This week’s Eat and Greet offers dozens of delicious recipes that are easy to make, healthy, flavorful, and creative. Spoon Fork Bacon is an awesome food blog dedicated to making great food that’s easy to cook and affordable. From Smoked salmon pizza to sweet desserts and more, there’s sure to be something to please everyone. Check out some of our favorite recipes from Spoon Fork Bacon:

I’ve never thought of making pumpkin hummus, but now that the thought is in my head, I need to try this recipe. Made with chick peas, tahini, pumpkin puree, garlic, and coconut oil, this pumpkin hummus is the perfect combination of sweet, spicy, and savory. Pair this delicious dip with homemade cinnamon sugar pita crisps for an easy to make snack your friends and family will love.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie Sticks

Okay, we’ve all heard of cake pops before, but pie pops…seriously? This is genius! These perfectly portioned individual pie sticks are filled with all natural peanut butter and blackberry jam (or any kind of jam you like). The crust is light, flaky, and perfect for an after dinner treat. You could play around with this recipe and make your pie pops filled with whatever you’d like (such as almond butter and Nutella, chocolate and peanut butter, or peanut butter and grape jam).

Chocolate Chip, Bacon, and Orange Pancakes
