Crispy Chicken and Apple Salad

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, [...]

Apple Mosaic Tart with Salted Caramel

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I love finding good apple recipes in the fall. We take the boys apple picking once a year and end up with many more apples than we can eat. I always make several batches of this apple sauce, but we still have extra apples. If you’re in the same boat, and you don’t want to [...]

Apple Chips

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This is a great recipe to try if you’re looking for a healthy snack, and if you have some apples and time on your hands. These chips take 3 – 4 hours to bake at a really low temperature. They’re incredibly tasty when they’re done, and if you can slice them very thinly on a [...]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they [...]

Chipotle Turkey Chili with Apples and Cheddar

A couple of friends came over for dinner last night and I was looking for something quick and easy to make. I’ve had some great luck with Rachael Ray’s 30-minute meals and I happened to bring the latest issue of her magazine with me when I went to pick up the boys from school. [...]

Apple Cake

I’m going to let my husband say a few words because he LOVED this apple cake.    I thought it tasted like something that came from a bakery, not from my own oven.   I can see why he liked it, but it definitely wasn’t my favorite.  I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t LOVE it.  Here’s [...]

I was responsible for snack at the boys’ soccer game today, so I brought up a bunch of sliced-up oranges and a batch of these muffins. The team made short work of both. I was very impressed with the muffins. They were quite moist and very tasty. They’re [...]

Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

We went to Shelter Island last weekend. It was a long weekend; Monday was Columbus Day. On the way out, we stopped at an apple orchard to pick apples. We arrived late in the afternoon, and unfortunately except for some very small apples, the trees had been picked bare. [...]

Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I made these last night to serve for breakfast this morning. The boys really liked them. The original recipe uses allspice and calls for nuts. I didn’t have any allspice, so I replaced it with cinnamon, and the boys don’t like nuts in their muffins, so I left them out. [...]

Curried Rice and Quinoa Salad

In my quest to put healthy food on the table, I decided to make this healthy entree salad for dinner tonight. It was published in the NY Times earlier this week. I succeeded in getting some healthy food to the table, but I didn’t succeed in getting the boys to try it. [...]
