Roasted Jalapeno Dip

Roasted Jalapeno Dip   Currently, this is my favorite Almond Cheeze dip flavor.  It has heat from the oven roasted chili’s and some coolness from the cilantro, topping it with a little taco seasoning blend only amped the flavor.  This alternative to a dairy and soy filled dip is just so good, you won’t miss the things you shouldn’t have.   This would work well not only as a chip and veggie dip, but also...

Simple Granola

       I think I am more in love with granola now than I have ever been.   I ran out of granola again and looked into my pantry and saw there were a few things that were about to expire in the next month or so; shredded sweetened coconut, pecans, and almonds were all part of the pack.  I checked my maple syrup in the fridge after our Sunday Gluten free Pancakes and that was on its way out as well.  How fortuitous, I thought to...

Apple Salsa

Spicy and sweet, with a little bite to it.  This salsa is sure to please.  A mix of cilantro, jalapeno, onion, garlic, tomato and yes, apple!  If you ever make regular salsa a little too hot, you can just add some diced apple slices to cool it down.  Good tip of the day, store that in your thinker cap.         So in my little town, every year we have a Salsa Festival.  At first it was just thrown together, and sparse, laid out in...
