Roasted Squash, Kale Pesto, Rice Bowl

Roasted Squash, Kale Pesto and Rice Bowl

This recipe has quite a few steps (something I normally try to avoid), but it doesn’t take as long as you think. To save time, you could make the kale pesto in the morning or the night before. It’s a nice vegetarian recipe to serve to friends and family during the week or on the weekend. If you’re feeding a hungry group, then simply roast more veggies.

Walnut Drop Raisin Cookies

These are an easy, delightful cookie to make when you need cookies in a pinch. They are not too sweet and have a hint of cinnamon. They can be made them with and without raisins, both work for me.

Apple Cobbler with Mixed Fruit

Apple and Mixed Fruit Cobbler

When anyone comes to my house for dinner, they will almost always be served a fruit crumble or cobbler. I find them easy to make, and somewhat healthy because they’re loaded with fruit. Not to mention, they are really tasty! 

This cobbler uses apples, which is always nice in a dessert. The type of apple you use makes a difference because some are crunchier than others. The super crunchy apples don’t soften as well and the super soft apples, like macintosh and red delicious, will turn your cobbler to mush. My first choice for cobbler is a Spartan apple, but any other medium hard apple will do.

This chicken pot pie is very simple to make and worth trying if you want to add something new to your repertoire. It’s a little different then a typical pot pie because it uses spices such as paprika, cumin and cinnamon. It also has green olives and raisins instead of peas and carrots.

Zucchini Pineapple Cake

As a proud recipe hoarder, I feel compelled to grab any free recipe that’s offered to me. This includes recipes printed on food packages, the ones on advertisements of food products, or random recipes given out at grocery stores. I found this recipe at a fruit stand close to our home, which was promoting zucchinis. I’m so glad I picked it up…it’s yummy.

This recipe is adapted from the Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon. Although this is an older cookbook, it has some great recipes. To make this recipe a true vegan recipe, simply swap the cheese with vegan shredded cheese. If you don’t like your dishes too spicy, you can use less cayenne pepper.
