Fall seems to bring on a lot of dishes that combine sweet and savory flavors: butternut squash in pasta, roasted meat with stewed fruit sauce, even desserts spiced with herbs like rosemary and thyme. Do you like these kinds of dishes? We're always a little cautious when making (or eating!) a sweet-savory dish. These dishes can so easily go from an intriguing play of flavors to a disaster of syrupy sweetness. The key is getting the sweet and elements balanced in just the right proportions. Here are a few recipes we're curious to try: • Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Grapes, Hazelnuts, and Parmesan, from the Kitchn • Braised Short Ribs with Chocolate and Rosemary, from Epicurious • Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder with Melted Apples, from Simply Recipes • Butternut Squash, Sausage, and Sage Lasagna, from Sustainable Table • Grilled Orange Salmon, from Taste of Home What sweet-savory combinations do you like?
