  • Irish Cream

    March 14, 2018

    This Irish Cream is a lavish gift shared with me over Christmas from my friend, Kim Treat. Use the best Irish whiskey you can afford. This is a lovely way to warm up your sweetie! (And we think it is way better than Bailey’s!)

  • Guacamole Christmas Trees

    December 13, 2017

    These Guacamole Christmas Trees of healthy goodness are just delightful to platter and serve! Spread the guacamole on just before you are ready to serve. It will begin to turn brown within 1 hour.

  • Spicy Roast Red Pepper Hummus

    December 13, 2017

    Red Pepper Hummus is always a great healthy appetizer, especially when made from scratch and surrounded with fresh vegetables and whole grain chips for dipping. We made this a bit more festive by coloring it red with the added flavor of roast red pepper and making it a little spicy with chili powder. No tahini in this hummus.

  • Festive Edamame Wreath

    December 13, 2017

    Edamame is a fresh soybean sold most often in the frozen food section. Once they are roasted with salt, you can dip them in tangy soy sauce. Draw the bean between your teeth to release the inside beans. The bean pod is not meant to be eaten.

  • Tomatillo Salsa

    December 13, 2017

    Tomatillos look like little green tomatoes wrapped in paper.  Citrusy and less acidic than a red tomato, they are great roasted or blended into a sauce raw.  Serve this salsa with Jicama slices and blue corn tortillas for a pretty and healthy presentation.
