Goat Cheese Balls

Goat Cheese Balls November 29, 2020

These goat cheese balls only have six ingredients, are quick and easy to make, and are a great Christmas or New Year’s Eve appetizer. They’re naturally gluten-free and grain-free and can be made nut-free, as well. In nine years of blogging, I’ve never posted a holiday appetizer. It’s kind of ridiculous, I know.  I’m just […]

Honey-Ginger Cranberry Apple Crisp

This isn’t your average apple crisp.  It’s full of tart fresh cranberries and it has a secret ingredient in the topping that makes it just a touch spicy.  But not in a spicy-like-cayenne-pepper kind of way.   Because that might be kind of gross.  Although in hot chocolate it’s totally amazing, but maybe not a fruit […]

Quinoa Stuffing Stuffed Squash

This week my column was on Hubbard squash.  As much as I love squash, I had never tried hubbard.  Usually they’re too big(especially considering that besides the kids I’m the only one eating it) and to be honest I’m a little scared of them.  When I was asking about squash for my column, a lady […]
