I am so happy my sister, Maggie, found this article at my grandmother’s house.  I remember this day like it was yesterday.  It was 30 years ago…. I was 5 years old.  Mom made her Apple Crisp for a local recipe contest.  She won!  My mom winning was very, very exciting to a 5 year old.  Not only did she win $25 (wow… wonder what we did with that!?!) she won a microwave oven.  I love the “oven” part that most of us have dropped over time.   This microwave stayed in our kitchen until I was in late college… approximately 16 years.  I can still see the turn dials and numbers that flipped like an old school alarm clock.  What luck!  Mom is in town for thanksgiving and we are going to make the apple crisp.  I will show the step by step process and the recipe on Thursday.  I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we have over time.

Doesn't it look like she just won the grand prize game! BTW... she was due with my baby sister Maggie the week this photo was taken.
