Shhhh….. Be vewy vewy quiet! I’m bein’ sneaky. huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Thank you, Elmer. I hereby declare this week Sneaky Weeky at TechyDad.com. I’m going to use this week to celebrate The Sneaky Chef in both book review form and in three segments of Cooking With TechyDad (the first of which starts in a few moments). So please join with me as I slink into the kitchen to cook a few sneaky meals.

As B wrote earlier this week, we went apple picking Sunday morning and picked 35 pounds of apples. I plan on making some into apple sauce using our slow cooker, but that will only use 3 to 6 pounds of apples. Eating apples will use up another few pounds. That still leaves us with many, many, *MANY* pounds of apples left.
Therefore, my Aloha Friday question is: What would you do with that many apples? Do you have any favorite recipes? Feel free to post them (or links to them). If I make and post a "Cooking With TechyDad" using one of the posted recipes, I’ll link to your site.
I’ll start things out with a recipe that I’m planning on using. Every time I make apple sauce, I’m left with a big pile of apple peels. Ideally, I’d compost them, but that’s not a project we’ve felt up to tackling. I hate throwing them out, but I had nothing else to do with them so out they usually went. Instead of tossing them this time, though, I’m going to make crispy apple skins.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the MckLinky there if you are participating.
Today on Cooking With TechyDad, we’re going to make a dessert pizza. First, let’s get our ingredients out.
Next, we place our pizza crust on a baking sheet and spread half a cup of peanut butter on top of it.
Now, pour a tablespoon of honey over it.
Follow that up with a half cup each of chocolate chips and marshmallows. (Yes, I used a bit more than a half of a cup.)
Now, pop it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
After the 20 minutes are up, take the pizza out.
It’s already looking good, isn’t it?
Now, thinly slice a banana and place it over the top of the pizza.
Let the pizza cool for two minutes, then slice and eat.
This soup has become a favorite recipe of ours. Before trying this out, we shied away from dry beans in favor of canned. Now, however, we love buying dried bean packages to cook into our Multi-Bean Soup.

I’m always on the lookout for new recipes or meal ideas. Many times, though, interesting recipe ideas are rendered too difficult due to our kosher restrictions at home. So when Moomettes twittered about posting a mock crab cakes recipe using zucchini, I was intrigued. This might be the perfect chance to make “crab” cakes without the unkosher crab. I couldn’t find Moomettes’ recipe, so I did some Google searching and hit upon this recipe. Now I was determined to serve up some crab cake goodness.
