Apple, Walnut and Coconut Crisp

"If you've been looking at my recipes, you'll have noticed I'm not into 'glam' desserts or cooking. I love homey fare, things that put a smile on my family's face. This recipe qualifies. Don't forget the ice cream or whipped cream."

    This was lovely. I grated fresh coconut instead of using dried. I may use half the sugar next time, then sprinkle the remaining half over the top to make a crisper topping. Halve the recipe if only cooking for three people - this wasn't as nice the next day.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
