Tender & slightly sweet, these Cream Cheese Apple Muffins are great for any time of day. The finely diced apples are a nice burst of sweetness, while whole wheat flour, wheat bran, and wheat germ help add a little nutrition and delicious texture. I love how light and not overly-sweet they are; it’s hard to eat just one, especially warm from the oven with a pat of butter!
Taquitos are a fun food for appetizers, or even a main dish. They are great for the whole family, and perfect finger food for dipping in a side of salsa or cheese dip. This simple recipe is also freezer friendly. So, whip up a double batch and throw half in the freezer for a quick meal in the future!
I just love lettuce/spinach salads with fruit and nuts. I don’t know what it is about the combination of those things that draws me in, but I have been known to fill my plate with one of these salads even when the main dish is one of my favorites. Mandarin Orange & Almond Salad is one of those amazing combinations. The sweetness of the oranges, the crunch of the almonds, and the tang of the vinaigrette are absolutely irresistible. I could make a meal of this salad on its own.
Who doesn’t love 7 Layer Dip? While I love the flavors, I always feel like it’s a little messy to serve. So, I took some inspiration from my aunt’s sausage stars, and decided to make 7 Layer Taco Cups! They are so fun and full of flavor. Your guests are sure to be impressed, because although they look like a lot of trouble, they come together in a snap!
