Caramel Apple Crisp

Caramel apples and fall just go together, don't they?   Warm fruit crisps are the equivalent of dessert comfort food for me.  There's something magical about the combination of apples, oats and cinnamon.  Apple crisp just begs to be served while warm and fresh from the oven adorned with a luscious scoop of vanilla ice cream.


When it comes to crisps, I have a confession.  The crispy buttery crumb topping takes it over-the-top for me.  In this case, I added sliced almonds but nuts of any kind would work depending on your personal preference.  This crisp is a regular rotation in my kitchen year-round and not only during apple harvest time.  It is however, a terrific way to celebrate, don't you think?

Mexican Peppered Sliders and Tomatillo Sauce

My friends at Rhodes Bread Company sent this slider recipe for me to try.  I thought it was a fun twist on sliders using Rhodes White Dinner Rolls in place of buns.   The fresh tomatillo sauce adds such a nice twist to the normal garnishes with an unexpected sweet and spicy twist.



I prepared these with ground beef, but ground turkey or chicken would work well, too.  These tasty
Mexican peppered sliders are perfect for game day or any day when small bites are on the menu.

Beef Pot Pie with Cheddar-Onion Biscuits

September has been declared National Biscuit month.   I think that's a mighty good thing to celebrate, too.  Buttermilk biscuits are also known as our beloved house bread of the South. I can't remember a single time when my Mom and Gramma's didn't have biscuits on the table to go with our meals. In particular at breakfast, however, they were also served as bread at other meals and make a tasty biscuit sandwich, if you are so inclined.


I have fond memories of seeing the kitchen counter covered in flour and my Mom rolling and cutting biscuits for our meal.  There was always butter and a variety of jellies and jams, and in the Summer fresh from the garden sliced tomatoes to dress our biscuits.  Biscuits here in the South tend to be more savory but, sweet biscuits or scones, are popular too. They're delectable. Homemade cheddar-onion drop biscuits make the perfect topping for this hearty beef pot pie.  It's a one dish meal packed with the kind of comfort that's sure to please your hungry eaters.
