the scoop

Healthy fresh ingredients does not always equate with "you can't eat just one", but this recipe can be eaten with a spoon!

A member of our gourmet group brought this greek layered appetizer to a summer gathering. The recipe originated in Minnesota, courtesy of a creative staffer from Tastefully Simple.

Easy...fresh...delish...deceptive, because the flavors are just so good together.

first things first...experiment with hummus

Try this quick and tasty hummus recipe sent to us by a couple of thirty-somethings…after a long day at work, it’s easy to whip up and very healthy, too!
