As fall is upon us, I’m always looking for new ways to eat some of my favorite fall foods like sweet potatoes. I’ve made them into a soup, baked them as fries, and now I’ve made some pretty sweet frites :)
Kale chips are light and crispy while satisfying the need for some kind of salty, savory snack. Kale is naturally extremely rich in vitamins.
This appetizer (or mid-afternoon snack) is quite tasty and filling. Give it a shot if you love celery :)
I LOVE salsa on so many things. Try this freshly made alternative to canned salsa which can be loaded with sodium.
Sometimes the most simple ingredients can make a really delicious, healthy snack. This recipe is for my favorite healthy dessert believe it or not. It has 4 ingredients and definitely satisfies my sweet tooth while sticking to my diet :)
I can imagine that this would also make fore a yummy breakfast too. It leaves room for you to add additional fruit, or just to savor the simple ingredients as they are.

Hummus is a staple in my fridge on most days. It’s healthy and it tastes great on pitas, chips, crackers or even on a sandwich as a spread.

My favorite salad at an Italian restaurant is caprese, hands down. There is nothing like fresh Mozzarella, sweet tomatoes, basil and the tang of balsamic vinegar drizzled on the top.

This is just one of a few appetizers I plan to post in the next few days. With all the holiday parties coming up there is no doubt some of you might be in need of an appetizer idea that isn’t just the standard. This creamy and cheesy dip has an added kick with green chiles and cayenne pepper. Be sure to drain the ricotta the day you want to serve the dip. I recommend serving it with tortilla chips, but bread or crackers would also work well.
This recipe is great for the winter holiday season, especially around Thanksgiving. Enjoy the flavor of this classic holiday dessert (or appetizer!) minus the baking (I’m not much of a baker). It’s really easy to make and it tastes great! Serve with cinnamon pita chips. As with any of my recipes, please double, triple or quadruple the ingredients to make enough for your party.
