Mini Cheesecake Bites

I’m totally obsessed with small desserts–from mini cheesecakes to bite-sized brownies.  Maybe it’s because you get to have multiples.  Isn’t variety the spice of life?

Then there’s their ability to right-size—so everyone from Great Grandma to the school track star can get just what they want. 

And mini cheesecakes can be the star of any small dessert show.  Flavorful, varied, and crowd-pleasing, they’ll rock your next dessert tray. 

Bite-sized cheesecake?  I’ll take 3 or 4 (shhh)!   Read more

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

We have an inside joke in our family.  It started way back when our oldest was a toddler and declared, “Fall is the best time of my year.”  We’ve quoted it ever since!   

But “fall” treats don’t need to be restricted to fall.  Especially if they’re as easy and nutritious as this Pumpkin Soup with Coconut Milk. In fact, I decided to make a double batch since it’s an easy healthful dish that’s perfect for freezing as leftovers. Read more

Tempeh Reuben Sandwich

With tangy dressing, creamy cheese, and tart sauerkraut, you won’t even miss the corned beef in this tasty Tempeh Reuben Sandwich. 

TEmpeh REuben

I still remember my very first Reuben. I was a college student and, in the dorms, they would sometimes serve this fun and tasty sandwich.

Back then, I was very active, with daily ballet classes.  And courtesy of the dorm’s all-you-can-eat policy, I could gobble down three of these hearty sandwiches–without gaining an ounce. Yes, those were the days!

Of course, a Reuben sandwich isn’t exactly health food with its juicy (read, fatty) corned beef.   But it sure is tasty—and you can make it a bit better for you my swapping out the corned beef for nutty soy-based tempeh.  It’s even vegan if you use a vegan cheese and dressing.  And it still tastes amazing.  

Yes, a lot of the appeal of this sandwich comes from the blending of the flavors.  The crunchy rye, tangy Thousand Island dressing and more all come together–whether you have it with meat or not! Read more

Refreshing Peach Bellini

Ready for some fun entertaining? Whether it’s brunch, or drinks on the deck, a fruity Peach Bellini will add cheer to your event.

Peach Bellini

A Peach Bellini is a fun, fruity cocktail.  Sweet and bubbly, it would be welcome at many different kinds of events from brunches to garden parties. 

Made with pureed peaches and topped with Prosecco (though other sparkling wines can be substituted), it’s traditionally served in a champagne glass.  And because it’s so fresh and fruity, you don’t even need to say “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!”  Read more
