This week I’ve added this absolutely delicious fall harvest chicken salad to our weekly family dinner night menu. This salad has all the flavors of fall in one bowl and added extra protein with organic quinoa from truRoots.
Happy first day of fall! Unfortunately, the closest we are to feeling like fall in Florida is fall flavors. So to celebrate I'm sharing all of my fall recipes in one spot!
If you didn't get a chance to make some for Thanksgiving don't worry. It is never too late to make some to go with your left over turkey. This cranberry sauce is perfect to go on a turkey sandwich or even on a sausage biscuit. I think today I am going to have a spinach salad with some left over fried turkey, feta cheese and a dollop of this cranberry sauce. No dressing needed!
Last year was my first time making homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. I used to love the canned cranberry sauce but now after making this and discovering how EASY it is I will never go back to canned cranberry sauce.
I am being serious when I say this is super easy and quick to make. Go get some fresh cranberries right now from the store before they are all gone for the season. Enjoy!
In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cinnamon and cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools. Store in a tight sealed container in the refrigerator.
The other day I made some homemade apple cider. It is very delicious! Unfortunately, it is too hot in Florida during the fall to have hot apple cider so I decided to use it for a yummy Apple Cider Sangria. I found a recipe from another blog that I follow and adapted it to my liking. You can find that recipe here. I know that a lot of recipes call for club soda but I love sparkling apple cider and decided to try that instead. It was quite tasty! This Apple Sangria has the flavors of fall and is perfect for the holidays! Enjoy!
