Bushels of Fun with Apples {Call for Recipes}

The beginning of September means one thing for my family: apple picking! It's a family tradition...though we don't always go to the same orchard every year.

Each year I stare at the bounty - juicy delicious orbs in all shades of red and green - and try to decide what to make. Apple Butter is a must. The boys love Apple Hand Pies. I've made an Apple Tart with Plum Glaze, Spiced Apple Chutney, and even stuffed a pork tenderloin with apples when we made Fyldt Svinem Rbrad.

But I've decided to open it up for suggestions, this year, and ask all of my foodie blogger friends for some suggestions.

I'll keep the link open till September 6th and post a round-up that weekend. Feel free to link up to five recipes.


  1. I don't like cooked apples unless they are in applesauce, so apparently I haven't posted any apple recipes on my site! I am linking one guest post I did and a few other recipes I've made (for others) that have been a hit!

  2. I love apples - to eat and to bake and I've linked up a few of my favourite apple recipes. Can't wait to see what everyone else has linked up! Thanks for hosting.

  3. I've entered a few apple recipes but really can't wait to check out the rest of the list. What a timely topic, thank you for hosting.

  4. Thanks so much for the invite, Camilla. Apple season is my favorite...I am so excited for it to come. I linked up my max ;).

  5. thanks for the linky, we just went apple picking this week.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
