As colder weather sets in you are probably looking for something warm and filling to satisfy your cravings.  It is apple season (so move over pumpkin spice) and I think apple is one of the best flavors of the season because it pairs well with many dishes.  There are so many varieties of apples you are sure to find one that is your favorite and tastes great on a salad, or in a sandwich, or perhaps baked into a dessert. I like to create new recipes each fall that are themed around apples and have a few to share with you today: Slow Cooker Apple Cider Chicken & Apple Melts with Honey Mustard Gouda, Apple & Bacon Naan Flatbread Caramel Apple Cupcakes   Slow Cooker Apple Cider is completely homemade.  The base is water, you add chopped fruit and some mulling spices, turn on the slow cooker, and forget it overnight.  Your house will … Continue reading

Something I love to do from time to time is making homemade bread.  I don’t do it often because it can be time consuming, but nothing beats the taste of a hot, fresh loaf of bread right out of the oven.  I recently purchased the KitchenAid Bread Bowl with Baking Lid which makes creating artisan bread at home quite simple!  It’s essentially one bowl that goes from mixing to rising to baking.  First, I’ll walk through hot to make the homemade bread then I’ll walk you through my favorite recipe to use with the bread.

Start by adding hot water to the KitchenAid Bread Bowl.  Swirl it around then dump it out and dry the bowl.  Secure the bowl on your stand mixer.  Attach the dough hook.

Rosemary, Garlic & Bacon Chicken Burgers are packed with flavor yet light and almost more satisfying than a beef burger.  You use this lovely rosemary and garlic mayo as a spread on the bun and inside the burger making it extra moist and juicy.  I like to top the burgers with arugula, but you could substitute lettuce.  I like the peppery, crunchy texture of arugula and this it pairs well with the flavors of the chicken burger. The recipe can be found here. Start by cooking the bacon according to package instructions.  Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess grease and set aside.  The recipe calls for 1 slice of bacon per burger, but you can make more and add as much as you like. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, rosemary, and garlic.  Set aside.  If you are looking for a lighter option, use … Continue reading

A Pimento BLT Sandwich is not your ordinary, run of the mill sandwich.  It’s an elevated BLT because of the Pimento Cheese spread.  If you aren’t familiar with Pimento Cheese, it’s a creamy, cheese, and tangy spread that is often referred to as the pâté of the South.  It’s made with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, pimento peppers (which are sweet and mild), and mayonnaise.  You can adjust the spicy by adding cayenne pepper and other seasonings.  It’s best when homemade but you can usually find a jarred variety at your local grocery store.  It goes well with crackers, vegetables, or spread on a sandwich, which is what we are doing today. BLTs are crisp, fresh, flavorful, and can be a delicious sandwich on their own but I like to add a little something extra to mine.  I always think something is missing so I like to add avocado, egg, or in this case, Pimento Cheese.  It’s a BLTP … Continue reading
