Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Caramel Apple Pie



For 4 people


  • Pastry for single-crust pie
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 3 tablespoon(s) flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 6 cup(s) thinly sliced peeled apples
  • 1 cup(s) packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup(s) caramel ice cream topping

Caramel Apple Pie Directions

  1. Prepare pastry for single-crust pie, being careful not to stretch dough too much. Place in pie plate, trim, and crimp the edge. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and gently toss until they are coated well. Transfer mixture to pie.
  2. Crumb Topping: Stir together brown sugar, flour, and oats. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until topping resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over apple mixture in pie. To prevent over-browning while baking, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake at 375 ° F for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 25 to 30 minutes more, or until top is golden. Remove from oven. Drizzle top with caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Cool on wire rack and serve!
