HOT APPLE CIDER

The holidays are upon us and one of my absolute favorite things in the world during this time of year (other than snickerdoodles), is hot apple cider!  Hot cocoa is cool and everything, but nothing warms my heart more than sitting by the fire, nice and cozy, and drinking some homemade cider.

I may be the only one that does this, but I’m always trying to one up my Thanksgiving game. In my mind, anything that is “fallish” is fair game come Thursday afternoon! I’ve come up with a fun little Thanksgiving-ie appetizer (or eat it as a side) with these Harvest Meatballs with Cranberry Sauce. And you are going to want to DIG.IN.

MEXICAN PERSIMMON AND BROCCOLI SLAW

I’ve been broadening my horizons with persimmons lately, and this Mexican Persimmon and Broccoli slaw is off the chain. (does anyone even say that anymore)  Persimmons are delicious, but also odd. I think it’s safe to say that the majority of people do not know what the heck to do with a persimmon! I was totally that person a couple of years ago and was always intrigued at the store to get one, but just didn’t know what to do with them!

Fear not friends, I got your back and will show you how can incorporate persimmons into your meals! Persimmons add a nice crunch and a bit of sweetness to dishes and are wonderful on there own as well. We like to eat them just like an apple!

WARM BRUSSELS AND PERSIMMON SALAD

This warm brussels and persimmon salad is about to blow yo’ mind!!  I have a confession, I never had a persimmon before last year.  I don’t know why, because they are sooo great! Slightly crunchy like an apple, a little sweet, perfect for snacking or putting into recipes.
