Dark Chocolate Cranberry Coffee Cake. Pork Cornets with Sour-Cherry Sauce recipe. Heirloom Apple Salad Recipe. I'm off to New York this week, and thought I would leave you with this Heirloom Apple Salad recipe from the archives.

Heirloom Apple Salad Recipe

It's the sort of salad that works this time of year, and you likely have the ingredients needed sprinkled about your kitchen - on counter tops, or in the crisper. It's hearty and substantial, colorful and crunchy - made with heirloom apples, shaved celery, and toasted nuts of your choosing. The dressing is crème fraîche spiked with rosemary, garlic and champagne vinegar - you could use sour cream or even yogurt. The original recipe was posted just after our basement flooded a few years back. Come to think of it, that was one of the last times it rained :( !! Think of this more as a sketch than anything else.

My Favorite Fresh-Herb Rolls. Years ago these rolls were the signature bread at a wonderful organic restaurant and farm near our home.

My Favorite Fresh-Herb Rolls

Through the years the restaurant has progressed adding a professional bakery on site, which produces mainly artisan breads. I don't think they offer the herb rolls anymore, but these remain my family's absolute, all-time favorite recipe for dinner rolls. The whole wheat flour and oat bran give them a wonderful depth of flavor, while the white flour keeps them light and tender.

Summer Jo’s Herb RollsAs shared from the kitchen of Once Upon a PlateFriendly warning---This recipe makes a restaurant-size quantity (4 dozen rolls!) I always half the recipe, and there are still plenty to freeze. . * If oat bran is difficult for you to find, you can just whir some old-fashioned rolled oats in a blender or food processor (until slightly chopped, leaving some texture.

I hope you enjoy!

SPARKLING CRANBERRIES. I have a thing for this time of year – starting this week and sweeping all the way through to the end of December.


All of its sparkly, wondrous, glittering, cozy magic. If I had my druthers, I would lay for hours beneath a Christmas tree, inhaling its piney aroma, listening to old Christmas records, and sipping champagne (or tea, or mulled cider.) Having these little moments to myself takes the edge off the craziness of this time of year, and I guard them fiercely. My goal this December, as every year, is to not let the frustrating parts of the month get the better of the best parts of the month. It takes a little dedication to do that. And these sparkling cranberries are everything that is good and wonderful about this time of year. SPARKLING CRANBERRIES adapted from 101 Cookbooks 2 cups cane or granulated sugar, plus more for finishing the cranberries 3 cups cranberries 1 teaspoon cardamom In a saucepan, combine the sugar and cardamom with two cups water.
