Heirloom Apple Pie

"So I've decided to give it up. I'm sharing the recipe. For years I've been fiercely protecting the recipe with my life, only to learn that other members of my family have already shared it with non-family members... It's been in my family for several generations, with everyone adding their own little touches, making it what it is now. I have a hard time trying to eat any other apple pie. It's so simple and so good."

Culinary school drop-out (happy cook)! My name is Meg, as my public name might suggest, and I'm 20 years old. So far, I've been a cook my whole life, at home and in restaurants, working as a Baker's Assistant right now. I was raised in a commercial bakery and general store as well run by my aunt and mom. I'm engaged to an amazing guy, who I met in high school in a restaurant prep course. We both went to college for Culinary Arts/Chef Training, but neither found the program very satisfying. As it stands, we're both happiest cooking, so long as it's not in a kitchen lab. I've been nosing around 'Zaar since I was about 13 or 14, and it's been a huge source of learning for me, back when I didn't even know what a roux was, haha. If you've seen me around before, I'm the former SugarMegnolia. Also, I write a blog, however, I'm not always the best at keeping up with it, but try to put in my best effort whenever I get around to writing. The link is here, please give it a quick look-see!
