We’ve been spoiled up here in the Northeast with more than our fair share of unusually balmy weather, but I know that sooner or later winter is going to settle in for good, and I am going to be all prepared with some veal stew with apples.

It’s the perfect thing to have simmering on your stove when there’s a chill in the air and you need a little extra something to make sure you are nice and warmed up. It’s also an easy and welcoming recipe to make when you are going to have a houseful of friends and family during the holidays, and you want to make sure they have something extra delicious for supper.

That’s one of the things I love about this recipe. The other is that it is one of those priceless recipes that you can pull out for a fancy dinner party…or make on a regular old Tuesday night.

Some people were concerned for my safety. Others were just discombobulated inRead More & Get the Recipe
