Completely messy, ooey-gooey, and spicy meatball subs. Served with mozzarella and a spicy mushroom marinara, these 100% vegetarian baked meatballs are simply incredible - just like a meatball sub should be.

Hearty Baked Oatmeal

Dear "oatmeal haters," this recipe is for you (and me)! The secret to Bobbi's baked oatmeal lies in a "custard-like mixture" that the oats sit in overnight to "soak up the delicious flavors" of cinnamon, nutmeg and toasted coconut. "This also gives the oats a chewy, nutty texture, which is quite nice - especially when topped with toasted walnuts and dried cranberries and submerged in a puddle of warm milk."

"Who's hatin' on oatmeal now?" Not me!

Date and Walnut Squares

"A delicate pastry filled with date paste and a touch of cinnamon... I always adore the Middle Eastern Cuisine especially when it comes to desserts and sweets..."  I do too. And these stellar squares are a great example: spice kissed, sweetened naturally with dates, with a healthy walnut crunch.

Chocolate Walnut Candy Box

These lovely little confections are actually delightful little walnut cookies:

"These buttery cookies are so soft, they just melt in your mouth. Almost half of the flour I substituted with ground walnuts, for a slightly crunchy bite. You can make them small, as I did, or even cut out cookies, the decision is all yours, but trust me, you have to make these."

Caramel Nut Bars

Caramel Nut Bars

I just love when folks share their FAVORITE recipes. I also love how they describe them:

"The way the butter and sugar caramelize together to create a chewy, gooey, sticky topping has no equal. And the holy trinity of baking - flour, butter and sugar - form a shortbread crust that is tender and delightfully crumbly."

And then there's the layer of crunchy nuts... these bars are bliss!
