Food tip of the day

Dessert Cups

Turn everyday yogurt into a spectacular dessert with ice cream waffle cups. Top with fresh berries or diced fruit and a mint sprig. Waffle cups are fairly low in calories, so they taste as good as they look without the guilt factor. Instead of buying individual containers of yogurt, you can buy economical quarts of lowfat plain or vanilla yogurt and blend in your own fresh fruit and sweetener. Click here to learn more about yogurt and our favorite artisan yogurts.

It’s Spring, it’s time for Easter gifts, and it’s time to plan for Mother’s Day, May 13 (see America’s Best Artisan Chocolatiers: Part II). April is National Food Month. We don’t know anyone who has trouble celebrating that! It’s also National Florida Tomato Month, National Soft Pretzel Month and National Soy Foods Month. Check out our healthy foods in the NutriNibbles Section). For everyone celebrating Easter, see the treats in store in the Table of Contents below; for Passover celebrants we have some delicious recipes.

In addition to this monthly online magazine, we e-mail our Top Food Pick Of The Week newsletter to opt-in subscribers. If you don’t already receive it, click here to have it delivered directly to your e-mailbox. Of the thousands of specialty foods we taste each year, these 52 weekly recommendations are our favorites for both home use and gift-giving. You won’t want to miss them!

THE NIBBLE™ does not sell the foods we review
or receive fees from manufacturers for recommending them.

Our recommendations are based purely on our opinion, after tasting thousands of products each year, that they represent the best in their respective categories.
