Pear Chips with Pumpkin Dip {Recipe Redux}

Pear Chips

    Fall is coming soon, and it’s approaching much faster than I expected this year! Even though the official first day of fall isn’t until Tuesday, I am ready for fall flavors and foods. I think the early snow we had a couple weeks ago quickly changed my gears from summer to fall earlier […]

Collard Wraps with Tahini Basil Ranch

Turkey Collard Wraps - The Fit Cookie

Greens…most of us know we should be getting more of them in our diet, but if you’re anything like me, that can be difficult to figure out sometimes!

Fresh Poblano Salsa

Poblano Salsa

This is a fantastic salsa, even better than the jars store-bought cooked salsa made out of stewed tomatoes. Fresh salsa tastes so much better than cooked salsa, especially if you can get excellent tomatoes. Raw tomatoes have less acid in them than cooked tomatoes , so we don’t eat tomato-based recipes very much because of […]
