Stove Top Cinnamon Apples

Fruit Stove Top ApplesSimple old fashioned goodness here! The fresh fall apples are abundant and we need a little fruit with our turkey, right?! This recipe is ages old, but some things are just worth passing down. I added fresh Beelicious honey, nod to Judy and Matt, and loved the difference it made. Top it with vanilla bean ice cream and call it dessert. Gobble Gobble good people of the world wide web!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar

Lemon Dressed Melon

Zing into summer with this must eat! Simple, and rewarding. Just sharing the love of dressing up a simple melon lunch or supper “side”. Using my Beelicious honey from Judy and Matt again. Yum to the tum. Be on the lookout later this week for a savory mahi dish to pair with this melon salad…and the perfect refreshing Limoncello cocktail for pairing.Fruit Salad MelonZest of 1 lemon

In medium bowl whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, sherry, honey, salt, and pepper.

Using a mandolin cut melons into ribbons.
Add melon ribbons to dressing and toss to coat.

Of course, if you don’t have a mandolin, you can cube the melon or use a melon baller to shape into balls.Fruit Melon Salad III
