  1. Wow! This was incredible. I would serve this to guests, and I believe I will the next time we have a family dinner. The caramel sauce was simply amazing. I cut the amount of brandy in half (using 3/4 cup), because I was afraid it would overpower the dish. I needn't have worried. This was very smooth, with no "alcohol" taste to it at all. The caramel sauce is sweet, but paired with the very tart Granny Smith apples, the entire dish is just out of this world. Thank you! :)
  2. I can't beleive that this wonderful apple recipe is not rated as yet! I only used a couple of tablespoons of brandy, but increased the butter for the apples, I am looking forward to serving this for dessert tonight topped off with the caramel sauce YUMMMMMM! thanks Ev!...Kitten:)


<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.
