Apple Butter Chicken #WeekdaySupper

Apple Butter Chicken
Fresh Apple Butter is one of my favorite fall treats. If you are not familiar with it, apple butter has no dairy components. It gets the name from the smooth, creamy texture. I love it spread on bread. Here in my neck of the woods, we usually eat it on cottage cheese as a side dish.
You can buy it commercially made. I sometimes do. It is usually located in the jelly aisle.
Apple Butter Chicken takes the sweet taste of apple butter tamed with a bit of cinnamon then slathered over tender chicken thighs. The best of fall ready in fewer than 30 minutes!

Prune and Apple Yogurt Parfaits #RecipeReDux

Prune and Apple Yogurt Parfaits
It’s time for another Recipe ReDux challenge! Prune and Apple Yogurt Parfaits!
What is Recipe ReDux?

recipe redux

As the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians,The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. Dietitians Regan Jones (of ReganMillerJones, Inc.), Serena Ball and Deanna Segrave-Daly (both of Teaspoon Communications) founded the group on the belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious. As the Latin term “redux” means to revisit or reinvent, we are reinventing the idea of healthy eating with a taste-first approach. We aim to inspire the food lover in every healthy eater and inspire the healthy eater in every food lover.

September Challenge:

Get Your Dehydrator On
Whether it’s extra garden bounty or a sale at the supermarket – dehydrating food is a budget-friendly way to stock up for later. You can use a food dehydrator, a low slow oven, or natural sunshine to preserve natural healthfulness. Show us how you like to dehydrate, or a healthy recipe for how you enjoy using dehydrated fruits, veggies or other bounty.

Prune and Apple Yogurt Parfaits

For this challenge I chose two of my favorite dried fruits: prunes and apples!
I love prunes as is and also reconstituted as cooked stewed prunes and soaked in juice or wine. For this recipe I chose to rehydrate these dried plums in grape juice. I kept the dried apples as is to retain that crisp crunch.
Add some vanilla Greek yogurt and you have a delicious parfait!

Brie and Pear Salad #SundaySupper

Brie and Pear Salad Plate

Fall is calling. Time to start enjoying autumn harvests of fruit and vegetables. Brie and Pear Salad is a delightful way to welcome fall. Sweet red pears. brie and arugula in a light vinaigrette.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. Pumpkin patches, apple picking and beautiful colors provide by nature. Leaf raking is just around the corner, but for now I want to enjoy the leaves on the trees!

It is a little early for Halloween fun. Local farms are getting ready to sell their harvest. Many set up fun and games to enjoy while shopping for your pumpkins, squash and fall fruit.

We can get lost in corn mazes already! Do you have corn mazes in your part of the country?
