Skillet Moroccan Chicken

Skillet Moroccan Chicken is one of my favorite chicken recipes. It’s easy, quick and flavorful, with a slightly sweet taste that is a bit unusual. I made this for some friends last week and they requested the recipe. So here it is… Continue reading

Tasty Tuesday: New Apple Cake

September is Apple Month around here. Apples become available around the very end of August, and we like to go apple picking at least once a year. Also, apples are part of the symbolism of Rosh HaShana (the Jewish holiday) which is normally in the early part of this month. (Jewish holidays are determined by the Jewish calendar, which is different from the regular calendar.) Anyway, the point is that we tend to use a lot of apples around here in September, and I’ll be sharing several apple recipes over the next few weeks.

I have two recipes for Apple Cake, both of which I love. They are quite different, actually, considering how similar the ingredients are. Next week I’ll share my grandmother’s Apple Cake, which is a slightly more European/Old School recipe. Today’s recipe is a bit sweeter, and the apples are cooked first which gives the cake a whole different type of taste.

Read on for the details of New Apple Cake … Continue reading

Tasty Tuesday: Baked Apricot Chicken

I made the most delicious, and incredibly easy, chicken recipe the other day, and I feel compelled to share it.

One of the best parts of this recipe is that you can prepare it up to 24 hours in advance. So it’s perfect for busy days: just prepare it the night before, and then when the time comes all you have to do is stick it in the oven. Or, in my case, ask another household member to stick it in the oven. 🙂
