Makes 12 pizza cups.
These individual muffin cup pizzas fill all the holes, pardon the pun. All that’s needed are 12 little baked cups that kids can fill with healthy ingredients. From creamy hummus to guacamole and simple marinara, the real fun is in squeezing the ingredients from a collection of squeeze tubes. No fuss, no muss … though no guarantees.
With very little kids, make fillings ahead. Let them fill their own pizza cup with hummus, marinara sauce, and yogurt.
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
Using 3 in (8 cm) cookie cutter, cut tortillas into 12 rounds. Save remaining tortilla pieces for toasting and dipping. Lightly brush tortilla rounds and muffin tin with oil. Gently press one tortilla round into each oiled muffin cup. Toast shells in oven for 8 minutes or until almost crispy and pale golden. Remove pan from oven and set aside to cool.
In bowl of high-speed blender or food processor, add hummus ingredients. Pulse until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl a couple of times. Add a little more water if mixture is too thick; it must be smooth and thin enough to be squeezed from a tube. Transfer to squeeze tube and refrigerate.
Clean blender or food processor and add guacamole ingredients. Pulse until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl a couple of times. Add a splash of water if too thick. Transfer to squeeze tube and refrigerate.
Place marinara sauce and yogurt into their own separate squeeze tubes. Refrigerate.
When ready to assemble, squeeze about 1 Tbsp (15 mL) hummus into bottom of each cup. Top with a squeezed dollop of guacamole, a drizzle of marinara sauce, and yogurt. Garnish with a slice of olive and a parsley sprig. Best when eaten immediately.

Tarts are timeless, and a good tart is always a people-pleaser. And who doesn’t love something with chocolate in any form? This classic tart is so easy to make with fresh fruit and hints of orange in a delicious chocolate crust. Once firm, it cuts like a dream into 16 easy slices. Fruity faves This remarkable tart lends itself well to a bevy of flavours. We conjoined raspberries with chocolate and orange in our tart. But you can stretch the boundaries with all sorts of fruits such as mango, pineapple, and papaya. If you’re longing to go somewhere tropical but the opportunity has scooted away, make this timely tart and fill it with the flavours of the tropics.
This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
