I hope there will be some fun stuff for you to learn, whether it be getting rid of bad breath with Oil Pulling, or learning to make healthy chocolates, or snacks in 5 minutes.
I love simple! A few ingredients and an outstanding taste, what more can you ask for in a recipe?
The first time I tried this dip (my friend made some for our camping trip) I was smitten. When I asked for the recipe, she said there really wasn’t one. It was a few ingredients mixed together and it took less than 5 minutes to make. I was floored.
“Really?” I said. I couldn’t believe the simplicity and the taste!
So what better time to introduce this lovely dip now, since entertaining is at it’s peek during the holidays. Take those expensive store bought dips out of your shopping cart and save yourself some money while feeling good that you’re not serving up any preservative, chemicals or “natural flavors” in your dip.
As part of our series to do quick and easy appys that don’t require a lot of ingredients, I wanted to share this super easy holiday appetizer that is not only super tasty, but so easy to make you’ll feel like a rock star in the kitchen.
Now there’s nothing new about goat cheese stuffed dates, but often there are recommendations to wrap it in bacon and then to bake it. Now as super tasty as that sounds, as soon as you need to turn on the oven, the difficulty level gets amped up. Not because baking is difficult, but it’s simply one more thing to worry about, while entertaining, when it’s not even necessary.
I know, you’re probably thinking “Popcorn, really?” But it makes perfect sense. It’s light, so it’s not too filling and won’t spoil the meal. It’s also a much healthier version than caramel corn, and much easier on the waistline than a cheese platter or hor d’oeuvres. It’s also gluten free, dairy free and it’s spiced perfectly for the fall and winter. It’s also very inexpensive and super easy to make.
Around the holiday season, there are several desserts and treats that seem to require sweetened condensed milk as an ingredient. For me there’s only one we make. It’s this one that we featured here last year. I’m pretty excited to try it out with this whole food ingredient instead of the sweetened condensed milk.
I’m not a dairy free girl, by any means, but we don’t buy milk, since we don’t drink it often enough or use it in cereal or anything. So when the opportunity came up to make sweetened condensed milk I opted to make this dairy free version, simply because we always have some coconut milk on hand. Now, if you have your heart set on a dairy version, Kitchen Stewardship has a great one that doesn’t require powdered milk like so many of them do.
