Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Rating: 5 stars 33
I'm always on the lookout for easy and delicious things to make for breakfast that are on the one hand, relatively healthy and good for you, while on the other hand, not too good for you. I think these really do fit the bill. These are normally made with strawberry preserves, but here we're using fresh strawberries for a little lighter and lower-sugar approach. For best results, refrigerate before serving.

Homemade Tater Tots®

Rating: 4 stars 20
Never have to buy frozen store bought Tater Tots® anymore. This will be a good, more healthy recipe for kids and adults to remember their childhood favorite. Frozen-friendly! Serve immediately, garnished with parsley. Dip the tots in our famous Divine Kuizine Remoulade sauce.

Deep-Fried Dandelions

Rating: 4 stars 5
The edible flowers on these weeds are nutritional powerhouses, bursting with vitamin C, and they taste amazing when coated in this tempura-style batter and fried. Serve as an appetizer or a crunchy topper for your favorite spring salad.

Baked Eggs in Avocado with Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars 4
If you like avocado, you'll love this great new recipe idea featuring three of our favorite things – bacon, avocado, and eggs.

Popcorn Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
Bite-sized pieces of chicken that are sure to be a family favorite. I love to serve it with homemade mashed potatoes and green beans.

Healthy Chocolate Smoothie

Rating: 4 stars 10
The sweetness of the bananas in this smoothie means you don't need to add any sugar to sweeten the cocoa. This is my go-to for a midday energy boost and kids love it too.

Fried Flour Tortilla Chips

Rating: 5 stars 16
We first had these while on vacation in the Caribbean. After returning, I had to figure out how to make them. We now prefer these to store-bought corn tortilla chips.

Coconut Oil Popcorn

Rating: 5 stars 28
One of my favorite snacking alternatives.

Coconut Flour Chocolate Brownies

Rating: 4 stars 96
I love chocolate brownies! These brownies are not only dark, rich, and delicious, but they are also gluten-free, dairy-free and healthier for you, using coconut flour and coconut oil. I can't decide whether I like these better warm out of the oven, or cooled the next day. Both ways are so indulgent!

Light and Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Rating: 4 stars 14
This is a light version on a classic appetizer. Serve with marinara sauce.

Cream Cheese Penguins
Rating: 4.5 stars 876

Just imagine a cute display of penguins, made with black olives, carrots and cream cheese! You can add scarves and hats by using fresh red pepper strips, or canned pimentos cut into different shapes. Use frilly toothpicks if you can.
