Autumn is here…

Keep warm as the weather turns cooler with these easy fall recipes!

Chiles en Nogada

Chiles en Nogada is a classic Mexican dish originating from Puebla. Stuffed poblano peppers with meat mixed with fruits and spices and topped with walnut sauce, pomegranate seeds and cilantro or parsley. The colors of the dish reflect the Mexican flag: green -fresh poblano peppers, white-creamy walnut sauce and red-pomegranate seeds.

Slow cooker (crock pot)

Slow cooking allows flavors to steep and blend together. It circulates heat and liquid so food stays moist.

What’s in season

It is apple season. Apples are often eaten raw, baked, or stewed, but also they can be dried, or you can make them into apple juice, cider, sauce, pies, cider vinegar, jelly, butter, caramel, candy, chips, crisp and much more!

Kartofdzhyn

Kartofdzhyn- the pie stuffed with potato and cheese. These popular Ossetian pies are baked with different fillings and often prepared on holidays. In Ossetia they traditionally serve three pies on a plate and only on days of mourning – an even number. These pies are a cult food in Ossetia and have ritual significance.

Love my garden

I love gardening so much, it makes my world beautiful. I have a vegetable/herb garden, flower gardens, fruit trees and berries. When I am outside I feel happy, too bad we don’t have nice weather all year but when we do, we are gardening! 😉
