Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples

With Maple Syrup & Cider

Posted on November 03, 2015
I made these Sausage Stuffed Baked Apples after seeing a photo online. That's how it happens sometimes. I just had this image in my head and was all about making these! I started with the most gigantic apples I have ever seen. These Honey Crisp Apples - yes the ones from the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp recipe - were perfect for this. They were ginormous! Massive. Did I mention they were big?  Then I grabbed some sausage. It couldn't be just any sausage though, it had to be the right amounts of sweet and savory, something that would pair prettily with the apple and other sweet flavors. In the end I had these gigantic apple bombs that were aromatic and delectable. A perfect balance. Oh and they're gluten free too.

Crispy Heirloom Potatoes

Crispy Heirloom Potatoes

With Thyme & Chives

Posted on October 27, 2015
Crispy Heirloom Potatoes are crunchy on the outside and almost creamy, and definitely fluffy on the inside. If you're a lover of all things potato, then these are definitely worth a try. They went perfectly with my Rustic Slow Roast Beef, but will make an awesome side dish to just about any meal you make.

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Sweet Autumn Dessert

Posted on October 27, 2015
I found honey crisp apples in the grocery, they were beyond gigantic. I mean I have a teacup that holds 2 cups and they were bigger than that. I bought these apples for a different recipe, but wound up with more apple innards then I knew what to do with. So I made Maple Walnut Apple Crisp. Sweet, overloaded with syrup and cinnamon, crunchy walnut bits everywhere. Top that with cream cheese icing, yogurt, or whipped cream and you have a dessert made in Autumn Heaven.

Autumn Baked Brie

Autumn Baked Brie

With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries

Posted on October 15, 2015
Autumn Baked Brie With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries is a cheesy, gooey, delight. Feel's kind of high brow, and can be served as an appetizer with wine, or as a dessert, with wine. I guess you don't have to serve it with wine, but yeah. The wheel was a buffalo brie from Prince Edward County. It wasn't strong like brie cheese tends to be, but mild and salty, pairing beautifully with the sweetness of the apples and brown sugar, and the tartness of the cranberries.

Easy Apple Blooms

Easy Apple Blooms

Fresh apple pastries off the grill

Posted on October 15, 2015
This recipe started with me seeing some crazy 30 second video on Facebook. Easy Apple Blooms looked - just that - easy! But I couldn't just do what I saw online. No! I needed to take it up a notch. Make these things the most amazing pastry thingadooeys that you have ever put in your pie-hole! And I did. Cinnamon, lemon juice, and cream cheese icing take these from pretty apple pies to some sort of danish delight. Try these with your leftover pastry next time you bake.

Roasted Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Mashed Potatoes

With Paprika & Aged Cheddar

Posted on October 07, 2015
Roasted Mashed Potatoes With Paprika & Aged Cheddar are super simple but pack a huge punch. I know that my Irish Grandfather is weeping as he reads this because "potatoes are good on their own and don't need any help!" but let me tell you. Paprika, smoke, aged cheddar = help! You can make these ahead, which is what I did, and then finish them off on the grill while everything else is keeping warm. Also, having extras to share, reheat, and re-eat is so awesome.

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash

Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash

Posted on October 06, 2015
Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash is a fun and easy way to get your veggies in. The perfect autumn side dish that goes great with turkey or beef, or... well it goes with everything. This is my first time eating the Kabocha or Sweet Mama Squash. It's texture is like a potato slightly waxy, soft, and after getting kissed by smoke and roasting on the barbecue, it's sooooo sweet. Not like sugar sweet, but a lightly flavored sweet. 

 

If you're inexperienced with hard veggies, this one is HARD. Physically. You will need a good meat cleaver kind of knife, something that will get through a turnip or pumpkin. Thank goodness my husband was helping. He actually had a blast breaking through the gourd. And he used my avocado tool to scoop out the innards in a single swipe! Once sliced it's an easy season, and bake.

Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots

Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots

Bright, easy, and delicious

Posted on October 06, 2015
Simple Roasted Heirloom Carrots are just that. Super simple. I needed a side dish to go with our Thanksgiving meal, something fast, simple, set and forget while I worked on the important main course. These carrots look like a showstopper, but you don't have to tell them how easy it was to make. They're buttery, and flavorful, and the bright colors of the purple and yellow carrots stand out in the field of regular orange ones so that people take note of the dish. You will run out. They're that good.

Spiced Carrot Cake

Spiced Carrot Cake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on October 06, 2015
You can't finish your perfect Thanksgiving meal without dessert, and what better way to usher in autumn than with Spiced Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing! Imagine a dense cake, scenting the air with the fragrance of fall, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. It's moist but not crumbly. It's perfectly topped with thick layers of sweet cream cheese icing. This is a cake to remember and could you believe that I made it on the grill?

 

Baking time varies widely from cake pan to cake pan, so I recommend checking at the 20 to 25 minute mark, and every 5 to 7 minutes afterwards. My cake pan was 6x6x3-inches and it took nearly 45 minutes for the cake to be completely done.
