I keep in touch with one of my best friends from high school. Her name is Nikki and she lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and four kids. Four! She's an inspired cook who can throw a meal together on a whim from a refrigerator she keeps packed with all manner of whole, natural foods. She's an enthusiastic supporter of local growers and producers and regularly sends me emails highlighting recent cooking triumphs and trials. A few months back she emailed me her recipe for butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies - I promptly filed it under "can't possibly be good."
This pumpkin soup recipe is so perfect for this time of year that I can't help sharing it with you. That being said, I've got about 15 minutes of battery left on my laptop (with no power source in sight), so this write-up is going to be quick.

This sweet treat is not only chocolate-y good, it's healthy too!! Pistachios, cranberries and dark chocolate are loaded with antioxidants, not to mention fiber, good fats and vitamin C, so here's a sweet treat you won't feel guilty giving out. With the holidays around the corner, if baking is not your thing, making chocolate bark just couldn't be easier. With only three ingredients, the only appliance you need is a microwave to create this.
Avocados are amazing things—they're delicious on their own, but they also have a lot of healthy fats, dietary fibers, and vitamins, and despite their high caloric value, they're remarkably easy to prepare. If you have an avocado that's too firm to use for something else, or you're just in the mood for something new and healthy for breakfast, slice it in half, remove the pit, and carve out a little space in the center. Crack an egg where the pit was, and bake. In a few minutes, you'll have a delicious, protein and vitamin-packed breakfast treat that's rich enough to keep you going all morning. The recipe itself is pretty simple, and comes to us thanks to reddit user fungz0r : preheat oven to 425, have cast iron pan in there Slice avocado in half, take out pit take pan out, put avocado half on, crack egg in put whatever you want on top place in oven and cook till your eggs [are done how you] desire
Saturday, December 2, 2006 Back when I was still getting daily “are you okay?” and “do you need anything” phone calls from my mother each morning after my little rumble with the stairs, she told me one more she’d just made German pancakes for breakfast. “Oh, you remember them, don’t you? I made them once in a while when you were growing up.”
