Upside Down Apple Pie from Scratch

To help my friend’s mother celebrate her 90th birthday tomorrow, my little Brooke and I threw together a homemade Upside Down Apple Pie from scratch…  Darned if it doesn’t smell GOOOOD…  Not bad for an old mechanic and a young lady, eh?  Recipe courtesy of my good bud, Cathy Thomas (

Now who knows how to keep little hands off the darn thing until tomorrow?

  1. That just looks very tasty! An old mechanic, eh? Did not know! I was a diesel/gas 4-stroke/2-stroke mech, H.E. & lite for a number of years – until I got tired of cussing the engineers and joined them to try to interject a little common sense into their designs.

    Tell your daughter “Job well done!” – and if it tastes half as good as it looks, it must’ve been heaven!

      1. Aye – first try – try again. It takes time to learn to cook well. But a good cook always eats their mistakes, LOL! One of the benefits of learning. Better luck next time – and here’s an old hint from a cooking school: add more sugar and a pinch of salt – to everything! LOL! Bad for you – but makes everything taste better.

        Good luck on your next try on Apple Pie – it still looks delicious!

  2. Tell Brooke it looks absolutely delicious which I’m sure it was! Love the pictures of the pie progression. Big brother looks pretty proud of his sister! 🙂

  3. Koji, I LOVE this post! And I love your “photo essay”–terrific series of shots. The pie looks absolutely delish. Your children are so beautiful–you got some fabulous shots–it’s pure delight to see their joy. I really admire your multi-faceted interests, your playful spirit and great sense of humour. Your food posts are always so yummy looking. :))
