Almond Quinoa Muffins

August 27, 2016

I spent a lot of time this summer cooking from vegan cookbooks. I started with a classic – Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. It has been out for a while, and it’s a compendium of vegan recipes that are truly delicious but also a bit time consuming. I wanted to see which recipes I could make where I genuinely didn’t miss meat, and this cookbook delivers. The  main dish and appetizer recipes…

Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins (Gluten Free)

September 30, 2015

I have my friend Ryan to thank for this recipe for gluten free banana nut muffins. She made these in little tiny muffin tins and dropped some off at my office a week or so ago, and they were so good I had to make them myself.  The original recipe is from this blog, and I’ve only altered them slightly in the recipe below. I was just waiting for some bananas to get a little too ripe. These are great…

Chocolate Chip Energy Bars

September 16, 2015

Hoping to make the back-to-school transition easier, I got a cookbook that helps you plan school lunches for the week for your child. The cookbook, More Real Lunches Real Easy, from the food blog 100 Days of Real Food, has a lot of great ideas in it, and I’m trying to follow the six week lunch plan, with varying degrees of success. I will write more about that after I make it through the six weeks. Many of the recipes…

Blueberry Applesauce Coffee Cake

September 4, 2015

Blueberries are still abundant in the supermarkets, so why not make this coffee cake for the Labor Day weekend and pretend like summer isn’t over yet? It’s great for breakfast or brunch, or any time of day, really. This coffee cake gets some of its sweetness from applesauce, but the streusel topping is still sugary and decadent while still being a lot better for you than the muffins at your local coffee shop.

Grandma’s Waffles

August 17, 2015

Homemade waffles are so much better than the frozen kind, and this recipe has been a favorite of everyone who tries it. This is my grandmother’s recipe for waffles, which has been a staple in our family for years. My mother still uses my grandmother’s old waffle iron, which is, believe it or not, at least a hundred years old. I got a Salton waffle iron for free as a promotion with a George Foreman grill many years ago, and…

Easy Granola

August 3, 2015

Happy August! Let’s start the month with easy homemade granola, a wonderful and filling breakfast food. It is usually made with a base of fiber-rich oats, nuts and dried fruit. However, if you’re buying granola at the supermarket, don’t be fooled by the fact that the cereal boxes have words like “farms” and “nature” on them. Even store-bought “organic” granola is still not very healthy in terms of its ingredients, and in fact, often has about four different kinds of…
