Mornings are always hectic in my house and breakfast isn’t necessarily a sit-down affair for me (though I wish it were!). And I’m usually trying to fit in a workout …
This creamy dessert is fancy enough for a dinner party, but easy enough to make on a weeknight because there is no cooking required! You can make this gluten-free by using GF graham crackers or pie crust.

It’s here friends–the holiday season! I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is next week. We still have some Halloween decorations around. I better get to work!
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.
It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrate with this Chocolate Stout Bread!
I hope you’re all wrapping up work and starting your holiday celebrations. With Chanukah so early this year, it feels like we already did the holidays, yet Christmas is just three days away. I didn’t really grow up celebrating Christmas per se, but it’s my sister’s birthday and my mom grew up with the tradition in Germany, so I like to celebrate with traditional foods and make the house feel festive. One way I carry on my mom’s traditions is by making her rum balls.
The Jewish holiday of Purim is coming up on March 23rd. It’s a fun celebration that usually entails kids getting dressed up as characters from the story of Haman. He’s the bad guy in the story and whenever you hear his name during a reading of the story, you’re supposed to use a noisemaker. It’s lots of fun for kids! My favorite part of the holiday is making and eating Hamantaschen. They are triangular cookies that are made to look like Haman’s 3-pointed hat.
Looking for something pretty and springy to serve for your St. Patrick’s Day, Easter or Passover celebration? My Matcha Panna Cotta from Eating in Color (page 146) is the total package. It has a gorgeous pastel green color with a nice reddish-pink contrast from the raspberry-chia pudding on the bottom.
Chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate feel-good treat. And you’ll feel even better about these because they’re made with high-fiber dates and oats and chocolate chunks.
