7-layer Greek dip hummus, light cream cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, chopped Kalamata olives, green onions, feta cheese, and a sprinkling of parsley. Plus, you can either scoop it up with whole-wheat pita chips or even vegetables. It’s a great variation of the classic Mexican 7-layer Dip minus the sour cream and cheddar cheese. Sounds delicious! Maybe try without cream cheese since it has feta too.

Breakfast Basket: A healthy breakfast is often the last thing on your new neighbors' minds as they struggle to unpack and resume normal lives. Line a basket with vintage tea towels and fill it with everything they need to start the day off right -- coffee, tea, milk, sugar, orange juice, scones, butter, and marmalade. All they have to do is find the kettle. Include a card with your name, address, phone number, and an invitation for coffee when they're ready to return the basket.
