  1. Hi, I luv your recipes bust must comment that apple pie is not American although for some reason you do claim it as your own. As a Brit I find it irritating. Apple pie is English and originates from the 1300’s. Americans do tend to do that though without the knowledge of the food’s history on lots of foods. I’m not trying to be belligerent because I luv your stuff. Just needed a comment. See extract from web.
    Americans had made the apple truly their own. But the apple pie isn’t a uniquely American dish either, Upton writes. “In fact, the first recorded recipe for apple pie was written in 1381 in England, and called for figs, raisins, pears, and saffron in addition to apples”
    Cheers, John M.

    1. Hi John,
      I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes and appreciate your insight on the origins of apple pie. I have to admit that I didn’t research it, it’s just a saying here, as American as apple pie, ha! Well, maybe not. Thanks for the education 🙂
