Food can be a great way to connect with one another and bring back precious vacation memories. Here are a few recipes from favorite Sevierville restaurants to share in your home.

Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant is located in a 100 year old home and serves as the anchor dining establishment for the working apple orchard complex that surrounds it.

If you’re located in Sevierville, Applewood Farmhouse Grill is offering delicious to-go meals and family dining packs , but if you’re not here and are missing the Smokies, you can still serve up some Applewood Farmhouse goodness at home.

The DINER’s classic look and home cooked dishes make it a fun place to eat in the Smoky Mountains. While they’re known for their delicious buffalo burgers, classic sandwiches (their Reuben sandwiches are amazing) and hand-dipped shakes, one of their most popular dishes is made using wine from Sevierville’s Hillside Winery. The DINER’s Black and Blue Cobbler is a gooey good dessert you can make at home.

10 cups blueberries
10 cups blackberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup Hillside Winery’s Black and Blue Wine (order online here)

2 sticks butter

2 cups sugar
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups whole milk

Once butter is melted, pour fruit into the pan and stir to mix together
