This week kicks off the season of parties and good food with good friends. Whether you are entertaining for the holidays or getting ready for Sunday afternoon football, this recipe is for you!

Game Day Guacamole is perfect for any occasion

This seems to find a special place on our party table surrounded with tortillas, pita chips, or veggie sticks; sometimes all three!

Avocados can be a hit or miss when shopping in the produce section, so when you find them perfectly ripe, be sure to grab a few to make this surprisingly easy appetizer.

What I like most about this is this: I know exactly what is going into my snack.

I can pronounce each and every ingredient, can control the salt and love the fact that it is healthy and fresh.
