One of the best times of the year, in my opinion, is autumn when it’s apple picking time. The abundance of apple flavors, colors, textures, and recipe possibilities (from sweet to savory) is something which excites me and makes me anxious to get in the kitchen with this incredibly versatile fruit, and hopefully, you feel the same way!
Fruits & Berries
I decided I’d like to make this bread a little less sweet than what the local bakery sells in order to really let the flavor of summer cherries shine. The result is this beautiful (and healthier) cherry yeast bread that is perfect on its own or slathered with butter. Is it so wrong? LOL
This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.
Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!
I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Filled Eclairs may look intimidating to make, but trust me, they’re not! As long as you follow a few simple steps, you’ll be noshing on one (may two) of these beauties in no time for #SummerDessertWeek
Red, White and Blue Dessert Nachos are a patriotic sweet treat your family and friends will rave about. Homemade cinnamon sugar tortilla chips are generously topped with red and blue seasonal berries, a white chocolate drizzle, and sweetened coconut.
I’ve talked about it before, but it’s worth talking about again. My family loves a good “breakfast-for-dinner” night. There is just something so warm and comforting to sitting down to a delicious breakfast at the end of a long, hard day.
This gluten-free, sugar-free, and keto Golden Almond Cake with Fresh Blueberry Orange Compote recipe won a full two thumbs up from my husband. He said it tasted like “real cake.” Now there’s a compliment for you! LOL!
This Chicken, Berry & Avocado Salad is my very favorite. While I don’t always add chicken, I do always make my own vinaigrette. Today I’m sharing how I made my strawberry balsamic vinaigrette. It’s a wonderfully fruity compliment to this tasty, healthy and filling salad.
Here at my house, we’re trying hard to lose weight by sticking to our new keto lifestyle eating plan. If you’re unfamiliar with the keto diet plan, it’s basically avoiding unhealthy carbohydrates and incorporating healthy fats into your daily eating, which is why I developed this recipe for Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops.
