Please Welcome Ruffled Apron

Just in Time for Thanksgiving!

RSFFM Ruffled Apron LockeA Message From The Owner: “Hi! This is Locke, founder of Ruffled Apron Foods.  People sometimes describe me as “a nut” and I must admit, that describes my personality and business pretty darn well!  I love making people laugh and I love seeing people smile.

Love = Baking! The seed was planted when my brother requested a chocolate pie for his birthday. I love chocolate and I love pie, but the thought of using another, boring, graham cracker crust was discouraging me from making this pie. I thought, there has to be an alternative! After many test recipes with many types of nuts, an Almond Nut Crust was prepared and it was a huge success. The chocolate pie went from good to great with the help of my nutty crust. Over the last 5 years, this almond nut crust was a staple pie crust in my freezer. I would use it for any occasion and any type of pie. My friends and family gave many “oohh’s and ahhh’s”, and started requesting almond pie crusts to bake with their own filling. There are very few options of pre-made pie crusts at the store, so the idea to make them available to buy was a no-brainer!”

RSFFM Fall fruit


The RSF Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…
Raw Almond and Pistachio Apple Pie

RSFFM Raw almond pistachio apple pieThis Thanksgiving let’s try a healthy take on an old favorite … by making a “raw” apple pie, you are not only bringing out the amazing flavors of the fresh from the orchard apples, but you are maintaining the nutritional integrity of the whole foods by preserving the vital living enzymes!  Try something simple and different for a healthy twist on an American Staple!

For the Crust:
  • 1 Ruffled Apron Almond Nut Pie Crust (Ruffled Apron Foods)
Lemon Cinnamon Syrup:
  • 1 1/2 cups raw agave (Thyme of Essence)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (Atkins Farms)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
For the Filling:
  • 4 apples, thinly sliced (Smit Farms)
  • 2 cups soaked pistachios, minced (Hopkins)
  • 1 cup raisins (or similar dried sweet fruit for variety (Smit Farms)

To Prepare:

Whisk together agave, lemon juice and cinnamon in a bowl to create the syrup.  Evenly place one quarter of the apples on the pie crust and gently press down.  Brush one quarter of the syrup over the first layer of apples and sprinkle a third of the minced pistachios and one third of the raisins.  Repeat for the next three layers until all of the ingredients have been utilized and press the final layer down, then cover with a final thin glaze of the cinnamon syrup.  Refrigerate for at least two hours prior to serving … Happy Holidays!



“Aria’s” Love a Timeless Melody

Helen Woodward Animal Center introduces Aria looking for a forever home

Aria_05_smMeet Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 7-year old, 7lb Pet-of-the-Week, Aria! Like the music she is named for, Aria finds as much beauty in “solo” naps in the sun as in a quiet afternoon spent “accompanied” by a friend. She’s one of those rare creatures whose love is truly boundless, and has purred her way into the heart every staff member and volunteer she’s nuzzled. Whether she was born with the gift or it came with the wisdom of age, Aria doesn’t greet a visitor without making a friend.

Aria is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been altered and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $96, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, she is micro chipped for identification. As an added bonus, she also comes with two free passes to Sea World!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).”
