Spinach & Artichoke Avocado Dip

Spinach Artichoke Avocado Dip

I’m really excited to share this recipe for spinach & artichoke dip. First of all it’s delicious, and definitely scratches the itch for a cheese-y, gooey, salty snack. Secondly, it’s only got three ounces of cheese, which means it’s mostly vegetables, which means it’s basically a salad, right? Well, ok, maybe not. But it does […]

Pumpkin Scones

These pumpkin scones are the perfect fall treat.

With the help of the Wayback Machine and screen shots, I was able to recover my old standby. Over the years, though, I’ve made several tweaks […]

This apple crisp cooks up quickly in the microwave and makes a fast snack, breakfast or dessert.

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You reach into your fruit bowl or your crisper drawer for a bright shiny apple, wash it and take a bite, looking forward to sweet juice and refreshing crispness…only to find your apple is underripe, overripe, mealy or otherwise less than ideal.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Recently it seems that a lot of things have been falling into place for me. I’m a person who likes to believe that things happen for a reason, and I’ve been seeing the evidence these past few weeks. Here’s an example: About a month ago, I started looking for an internship, a required part of […]
