There’s some dreadful news, my friends!

A new treacherous disease has been recorded recently.

It’s called the “Apple Feaver”. But please don’t get this pretty name twisted. It’s insidious and disseminated one. Besides, it’s been spreading on the Internet, and a lot of folks have already caught it. Food bloggers are the particularly vulnerable category.

The symptoms include but not limited to:

  • Anxiety. As soon as you have seen the first apple recipes among the food blogger’s society, you’ve been dramatically affected. You might lose your sleep, keep on thinking about apple recipes you, and so on. If you are lucky to get some sleep, you will still likely dreaming about apples and orchards.
  • Dizziness. The fragrances of fresh and baked apples introduce dizziness.
  • Lost of the appetite. An increase in appetite – you’re ready to gobble up all the apple stuff you see.

As you see, folks, that’s the horrible disease. Personally, I might have caught it from one food blogger whose name I’m not going to disclose. I just don’t want to make David feel embarrassed. So no names.

But I’d love to warn you, friends. Once you’ve got this fever, you’re not going to stop making apple stuff. I’ve heard the only one way to recover from it is a pumpkin fever. Yup, another dangerous illness. There’s no other treatment right now.

I’ve been suffering from this illness for already two weeks. Salads, pork, desserts – I even cannot remember all the things I’ve already made. Perhaps, temporary memory loss is another symptom.

This time I made these delicious Lavender Honey Baked Apples. Did I mention before that apples and lavender are the good friends? In my book, lavender works best with green semi-tart apples, but the other kinds would be fine as well. The recipe is simple, but the result is great! Juicy and tender, with the creamy stuffing, and the delightful honey and lavender flavors, these apples are quite a healthy option too.

But sorry, my friends, I’ve got to wrap it up. Because I feel fatigued. And hungry.

And I hope you won’t be affected by this apple fever. But if this should happen, you should make these Lavender Honey Baked Apples.

  2. I have a very very small case of apple fever. It hasn’t gone full blown yet, but I have the nasty weather to thank for that. Down pouring rain and high speed winds don’t really make me want to go out and pick apples. BUT, when the weather calms down and I make it out to the orchard, you can bet I will be making these delicious lavender honey baked apples with my supply! These look and sound fantastic, Ben! LOVE that you added your staple lavender to the honey baked party! Simply DELICIOUS! Cheers, buddy! <3

  3. Apple season hasn’t quite hit the Chicago grocery stores. Last year produced such an amazing crop of apples, that I’m afraid that this year won’t be able to compare. Last year, I caught the fever, and I caught it bad. I can’t even tell you how many apple crisps I baked. But that turned out to be a gateway drug that led to apple cakem, then an apple cake/pie hybrid, and eventually to an apple and cheese breakfast strata. Currently, I’m avoiding Starbucks so that I don’t catch pumpkin latte fever, apple fever … I’m totally ready to come down with that again.

  4. Of course lavender works with apple…and it’s just so stinkin’ pretty. So…I too am about to embark on some fun apple treats…just starting to feel the fever… :)
