Pomegranate Avocado Salsa

This Pomegranate Avocado Salsa is my favorite appetizer to make during the Christmas season. I was inspired by a recipe I saw many years ago in Cooking Light magazine, and it has been my “go to” since. My first attraction was the colors of all the ingredients and how I thought together they would make an attractive and colorful addition to any table!  And I knew the flavors together would be a Gr8 combo. The first time I…

Caramelized Potatoes (Karamelliseret Kartofler)

How exciting! We were invited to a Danish Christmas dinner, a Gr8 theme we had not yet experienced.

The next step was to create a way to invite our Gr8 friends…

Super Simple Spinach Balls!

A-B-C Apple Blackberry Crisp

A fruit crisp is one of those desserts that can be enjoyed any time of the year and as easy to make as ABC! This summer I made a peach blueberry crisp for Jurga and Tim’s Gr8 dinner. Today when I wanted to make another one, and although it feels like summer outside here in California, I realized that peaches were no longer in season. As I stood in the produce department and glanced around, I decided to…
