Nothing says fall like a fresh crisp New York State apple. Last weekend my family and I officially commemorated fall by picking fresh galas, granny smiths, and more  (with names I can’t recall) at Green Acre Farms in Greece, NY. The off and on rain didn’t deter us and we had fun bonding, picking and running from the bees. Pictures on that visit coming on Monday’s week end round up. Until then I’m sharing my simple and A+mazing Apple Blueberry Crisp recipe initially published in my cookbook: Cooking with Fibromyalgia. What’s your favorite apple variety? Let me know.

Have an apple every day,
