An Interesting Dinner with Linda Hower Bates

lindahowerbates                                             Linda Hower Bates and her daughters.

Linda Hower Bates is a Wellesley College graduate who enjoys cooking, playing outside and chocolate.  Her daughters also enjoy cooking and playing outside- but they don’t like chocolate!

Luckily, there are many interesting treats with no chocolate in them… and here’s one.

Linda and her family learned this fun snack recipe from their favorite farmer.  Every week they visit the farmers market and pick out favorite foods and try new ones.  They’ve even started our own garden now!

Apple Carrot Slaw


1 medium apple
1 medium carrot
1/2 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
tbsp honey

1. Chop the apple and carrots into matchsticks.
2. Toss with honey and seeds.
3. Let sit at least an hour.
4. Enjoy!

Three cheers for healthy and yummy snacks!
