Caramel apples are all dressed up for the holidays! Dipped in white chocolate and coated with pistachios and dried cranberries, this elegant dessert will be the talk of any holiday celebration. These pretty and decadent treats double as wonderful gifts, too.
To make sure these beautiful chips cook evenly, be sure to cut them to an even thickness. A mandolin or v-slicer makes easy work of it. While the chips cook, stir them often—again, that promotes even cooking. Finally, don’t be surprised if they aren’t crisp right when you pull them out of the pot—they crisp as they cool.
This pasta dish uses Meyer lemon and olive oil along with fresh basil for flavor, but it's infinitely adaptable, to your taste. Use other herbs, fresh or dried, that you like. Use lime and cilantro and add some hot pepper for a completely different version. Of course, you can remove vegetables you don't have, and you can add others. For a heartier dish, add cooked shrimp or chicken. And ... the best thing is that you can serve this warm, room temperature, or chilled. Serve it for dinner one night as a hot pasta dish, then chill and serve it as a chilled salad the next day.
