Applelicious Sandwiches

Apples are an easy (and delicious) way to add extra goodness to simple sandwiches – from smoked turkey and Swiss to grilled Cheddar and bacon. Our latest favorite? Layer crisp sweet Gala apple slices with the peppery bite of arugula and a creamy blue cheese, honey, and walnut spread.

Close-To-Restaurant Sweet Potato Fries

Really good sweet potato fries are a surprisingly difficult thing to achieve. Even in restaurants, they often arrive limp, soggy, and the exact opposite crispy. But these sweet potatoes felt firm and had a nice bite. You can dunk them in the dipping sauce without worrying that they are going to break off or be too limp to scoop anything up. These are really the closest to restaurant fries you will ever get.

Three Cheese Tomato Tart

Here’s a retro tomato pie (with a little makeover).  A frozen puff pastry is just the solution to cut a few minutes from the recipe.

This makes a perfect summer appetizer, but you can enjoy it as a special lunch all on your own. This is one of those recipes that just takes you aback the first time you have a bite. You just won’t believe how delicious (and easy) it is! And then you find yourself standing in the kitchen, shoveling eating slices without even getting a plate. And that’s when you know you’ve had success, right?
