Glazed Apple Cake

One of the joys of autumn is fresh apples. In groves and farmers’ markets around the country people are celebrating the harvest. Whether served sliced over a salad, baked in pies or eaten right off the tree, this fruit is a delicacy of the season.

Baking this apple cake is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, especially if it is cold and rainy. The cinnamon and apples will warm your home with the aroma of autumn.

Rosemary Cookies

There are certain recipes that have become favorites of mine over the years and they can always lure me back into the kitchen. One of these is for a simple cookie and it includes one of my favorite herbs, rosemary.It all begins with a basic sugar or butter cookie recipe of your choice.

Honey Roasted Pineapple

This roasted pineapple is simple to prepare and will satisfy even the most sophisticated sweet tooth. As an added bonus pineapple is good for you too. It’s load with fiber and Vitamins B1 & C. The enzyme Bromelain found in pineapple is an anti-inflammatory and digestive aid. Serve this with a dollop of creme fraiche or Greek yogurt and a sprig of mint.

Boiled Custard

Boiled custard is a tradition in the South, especially around the holidays. It’s a light, creamy sweet dessert that’s similar to eggnog, but thicker. It can be served with a dusting of nutmeg or a shot of bourbon if you are feeling festive. I also like to spoon the custard over fresh strawberries.
