Curry Spice Sweet Potato Hummus

I was ordering a veggie wrap from a local sandwich shop recently and was offered the option of several different types of hummus, including sweet potato hummus. First, I love that I live in an age of so much variety that I can stop into a little suburban to-go restaurant and have…

Vanilla Maple Baked Stuffed Apple Parfaits

As I sit down to type up the recipe for these baked stuffed apple parfaits (I really love these as a quick, sweet, nutrient-rich breakfast or snack), I’m looking at my napping beagle Calvin and cracking up. Because, as much as I love these baked apples, this recipe is most certainly…

Not wanting post-vacation blues to set in, I had just the thing for the change in climate: steaming, heart-warming bowls of ragù pasta! Ragù is…
