Garlic soup

Garlic soupThis was another one of my experiments from a few years ago: garlic soup. I may or may not have used vegetable broth here, but I did use a lot of minced garlic. While the soup was simmering away, I cracked an egg into the pot and scattered it all over. I topped the soup with pepper, oregano, basil, and homemade garlic croutons. I should try making this again!

Baked apples

Baked applesI backed up some of my websites and one of them was a personal site I had three years ago. This picture was among the files I had. I experimented on a lot of recipes using our oven that time, and I thought it would be fun to bake an apple. The apple was sliced and cored to the best of my ability, sprinkled liberally with cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar, then placed in the oven for, oh, I don’t know, 20 minutes, I believe. I don’t even remember what temperature I used, sadly, but whatever it was, it was enough to make the apple slices very juicy and soft.
