Sweet apple cider paired with a savory meat dish? What's not to love? Pork and apples is a classic pairing that New York Times brings to life with perfection with this main course dish. This dish is easy to bring to life, but the flavor combination makes it seem fancy – be sure to pull it out for your next dinner party!  

We love this recipe from Prepdeck Ambassador . It's a new twist on classic banana bread, with the addition of fall apples! After your annual apple picking outing this year, leave the traditional apple crisp or pie behind and give this recipe a try.

The kids will love this new twist on an old favorite, again, making good use of fall apples. This New York Times Cooking recipe is simple but delicious. We suggest adding a little brie to your list of grilling cheeses to really bring out the tart apple flavors. Ok... maybe this is more of a grown up grilled cheese than one for the kids!
