• Homemade Apple Sauce

    Homemade Apple Sauce

    We go through an obscene amount of applesauce in my house – between my toddler and my husband, I feel like I’m buying mini cups of applesauce at least once a week. This homemade version is about a million times […]

  • Perfect Apple Crisp

    Perfect Apple Crisp

    Apple crisp is one of those classic Fall dishes that I look forward to making each year. The combination of apples and spices seems to always be my first indication that the holiday season is fast approaching. I recently stumbled […]

  • Bacon Wrapped Apple Stuffed Pork

    Bacon Wrapped Apple Stuffed Pork

    It’s peak apple season here in the Pennsylvania and I happen to live with a 2 ½ year old overzealous apple picker. Recently I found myself to be the proud owner of a 20 lb box of freshly picked apples […]

  • Apple Crostata

    Apple Crostata

    What I love most about this variation of apple pie is how easy it is to pull off, especially if you opt to use a store bought pie crust. I like to serve this during the fall and winter months […]

  • Walnut Cranberry Blue Cheese Salad

    Walnut Cranberry Blue Cheese Salad

    This is my go-to salad for entertaining. It’s incredibly easy to assemble but seems really special and more delicious than a plain garden salad. Add thinly sliced red onions for an extra kick. The dressing is my basic vinaigrette recipe […]

  • Salmon in Foil Pouch

    Salmon in Foil Pouch

    I love making this meal as a quick lunch for myself. I usually have the ingredients on-hand and once the prep is done (5-10 minutes tops), it just cooks in the oven while I’m free to do other things (laundry, […]

  • Homemade Tomato Sauce

    Homemade Tomato Sauce

    This is another one of those crazy simple recipes that is completely worth the time and tastes nothing at all like jarred tomato sauce. The key here is finding the best tomatoes you can, and using fresh basil leaves instead […]

  • Arugula, Mushroom & Parmesan Salad

    Arugula, Mushroom & Parmesan Salad

    Oftentimes the simplest ingredients make the best dishes. This salad couldn’t be easier to put together, but the combination of the peppery arugula, the earthy mushrooms and the nutty, sharp parmesan really highlight these classic Italian flavors. I like to […]
