Chicken Thighs with Hard Cider, Apples and Rosemary

Tasty Eats

The following chicken dish is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I’ve come up with. Besides salt and pepper, it contains only 5 ingredients, yet it is full of flavors,  as if it was made with so many more.
The hard cider marinade gives the chicken wonderful flavor, with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. The crisp apples, dried shallots and rosemary, all add their flavors, textures and aroma. Roasting the chicken in high temperature, with the marinade, results crispy skin on the outside, and succulent meat inside, while the stewed apples make for a tasty side.
Preparation is so easy and can be done in advance: place the marinated chicken in the fridge, and let the marinade do its magic. Roast just before serving, and enjoy.

* Alaea, Hawaiian red salt, is an unrefined sea salt, that was mixed with a red alae volcanic clay. It’s…

Grilled Vegetables & Bacon Packet

In Dianes Kitchen


My husband is my grill master. This is his recipe and he made it with the peppers he picked fresh from our garden. These are very easy to make and you can throw them on your grill while you are cooking the rest of your meal. The best part about making these, next to the taste of course, is that there is no pan to clean!

Roll both pieces of foil up and tightly together

on one side until…

Vegan Pineapple Upside Down Cake


I love pineapple upside down cake because they are so simple to make. No frosting to worry about. Just mix, toss it in the oven, turn it out and your done!

Vegan Pineapple Upside Down Cake MSnubutterfliesNote: This recipe makes one 9 inch round cake. So you would need to double it for a larger cake.

Set your oven to 350 degrees F. In a 9 inch round cake pan melt 3 tablespoons coconut oil in the oven. I use my 9 inch round glass casserole dish. I prefer glass for this because it bakes more evenly and prevents the brown sugar from burning.  Spread the brown sugar over the melted coconut oil. Place pineapple rings over the brown sugar. (Maraschino cherries optional) Set aside.

Mix the almond milk and vinegar together in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.

Add the baking soda to the…
