Antipasto Skewers

At our recent housewarming party, I wanted to create a couple of great party appetizers to serve our guests. These antipasto skewers were a major hit! I loaded them up with mozzarella, roasted peppers, salami and olives, but you can alter them to suit your personal taste. For the vegetarians in your crowd, skip the meat entirely and serve up vegetarian antipasto skewers that are just as delicious!

Pumpkin Spice Vegan Donuts with Cinnamon Sugar

Since my first foray into making donuts this spring with vanilla bean cake donuts, which I doused in blueberry glaze, I decided I couldn’t let the ubiquitous pumpkin spice season pass me by without making another batch of donuts!
