with one comment

brownies (1)

With all this running lately, I have been craving anything loaded with protein. I can’t get enough of raw nuts and seeds. So it only made sense to make some brownies with them, right?

Recipe: Gluten Free Dutch Appeltaart with Cardamom

with one comment

I was destined to fall in love with the appeltaart.

When I travel I have a tendency to fall for local foods. It may be the most basic of foods in that location, but when you’re an outsider, it’s exotic. And so I identify a local dish that’s easy to find in a variety of places and I order it wherever I go. It could be called a weird travel quirk, but when you find a local food that you love and you stick with it.

Full disclosure: standard American pancakes have never been my thing. Except for a backcountry version made with M&M’s, they have never been one of my breakfast standards. On the too sweet, too fluffy and too thick side, classic pancakes are optimal if you’re looking for a sugar high with an immediate crash. Not quite my style.

However, once in awhile you come across a version of a recipe that changes your perspective. A good friend named Lisa, who has an ongoing oatmeal vs. pancake breakfast debate in her household, came up with this one. As she says, when someone says “bowl of oatmeal or stack of pancakes?” oatmeal is regularly the winner, so she found a way to combine the two. The result is convincing even for those of us that aren’t usually wooed by the traditional breakfast.

Time is of the essence when I cook; the easier the better. Which is why I am all for recipes that require minimal ingredients and prep time. Enter these peanut butter cookies which are so easy it’s almost stupid.

Recipe: Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

with 2 comments

You could probably eat all of these in one sitting. I came up with these when I was in need of a super simple snack recipe that seemed fancy – which of course is sort of my cooking style in general. The result is easy and in my opinion, better (and healthier) than a bowl of popcorn.
