My first apple pie

Last night I made my first apple pie. I have toyed with pumpkin and lemon meringue in the past, but never an apple pie or anything with a double crust. After perusing the recipes in Cooks Illustrated, Magnolia Bakery, and America Test Kitchen, I decided to use my friend Sarah’s dough recipe and the filling from Cooks Illustrated.

Voila!

Voila!

Alex had the idea to make potato leek soup (can you tell we’re on a soup kick?) yesterday after spotting some enormous leeks at the Ballard Farmers Market. He used the chicken stock that we made from our roasted chicken last week and the final product was a rich, slightly earthy, hearty meal. I’m glad there is more in the fridge and freezer to get me through the week. First midterm on Friday…
