Banana Bread – with or without the baby

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

One of my favorite recipes from Feed the Belly is the Baby on Board Banana Bread. It’s a moist, delicious loaf that’s chock full of delicious ingredients. It also has more fiber and less sugar than most banana bread recipes. Even though I’m no longer pregnant (or planning to get pregnant ever again), I find myself going back to this recipe over and over again. Why? I always seem to have mushy bananas on hand, plus this recipe lends itself to multiple variations. Sometimes I add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips or coconut flakes, and sometimes I use chia seeds instead of the flax. Any way you make it, it’s darn good, and perfect for a rainy day.

Heartbreaker Dark Chocolate Cookies!

In Desserts, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

Yes, I’m a huge Pat Benatar fan. I’m also a big fan of crispy dark chocolate cookies, especially when they’re filled with amazing things like almond butter or ice cream. These shortbread cookies are excellent on their own with a cup of tea or coffee, and even more fun dressed up as sandwich cookies.

Go Green! Asparagus-Kale Quiche

In Main Dishes, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

Spring is beginning to make her presence known here in NYC. We’re not talking sandals and sundresses yet, but at least you can ditch a layer and feel a bit of sun on your back, and at this point, that feels pretty awesome!

Yogurt-Curry Roasted Cauliflower

In Recipes, Sides by Frances Largeman Roth

I had a head of cauliflower in the fridge last weekend and decided I wanted to do something a little different with it. As you probably know, I love turmeric for its anti-inflammatory benefits and bright yellow color, so I decided to included that in the mix. I knew I couldn’t just toss the florets with dry spices because they don’t really coat evenly and you’d end up with a bitter mouthful of turmeric, so my cauliflower definitely needed a nice yogurt coating first.

A Classic Spring Pairing: Strawberry & Rhubarb

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

After many false starts, Spring is finally here! Two of my favorite spring ingredients are rhubarb and strawberries, and of course they’re a classic pairing. Rhubarb is too tart on its own, and strawberries lend the stalks just enough natural sweetness to balance it out in the loveliest way possible.

Summer Reboot! Cantaloupe Coco-Mango Smoothie

In Recipes, Smoothies by Frances Largeman Roth

OK, it finally got hot enough here for me to want to keep my Vitamix on the counter full time. When I have the luxury of going out on an afternoon run, I don’t really like sitting down and eating lunch afterwards (too many things to do!), but I’m down with drinking my lunch. Here’s what I came up with today: The summer version of my Coco-Mango Smoothie from Eating in Color. I’ll call this one Cantaloupe Coco-Mango Smoothie. Remix!
