would be on dish duty. (I have to admit, I love a clean kitchen but still to this day do not enjoy dishes :)).

My grandma would teach me how to measure things, and sometimes it was a dash here and there but she would never let me go near the stove. That is what grandma's do, teach you but make sure you're extra safe. As I write this it put a smirk on my face as I can picture her and I baking together and she getting antsy about me going near the stove (even though I cooked most meals at home). It is one of my favourite memories of her.

She also taught me how to make lasagna, cheese deals (english muffin with cheese whiz and bacon - not healthy but tasted amazing), and banana muffins.
