Spaghetti squash is magical. While its texture obviously differs than that of real noodles, when mixed with various sauces, it does give one the experience of eating noodles.

I love making chocolate bark because it’s such an easy dessert to make, but the result is so impressive and pretty. Dark chocolate bark is very healthy, and it makes a tasty dessert or a gorgeous host/hostess gift.

If you like your roasted nuts sweet, double the amount. Click for the recipe
