Cantuccini

These little Italian biscotti are super easy to make, and relatively quick.  Cantuccini are a specific type of biscotti, usually dipped in a sweet Tuscan Italian wine called Vin Santo.  When I was in Italy I was served this after dinner, and it’s delightful.  Vin Santo brings out the flavor of the almonds, and dipping the Cantuccini softens it.

Carrot Cake Seed & Nut Muffins (& Bread)

This is a twist on the base recipe – Seeded Nut Bread.  Adding warm cooking spices like cinnamon and ginger, shredded carrots and sweet raisins turns it into a delicious Carrot Cake Seed & Nut Muffin.  Like the base recipe, I call it a seeded nut bread or muffin, since there is no wheat grain – just seeds and nuts.

Pineapple Shrimp

This sweet shrimp dish is a tropical delight.  A hint of vinegar helps to subdue the sweetness a bit.  Serve this dish with steamed broccoli and brown rice, which soaks up the extra sauce nicely.

Trader Joe’s Spinach and Kale Bites

These little tender green bites from Trader Joe’s are quite tasty, and a bit addictive.  A perfect healthy appetizer option, they have a slow warm spice, to complement the cheesy spinach and kale.  They are great for kids and a fun way to sneak them some vegetables.  I’m always trying to find healthier vegetable or fruit based appetizers, and this fits the bill.
