Apple Cider-Braised Duck Legs

“According to Andrew Zimmern, the key to these tender braised duck legs is the balance between the sweet (apples and honey) and the acidic (salt and vinegar). ‘Taste for that balance before you serve the dish—sometimes a drizzle of your favorite Banyuls or aged sherry vinegar works wonders at the table, he says.’ Bonus: this dish tastes better the next day and also freezes well.”


Sheet Pan Roast Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

“Healthy chicken and sweet potato recipes are always a delicious and reliable choice for dinner. This low-calorie sheet-pan meal combines chicken thighs and sweet potatoes and cooks up fast in a very hot oven. Serve with a fall salad of mixed greens, sliced apples and blue cheese.”
