Superquick Strawberry Jam

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

With three kids, we go through a ton of strawberry jam. Instead of spending $9 for a jar, I make this simple version. It’s wonderful on toast and muffins, and is a welcome addition stirred into oatmeal and yogurt as well.

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.

Tahini-Curry Roasted Cauliflower

In Apps, Snacks & Drinks, Make-ahead, 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.

Stout Bread with Chocolate

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

I’ve been having a love affair lately. No, you don’t need to tell my husband! It’s with beer and don’t worry, it’s in healthy and moderate amounts. I am still a wine lover, but I’m really enjoying the depth and complexity of beer. Plus, there are some cool stores in my Brooklyn neighborhood that let you buy a 6-pack with an assortment of varieties, so I get to try a bunch of new things. And a bottle of beer is much less of an investment than a bottle of wine.
