Brownies are like a blank canvas. You can add just about any ingredient imaginable — among the most popular being nuts. Since walnuts are too been-there-done-that, we’re picking pecans. After all, they’re rich in manganese and protein while lacking the saturated fat you’d find in other favorite mix-ins. Read more →
Cookies with no sugar?! That has to be a crime! And it very well may be, but their flavor is just as sinful. Add to the rap sheet turning an old oatmeal cookie on its head, and you’ll have a dessert-for-breakfast, rebel recipe that only real risk-takers are willing to make. But I promise, it’s worth getting caught with your hands in the cookie jar. Read more →
Initially from Europe, eggnog was once only a drink of high society (and didn’t contain alcohol – gasp!) to toast to one’s health. Luckily, milk and eggs are no longer rare commodities and all can enjoy this creamy, comforting holiday tradition. Since the 17th century, eggnog has been twisted and tinkered with to satisfy different tastes. In this version, you’ll enjoy all the original flavors of egg, cream and sugar without tummy troubles or an aching hangover. Cheers to that! Read more →
Move over, Thin Mints! There’s a new mint chocolate treat in town, and (gasp!) it’s healthier! It also requires no baking and the dough gets rolled into bite-sized balls, so you can eat…your…heart out.

Pancakes may seem like a laborious morning meal to make. But, oh contraire! Unless you’re grabbing a protein bar and rushing out the door, nearly every other breakfast requires at least three ingredients. What’s better about these particular pancakes is you get tons of protein, whole grains and pure deliciousness. Make these once and try to tell me I’m wrong. Read more →
I remember when I used to have two oils in my kitchen: canola for baked goods and extra-virgin olive oil for everything else. Now I use dozens. I collect oils the way some people collect coins. Coconut oil (extra-virgin refined, thankyouverymuch) is my all-time favorite, but every time I watch a new health show on TV, I end up buying a different and more exotic form of good-for-you-grease. And I never know which oil to use on what kind of food!
On a cold, dreary day, you crave comfort food – something warm, soft and filling. But when another bowl of steel cut oats just won’t cut it, maybe a fresh-baked muffin will wake you up. No, you won’t gain five pounds just from the smell of these fruity quick breads. Yes, you will feel pleasantly satisfied after only one. For a brunch gathering or a midday snack, these naturally sweetened strawberry muffins are your new guilt-free, heart-warming treat!
