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.

Asparagus with Roasted Red Pepper and Prosciutto

Thick juicy spears of tender asparagus, stuffed with sweet roasted red pepper and creamy aioli, and wrapped with salty savory prosciutto.  This is a great appetizer or first coarse, and can be prepared a bit in advance, served either at room temperature, or cold.  It’s also great for brunch.

Thousand Island Dressing

Sweet, tangy, creamy and just a wee bit zesty, Thousand Island dressing is a comfort food dressing.  Delicious on burgers, Reuben sandwiches, and yes, even salads.

Mocha Brownie Cake

I decided to make a third of the recipe to fit in my 4½-inch spring form pan.  After all, there’s just two of us, so we don’t need a chocolate cake for 12 people.  It was just the perfect amount for the pan too.  It rose into a dome quite a bit, but that just left me with some extra cake to taste as I assembled.
