I love Valentine's Day! It's not only a day to celebrate my cherished relationship with my husband, but it's also a 'month' whereby I celebrate my great friends. Here's a super easy dinner to prepare for friends to say 'thank you', and best of all it's nutritious and heart healthy!

The holidays are all about spending time with friends and family and enjoying special treats. One of my most favorite holiday traditions is having a Cookie Exchange Party.
Will I ever tire of pumpkin? I think not! Quiche is sort of my easy go-to thing to make when I have guests coming for a little bite to eat. The beauty of quiche is that it may be served hot or just slightly warm, so I don't have to obsess about the serving temperature. This savory pumpkin quiche recipe with whipped egg whites comes out light and fluffy almost like a soufflé.
