A new twist on apple crisp, etc.

Mini White Chocolate Caramel Apple Crisps fresh from the oven!
If you’re new to the gluten-free diet, or if you just want to try out some new gluten-free recipes, I recommend a subscription to Delight Gluten Free magazine. You can purchase it by the issue for only $.99 using your Newstand app on your iPad or iPhone. You can also go to www.delightglutenfree.com for information on how to download their magazine on a variety of devices. Of course, you can also just subscribe to the magazine itself.

This week I tried a recipe from the January-February 2015 issue for Mini White Chocolate Caramel Apple Crisps. Oh, my word! The recipe was delicious, and the presentation—individual apple crisps in 8-ounce canning jars—was a hit.  The jars are full when you load the recipe, but it cooks down so that you can add a scoop of ice cream on top.

I would probably be violating some kind of copyright law if I were to include the recipe in my blog, but I think this recipe (along with about 50 more gluten-free recipes) is well worth the $.99, if you want it. The idea is cute, anyway, and you could even try it with your own favorite apple crisp recipe.

The Prepara can be
used with a reader ...
... or with a cookbook!
While I’m (sort of) on the subject of using online recipes, look at what my kids bought me for Christmas this year! This little iPad/Cookbook holder, called a "Prepara," is “as handy as a button on a shirt,” as my grandmother used to say. (I’m pretty sure they picked it up at Barnes & Noble, and I’m pretty sure it cost around $25. . .)
