Pumpkin Sherbet All the flavors you love about pumpkin pie, only frozen! It may be October, but we've been having some hot weather the past few days here in New York. I'm not quite ready to put my ice cream maker away just yet. I recently tried the pumpkin ice cream from Trader Joe's and it was so delightful I wanted to see if I could recreate it, without all the fat.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs If I ask my kids what they want for dinner, there's a ninety percent chance they will say pizza. They love it, as most kids do. I guess I have an affection for it too, but we don't indulge too often. If I had to choose a favorite pizza, it would be the Hawaiian, but no one else in my household appreciates its flavors like I do, too bad for them. So when my kids came home from school and I had this afternoon snack waiting for them, they were pretty excited to be having pizza at 3 PM. Okay, so was I, can you blame me?
red lentil coconut soup We finally got some snow here in Portland although it only lasted a few hours it was truly beautiful for a short while. Growing up in California I’ve spent very little time in the snow and I’m always struck by how still and silent the world seems when it is blanketed in white. While I was sloshing through all the slush left over from our little storm I started dreaming about a nice warm comforting bowl of soup. Since I’ve been trying to avoid meat, dairy, gluten and sugar I had to think about my usual bowl of soup a little differently.

Salted Caramel Apple Pound Cake (And a Giveaway!) When life gives you left-over Salted Caramel Sauce, I say make pound cake! With fall teasing us in the Dallas area, the temperatures are fluctuating between 100 and 80, I find myself feeling very domestic. The cooler weather puts me in the mood to putter around the house organizing books, clearing out closets, and whipping up cozy treats in the kitchen. Usually during this time of year I would be baking fall fruit pies, as the cooler weather seems perfect for pie, but this year I have had my fill of pie. With all the cookbook frenzy behind me I have turned my attention to cakes.
Quinoa & Roasted Chickpeas w Eggplant, Mushrooms + Za’atar This one-skillet meal comes together quickly for your weeknight. Za’tar is a Middle Eastern spice and herb mixture made with sesame seeds, sumac, salt and other herbs. You can find it in specialty international markets or you can simply make on your own. I was inspired by a large bag I found at PHOENICIA market here in Houston. I like to top this dish with a creamy tahini dressing. A flavorful hearty, yet perfectly elegant dinner. Avocado Spagetti This is my favourite sort of recipe. Simple, speedy & delicious. This pasta sauce tastes so deliciously creamy, you’ll swear it was whipped up by a butter & cream wielding Frenchman… when in fact, it’s just bursting with goodness. Avocados, or ‘Aligator Pears’ as some people (myself included) like to call them, are somewhat of a superhero in the nutrient department.
Two Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake This, friends, is where procrastination gets me. I was staring at the computer, mired in writers’ block. I clicked on that Stumble button I installed in my toolbar but never use. Oh look! A new webpage has popped up!
