Quick Spinach Dip

can you buy Lyrica in canada cytotec to buy in canada 9 Nov

I whipped up this warm, cheesy spinach dip yesterday afternoon in about 20 minutes using ingredients I had on-hand — including a bag of fresh spinach I had good intentions of using for salads (sigh) — and it was the perfect snack for a chilly fall afternoon of watching football. You can substitute frozen spinach for fresh, and use your favorite shredded cheeses. Jarred artichoke hearts also would be a great addition.

Turkey, Kale, and Caramelized Onion Meatballs

4 May

I’m always looking for creative ways to incorporate more vegetables into our meals. These turkey meatballs are loaded with kale and are a perfect, healthy accompaniment to pasta with basil pesto or marinara sauce. They’re so flavorful, they’re even perfect by themselves for an appetizer.

Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Dip

1 Jan

I’m all about tradition, and I’ve been eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day (and only New Year’s Day) for as long as I can remember. They’re supposed to bring good luck and wealth in the new year. The only problem is I’ve never really cared for them — until I discovered this dip recipe. It’s cheesy, creamy, and spicy and baked until it’s bubbly and hot. I can’t think of a better way to start the new year. Welcome, 2015!
