Chocolate Brownie Faux-co-roons

Passover is just around the corner, and that always makes me think of macaroons! A few years ago I recreated my favorite macaroon since I wanted a healthier version of a seasonal childhood treat that wasn’t going to cost me an arm and a leg. A reader recently asked me

21DSD Sugar and Sweetener-Free Lactation Cookies

In a previous post, I wrote about my Real Food Pregnancy, which changed dramatically from my first pregnancy in 2006. One of the things that changed most was my desire to be a nutrient-seeker–actively looking to include foods in my daily eating habits that would

The Easiest Thai Curry Ever

I love Thai food! Most Indians I know love Thai food, too. Both are Asian cuisines that use some of the same ingredients (coconut, chilies, cumin, coriander, and garlic, to name a few), although in different combinations with very different results. Both have curries, both

“Faux-co-roons”

Since my mother is Jewish, but certainly not Kosher, I grew up eating several “traditional” Jewish foods. One of my favorites is latkes. Another is macaroons. With Passover approaching, I’m reminded of the Manischewitz chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate chip (my favorite!) macaroons that Mom would

When Life Gives You Lemons…Make Lemon Rice!

Several years ago when we landscaped our backyard, we planted a Meyer lemon tree. At first it was just a small sapling, and it didn’t produce much, if any, fruit for the first couple of years. After that we got a nice haul from the
