Blueberry Spinach Oatmeal Bars Yep, I said spinach. In dessert. I love making these to hand out when I’m teaching a class, especially to kids/teenagers. I have them grab one to munch on before I get started.

Now, I know that ranch is the king of salad dressings. People love it on salads, of course, but I also know people who won’t eat a vegetable unless it’s dipped in ranch, and of course, even their pizza needs a good dunking as well. So you may think I’m wrong when I tell you that… Continue reading Green Goddess Salad Dressing
This dressing really couldn’t be any more simple. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already, and it takes approximately 2.6 seconds to put together.
