Apple-Berry Oatmeal Bars


This recipe is my new favorite breakfast on the go.  They are soft, chewy and sweet...without any add sugar (sweetened by maple syrup and applesauce).  This is a great recipe to have kids help with.  My girls loved helping whisk and pressing the mixture into the pan the most.

Lettuce Wraps with Beet Pesto


This recipe is as delicious as it is beautiful.  A versatile recipe that works for everything from a healthy veggie-packed snack to an elegant appetizer at a backyard party.  

I adore the pesto and have been putting it on everything (salads, rice cakes, crackers, chips, sweet potatoes).  My girls loved it because it was bright pink.  I recently made this recipe during culinary class, part of Summer on the Farm, with some amazing budding chefs and all of them tried it - many of them even liked it.  Definitely a win in my book.  Plus it's loaded with nutrition.  Beets are rich in vitamin C, fiber, potassium and magnesium just to name a few.
