Sweet Treats For The Jewish New Year

I love the harvest that autumn brings to us. It's an invigorating time of renewal and bounty in nature and with Rosh Hashanah on our heels, it's a time for setting intentions for a sweet, bountiful year. My whole family including the gluttons for gluten look forward to eating my gluten free adaptations. I hope to make your year a little sweeter with a couple of fresh ideas for those baskets of harvested apples.

How To Make Matbucha, The Juicy Salad

This dip-dish of tomatoes and roasted bell peppers seasoned with garlic, is traditionally served cold alongside other Israeli appetizers, and is actually considered a salad. Although I would use that term very loosely, as the finished dish is more of a salsa, and warm pieces of bread or pita are the ideal vessel for transferring the ruby substance to the mouth. It's long cooking time allows the juices to cook way down, offering up a rich, almost sticky, sweet finish.

The True Taste Of Truffles

My search for authentic truffle recipes, not found on the Internet nor in cookbooks, brings me to some inspiring places. Here, in the heartland of truffle culture, in the Central Apennines, I knew I would find something special because this is the only place where truffles can be eaten fresh all year round.

Recipe: Mean Green Soup

Anyway, I recently had the opportunity to feed a group of yogis visiting from Brooklyn, NY. They were a fascinatingly fabulous bunch, and I am not too humble to say that I think I turned a few of them vegetarian (loving, anyway) while they were here. At lunch one day, I decided to toss this green-bomb their way, to great reviews.

How to Make Easy Kimchi

I was at my usual organic grocer, owned by a Korean family. I mentioned needing daikon for my kimchi and the women at the checkout were all excited that I was going to attempt this. I asked what their best tips were. They both giggled and told me their best tip was to buy some already made.

How to Make Grain-Free Almond Bread

This was one of the first ever recipes I created for my blog, and it has since gone through numerous variations. I have been loving this bread with pretty much everything on it. It is great topped with a simple bruschetta mix with chopped heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, some minced garlic, olive oil and sea salt.

One Meal, Three Ways: Sweet Potato Ravioli With Sage Brown Butter

I am on the "meatless Monday" bandwagon, so when it comes to finding delicious vegetarian meals I am always on the lookout. I love the simple elegance of a brown butter sauce and so do my kids! Kids love noodles and butter, well so do I when the pasta is good and the butter has been browned! I use wonton wrappers in place of homemade pasta, making this dish not only delicious but super fast!

The Perfect Post-Holidays Treat: Dark Chocolate Gingerbread Kettle Corn

I've always loved kettle corn: popcorn with the perfect combination of salty and sweet! Popcorn, after all, is a whole grain -- and though it gets a bad reputation at the movie theaters, homemade popcorn can be a light, healthy and delicious snack that satisfies those munchies. I decided to add a holiday twist to this batch of kettle corn by sprinkling it with a combination of spices that give it a nice warm gingerbread taste. You can also add other ingredients like a drizzle of chocolate, dried fruit, and shredded coconut.

I think that "bliss" is a very appropriate word to describe these treats, as they're chocolatey, fudgy, and full of wholesome ingredients. So wholesome, even, that not only are they considered a treat, but they're the perfect on-the-go snack -- whether you need an energy boost for a workout, or something to get you through those exhausting holiday shopping days.
