WOW!! This is a fabulous dip for apples.  Breast feeding a 4 month old and training for marathon #12 racks up quite an appetite with very little time to satisfy it. This is so easy to make and very filling when paired with an apple. You can use all nut-butter if you don’t...

This is one of my favorite dishes which I make often. I have never served it with the pine nuts or ricotta mixture. It tastes great on its own or in a wrap. Add some lean turkey or chicken breast for extra protein if you like.

Don’t be afraid to get creative with the veggies. I didn’t have any green bell pepper so I used match-stick carrots and I replaced green onion with 1/4 cup extra onion.  I ended up doubling the recipe and used half chicken half pork loin. It was a big hit dish
