I’ve invited my good friend, Lee Jackson, to share one of her favorite apple recipes with you. Lots of apples are now available at orchards and stores, so this recipe will help you know what to do with all those apples.

The recipe is from her newly revised apple cookbook, From the Apple Orchard – Recipes for Apple Lovers, which just won a first place cookbook award from Midwest Independent Publishers Association. Bookmark this recipe and serve it for Thanksgiving or any special time. You can see this recipe and many, many more at

How about baking some of these tasty savory cookies for a birthday party or just for a fun snack? They’re light and crunchy and you can use cookie cutters to make them any shape you want. The only thing is that they’re so good that you’ll have to make enough for the grown-ups too or they’ll be eating your share!

These turn out light and airy like cheese straws. This recipe isn’t at all spicy, but you can add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper if you like hot flavors.

What is your favorite spread for sandwiches or toast? Have you ever tried lemon curd slathered on fresh white bread?

Lemon curd is a wonderfully satisfying spread with its slightly tart lemony flavor (like real old style lemonade), offset by the smooth velvety texture of the butter and eggs from which it is made. In Britain and South Africa it is mostly eaten as a spread, while in the U.S it is more often found filling cakes and tarts. This recipe makes lemon curd of the perfect texture and thickness for spreading.
