Spicy Parmesan Crackers
Fifteen minutes and five ingredients are all you need to create this addictive party appetizer, which will become your new go-to snack for entertaining. To ensure every corner of the crackers are covered, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and shake the crackers with the oil-spice mixture. Not only does this evenly distribute the flavor, but it keeps your hands entirely mess-free. While these crackers can stand on their own, they’d also be great thrown into a homemade party mix—think popcorn, bite-sized pretzels, some peanuts, etc. Or, serve them alongside a plate of cookies or chocolates to capitalize on the beloved sweet and salty combo.
Granola Bar Recipes to Fuel Busy Mornings
Though we’d love to spend every morning feasting on homemade pancakes and soft-scrambled eggs, the reality is that weekdays are usually just too hectic. And that often means resorting to processed store-bought breakfasts, from frozen French toast sticks to sugar-laden granola bars. The good news? There’s a delicious middle-ground that shouldn't be forgotten: homemade granola bars that will revolutionize your routine. All of these recipes can be whipped up over the weekend, then enjoyed en-route to school or the office. We recommend taking an extra minute to wrap them individually, which will make the grab-and-go process that much more seamless. The majority of the bars are no-bake as well, making them incredibly low-effort but deliciously rewarding. Because they’re homemade, these bars are packed with protein, calcium, antioxidants, and more. Whether you prefer soft-baked or crunchy, nut-filled or nut-free, we’ve got a bar that’s sure to satisfy.
Apple Pie Baked Apples
This adorable dessert offers all the flavors and aroma of a warm apple pie, pre-portioned into single-serve treats. Each apple is filled with homemade pie filling and topped with a swirl of pecan-oat crumble. The combination is so good it will have you licking the spoon. Though other varieties of crisp apples work in a pinch, we prefer Honeycrisp because they hold their shape when baked. As far as the crust goes, we love a traditional lattice, but feel free to get creative with all sorts of designs. We recommend serving the whole thing a la mode.
