For this trusty recipe, pick tart, firm apples that will hold up to the baking. Slice them thinly and add flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of salt. Pile the apples into a prepared crust, dot with butter, and top with another round of pastry. Bake until the apples are tender and the crust is golden.
A refreshing, light salad for any hot, humid summer day! A great main dish for vegetarians, as well. The basil may be substituted with fresh parsley or mint. Be sure to make this salad just before serving.
Don't underestimate the impact of a gorgeous, golden-brown roasted chicken as a festive main dish, especially when the skin has been rubbed with a buttery mixture of garlic, lemon zest, orange zest, and flavorful seasonings.
This is a home-style South Indian shrimp curry recipe from my husband's family. It is simple and quick to make. It contains no coconut so is not sweet, just mostly juicy and as hot as you like it. Serve with basmati rice or an Indian flatbread.
I love these mini pies because I can serve several different types together and everyone can select their favorite. This mini apple pie uses Granny Smith apples. I bought the mini pie dishes online, and they are really fun!
This is a dish my brother prepared for me in Seattle. Salmon is smoked by cooking it on a cedar plank. It is by far the best salmon I've ever eaten. I like to serve with an Asian inspired rice and roasted asparagus.
