Gluten-Free Apple Pie

So after I had made the Pecan pie,I thought I would make a Apple Pie.
When I had ask what kind of pies they (Jim and Chris) would want me to make.
Jim asked for the Pecan pie and Chris asked for Apple pie.

This time I decided to be Semi home made Kwei-Mei  hehehehehe
I started out with a pre-made gluten free pie shell

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

1 apple sliced
and you don't see the can but it is 1 can apple pie filling
oh yea, I got lazy!
line button of pie shell with fresh apple slices

por the can of apple pir filling over the fresh apples

I cover it tin foil so it won't get burned
Put the pie in a preheated oven (350 degrees)
bake covered for 30 minutes
In the mean time melt 1/4 cup of butter and add to it 1/8cup of corn syrup
and 1/4 cup of gluten free flour mix
the mixture will be sticky
spread it over the top of the pie and put it back into the oven for another 15 minutes
It turned out pretty good

it'll look like this

as I am posting this both pies are half gone!!!

Fabulous crepes, hold the gluten

Once in a while I like to make sure to give my family a really special treat. Most of the time those treats are just boxes of chocolate candy. But I thought that this time I would do something extra special for everyone. Our daughter Lily was just told that she's gluten intolerant, so I decided to make something this weekend for all of us that she would be able to enjoy too.

I went online to figure out something that would be nice for a Sunday morning breakfast. While I was looking online through recipes, I actually came across some and when I looked through them a little bit, I ordered one of them for our household.

I decided on fixing some gluten free crepes and I think that they were a really big hit. I also set up a little assembly line of toppings so that everyone could figure out what they wanted on their crepes.
