So pretty, so healthy, so EASY!! The almond pulp adds protein and really amps up the yum factor. You could substitute any other fresh or frozen fruits you like but this version comes out a beautiful sweetheart pink. It was almost a shame to drink it! (I said almost…)

What better way to usher in the official day-after-the-last-day-of-summer than with some rich, homestyle skillet fried pork chops. Be sure to give the cast iron skillet plenty of time to heat and dredge the chops in plenty of flour, salt & pepper. The smell and the sound when they hit the skillet can’t be beat. Mmmmmm!

Ok, I realize it is not cold outside. I KNOW, it’s still summer! I am with you on this, trust me. But I was suddenly struck with a craving for hot chocolate and I was not about to wait for the dreaded winter that I still refuse to believe is just around the corner. This stuff is rich, creamy and chock full of antioxidants. You won’t even miss the dairy.

Being perfectionists (ok, some of us) and nerds (yep, all of us!), this seemingly simple recipe became both an obsession and a frustration. but after many tweaks and tries, I think we have it down to a science! This can easily be made gluten free by subbing out the muffins.

Laden with succulent shrimp and creamy cheese, these enchiladas will satisfy your craving for richness and spice. And the loads of fresh vegetables and tangy lime keep the dish from being heavy. Pair with a crisp Pinot Grigio for a perfect late summer dish.

Crisp, satisfying and not too sweet, this granola is an excellent use for leftover almond (or other nut) pulp. The addition of oats and coconut give it substance and balance the chocolate and cherry flavors nicely. This granola smells amazing as it bakes and works especially well over yogurt, as well as over oatmeal or just eaten out of hand as a snack.

Trust me your coffee will love this. I am not a milk drinker, but I love this milk. Sarah IS a milk drinker (she lives on the stuff) and SHE loves it. You will love it too… Try it once and you’ll never go back to half and half again!

Rich and silky, this was the perfect egg casserole for our recent Girls’ Brunch. The cheese is decadent, but sauce is what makes it a strata. It is definitely worth the extra effort. This dish easily adapts to other fillings and cheeses and can be made to suit a variety of tastes.

With a spicy and substantial filling, balanced by fresh veggies and rich cashew sour cream, these wraps can be filled with any combination of toppings you like. I refrain from referring the the lentil-walnut filling as ‘meat’. These wraps don’t need to pretend to have meat to be inviting, they are amazing in their own right! Skip the cheese to keep them vegan and lactose free.

Rich and light, with a moist crumb and a hint of coconut, these brownies are an awesome way to use the leftover almond pulp that is quickly piling up in the freezer (if your freezer is anything like mine). I used 100% cacao cocoa power which makes an intensely dark brownie with a rich chocolate flavor. You will want to hide them!
Spicy and rich, this is the ultimate in meat-free comfort food. In fact, this dish was so tasty and filling that Dave didn’t even want any of the leftover grilled chicken breast that I offered to appease my ‘meatitarian’. Don’t skip the Harissa paste, it really makes the dish an explosion of flavor!

Spaghetti without the spaghetti! A quick and light way to serve the zucchini that is in abundance right now. The sauce is bright and fresh and pairs well with the zucchini “pasta”.
- August 3, 2014Have you noticed how of many my recipes involve blueberries?? Well the search is over for the ultimate blueberry breakfast thing! These are it Light, flaky and melt-in-your-mouth tender. They are also smaller than a typical coffeehouse scone (and way less dry!) so they’re not overwhelming as a mid-morning snack.
- July 31, 2014Comfort food at it’s finest. Updated from the old standard by adding red bell pepper for color and flavor and some extra-sharp pinconning for bite. Mmmmmmm!
