Rosemary-Roasted Chicken with Apples and Potatoes
The beginning of fall comes with an abundance of apples, which means it's time to start baking! But more than pies, apples roast extremely well with chicken! This dish makes a fantastic sweater-weather meal, with beautifully roasted chicken and an apple, potato, and onion bake that takes advantage of the delicious roasted chicken drippings.
Enzo's Spaghetti all'Amatriciana
My husband grew up not far from Rome, and this is his version of the famous Roman dish "Amatriciana". It calls for guanciale (cured pork jowl), which can be difficult to find here in the states. While some recipes call for pancetta or bacon to be used in its place, we've found that salt pork is a great alternative as well (see Cook's Note).
