This is a rare, two-ingredient side, and I can guarantee your family will love it. We eat this almost every Sunday with chicken, peas and salad to reset our system after Saturdays spent eating pizza, brownies and other unwholesome things.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say these apples help save that routine meal. Because, no one is tired of it yet, which is a miracle.
In fact, Keegan and Ellie like to sneak extra apples in the cart just so they can have more of this dish.
It really couldn’t be simpler. Here’s how it works:
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Peel four or five golden delicious apples.
- Cut off each side of the apple, leaving four pieces.
- Then, put them in a glass baking dish. I use an 8×8 most of the time.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss to combine using your hands.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
- Serve immediately.
That’s it. Barbie dress, dirty table and random bowls in the background not required, but likely.
Feminine and very ladylike, these egg salad toasts would be perfect for Mother’s Day or a spring Brunch. We had ours this year at Easter. I had originally made half the amount shown here, but quickly doubled it on the spot, because we ate all of them and everyone (except for Ellie) wanted more. Although…
I have a history with romesco sauce. Smoky and complex, I love the flavor combinations of roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, garlic and vinegar. If you haven’t had it before, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s guaranteed to up your basic, weeknight chicken by a thousand percent. As Ellie would say, “for real life.” So,…
I made this pear, goat cheese and pistachio crostini for Thanksgiving this year, but according to an old friend, I served something like this for a book club many, many years ago. I’m so glad she reminded me about the combination, because it is delicious, and I had completely forgotten about it. (which sadly happens all…
Pork chops are a staple at our house for a lot of reasons. First, and most importantly, we all think they are delicious – especially Ellie. But, they have two other attributes that put them in regular rotation at our house – they are inexpensive and cook quickly. When it comes to making pork chops,…
Part guacamole, part deviled egg, this appetizer is addictive. Make them knowing they will be eaten in minutes. Simple to create, the hardest part is peeling the hard boiled eggs. But, I promise it will be worth the effort. They will be a huge hit at your next tailgate or watch party. Plus, you can…
Hi! I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
