Edamame Green Monster Dip

Edamame Green Monster Dip

  Scare up this hummus with edamame and walnuts for your munchkins to dig into before their Halloween treats. A healthy bunch of parsley makes the scary-good green color, boosts Vitamins K and C, adds flavinoids too, which function as antioxidants. And of course loads…

Salmon with Ginger Corn Salsa

Salmon with Ginger Corn Salsa

What inspires you to try a recipe or choose a dish at a restaurant? Sometimes familiar flavors hit the spot, or ‘what would that taste like?’ makes the choice. I often go with the unfamiliar which is why I tried this recipe from Cooking Light…

Apple-Rhubarb-Ginger Galette

Apple-Rhubarb-Ginger Galette

A galette is my cheater version of pie. Just one crust to roll and no pie pan fussing! Perfect for stone fruits, apples, berries, rhubarb, and oven ready in about 30 minutes. Or maybe a few minutes more if it’s your first time. This is…

Tomato-Peach-Mint Bruschetta

Tomato-Peach-Mint Bruschetta

Banana Avocado Muffins

Banana Avocado Muffins

Why add mashed avocado to muffins? Because avocados are full of polyunsaturated fat (‘good fat’), are a good source of fiber (about 9 grams per avocado), are high in minerals and phytonutrients like Vitamin E, C, folate, magnesium, AND can replace other fat in baking…
