Author Notes

While making dinner one evening, cold beverage in hand, I started to think about how nice a dessert would be. "I've got apples, brown sugar, oatmeal...but I don't want to use the oven. Hmmm...what to do..." Suddenly the plan burst forth like Athena from Zeus' forehead. The results were judged to be among the top 1 percent of things I had ever made. —poorlocavore
