Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce

This is one of those recipes that looks complicated, but nothing could be further from the truth. If you can peel and chop, you are in! These are great with Asian food, served at a party as an appetizer, or if you want a vegetarian lunch. Low-cal but with a satisfying crunch and a sweet and sour taste.

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce Notes:

• To julienne the vegetables simply means to cut them into long thin strips, so they look like a matchstick.

• Rice paper wrappers can be found in the Asian food section of your grocery store, or at Asian food markets.

• When peeling your mango, you may want to do it with a knife instead of pulling the skin off. The knife will be smoother, and the pulling can result in strings of mango. However, if you like springs of mango, go for it!

3. Shred cabbage to make one cup.
4. Julienne ½ of an English cucumber into the same size as the carrots.

6. Cut 10 chives in half, or thirds, depending on size, to maintain similar size to all other cut vegetables.

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe

country-style fried apples in a white bowl on a grey background


My whole house smells like apples, and I love it! These homemade fried apples can be eaten warm or topped with vanilla ice cream, and they taste just like apple pie, minus the crust. Straight out of Grandma’s country kitchen, these delicious, easy to make country-style fried apples will remind you of down-home cooking at its very best.

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe

Mmmm apples! Apples are a delicious source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. Check out the apples from New York website for more apple nutritional information! And, here is a great article with all the benefits apples bestow upon our bodies!

Popular Apple Varieties in the United States:

Most of these apple varieties are available in your local store, farm grove, or at your local farmstand in the north. If you live in New York State, as I do, you know apple picking is a very popular family outing!!

As many of you know, Hubby and I spent a lot of time at Cornell taking Max to the vet hospital the last few years. We were able to see the Cornell Orchards (which are basically across from the vet hospital, with a few roads and parking lot in between), and buy apples at their Orchard Store more than a few times (free parking!). A number of these popular apples on the list below were developed in New York State. And, Cornell continues to work on new apple varieties we can all enjoy!

But what apples are best to cook with? Which ones are sweetest? Which are tart? Well, our friends at the US Apple Association have these great tips and descriptions so you can choose the perfect apple for the “task”:

• Cortland – Founded more than 120 years ago by horticulturalists in New York State, Cortland is a beautiful and tart apple.
Best use: Corland apples browns slower than most when sliced,it is great for serving up as a snack or in a salad.
Available in the fall through early winter.

• Crispin – Sweet, refreshing and super crisp.
Best use: eating, baking, freezing, or cooking into sauce.
Available year-round.

• Empire – From the Empire State, New York, these delicious apples are a cross between Red Delicious and McIntosh and were developed by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. This crisp, juicy apple has a delightful sweet-tart flavor and creamy white flesh.
Best use: all-purpose apple.
Available between September and July.

• Fuji – Fuji is a cross between Ralls Janet and Red Delicious. Sweet flavor and firmness.
Best use: fresh for snacking
Available year-round, beginning in September.

• Gala – Crisp, juicy, and very sweet.
Best use: snacking.
Available year-round, harvesting starts Mid-July

• Granny Smith – Very tart flavor.
Best use: an all-purpose apple, Grannies work equally well as a snack or in pies and sauce.
Available year-round, harvested in August

• Jonagold – A blend of Jonathan and Golden Delicious apples, New York native Jonagold offers a unique honey-tart flavor and crispy, juicy, nearly yellow flesh.
Best use: eating fresh and for cooking.
Available October through July.

• McIntosh – Juicy, tangy, tart McIntosh has a tender, white flesh. Best use: snacking, applesauce, pies
Available September through May

• Paula Red – Sweet and tart
Best use: snacking and making applesauce.
Available: August

• Red Delicious – Sweet, crispy, juicy, the Western Red Delicious are elongated in shape, with pronounced “feet”, the Eastern-grown Delicious are more round. Best use: eaten fresh or in salads.

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe Notes:

• All the spices, and the brown sugar, are “to taste”. This means if you would like more cinnamon spice, use it! Not the biggest fan of allspice? Cut back on the spice. If you would like a sweeter apple, use more brown sugar.

• This recipe may be doubled or tripled. Just use a larger pan to accommodate all the apple slices.

• Choose an apple that will cook well. I have listed a few above, but some “better” choices, in my opinion, are Cortland, Empire, McIntosh, and Paula Red. You use the apple your family likes most when cooked.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe

Warm, homemade sweet rolls; what could taste better? And sweet rolls aren’t just for breakfast or the holidays! Make this delicious orange sweet rolls recipe any time of year, and serve them up for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or a wonderful lunchbox treat.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe

I know people immediate think “homemade sweet rolls? That a lot of work!”, when they see a sweet roll recipe, and I am not going to lie, this is not a 10-minute slap-it-together-fast recipe. However, it is not a difficult recipe to make either. And once you have made these a few times you will wonder why you ever bought premade, canned sweet rolls.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe Notes:

• About the only “tricky” part of this recipe is making sure the milk mixture doesn’t get too hot and kill your yeast when added, and not so cold that the yeast will not activate. This is a great article all about yeast. Pay particular attention to the part about proofing yeast.

• One thing I disagree with in that article is the “wrist test”. That may have been great back before thermometers were prevalent, but these days? Use a thermometer. It is just a wee bit more accurate than your wrist.

• 5/6ths of a cup of sugar is a weird measurement. It is 1/3 of a cup of sugar for the dough, ½ a cup of sugar for the cinnamon sugar.
