apple crisp
Holiday meals are  just around the corner, and if you’re slated with bringing dessert, this recipe is perfect.  It’s simple and so delicious that no one will suspect that it’s healthier than the usual apple pie.    The filling is made entirely from apples which become sweeter as they cook. This is similar to what happens …
Garlic and Herb Popcorn, a fall treat
Popcorn is another one of those things that I associate with Fall.  Perhaps it’s because of the popcorn balls that decorated tables at Halloween parties when I was a child, or maybe it was because, when the days grew shorter, we would be indoors in the evenings.   My mom would pop corn on the stove …
Favorite fall soups
Cooler weather seems to have finally settled over our community, and cool weather makes me want to sit down to a warm bowl of soup, stew, or chili after a long day at work.    If you’re not a vegetarian, and you want to add a little extra nutritional punch, as well as extra flavor, to …

I don’t know about you, but I’m really enjoying that Maple Vanilla Coconut Creamer.   While I sip contentedly on my tea, my Facebook friends are singing the praises of the pumpkin spice latte.  I confess that I have never purchased this particular latte, but apparently, it’s quite popular.  Once again, I wondered if it would …
Maple Vanilla Coffee Creamer--Dairy Free and made with REAL ingredients
Today’s post s dedicated to Donna because she gave me the idea.   Since going gluten and dairy free, she has begun to use coconut milk in her coffee.  She tried other types of non dairy milk, but coconut milk has become her favorite both for the flavor as well as for its health benefits.  She …
Cinnamon Apples
I always associate September with apples.  Early apples are ripe in mid to late July , but different varieties continue to ripen up into September.  In my mind, apples and the month of September go together.  For that reason,  my post this month is about apples. Years ago, I purchased a pre-packaged, boxed dinner from …
Can Coleslaw be Healthy?--A collection of 5 healthy recipes
I love etymology.  I realize that this confession will confirm that I am very strange, but I don’t care.  As I was preparing this post, I wondered how a salad made from sliced cabbage came to be called coleslaw.  A quick visit to www.etymonline.com provided me with all the information that I needed.  If you …
