Mad Rush Week

Last week was so busy getting ready to go to Canberra that I barely had time to scratch myself let alone blog on poor old Cherry Red.  Still it was well worth all the effort.

I did manage to get some baking done though.

Made and apple crumble last weekend and gave it away as none of my family felt like it!  Hmmm!

Great way to use up apples that are past their best.
Love my apple peeler corer!  
Makes apple recipes so much quicker and a lot kinder to my hands.

My kids used to love eating these.  

Loads of stewed apple and minimum effort.

Mmmm,  apple crumble in my Nanna's old dish.  Just says comfort to me!

Monday night was haircut time for Fly Boy and I have a haircut next week so I economized on effort and made both batches of muffins for payment at the same time.
Some raspberry and white chocolate muffins - 
love the pink hue of the batter.

Just a shame that they lose a lot of that pink as they cook.

Also made apple and custard muffins - super simple.  Would have been another good way to use up those apples.  I used a tin of pie apple.

Finally, the day before I left I also managed to make a double batch of Rich Chocolate Cookies for the lovely warrant officer's family - I delivered them in person when I went to Canberra on Thursday and by Friday night they were all gone - love it when my cooking is enjoyed!

Of course, the ones that I left at home for my boys to eat have not been touched so I will be delivering them to my girlfriend this afternoon!

Back home today and hubby leaves late this afternoon for work travel so back into it with the meals etc - you know, the routine exciting stuff.   


Lots to catch up on from being away.  

Til next time................happy stitching!


  1. Oh, that looks so yummy! How could they not want to gobble all of it down? Wish I had one of those peeler/corer babies. I have to do it the old fashioned way, but rarely do I have to peel more than one or two at a time. So glad to have you back!

  2. We have the twin to your peeler. My kids called those apple slices donut apples!

  3. mmm looks so good. I used to have an apple peeler corer and I gave it to my sister. With much regret now.

  4. Oh those cookies were delicious, thank you thank you!! Love Posie

  5. Your apple crumble looks amazing, i love the apple cutter - my children have used them at school but i've never had the pleasure. Must grab one. Have a great wind down after your big weekend away, love Posie

  6. Yummy!! My goodness - how in the world are you finding the time to bake - you are a very busy girl.

  7. Haven't had breakfast yet, now I'm 'really' hungry.
