No-Bake Fruit Squares
These squares are the no-bake version of the double-stuff fruit squares already featured on the blog and a great choice for entertaining, brunch or afternoon snack.
Beet & White Bean Dip
While hummus will always hold a very special place in my belly – sometimes it’s time for a change. This technicolor dip is where it’s at today.
Basic Veggie Pâté
This is a basic all-purpose veggie-centric spread that works beautifully on crackers, toast, in sammiches or pan-fried and crumbled on top of a salad.
Half-way between a cracker and kugel, the four-year-old in residence here declares that ”it’s good Mom. It doesn’t taste healthy;” which is praise coming from a child. Bonus – it actually is good for you even though the squash provides sweetness in every bite.
Superfood Smoothie Bowl
An excellent alternative to highly processed breakfast cereals if you are slowly transitioning into whole foods.
(Dumpling) Squash Oatmeal Cookies
Warm cookies on a cool afternoon with some hot tea.
