Healthy Valentine's Day Alternative Snacks, Recipe of the Month, February 2019

Easy and satisfying sweet suggestions from Joy Bauer (Nutritionist and featured regularly on the Today show):

1. Chocolate chip-stuffed raspberries

Instead of gobbling down a few chocolate candies with fruity fillings, enjoy 10 chocolate chip-stuffed raspberries for only 35 calories (double the portion and more than quadruple the nutrition). Simply stuff each raspberry with one semi-sweet or dark chocolate chip (flat part outside) — it's that easy. Bonus: These bites are scrumptious, adorable and pack fiber and antioxidants.

These fall-inspired burritos are a great way to use extra butternut squash. Hearty and full of fiber, these burritos are a satisfying and filling option.

Albondigas (Latin Meatball Soup), Recipe of the Month, October 2018

Albondigas are Spanish-style meatballs that are often served in a tomato sauce, or in this case, soup. This is very flavorful and even better the next day. Cooking the meatballs and vegetables in the soup broth eliminiates the need for extra oil and is a lot of fun for children! - Julie Lopez (Timber Pass)

Two Green Bean Recipes, Recipe of the Month, August 2018

It is that time of year when we are harvesting an abundance of green beans from our garden. We have found that the variety Crockett, is an exceptionally tasty, deeply colored, narrow bush style green bean that has a flavor that surpasses any green bean we’ve ever tasted. Also, it grows like crazy and is pest free. Much of the harvest gets blanched for two minutes (quick boil - quick cooling rinse), then frozen on a cookie sheet, and finally packeted in vacuum bags. - Joe Pardue and Marcia Griswold (Timbercrest Trail)
