There’s no sweeter way to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, than with this gluten-free honey cake. Made with almond flour, a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat-based flours, it’s not only OK for everyone to enjoy, it’s infused with natural, nutty flavor. Before serving, drizzle on extra honey and sprinkle with lightly toasted almonds—yum! Thinly sliced apples also make a nice finishing touch.
Don’t be sad summer’s over—celebrate the good times you’ve had by firing up the grill for a “final run of the season” this Labor Day. Make the menu veggie-friendly with hearty grilled eggplant, dipped in olive oil and sprinkled with spicy chili powder and exotic cumin. Thick-cut rounds are perfect piled on a bun as a burger alternative, or serve them along with your favorite barbecue sides for a healthier holiday meal.
Does anything signify summer more than a holiday barbecue? Fourth of July is the perfect occasion to fire up the grill and savor the succulent delights of an old-fashioned barbecue with family and friends. Now you could do the traditional hamburgers, hot dogs on white buns, potato chips and roasted marshmallows spread….But the fact that you’re reading this shows that you’re seeking healthy choices! And that’s just what we’re offering here with this fabulously flavored feast for your Fourth of July barbecue:
Turn about is fair play, and if you give your husband yet another tie for Father’s Day I can’t prevent him from giving you another slow cooker recipe book when your birthday comes around. If you default to the bland gifts of Father’s Days past you will be negating all the hard work we did to explain to the men of the world why they cannot give an iron as a Mother’s Day gift. This year, tell him he’s the best father you’ve ever known with a gift he’ll actually use.
Maybe he’s your grandfather, your brother or a newly retired teacher who transformed your life when you were growing up. Whatever role that lucky man plays in your life, Father’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to show just how much you care. And what better way than a bountiful basket of gifts that enhance his health?
When you ask your wife/mother/partner/Bombshell what she wants for Mother’s Day, there’s a 9 to 1 chance that she says, “Oh, I’m happy just knowing you and the kids are safe, happy, and healthy.”
