Fall brings apples, and apples mean pie

By   /  November 5, 2013  /  Food & Dining  /  No Comments

Dot the top of the filling with bits of unsalted butter before covering it with the top crust.

I make one or two apple pies each fall to herald the arrival of the autumn leaves, nippy temperatures and crisp apples lining the shelves at the grocery store or farmers’ market.

Chicken with Grapes and Olives is perfect for fall

By   /  September 10, 2013  /  Food & Dining  /  No Comments

Chicken with Olives and Grapes can be made in an hour.

This is a favorite chicken recipe of ours with a Mediterranean flair. I found it on the Witty in the City website, but she got it from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. I’m not sure if she changed it, but I use chicken thighs instead of legs and thighs and I doubled the amount of grapes […]
