Roasted almonds with Quinoa, Flax and Sunflower seed by John Spottiswood

This is a great, healthy snack that we had up in Park City this week. We all munched happily all week, and got so much more nutrition from it than we would have from most packaged snacks. Super easy to make and beautiful too!

Super simple - fast - packs just enough punch. It will be the best you ever tasted. Bring on the cervesas, margaritas - and lots of quality tortilla chips! Just like Chipotle - but homemade!

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper.

Spanakopita Dip by Denise Sherin

So yummy! Great for parties and get togethers. Original recipe is posted here but I leave out the dill because I am not a big fan of dill. Serve with fresh pita bread, toasted pita chips or your favorite dippers breads, crackers or veggies.
