Fruit Dip V

Rating: 4 stars 30
A nice refreshing fruit dip. A great way to get kids to eat fruit! Can be used as a fruit topping by adding more yogurt -- blueberries are hard to dip! Use any flavor of yogurt desired.

Easy Granola Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 881
Fantastic bars that have a lot of flexibility. You can adapt the recipe to your liking. Great for hikes, long road trips and camping as they store well and keep fairly long - unless you eat them all! Use any combination of chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut, pecans, almond slices, or any other tidbits you'd like in a granola bar.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 1962
My girlfriend brought these granola bars over for a playgroup one morning and ever since they've been a staple! My son requests them almost daily so I usually triple the recipe and make 2 trays so we have plenty on hand.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 408
These power bars are delicious and much more nutritious than most granola bars. They are very filling, too. Instead of using dried mixed fruit, feel free to substitute any of your favorite dried fruits. Same goes for the nuts.

Rating: 4.5 stars 279

Easy Cheese Ball II

Rating: 4.5 stars 839
A delicious and easy way to enjoy a cheese ball. Serve with crackers and enjoy! You can cut this recipe in half to make a smaller version. You could substitute Colby, mozzarella, or Monterey Jack cheese for the Cheddar the recipe calls for.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 1092
Looking for a refreshing salsa for a warm summer evening? This is our favorite. Serve with tortilla chips. This is also fantastic served on white fish. I often use a canned jalapeno instead of fresh.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Rating: 5 stars 3141
A delicious and easy appetizer. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little bite. Dried basil can be substituted but it is best with fresh.

Fresh Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 66
I love salsa. I always make it. I made this raw salsa recipe and brought it to work. Everyone raved. It is the best salsa I have ever had. The jicama really makes a difference.
