  2. I love apple & Blackberries together. I'll be joining Odie in just a little while!

  3. These look delicious! I make my Apple Crisp the same way, but also use oatmeal and margarine, but no egg for the topping.
    I appreciate the comment you left me yesterday, and I agree about being truthful with our children. I did comment back (I don't always) but wasn't sure if you would see it. I always appreciate your input!
