When I visited Seattle, I fell in love with the Experience Music Project Museum. Not only did the museum have some excellent permanent collections featuring Nirvana & Jimi Hendrix, but there was also an impressive horror exhibit: “Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film”. One of the items displayed was Freddy Krueger’s glove from one of my favourite horror films, the classic slasher Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Wes Craven. This movie made a significant impact on the horror genre, and inspired a slew of slashers produced throughout the 80’s. A little over a decade later, Wes Craven’s Scream revitalized horror films, breathing new life into the genre he helped to create. Scream spawned three sequels, the fourth one released many years later in 2011. Despite the forgettable Scream 3, I was actually pretty excited for Scream 4 and my review can be read here.
In honour of the Scream series that was set in California, I’m featuring a recipe that highlights some of California’s most popular food trends: detox, wheat free and sugar free. My spiced apple crisp puts a healthy spin on this classic dessert, making it the perfect dish to snack on during a detox.
