Meet Kim Lapacek!
Welcome to my first Quilter interview of the year.
You know the best part of quilting besides playing with color, fabric, needles and thread is getting to meet creative people. Don’t you agree? And while we are all more or less stuck at home. I thought I would introduce you to some friends of mine you may or may have not met but really should get to know.
Technically, Kim Lapacek and I haven’t met in person, but we have talked a lot on line via Facebook mostly, but also through Instagram I think. What I love about Kim’s work is her unbridled passion for color and throwing all sorts of scraps together. My cup of tea you know? She also hosts some amazing quiltalongs and challenges. I do not know how she gets so much done. You can read more about her and her work at her website, but for today I just sent Kim some random questions for a quick little Meet and Greet.
Let the visiting begin:
Apple Crisp Parfait from Apple-tizing Recipes!
by Kim Lapacek (aka ME!)
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
4 T. butter, melted
3 c. apples, sliced and peeled
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 T. Spumante Champagne (or lemon juice, but not as fun because you can drink the rest of the champagne after you open the bottle for this dessert!)
1 qt. Vanilla ice cream
In an 8″ x 8″ x 2″ baking pan, combine oats, brown sugar, and butter. Bake in 350-degree oven for 10 minutes (mixture will be soft). Cool and crumble. Mix apple, second 1/2 cup of brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and champagne. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stirring half-way through. Divide apple mixture among 8 parfait glasses. Top with slightly softened ice cream and crumble oat mixture.
Makes 8 servings
