Halloween Party Virgin Mary 

Hello, my friends!  It’s October again, the year just flew by really quickly didn’t it?  I know many of you are gearing up for a Halloween party. My daughter’s birthday is at the end of the month and she specifically requested a Halloween-themed birthday so Bloody Mary is definitely at the top of my list of must-haves. Well, in this case, it is a Virgin Mary.  No alcohol in this drink.

Ratatouille Penne Bake 

Although, there are different methods for cooking Ratatouille, when I think of Ratatouille, I imagine a coarse tomato-based stew with sautéed garlic, onions, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers and a mix of green herbs like herbes de Provence.  I like to keep the tradition alive by sticking to the basics of this baked ratatouille recipe.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffin 

The truth is this, I love cooking but have had many fails with baking and quite frankly, I am lazy…enough with the judgment people, don’t judge me…okay, you can but just a little. Don’t worry, I’ll only share my successful creations. One particular recipe stands out because it is versatile and won’t end up on your waistline. This gluten-free pumpkin muffin will have you going back for more.

Homemade Cinnamon Apple Chips 

Homemade Cinnamon Apple Chips are a family favorite. When filling out my grocery list, I make sure APPLES appear first on the list. It hasn’t always been this way, but suddenly my daughters  developed a fondness for apple pie; one likes the crust and the other prefers the filling – story for another day. I knew I needed an alternative to this not-so-healthy comfort food so I started trying out recipes that are lower in calories.
