This recipe has to be one of the only family recipes that I haven’t tinkered with. The recipe is simple and perfectly balanced as is. This is a rare family recipe that actually comes with precise measurements. So many of my family’s legendary old recipes seem to be just a list of ingredients without measurements or directions.

There’s nothing better than a one-pot dinner on a hectic week night. This Honey Mustard Chicken with Apples, Butternut Squash, and Brussels Sprouts can even be prepped ahead. I was feeling like I was in a rut making the same entrees for dinner each week. Adding this dish to our winter dinner lineup has livened up my repertoire. My kids get excited when this dish hits the table.
Dessert should taste delicious. It is what it is– a treat. I don’t like desserts that you have to qualify: “Well, it’s, uh, pretty good for a healthy dessert.” That just won’t do for me.

Kris did a juicing demonstration and explained her wellness philosophy. Julie and Eric made juicing look so easy in their kitchen. Now I’m hooked on juicing. Ya see, the company you keep really does rub off on you. That’s what my parents tried to tell me when I was a teenager. I guess they were ri…ri..right. There, I said it.
This apple sauce is the perfect accompaniment to potato latkes for Hanukah. Homemade apple sauce is simple to make and so tasty. Every year when I make it for Hanukah, I wonder why I don’t make apple sauce more often. This recipe is an old family favorite from my Aunt Rose.
I have always wanted to have a great apple cake recipe to make for the Rosh Hashanah holiday and to bake during the Fall when apples are in peak season. For years I’ve tried different recipes, and they’re all pretty good, but not really great. Well, this year I finally hit the apple cake jackpot.
