Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ a quick party appetizer or easy food gift in a jar.  This is a perfect appetizer.  Its  not the least bit heavy so it will not interfere with the rest of the meal.  I like to make it up early in the day. I also like to switch out the cheeses and a little lemon zest will go a long way.  Very eye appealing . Be sure to use pitted olives. And Toss Often.

Coconut Flour Pancakes- made 5-24-12. I increased this recipe by one third, and I was glad I did since it made just enough pancakes for five people. These were tasty and good, with a very slight coconut flavor. The texture is different than white flour pancakes, but all of my kids enjoyed them and cleaned their plates.

Jam Hands: In-N-Out Cheeseburger Copycat. I've never had an In-N-Out burger, but wanted to try this. Made the recipe without any changes. It tasted just as good as the best grilled burgers we  make.

Kale pesto 3/5 it was okay. I prefer basil or spinach pesto to it hands down, though. The kids still ate it up and got seconds though...1/2 cup of nuts, 3 cloves of garlic, 2 cups packed kale leaves (remove tough stems), 3 Tbsp olive oil, good pinch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.  Combine everything in a food processor, pulse a few times, scrape down sides, process until itu2019s pesto (refer to photo).

I have this recipe in an old cook book from a small town in Minnesota.  I used to make all the time and forgot how good it is!  The butter, almond and vanilla extracts give it a wonderful taste.  It keeps well and also freezes well.  You won't be disappointed.
