I have just become acquainted with an amazing treat: roasted apples! For all the gazillion ways in which I’ve been enjoying apples every autumn I can’t believe I never tried roasting them until now.

Are you as sleep-deprived as I am this week from all of this late-night Olympics viewing?  But, man, it’s been worth it.  As someone who has never been mistaken for athletic (does varsity cheerleading count??), I am in absolute awe of our real-life superheroes.  Especially the gymnasts – these girls and guys can fly.
