One of my favorite restaurants, the Red Door Grill offers Jalapeno Fried Chicken every Thursday and only on Thursdays. Let me tell you it’s REALLY REALLY good! It’s marinated in buttermilk and jalapenos for 4 days or so they say. I was so impressed that I decided to make my own fried chicken but I chose to use Hatch green chile in lieu of jalapenos. What New Mexican wouldn’t pick green chile over jalapenos? I pan fried it browning the outside and then let the oven do the rest. For me it’s much easier to cook the chicken evenly throughout that way. The chicken is so moist with a golden crunch outside and a hint of spicy green chile in every bite. A side of mashed potatoes with green chile gravy made this one of the best comfort meals I’ve had in a long time!

Way back in 2011 I posted “Dessert Egg Rolls” which became on of my most popular desserts. I hope these apple pie egg rolls will be a big hit too. I made them individually so they are always hot and crisp. Paired with salted caramel sauce to dip or drizzle over top makes them even more delectable. It’s apple season and you’ll find an abundance of apples to choose from this time of year. My favorite cooked apple pie filling made up approximately 12 egg rolls. Using cooked pie filling allows you to keep any unused filling in the refrigerator and cook the egg rolls up fresh. They are easy to roll and pan fry in just a few minutes. Hope you enjoy these egg rolls as much as we did!

With Autumn upon us you might be thinking it’s time for pumpkin and apples but I’ve still got a little Summer left in me with some late ripened berries. If you like crumb cake you are going to love this blackberry crumb pie. The consistency is similar to pie bars but I chose to bake it in a pie crust and it turned out scrumptious. It’s layered with berries on the bottom swimming in a cake like batter with a golden crisp topping. I’m thinking this would be a great pie to freeze and serve for the holidays, providing I can find these luscious berries again.
