Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall

This blogging lapse was truly a cooking lapse.  I am lucky to have a family that kept giving me food like homemade tomato sauce and green beans from the garden.  When that ran out, I cobbled together meals with scrambled eggs, frozen veggie burgers, baked potatoes, and Greek yogurt.

So while I don’t have any new recipes to share with you today, I can share some old classic recipes.  First, in what I am calling a “goodbye to summer” my Mom roasted red and yellow peppers and used them to wrap fresh mozzarella.  I’ve documented the best method for roasting peppers already, so fire up the grill and get going.

Once the peppers are roasted and sliced, season them with a bit of salt and pepper, then wrap the balls of mozzarella and secure with a toothpick.  Drizzle them with balsamic vinegar and fresh basil, and you’ve got yourself a delicious appetizer.

But we can’t deny that fall is in the air, and apple season has arrived.  I’ve shared this Apple Cake recipe with countless friends, and just about everyone loves it.  A friend of mine took the recipe and made cupcakes, and even added some buttercream frosting to take things up a notch.

Most of the ingredients in the recipe are pantry staples, so you can go apple picking all day and enjoy this cake (or cupcakes!) by the evening.

Enjoy!  I’ll be back with new recipes soon, promise!
