A note about serious food allergies

Fall flavors abound in this meal, a stunner for all seasons, but especially the September through November stretch. A is for autumn and A is for apple, with the fresh Fuji apple and Brussels combining for delightful, easy flavor. The chicken is baked with nutty Parmesan and smoky red pepper pesto, a triumphant combination for the cooling evenings. Tastes like fall spirit.
