Apple Pie

So in celebration of Choosuk and the first day of fall, I made a journey to a friend's apt on the upper east side to make my first ever apple pie.

We made three different kinds, but only 2 are pictured.
The little ones house a bit of scotch :)

Crabbing Trip

A couple of girlfriends and I went crabbing down in South Jersey for the weekend.
What's better than bonding over casting cages into the sea and then eating the fresh catch of the day?

So the best way to enjoy the freshness of the sea is to steam these little pinchers in beer and vinegar with a little bit of salt.
