You can’t have too many cookies like these around.  Polka Dot Cookies have healthier ingredients and a lot of delicious texture inside.  I love to throw cookie recipes together.  It’s easy to control the ingredients and have a sweet snack in the house within minutes and I didn’t even have to drive to the store.  Yes, I love cookie dough too but I still try to go through the whole process and bake them.  Chewably satisfying!

Rainbow Veggie Hash Brown Potatoes sound like springtime and are as colorful. Hashbrowns and thinly sliced veggies are all fried together. Quick and easy.

Are you trying to think up a new easy recipe that you can serve at this year’s Easter brunch? Well, how about Rainbow Veggie HashBrowns? It sounds like springtime and is as colorful as your Easter decorations. If you are like we are, first, you’ll put on your new Easter bonnet (well, maybe outfit) and then gather up the family and go to church. After visiting with your friends then it is back home to get the party started. Some of your family may already be there and I am sure they all brought something to share at the feast. We have three to four side dishes to make sure all the bases are covered and one has to be the all important potato. Since Easter is always a brunch at our house I thought that Hashbrowns would be great.  Ed loves it when I fry Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes (he can even find them in the grocery store, halleluiah) so I am accommodating him with a little something added to make it festive. Lots of pretty thinly sliced veggies. All pan fried and really quick and easy.

Sugar Snap Peas with Mint and a Giveaway

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and All You Magazine, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #lifeforless http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Sugar Snap Peas with Mint and Mushrooms can be a special brunch or treat on any day of the week. Great fresh or cooked which makes them doubly enticing.

Sugar Snap Peas with Mint is the perfect side dish.  It can be special as in an Easter brunch or you can just treat yourself and your family on any day of the week.  I don’t know why but I always forget about sugar snap peas.  At our local Safeway it comes packaged over by the lettuce.  I must be so enamored with all the varieties of lettuce that my eyes jump over the sugar snaps.  Not anymore!  It is ingrained in my memory and that sweet little veggie is going to make it into our house on a regular basis.  They are equally good fresh or cooked which makes them doubly enticing.
