issues with a tissue


G
eez I almost forgot I had a blog! Where have I been, what have I been doing? All the pumpkin stuff going around and I have yet to make anything pumpkin, all the cookies and cakes and I have yet to bake a single thing. Slacker does not even begin to cover it. I have a huge assortment of Marx Foods wild mushrooms I have to contend with, I have a big box of Scharffen Berger chocolate powder, nibs and what nots to inspire me in some way, I have more dried chiles from Marx Foods than the average person knows what to do with ranging from chipotle to guajillo to puya, I have enough Asian Grocer goodies to keep me busy until March - so whats the problem? No problem! The problem is in the blog, the blog is lazy not me - I still cook, I still make unique things with experimental flavors - its that my camera and my blog seem to be a little estranged lately - maybe they are breaking up and they forgot to tell me.



Who cares about the relationship issues my camera has any way - I am the Alpha Dad - I am master of my domain - I call the shots. Today these shots were called and the result was caramel apples - a total disregard for all the ingredients I should be using!



When you have children you like to give them good memories and what better memory than making caramel apples?



Some people do the dip - I do the drizzle and its best to try and sprinkle the toasted coconut before they start to set - dont follow my example, but if you want to copy me exactly then I should mention that the apple is a Macintosh.

I've seen it here in the US-we never made this in India(so I have no fond memories of eating it as a kid)!! I guess my son will love it, but he'll have to settle with an 'acer'!!

Dawn said...

Dog what are you gonna do with the Scharfenberg chocolate? Don't let that puppy just sit there man.
I haven't done anything pumpkin yet either. Or apple!!! LOL
But I always do caramel. Wait that sounded dirty.

Marjie said...

I love doing the great food things with the kids. They do always remember these things. I love caramel. It never gets melted and poured over anything, because it doesn't last that long!

The Diva on a Diet said...

Total disregard and anarchy by way of caramel apples ... like it, I do!

5 Star Foodie said...

I still haven't made caramel apples for my daughter, will have to do it this week. Looking forward to seeing your future creations with all these goodies you've got!

Enjoying your blog, keep up the good work, my mouth waters and smiles at the same time.

girlichef said...

Yes, so far fall seems to be my "summer" (lots of people slowed way down then I noticed)...that said...quality not quantity ;) I can eat these by the bushel. Shouldn't. But do.

The Duo Dishes said...

Never tried this, but there's no better time than now. And there's no better topper than caramel.

the ungourmet said...

The last time I tried to make caramel apples...Well, I'll just say it wasn't pretty. Now these are pretty!

Maybe your camera and your blog could use couples counseling???

Denise said...

They look delish. MY kids dentist wouldnt approve, but what the hell...

Chef Fresco said...

Aww how adorable! I never had candy apples growing up - I think I was deprived!

Nila Rosa said...

Ya know...I've never finished a whole caramel apple before. I'm always spent after eating 1/4 of it.

Disney makes chocolate and caramel apples that are the size of my head. Never had the guts to pick one up tho.

angela@spinachtiger said...

I got confused and thought you were talking about computers. Macintosh. My head is in wrong place. I need to eating caramel apples.

Fresh Local and Best said...

Those caramel apple look so good. It's true fun childhood memories are closely attached to these items, especially around Halloween. I like that you drizzled the caramel vs. dipping them. :)

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

I like the drizzled look! And it's a nice thick one! Such yummy treats! I have a box from Scharffen Berger too that I've barely touched. I haven't been in a chocolate mood.

lk (Healthy Delicious) said...

yum! I made caramel apples last weekend, there's something so naughty about them

Tangled Noodle said...

Slacker?! Your last post was 3 days ago - I'm averaging 1 post every 10 days. In comparison to you, that makes me 'sloth-like'.

I've got apples, I've got a caramel recipe - I'm going to have caramel apples!

♥peachkins♥ said...

This is a good idea. Coconut on caramel apple!!! I ♥ it!

Jenn said...

So mnay goodies wo many things you can do with them.

I love caramel apple. I need to get me some. Reminds me of being at the fair.

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

Pretty great comeback - these apples look frighteningly good. I'm ready for trick or treat.

bren said...

soo soo sinful, but soooo good. geesh, what do you do with all the "missing" sugar!! :)

Donna-FFW said...

One of my favorite memories besides caramel apples was bobbing for apples.

Now what is running through your mind right now, I already know,big guy!

monica said...

oh no, domestic drama with the apparatuses.... I'll have one of those macintoshes to go please, be generous with the caramel, more gentle with the coconut.. :o)

starrlife said...

Mac are the best for those apples. A bakery nearby makes these pumpkin whoopie pies that I might murder for! They melt in your mouth....
I love those pics BTW.

Jill said...

My mother used to make these when I was a little girl. Great memories!

TavoLini said...

MacIntosh is my favorite! Are the apples from Michigan? (they should be!)

I love caramel apples--good call with the coconut. My blog has been lazy, too.

Bina said...

I love caramel apples. Yummy!

And I haven't done anything pumpkin yet either! I haven't even bought any for my kids to carve! I save all the seeds and then bake them. They only last about a day or two because between three kids and the husband, they get eaten pretty quick!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

Mmmmm caramel covered apples...the best! Sooo....a big box of scharffen berger chocolate...share the wealth man:)

snugs said...

such a good daddy you are...and about time you got yourself back in gear too!

teresa said...

caramel apples really are a wonderful way to create memories. i'm not even much of a fan, but i love them because they remind me of being a kid!

Angie's Recipes said...

Never had caramel apples when I was a kid.....they look so scrumptious!

Jormengrund said...

Um.. I have a silly question.

Being the IT geek that I am, how much caramel would I need to coat a Mac, and just how would I get the mess out of the keyboard afterwards?

Sorry, I thought it was funny..

Yasmeen said...

Such a memorable treat this would be,the coconut topping is a great idea.

Just telling it like it is said...

Omgosh it is that time of year!! My favorite time...I dress up and eat plenty of Carmel apples...picture perfect!!!

Tanya Kristine said...

a better memory would be CANDIED apples.

always hated the caramel. but then again, that's why you and i arent' married.

buffalodick said...

Dip- more caramel!

Erica said...

Those apples look fantastic!!!

Anette said...

I like!

Chou said...

Ha, I love how you describe blog abandonment--it's absolutely true. Caramel apples are the best fall thing in the universe.

My Carolina Kitchen said...

These are darling and would please children from three to ninety-three.
