ApplesThanksgiving dinner is a labor of love.

It takes so much time to prepare all the food and set a beautiful table and then, in my experience, it’s over so quickly – especially with kids.

My kids love Thanksgiving because it is a time that we spend with friends and they don’t fully appreciate the savory turkey and stuffing. Neither of my kids is wild about mashed potatoes. They do love cranberry sauce and even brussels sprouts.

 

But, really, they are all about the desserts. They aren’t even traditionalists – anything goes!

When we put out a call to our contributors for desserts, Levi was quick to respond with his favorite apple crisp recipe.

He said,

I know. It says breakfast but you can eat it whenever. All the time. The breakfast bit is just to make you feel better when it’s in the fridge and all you want to eat in the morning. Really. I really like making apple crisp for Thanksgiving. It’s easy, low-stress, and everyone likes it, and did I mention, easy? Plus, breakfast the next day!

Apple crisp on demand. Right here.
