The minute the leaves start changing, I just have a taste for this delicious Apple Crisp. It's the official announcement of Autumn. I find it interesting to experiment with different varieties of apples. My crisp topping doesn't include butter—it's made with a rich oil such as olive. Some crisp toppings aren't actually crispy, but I've figured out a solution; if you add a little water to the mixture just before cooking, it creates a crunchier texture. Try serving with your favorite non-dairy ice cream and enjoy! –Adrienne Weiss

By Doug Fine
I’m writing these words ten minutes after President Obama has legalized hemp. If you’re not yet among the throngs pausing for collective pinching of self and recitation of, “God Bless America,” you will be, pretty soon. He did this by signing the 2014 Farm Bill, which included a tucked-in, bi-partisan amendment that allows university research of the crop. Read More
