Wave Your Flag Cake

Creamy Potato Salad Plus is higher in fiber and lower in fat and cholesterol than the usual potato salad, contains several vegetable additions and is an interesting and delicious alternative that can be made a day ahead.


Halloween  
Dark orange pumpkin and squash and bright colored sweet potatoes are very high in nutrition.  Even if family members are reluctant to eat more of them and gorge on sweets, you can sneak some of their goodness into their diet with this easy, fast recipe for Microwave Pumpkin Pecan Cake, sent by Tupperware manager Heidi Rosen.  

Read this quick and easy way to make your own Caramel Corn.

For Halloween, try Mummified Mashed Idaho Potatoes provided by the Idaho Potato Commission.  Serve this cute side dish with corn on the cob.

This tasty snack, Honeyed Popcorn and Peanuts, is easier and faster than caramel popcorn and mighty tasty, just in time for Halloween and the football season.   Or try Honeyed Nut Popcorn with a surprise ingredient, which can be eaten like caramel corn or made into popcorn balls.

Just in time for Halloween:  Honey Mulled Cider  from - who else - the National Honey Board.

Black Mess:  this gelatin dessert is a great choice for Halloween, but it tastes good anytime and is nutritious, too.  Tell the kids that the grapes are eyeballs. 

This delicious Macaroni and Tuna Salad is a great choice for a Halloween party.  It's economical, tastes great and you can rename it "Worms and Eyeballs".

While the classic toasted-rice/marshmallow recipe adds only sugar and a little fat to the refined but fortified rice, this recipe for Crisp Rice Candy Squares offers additional nutrition and flavor.

This recipe for Buzzards' Nests was swiped from Recipe Du Jour's  excellent newsletter.  It's low fat, whole grain, has some protein . . . a pretty good trade-off for the sugar it contains.  These candies are a fine treat for Halloween.

Like most candies, Chocolate Spiders is loaded with sugar, fat and salt, so it may not be for you.   But if you are going to offer a treat anyway, or the kids are agitating to make their own,  try this one;  edible Halloween spiders with scary eyes.  

Carving a pumpkin or cutting up winter squash?  Don't discard one of the best parts-  the seeds!  Try this easy recipe for a nutritious and tasty snack - Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

New Year
Lactose-free Eggnog is tasty, rich and delicious, and it's safe from salmonella poisoning.


Jewish Holidays
Visit the Kosher Express holiday recipe site with foods for Passover, the High Holidays and Chanukah.

St. Patrick's Day    
Corned Beef & Cabbage Boil takes very little work, and is incredibly satisfying in cold weather.

St. Valentine's Day

Diet food? Of course not, but Valentine's is a day to be extra sweet to those you love. Anyway, chocolate is highly nutritious!  Valentine's Day Cherry Chocolate Cake

This easy to prepare dessert can be prepared ahead, and is delicious and impressive.  You can make it fat-free, although it's high in sugar.  Cherry Trifle is a sweet dish for St. Valentine's Day.  

From the recipe site of the Weedy Lady, a Valentine's Day treat that doesn't break the calorie bank: Chocolate Raspberry Dream Cake


Thanksgiving

Gluten free or low fat diet?  Oven broken?  Whatever the reason you might wish to skip the pumpkin pie, try our Stovetop Pumpkin Custard.

Start now to prepare the stuffing for Thanksgiving.   Here's our recipe to which I am addicted; I make lots extra, cook some in a casserole in addition to stuffing the turkey last minute, and freeze the rest in meal-size packages for later treats.  Classic Bread Stuffing          

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie is rich, easy, and lower in calories than many pumpkin pie recipes.  You can even make an actual cheesecake with it instead of a pie.

Dark orange pumpkin and squash and bright colored sweet potatoes are very high in nutrition.  Even if family members are reluctant to eat more of them and gorge on sweets, you can sneak some of their goodness into their diet with this easy, fast recipe for Microwave Pumpkin Pecan Cake, sent by Tupperware manager Heidi Rosen.

The famous favorite, Green Bean Casserole,  is usually loaded with fat, mostly from the canned french-fried onions.  Here's a version which tastes almost the same, is lower in fat and calories and cheaper, too.  Go ahead-  fix it for the holidays.  They won't know it's a healthy choice!

Same old pumpkin pie?  Not necessarily.  Try Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake.  Is it a cake?  Or a pie?  You decide.
