Fall weather brings to mind the sharp sweetness of apples. The fruit is perfect for eating out of hand, but the cool weather calls for baked goods. Apples are wonderfully versatile, and it just wouldn't be the holiday season without an apple pie.
The flavors of the season make a refreshing splash in this festive, quick-to-mix sangria: It's infused with apples, pomegranates, and honey -- foods that happen to have special meaning for Rosh Hashanah, too.
A simple swap is all it takes to reimagine panzanella. This Italian summer salad usually features cubes of day-old rustic bread and tomatoes, tossed with basil leaves and a simple vinaigrette. But slices of ripe, juicy peaches in place of, or in addition to, the tomatoes bring a different (but entirely welcome) sweetness to the mix.
