If you’re in the mood to make some holiday treats, and baking is not your thing, this bark recipe is for you! I used Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Bar which has no sugar added, so it’s almost sugar free. They are so easy and pretty hard to mess up. Perfect if you’re craving chocolate without the extra sugar! It is so good – I had to hide it from my husband. : ) If peanut butter’s not your thing, you may also like this Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Bark.

What Is Tempeh? All About This Hearty Plant Protein

Looking for a new way to perk up your meat-free meals? Tempeh is a plant-based protein made from fermented soybeans that's easy to find, easy to cook, and well-worth a spot on your weekly shopping list. Nutritious, flavorful, and versatile, tempeh is on a steady rise in popularity, giving tofu a run for its money. Plus it's vegetarian (vegan, actually!) and gluten-free, meaning just about anyone can fall in love with it.

What Is Tempeh

Tempeh is made by cooking, hulling, and fermenting dried soybeans with a yeast starter—similar to sourdough starter but made with rice flour instead of wheat. The resulting mixture is drained and compressed into slabs that are typically sliced, cubed, or crumbled. What may appear to be white mold on the outside of tempeh actually is white mold: remnants of the fermentation (like the rind on Brie), and a natural, harmless, flavorless part of the process. Thanks, helpful white mold!

20 Best Salmon Recipes For Hearty Winter Dinners

Salmon is an excellent go-to weeknight protein, because it cooks quickly no matter how you prepare it and works beautifully with a wide range of flavors. Our favorite salmon recipes are hearty, rich-tasting, and easy to make. When it comes to this versatile, user-friendly fish, it's worth refreshing the recipes you have in your repertoire.

Pick a new recipe (or two or three) and poach, pan-fry, or roast your way to a better dinner (now with less fishy smell!). Believe it or not, it will take you the same amount of time to make these salmon recipes as it would have taken to boil and drain pasta. And while we're on the topic, make some pasta too and eat it with leftover fish tomorrow for an easy, filling lunch.

Peppermint Oreos are combined with cream cheese and crushed candy canes and dipped in candy melts to create Peppermint Oreo Balls. They’re simple, festive, and so delicious.

Cookie tin filled with Peppermint oreo balls on a gray counter

I know it’s only December 4th, but I am already getting the urge to start holiday baking. Only problem is, I don’t really have the freezer space at the moment to store much of anything. That thing is packed with butter, chicken and more mini ice cream sandwiches than I care to admit.

I am pretty obsessed with Peppermint Oreo Balls every holiday season. They’re super simple to make and can easily be adapted to fit your personal taste.

Don’t like peppermint? No problem. Simply use regular Oreos and omit the crushed peppermint, or use any other of your favorite flavors of Oreos. I have used regular Oreos, Mint, Peanut Butter and Peppermint Bark all with great results.
