A super-chameleon of the food world, this guy has you covered from brunch to dinner to dessert. Mmmm, a full day of b-nut squash! And for recipes that call for mashed squash, check out Cascadian Farm Gourmet Organic Winter Squash -- that frozen find is a lifesaver!

Use this basic dough in a recipe OR just make the rolls plain. Freshly baked bread kicks any meal up about 5 notches. Woohoo! Find the cylindrical crescent pack in the refrigerated section of the supermarket.

Up the creamy chocolate factor in recipes for desserts, family-friendly beverages, and even cocktails! Or just drink it straight (not from the packet, people, mixed with hot water!). You really can't go wrong with this rockin' cocoa.
