The apple harvest inspired our apple-themed playlist. Enjoy!

Caramel Apples – “Lost” – Coldplay & Jay-Z

Only Coldplay’s Chris Martin & foodie wife Gwyneth Paltrow could get away with naming their daughter Apple. Is it because they are crazy for Caramel Apples? I think so. Take a listen to this great track with a guest appearance by Jay-Z, and try your best not to get your hands sticky with this great recipe.

Honey-Glaze Apple Pear Tart (pictured at top) – “Tupelo Honey” – Van Morrison

This sweet dessert is almost as enticing as this classic track from the incomparable Van Morrison. The song about love, devotion and dedication is epic and will make your lady swoon — especially after she tastes Kelsey Nixon’s amazing pastry.

Cheddar Cheese Apple Pie – “American Pie” – Don McLean

Don McLean’s signature song about the 1959 plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper is an integral part of American musical history. Some may think it’s a little cheesy, so why not sing along while preparing this Cheddar Cheese Apple Pie.

Apple Muffins – “Everyday” – Fiona Apple

Speaking of Buddy Holly, this is a personal favorite of mine. And one of my favorite Apples (Fiona, that is) did a touching rendition of his sweet love song “Everyday.” Get ready to bake some tasty Apple Muffins and enjoy this taste of the 1950s re-worked by one of today’s most critically acclaimed singer/songwriters.

Simple and sweet, this recipe for Apple Rub is great for all varieties of meat.  And in the five minutes of total time it requires, you can listen to this simple and sweet track by the White Stripes twice.

Chicken Breasts with Apple-Curry Sauce – “Apple Scruffs” – Carlitos Ordax tribute to George Harrison

“Apple Scruffs” is one of the lesser-known tracks on George Harrison’s classic 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. Apple Scruffs refer to the legions of Beatles fans who would wait at random locations in London hoping to grab a glimpse of the Fab Four. This great rendition of the song can be found on the 2006 Harrison tribute album Thanks For The Pepperoni,  released five years after his death. Enjoy this track while preparing Chicken Breasts with Apple-Curry Sauce. Harrison was probably a big fan of curry after spending so much time embracing Indian culture and Hinduism.

Applesauce Apple Tart – “New York City’s Killing Me” – Ray LaMontagne

It’s impossible to do an “apple” list without some kind of tribute to the Big Apple.  There were so many choices here, but I went with Ray Lamontagne’s “New York City’s Killing Me.” New York City isn’t for everyone, but this recipe for Applesauce Apple Tart would likely be enjoyed by most people.
