Crisp, light layers of phyllo dough and soft melted apples in cinnamon dance a step of inspiration! Make this dish with any fruit you love, top with a candle and flame, sing love for your birthday, blow out the candle, make a wish, and share it!
Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:
Filling: 5 Apples, 1 tsp of Saigon Cinnamon, and a tiny pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt (Sliced, with skins on.)
Dough: Phyllo Dough
Melt some raw organic coconut oil in a small saucepan and get out a pastry brush, natural bristles or silicone. Brush some oil in the bottom of a large glass or metal baking dish or pan. Lay a thawed sheet of phyllo on the bottom, brush oil gently on top, and repeat for 4-5 layers. Gently lay in apple mixture and top with a phyllo sheet. Oil and layer 4-5 more times. Brush oil on the top sheet and bake in a 375 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes until the phyllo is crisp and the apples are soft and tender.
Serve warm and enjoy! Store in an air tight, glass container and eat cold as well. No sugar means this is a great treat for young ones, too. Mind any sharp crisp bits, and hydrate as always.
Designer’s Tips: A Wedding Dress Tailored Just for You
Take a slip, add some fabric to the body for the skirt, (add more to line it or wear another slip underneath), add more for the straps, add any details you like, and there you have a custom wedding dress that fits your beautiful body! Ask a tailor to help you, if you don’t sew yet and need a dress soon, or learn to sew as this kind of sewing is ok for beginners. Add a beaded sash around the waist, homemade or bought, and choose some delicate accessories for hair, jewelry, shoes, and you’re ready for a simply elegant wedding, stress-free, and budget-friendly! Enjoy the moments that the event is all about, LOVE. This dress also makes gorgeous decor, hanging gracefully from a curtain rod, reminding us of our lovely day.
I wear this dress often as a slip and also with another slip as a dress. You can even wear a short sleeve/off the shoulder/long sleeve lace layer on top for a more formal or cold-weather wedding. Design your life to be multi-dimensional. Not only do you save money, time, and energy, but it brings such joy and fulfillment to think carefully about yourself.
Find out which colours suit your complexion, skin tone, undertone, and adorn your body and home in those shades for an uplifting mood, beautiful photograph memory books, and to help you always feel comfortable.
*Why wait for a wedding? I’ve been sewing dream dresses since I was little. Just try it! It’s a good way to learn something new. Create your dream wardrobe now by carefully choosing well fitting designs and sustainable, classic materials.
