This is a nutritious and delicious breakfast cereal. Use any type of dried fruit you desire! You can also use almonds in place of walnuts if you like. Wonderful when served in bowls with milk and fresh berries or sliced fresh fruit.

All-Around Good Smoothie

Rating: 4.73 stars
This is a recipe I experimented with to try to get a good amount of vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber in my diet. The great part of this is that I don't get bored with it (even though I drink it every day) because I can change the type of fruit I use whenever I want.

Yummy granola! I learned this recipe while working at a Bed and Breakfast in DC. All credit goes to "Little Miss Mary!" This recipe calls for 8 ounces of almonds but we recommend using any nuts you desire -- they are all delicious!

Sarah's Applesauce

This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Rating: 4.6 stars
The perfect fruit salad for a backyard bbq or any occasion. There are never leftovers! This is one of my favorite fruit salad recipes, as I think the sauce really makes it. This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy.

A sweet, tart, crunchy side dish that is especially nice in the fall.
