Skillet Apple Pie

I found a great recipe for a skillet apple pie from and changed it up a little - it was delicious!

(pie filling)
4 pounds of honey crisp apples
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg white
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
(pie crust)
2 cups of flour
1 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of water

  1. Peel apples, cut into 1/2 inch thick wedges, toss in cinnamon and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar - I put them in a large bowl and put the stop on and shook them up
  2. Prepare pie crust - "fork" together flour, shortening and water
  3. Roll out 1/2 of pie crust
  4. Preheat oven to 350
  5. Melt butter and brown sugar in 10 inch skillet for about 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves
  6. Remove from heat and place pie crust in skillet over brown sugar and butter mixture
  7. Spoon apple mixture into pie crust
  8. Roll out other pie crust and place on top of apple mixture, press down sides with fork
  9. Whisk egg whites, brush on top of pie crust, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, cut 5 slits in center of pie crust to let heat escape
  10. Mine took about an hour and 15 minutes - I started checking it at one hour - then let it cool for about 30 minutes

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!


My August 2017 List

I cannot believe that it's the end of summer and I am leaving for college this week! Today I am sharing my monthly list for August.

I read a post in the middle of the month and it seriously was so great at explaining when the best time to post is if you're interested you can find it here.
The shows that I have been binging this month have been Jane the Virgin - the new season 3 is now out on Netflix, this telenovela is so worth the watch and Desperate Housewives - I watched the entire show, all 8 seasons, a couple of years ago and now I am re-watching this great show on Hulu.

I recently picked up this Smashbox Primer Water, and so far I have been LOVING it. If you haven't already checked it, I would definitely do so. I love spraying it on in the afternoon to freshen up my makeup!
