Super Slaw with Cider Vinegar Dressing by My Utensil Crock

Some days, I just need healthy veggies until I can't chew any more. Today - sandwiched between last week (a busy week at work where I wasn't able to bring lunch), and this coming week (with a trip to Omaha for several days of wedding festivities for a friend) - was one of those days. So I got out my food processor's shredding disc, … [Read more...]

Roasted Red Pepper Dip {Greek Yogurt}

Roasted Red Pepper Dip by My Utensil Crock

People love snacking. And when it's healthy snacks? All the better. Heck, more than once a week, I call that "dinner." I stumbled upon this idea when I was prepping to give a small-group cooking class in my home. We would be making my Kale and Egg Quiche with Sweet Potato "Crust," but the participants would likely arrive hungry, and the … [Read more...]
