2. Chicken Apricot Panini
This Panini will make you a very popular gal due to its secret apricot preserves mayonnaise that will leave your lunch companions drooling for more. Just cut that chicken breast into strips, add the provolone cheese, red onion, sage and pop it into your panini maker or on that hot grill. Pan-tastic!

3. Apricot Pie
My oh my, nothing screams “home-cooked” like apricot pie. All you’ll need is 2lbs of fresh apricots, flour for the pie crust, sugar, butter and nutmeg for a dash or pungent sweetness. The key is pulling the apricots with their skins apart into halves, discarding the pits. Serve with your favorite tea.
