Winner Winner Chicken Dinner - Bon Appetit's Chicken and Ricotta Dumplings

I am not a big dumpling fan so when I saw this Bon Appetit recipe for chicken and 'dumplings' that used ricotta gnocchi instead I had to try it. This recipe did not disappoint! It is a bit of a pain to prepare so I recommend breaking this into steps and doing some of it ahead of time. You could even skip the gnocchi and have a pretty killer chicken soup. Unless you are feeding a ton of people I would also recommend cutting it in half. Half is enough for at least 4 servings if not more. Hope you enjoy!

Bon Appetit's Lime and Blackberry Meringue Pie

I have to be honest about this one. While it is beautiful it was a major fail for me. All the flavors are amazing, but the blackberry compote turned the pie into a soupy mess when I cut into it. This recipe might be worth revisiting if you leave the compote out of the pie and just serve it as a drizzle over the top. For the original article visit Bon Appetit here.

Homemade Granola

After a recent trip to a B&B I have been craving homemade granola. I read a bunch of recipes online and decided to combine them all to make my own version. This type of recipe is very easy to customize. Just take out or throw in whatever your heart desires!
