BSI: Corn Bitelettes

This is a fun, easy, CORN-y recipe that I made up for this week’s BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient)…  I’m trying to use up some orange juice that’s in the fridge, so I incorporated that as well.  It adds a really subtle sweetness that is mandatory for all good cornbread.  And the bitelettes are just too cute.

Awesome Macrobiotic Apple-Raspberry Pie

This recipe for apple pie is a far cry from the buttery, sugary goodness that my Grammie serves up each year at Thanksgiving… but it’s different in a good way!  Bobby and I both loved the flavors and textures of this unsweetened-yet-strangely-traditional apple pie.  I hope you try it out, because it’s really delicious.

The inspiration comes from Meg’s blog – she recently posted this recipe for apple pie.  I made a smaller and slightly different version.
