Apples, apples, apples, and more apples. Oh how I love fall!! Recently I bought a huge crate of organic honey crisp apples at my local farmer’s market, and have been creating new ways to cook with them, or just add them to anything. Salads, breakfasts, side dishes and now dinner. Apples are so versatile to provide that depth, texture, and taste to any fall dinner. Combining it with pecans is a winner winner, chicken dinner!! This savory & sweet chicken dinner is sure to be a hit with everyone, and is even elegant enough to serve to company.

A total of 274 violations were issued by the Dubai Police against watercraft owners and users since the beginning of this year.
According to Colonel Saeed Al Madhani, director of the ports police station, they have issued 228 violations against jet skis and 46 violations against private and tourist watercraft.
Col Al Madhani said the violations issued against jet skis owners were due to several reasons - expiration of the license, entry into prohibited places such as swimming areas and hotel beaches, as well as non-compliance with the specified timings for the use of jet skis from sunrise to sunset.
He said that most violations were recorded near Jumeirah and Al Mamzar beaches, stressing that a Dh1,000 fine applicable for operating an expired vessel, and a Dh2,000 fine for operating a jet ski outside the permitted timings.
Colonel Al Madhani urged jet ski users to abide by laws and ensure the availability of safety equipment such as life jackets as not wearing such is punishable by law with a Dh3,000 fine.
He further noted that beachgoers must be careful not to approach private and tourist ships and should adhere to specified speeds that do not exceed five to seven nautical miles or overload the marine craft.
Colonel Al Madhani remained beachgoers that (Sail Safely) feature on Dubai Police app allows users to track the cruise's journey; warn them about any delays during the trip; identify hazards; send distress requests directly to the Dubai Police, and facilitate rapid emergency response.

Sharing my favorite homemade slow cooker maple apple butter recipe today, since you guys have been asking for it all month long.
As a lot of you have noticed, I’ve been using a ton of apple butter this September, see this honey, apple, cheddar, and bacon panini, this brussels sprout mushroom pizza, this honeycrisp apple old fashioned, and this pastry wrapped baked brie with maple roasted apples. To my surprise, many of you are actually unfamiliar with apple butter. If that happens to be you, apple butter is basically just apple sauce, but thicker and spiced with warm autumn spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. It’s sweet, smooth, and possibly one of the most delicious spreads to put on toast throughout the fall season.
I’ll usually buy apple butter from the store, but on my fall bucket list this year I had written down “make homemade apple butter”. I was so excited that I actually checked the item off my list within the second week of September! I mean, this is amazing because my fall bucket list is huge, and I’ll often make a bucket list and never check anything off!

I personally have heard many people ask such a question and most purists seem to be imposing and adhering to something similar. For them, the craft of landscape photography mostly lies on the act of capturing a scene and depends mostly on “getting it right in-camera”. The goal of getting things right upon the moment of exposure mainly stems from the general aversion towards editing or post-processing. This frame of mind may be coming from a pre-programmed notion that editing is some sort of cheating and that having to edit your photos makes you a mediocre photographer.I think it may be true for most photographers that we all somehow went through a phase when heavy editing and even combining two photos into one image felt so taboo. For a hobbyist landscape photographer, especially one who is very passionate about going to different locations, being there at the right time to, being able to have everything in it’s perfect place, and capturing that scene of perfection, the idea of making heavy and abrupt adjustments to a photo might seem over-the-top and against their own personal art-ethics.
Personally, I must admit that for a good fraction of my journey as a landscape photographer, I made constant effort to veer away from heavy post-processing. For quite some time, I wouldn’t even entertain the thought of learning how to create composites or even a simple sky replacement. But then again, that might just be lazy old me making excuses.

Monday, August 31, 2020 – Another week, another amazing performance from Big Tech – Rinse, repeat. For the past few months, we have witnessed an overall lagging economy that hasn’t quite recovered from Covid-19 become outshined and simply forgotten by market’s major indices, as the technology sector continues its ultra-impressive run. This same pattern has recurred since the March 23rd low in the Dow Jones, which has now rallied over 10,000 points in a little over 5 months’ time.
This week, the Dow Jones Industrial closed at 28,653.87, the S&P 500 closed at 3,508.01 and the Nasdaq Composite closed at 11,695.63, which were weekly gains of 2.6%, 3.3% and 3.4% respectively. The Nasdaq and S&P both closed at all-time highs this week and the Dow Jones is not far off it’s all time high. The usual suspects were from the tech sector; FAANG and its large-cap contemporaries rallied the major indices again, with one of these companies, Salesforce.com Inc (CFM), claiming a spot in the sacred Dow Jones Index, replacing long-time constituent Exxon Mobile (XOM), which has been in the index since 1928.
However, the technology sector was not the only noteworthy story this week, as the Federal Reserve’s Chairman, Jerome Powell, revealed a plan that emphasized low interest rates in the future, even with an inflation increase. Mr. Powell noted the Fed’s new focus on handling inflation will be “informed by our assessments of shortfalls of employment from its maximum level, rather than by deviations from it’s maximum level.” As the Fed becomes less dependent on manipulating inflation based on jobs reports, this news signaled to investors that the Fed will not be intervening and, for the foreseeable future, will let the economy recover the way it has for the past few months without getting in the way.

Washington DC chef Ryan Ratino loves making classic French omelettes for breakfast.
Ryan Ratino, the chef behind Bresca in Washington, DC, told Insider that he often turns to omelettes for breakfast.
“As often as I can, I like to cook omelettes for the simple reason that I absolutely love eggs,” he said. “A true and classic French omelette is incredibly simple, you just need eggs and good butter.”
“It’s a simple combination that yields a subtle and nice tender texture, and rich comforting flavour.”
Ratino also recommends making scrambled eggs and toast with Kerrygold butter, a European-style butter that he loves pairing with eggs.
“It has much more butterfat content than regular butter, which makes dishes have a richer flavour and creamier texture,” he said. “Then top the eggs with your favourite sweet jam for a sweet and savoury contrast, and bundle it up between two pieces of toast!”
