But you don’t have to stop there. I’ve also seen versions that include candied pecans, pineapple, and bacon bits. I prefer to use goat cheese with this recipe, but you could always substitute for cream cheese.

During the spring and summer, I am always looking for recipes that don’t require me to turn on the oven. It just makes life a little easier and a little sweeter at the same time. Enjoy!

Hello! I’m Amber or “RD amber” as I’m known in the twitterverse. I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist passionate about food, nutrition science, and agriculture. I work as a nutrition communications consultant and adjunct professor. When I grow up, I’d like to be a photographer or maybe a backup dancer.

I’m married to a startup entrepreneur and I’m doggy momma to Jacques & Jasper. I’m the girl that laughs loudest in the theater and I hate elevators, escalators, and revolving doors. We live in Nebraska, known as the silicon prairie/ Ag capitol of the world.

Those who know me best would say that I like to stir the pot. I’m sassy, sarcastic and my nutrition views are based on science, not popular hype. My fiends call me a “realistic nutritionist” because I don’t quite the fit the mold of the perfect dietitian. But I love food, creating cool things, and I’m passionate about building community.
