Ahhh-mazing Fall Home Scent

Ahhh-mazing Fall Home Scent

This all natural recipe will have your home smelling like all the comforting scents of the Fall season with very little effort. Once it starts simmering it takes several hours for it to waft through your whole house, but once it does... it smells so great! You can make this either in a small crock-pot or on your stove top.

Basil Ranch Dressing

Basil Ranch Dressing

It's so much healthier for you & your family when you make your own salad dressings. Not only will you eliminate all the additives found in commercially prepared dressings, but you also have full control over the quality of the ingredients. I think you'll find this one especially tasty!

Yield: approximately 2 cups / 8 servings

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasting these healthy green jewels is the best way to cook them, not only for excellent flavor, but to keep in all the precious nutrients!

Serves: 4

Roasted Carrots

Roasted Carrots

I think the reason a lot of people, especially kids, don't like vegetables is because the way they're cooked leaves them bland & tasteless. Not only that, but most methods cook out all the nutrients, but roasting retains all the precious nutrients. You've never tasted carrots, or any vegetable for that matter, until you've roasted them. They are amazingly sweet, nutty & oh so delicious... I guarantee this will become your preferred way to cook & eat them from now on!

Serves: 2 to 3

Peach Melba

Peach Melba

Bright & cheery, smooth & creamy, with a nice fruity flavor & just a hint of tang makes this my very favorite dessert. I'm sure once you taste it, it'll be your favorite too!

Serves: 2

Herbed Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Herbed Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Move over commercially prepared ranch dressings, there's a new, easy to make dressing in town & it's comin' for your salad! Everyone I've served this to says it's the best ranch dressing they've ever had & ask me what brand it is. They're surprised when I tell them I made it from scratch & beg for the recipe.

Yield: 6 - 1/4 cup servings

Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli

Broccoli is one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. Once they try it roasted though... a lot of those haters change their mind. Roasted broccoli has a whole different taste & smell than broccoli cooked any other way. Broccoli is considered a superfood & something you want to have in your diet regularly.

Serves: 2

Zesty Fig Dressing

Zesty Fig Dressing

You can really have fun & customize this dressing by using an equal amount of just about any kind of chopped dried fruit in place of the figs. I've used raisins, cranberries, apples, Medjool dates, apricots & even prunes. Each will impart it's own special flavor & health benefits to the dressing.

Yield: makes enough for 2 large dinner or 3 to 4 small side salads

Power Salad with Orange Avocado Dressing
