Mini Graveyard Dirt Cakes via

Mini Graveyard Dirt Cakes. These no-bake dirt cakes are a spooky Halloween spin on a summer favorite. Vanilla Greek yogurt layered with crushed walnut and cookie “dirt,” topped with white chocolate dipped walnut gravestones. Who wouldn’t want to dig right in to these ghastly creations?!

Cauliflower Ranch Mini Meatballs via

 Thank you Simply 7 Snacks for sponsoring this Cauliflower Ranch Mini Meatballs post and thanks to you, my readers, for supporting the brands that make My Cape Cod Kitchen possible. As always, all opinions are my own.  Cauliflower Ranch Mini Meatballs. Perfect for tailgating or serving up as bite-sized appetizers for your fall get togethers. These savory meatballs are oven-baked and made with cauliflower rice (yep!), onion, organic grass fed beef, Simply7 Organic Ranch Veggie Chips and spices. So flavorful. So good. Make extras, you’ll want ‘em. What’s your favorite fall party app or tailgating app? While I love easy and fuss-free hummus + veggies, chips + salsa, fruit + cheese + crackers, it’s also nice to have some more substantial, hearty and warming apps to go along with the cooler fare. One of the foods I’ve [Read More]

Grilled Apple Cheddar & Blue Cheese via

Grilled Apple Cheddar and Blue Cheese. Cranberry walnut bread stuffed with sweet farm apple slices, sharp cheddar, tangy blue cheese and red onion slices. All the flavors of fall in a warm, buttery, crisp grilled cheese. This is an adult version of the comforting childhood favorite you still love. There’s not many things that can top freshly baked bread and cheddar (Cabot cheddar has our heart and tastebuds). Both of these are top on this family’s list of favorite foods. Fall apples are top on that list too. And, apples + cheese are just the perfect pairing, so this Grilled Apple Cheddar and Blue Cheese is extra special. The red onion adds a nice zing and tanginess to the sandwich. Make this grilled cheese for lunch after a morning in the apple orchards. Or make it [Read More]

Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu

Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu.     Roasted cauliflower, beets, onion and tofu. A quick, easy and nutrient-packed dinner that’s ready in 30 minutes. There’s minimal clean-up, so it’s perfect for weeknights. Make it even quicker by throwing all the prepped ingredients onto the sheet pan then into the fridge in the morning, so you just have to pop the pan into the oven when dinnertime rolls around. You really don’t need a recipe for this Sheet Pan Roasted Veggies & Tofu “recipe.” Just throw cubed tofu onto a baking sheet along with your favorite veggies (cut into bite-sized pieces), toss with your favorite seasoning and throw it in the oven until the veggies are just tender – or cooked how you like them. You don’t need to worry about the time/temp for the tofu to cook, […]

Roasted Sweet Potato, Herb and Feta Salad

Roasted Sweet Potato, Herb and Feta Salad. Cubed and roasted sweet potato tossed with scallions, cilantro and feta. The perfect salad to transition from summer into early fall. We roast sweet potatoes on the regular in our house. Usually they’re cubed and simply roasted (garlic salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil) on Sundays, so we have a large batch of roasted sweet potato chunks to eat during the week – as side dishes, atop salads, pan fried as hashbrowns, etc. When I make an extra large batch, I set some aside for this Roasted Sweet Potato, Herb and Feta Salad. Love, love this combo of flavors. The salty and briny feta, the oniony scallions, the fresh cilantro and the sweet and starchy sweet potatoes tossed with rice vinegar (my go-to for salads because of its mild flavor) […]

Corn Salad with Avocado and Crunchy Chickpeas. Fresh corn, black beans, tomatoes, cilantro and scallions tossed with extra virgin olive oil and rice vinegar then topped with creamy avocado and crunchy chickpeas. This vibrant, plant-powered, healthy salad is the perfect side dish, snack or weekday lunch. It isn’t the first or second or third corn salad you’ve seen me make here – but this one is packed with ALL the goodies … look at those crunchy chickpeas! Yes, this Corn Salad with Avocado and Crunchy Chickpeas might look summery (well, it is!), but summer is still officially here. Plus, our garden tomatoes are still coming in AND we can still get fresh corn in our local stores. So, just because #allthingspumpkin have arrived, doesn’t mean we should say goodbye to all the late summer produce we […]
