Once Upon A Time Recipes

Once Upon A Time returns this Sunday with an episode called, "In the Heart of the True Believer." In honor of the new season here are a few recipes for your Once Upon A Time viewing party: Poison Apple Salad with Cranberries and Blue Cheese, Captain Hook Breadsticks and a new blue drink called The Neverland.  

Poison Apple Salad with Cranberries and Blue Cheese


2 Red Delicious Apples, cored but not peeled
1 Gala Apple, cored but not peeled
2 Granny Smith Apples, cored but not peeled
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup blue cheese chunks

1/4 cup Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Vinegar 
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

Chop all apples into half inch chunks. Add cranberries and blue cheese. Mix vinegar and olive oil together add a dash each of salt and pepper. Mix dressing. Add to the salad and toss. 

Captain Hook Breadsticks 

Pillsbury breadstick dough (from the refrigerator section)
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese

The dough is easier to work with if it is still cold from the refrigerator. Break apart the twelve bread sticks. Twist one as if you were going to make a regular bread stick only form the twist into a hook. Then take half of another bread stick and make the stem of the hook. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cook according to the directions. 

Last but not least is our festive and refreshing blue drink, called The Neverland. The blueness of it was inspired by Kendra Kelley's post on The Wave with a Blue Drink from the summer drinks with reads series

The Neverland

1 finger Bacardi Dragonberry Rum
2 Tablespoons Toroni Blue Raspberry Italian Ice Syrup
Crushed ice

Fill your cup with crushed ice, add in a finger of Dragonberry rum and add in the syrup. It's that easy and that delicious.

Now sit down and enjoy the season premiere of Once Upon A Time.
