Chickpea of the Sea Salad

This delicious salad is a dead ringer for tuna salad, but has no tuna (or other animal products) in sight! Spread on hearty, toasted bread with crisp romaine leaves for a yummy sandwich, or place a dollop on a green salad. This is also a nice dip for crackers or vegetable spears. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Classic Roasted Chestnuts

Even if you didn’t grow up eating roasted chestnuts, there’s something very nostalgic about them that makes them a perfect treat during the holidays.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

So much more than the sum of their parts! The shredded coconut in these cookies makes them slightly reminiscent of macaroons, the oats make them hearty, and the chocolate bits deliver dark, intense richness. And they're made without eggs, butter or flour. 

Dirt Cake

Yum yum! Of course this kid-friendly dessert is not made from dirt, but it sure looks like it, complete with candy worms on top!

Gingerbread Cake Cookies

These are a cakey version of gingerbread cookies; soft with molasses, warm spices, and a crunchy layer of sparkling sugar.

Gluten-free Macaroni and Cheese

This is not a fancy or refined macaroni and cheese; this is mac and cheese straight from childhood, just yummy and cheesy!

Macaroni and Cheese

This is the easiest home-made macaroni and cheese you'll ever make - just one pot, no baking, and no sauce-making!

Satsuma Sorbet

Whoever said icy treats should only be savored in the peak of summer? Satsumas shine in mid-winter. Here's a special way to enjoy them.

Stone Fruit Bars

This is a versatile dessert: use your favorite combination of stone fruit, like peaches and cherries, or apricots and nectarines. 

Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is an excellent way to start the day. This recipe also makes incredible popsicles! Double or triple the recipe, pour into molds, and freeze.

Ultimate Hot Chocolate

Velvety-smooth and intensely chocolatey, this hot chocolate will make you swear off mixes. The blending might seem unneccesary, but be sure to follow this step to achieve the perfect, smooth texture.
