It’s always nice to add appetizers and snack foods to one’s repertoire of go-to recipes. We’ve already made the Spinach and Artichoke Dip twice – once for our Super Bowl Party, and once because we loved it. The “Cheese” Ball and Deviled “Eggs” were also well-received when we made them for holiday parties.

My favorite recipe was the Sweet Pea Guacamole… which we’ve already made several times. The sweet peas and spices go nicely with fresh avocado. The dip takes on a lighter texture and goes easier on the waistline.

Lindsay’s cookies and cakes were our first foray into baking without eggs, dairy products, or fats. We found her recipes surprisingly good. The Chocolate Chip Cookies, Molasses Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Peach Cobbler were our favorites. The Dark Chocolate Truffles deserve an honorable mention.

We gave ourselves a Yonana dessert maker for Christmas and used it to make Banana Ice Cream. It was delicious! This new gadget came with a recipe book, and we’ll make good use of it!

Spike and I tend to be coffee, tea, and water people. We’ll have a glass of wine from time-to-time, but we’re not very adventurous when it comes to beverages. So it was a new thing for us to make mixed drinks, hot drinks, and homemade lemonade. While we’ll likely stick with our usual fare, the Hangover Marys and Mojitos will find their way into the line-up from time-to-time.
