  1. I'll have to try some of your recipes, sometime. I love trying to replicate foods from books. Thanks for posting these!
    This weekend, my family just cooked apples wrapped in meat over a fire (as inspired by "Prince Caspian.") It was surprisingly good, but it needed a lot of salt. If you want to try it, I would suggest scoring the apples with a knife before you wrap the meat around (so the juices can flow.) Also you can use bent paper clips to keep the meat on the apple. It might be worth the try if you don't mind the meat too much.

    1. That sounds so fun! Thanks for letting me know. I would have never thought to use paper clips. I might end up trying to make those for my brothers (who aren't vegetarian). And who knows? I may even eat one myself. =) Prince Caspian is one of my favorite Narnia novels...that and The Horse and His Boy.
