Sweet Caramelized Apples

These sweet caramelized apples were part of our breakfast. I made a baked ricotta pancake to remind us of Sicily. Topped with the apples it was like being right back on the Island enjoying a typical Sicilian breakfast.

The common belief is that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. One that will last as it becomes embedded within ourselves. So, with hard lockdown being 3 weeks long, it presented the perfect opportunity for new habits. I decided from the get go that I would train first thing in the morning, four times per week. Our alarm was set for 05h45 and after my morning coffee I got up and went to our home gym. We are now back at work full time and I am pleased to report that I am still exercising as frequently. In fact, it is nice not to come to work in the dark during winter. I also tested one recipe per day within the first three week period. I let that relax a bit for the fourth week. And then stopped during the week when I returned to work.

Mainly because when I got home I had housework to do. And being creative takes time and that was a bit scarce. But then my domestic goddess came back to work and I had a choice to make. I could fall back into my old ways of TV watching in the afternoons. Or I could spend time in my kitchen. I decided to do small tasks each day. Nothing complicated and sometimes I did a recipe over a few days. I even made things more than once, like these caramelized apples. Not because they did not work out the first time. But because I wanted better photographs. Now, that is something I never thought I would say. But part of the new is that I have moved my ‘studio’ from the kitchen to the spare room. And it is taking me a while to get used to the setup.

  1. Tandy I love cooked apple and this recipe has caught my eye because I have coconut sugar in the pantry which I need to use. I can’t get up that early in Winter to exercise. Summer will be here soon enough though:) Stay safe and healthy, Pauline

  2. These look lovely, Tandy. I haven’t had our domestic back and I don’t intend to either. I have paid her out until the end of the year but I actually prefer doing my own housework. I don’t intend to ever work from the office again either, not on a full time basis. Once a week would be more than enough of that place for me.

    1. Those changes sound great Robbie. I don’t enjoy housework and my domestic feeds a lot of people, so it’s a win-win situation for both of us.

  3. It sounds like you at least made productive use of your lockdown time. Your apples look delicious and I can just imagine how many things they might work for. We’re probably just weeks away from the new apple harvest now!
