Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks whether watching a movie or just for a snack. Growing up, when my brother and sister and I were at home after school, we would get creative with what we made to eat. One of our homemade "junk" foods was popcorn dressed with powdered jello; we were able to turn regular popcorn into strawberry, lime, or other fruity flavors.

Any variety of root vegetables work--carrots are featured here, but substitute or integrate others such as potatoes, celeriac, parsnips, turnips, or rutabaga. This recipe can be made in advance and refrigerated or served warm. Serve as an appetizer, as a side dish, lunch salad, or just for snacking.

Delicata squash is my favorite winter squash because the whole thing is edible--skin and all! Its light orange flesh has a sweet flavor and it is a beautiful flower shape when cut into rounds. This recipe is not really a cookie, but it is made on a cookie sheet and somewhat resembles a cookie. Delicata cookies make a great appetizer, and people will want to eat them right out of the oven, but watch out! They need a minute or two to cool down.
