These salmon cakes are so tasty - and gluten-free, too. No one in our family has gluten issues, but being a food columnist, and cooking for a large group this past summer with a variety of dietary restrictions, I realized that I needed to step up my GF game! I haven't ...By Susie Iventosch

Spicy, nutty and moist morning glory muffins hit the mark
I just adore morning glory muffins. They are my favorites - full of spices, nuts, fruit, and even carrots. Many bakeries make great morning glory muffins, but the best I've ever had were those from Stacey Cakes bakery in McCall, Idaho because they have the warm spice ...By Susie Iventosch

This is a fun twist on hummus, made with fresh-diced jalape¤os, cilantro and lime juice to give it a "south of the border" flair. We added 1.5 jalape¤os, but you can add as much or as little as you like to suit your personal tastes. The fresh cilantro gives this hummus ...By Susie Iventosch
