what? I've been busy...

Here's two recipes that are awesome:

I call this one Apple Coffee Cake, even though the original recipe calls it Apple Brownies.  It's a coffee cake, people.
Got extra apples?  Some are getting a little old?  Bake this.

1/2 cup butter

1 cup white sugar
1 egg
3 medium apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced and chopped
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cream butter, sugar and egg.  Fold in chopped apples.
In a seperate bowl mix dry ingredients.  Mix into apple mixture.
Spread into a greased 9x9" pan.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
