    My 7-y.o. daughter is enamored of cooking lately. She's currently on a baked potato kick (in the microwave) and has helped me make bread and some other stuff.

    So tonight we're making apple pie, I decided.

    Love pie, and love apples, but for some reason I'm not a fan of the apple pie.

    My mom is a fabulous pie maker, and made lots of them when I was growing up (and after!)

    I was never a huge fan of apple pie, either...until I became an adult.

    My kids like it, though. My daughter doesn't like sweets, but she likes apples. And my boy will eat anything sweet.

    And it's CHEAP. Apples are cheap. And relatively healthy, all things considered. And it makes the house smell wonderful.

    I like oranges, but I hate orange juice. Go figure.

    AllieBaba ... I hope you had some vanilla bean ice cream to go with that apple pie!

    With OJ you get what you pay for.

    Tropicana Pure Premium with some pulp is as close to a fresh squeezed orange as you can get.

    I live off of it.

    ... lifting the plate up to lick the remainder of the melted ice cream and crust pieces ...

    Mmmmmmmm ... apple pie. Now when you read that, make it sound like Homer Simpson and his Duff beer. lol

    I like to use a mix of apples, but I do agree that granny smiths are a nice addition.
    Are we talking chunks of apple? I use my corer, peeler, slicer machine when I prep my apples. Some prefer bigger pieces of apple.
