A Guide to Apple Baking, Saucing and Munching

A Guide to Apple Baking, Saucing and Munching

Molly Siegler

Apples are the quintessential fall fruit. Perfectly perched on top of teachers’ desks and tucked into lunchboxes, apples are in their prime right now. Fall also brings with it a resurgent interest in baking. I’m finally feeling ready to return to the kitchen for a few cooking projects – whole baked apples, applesauce and even apple chips are on the list.

The inspiration for this particular cocktail comes from the margarita, the most famous tequila-based drink in the world and one of my favorites to drink during football season. Preparing a margarita with beer adds desirable effervescence and imparts its own unique flavor.

Since the traditional margarita calls for orange liqueur, in this innovative twist I chose to use Belgian Witbier: a light, fruity and slightly spicy style of beer brewed with wheat and flavored with coriander and orange peel.

Ch-ch-ch-chia! Remember those chia head commercials? Where you put chia seeds in a terra cotta pot shaped like an animal or cartoon character head and they grew into grass “hair” like magic? Who knew we were wasting all those chia seeds on novelty items when we could be eating them!

My favorite hostess gift lately is a bowl full of heirloom tomatoes. They are the epitome of late summer and just beg for a simple, no-cook preparation – just what a busy hostess looks forward to the day after entertaining.

Are you entertaining soon? Since summer isn’t the time for stuffy sit-down dinner parties, a potluck can be the perfect solution. I challenged some of my favorite bloggers from across the country to share what dish they would bring to an heirloom tomato potluck, and the results are delicious.     ... Read More
