This holiday time of year it’s all about quick and easy meals, and if I can put a healthy seafood burrito on the table in less than 30 minutes, I’m ahead of the game.
When Ron from NuNatural’s offered to send me a box of his stevia products, including an bottle of chocolate syrup, I couldn’t resist making these holiday chocolate cookies. Friends and family can attest to the fact that I do not like to bake. There is nothing about the precision required to bake cookies, cakes and […]
If you saw this appetizer plate on a buffet table, would you think to yourself, “Now there’s a healthy appetizer!” I’m guessing, probably not. Most of us think a “healthy appetizer” means the crudite platter, the fruit platter, or maybe the platter of lean meats we can top our cucumber slices with. I have a […]
I have a crazy obsession with wonton wrappers. Many moons ago, I used them to make mini quiche for an appetizer I needed for a party, and I’ve been hooked on their versatility every since.
