French apple turnovers

As a child, my favourite day of the year was the much-anticipated family trip to one of the gigantic superstores for our annual back-to-school shopping trip.

Beautiful new notebooks. Pens in every colour of the rainbow and the fountain pen I had been dreaming of for month. And -best of all- the promise of warm-from-the-oven classic apple turnovers for le goûter.

It truly was the most wonderful time of the year!

My schoolyears are now far behind me but my love for the puffed up little pockets of autumn joy of my childhood remain.

Festive Apple & Cranberry Pie

I spent the afternoon cooking my first ever #Worksgiving dinner for my colleagues yesterday.

From that epic adventure, I take away a couple of things:

1. I am completely lost in a kitchen that doesn’t have scissors.

2. As surprised as I might be about it, I do like cranberry with turkey.

3. Cooking an entire meal, complete with a table worth of sides, in one afternoon in borderline insane.

4. Pie is a Thanksgiving staple (or life staple if you ask me) but baking one in a hot kitchen is not a good idea.

Luckily, I baked this little show-stopper the night before.
