Savory Apple Side Dish Recipe (Baked Stuffed Apples)  Recipe

Apples are the quintessential fall fruit. They're a great substitute for boring vegetable side dishes or potatoes. Granny Smith apples work wonders in savory dishes because they have a crunchy, crip texture with a hint of acidity.

This particular side dish is ultra-easy to prepare. I stuffed the apples with a combination of freshly cracked walnuts and hazelnuts, red onions, pure cane sorghum (you could also use maple syrup) and a few spices. To add a little tenderness and sweetness to the dish without overwhelming it, I alternated a few slices of McIntosh red apples and stuffed the apples with Kentucky pure cane sorghum from Bourbon Barrel (check out the tip section), which has a texture similar to corn syrup but is so much more flavorful. I placed a little apple cider at the bottom of  an oven-safe baking dish, added the savory stuffed apples and baked them for about 30 minutes. Et voilà!

Rocket Salad with Granny Smith Apples (Mixed Green Salad Recipe) Recipe

My husband Lulu and I are finally back home from a long month in Paris. It's good to be home and see the girls again, whom we missed a lot. Lulu got the camera out and showed the family pictures of the wonderful Parisian monuments and delicious food we had.

Over the next few days, I'll be sharing with you the dishes I made on our trip. This particular one is a very simple roquette (also known as rocket or arugula) and apple salad. I paired it with freshly cracked walnuts and pecorino pepper vinaigrette. The crunch and the hint of tart and slight acidity from Granny Smith apples works wonders on this salad. Bon appétit!
