Pumpkin Biscotti

Pumpkin Biscotti
This recipe for pumpkin biscotti is hands down the best one I’ve made yet.  And I’ve made a lot of biscotti over the years! There is a fine balance between being crispy enough, without being hard to bite, but also tender enough so it doesn’t crumble.  This recipe achieved both goals! What is biscotti? Biscotti originated in Italy, and mean “twice baked.”  They are crisp...

Delicata Squash Mashed Potatoes

Delicata Squash Mashed Potatoes
My love affair with delicata squash continues with this delicata squash mashed potatoes recipe.  So good! The best part about this recipe is that you air fry the delicata squash, and can do this step the day before you make this dish. How do you cook delicata squash in an air fryer?

Pumpkin Crunch Muffins

Pumpkin Crunch Muffins
Every September it’s like Christmas to me because the seasonal granola is out from Safe + Fair!  These pumpkin crunch muffins are the best muffins I’ve ever made. Light, fluffy, tender crumb and the pumpkin crunch on top just seals the deal.

Banana Bread Pancakes

Banana Bread Pancakes
You must put these banana bread pancakes on the top of your list to meal prep this week.  So delicious! For whatever reason lately, once I buy bananas, if I don’t eat any the day I buy them, the next day they are basically ready to use as banana bread.  When my son-in-law lived here, I made so many things with bananas because Hannah wouldn’t...

Safe + Fair has what I like to call their summer flavors for me – Key Lime Pie Granola and Strawberry Shortcake Granola – along with their respective popcorn flavors.  Yum!  The key lime is one of my favorites.  It’s light, bright and not overly sweet. ...

Salt and Pepper Tofu Stir Fry
If you haven’t tried tofu in a while, definitely try my salt and pepper tofu stir fry – quick and delicious! There was a restaurant near my old office called Imperial Lamian, and they had THE BEST salt and pepper tofu as one of their appetizers.  Sadly, they had to close due to the pandemic, but every once in a while I dream about that...

Vegan Tomato Soup Recipe

Vegan Tomato Soup Recipe
The secret to my vegan tomato soup recipe?  Silken Tofu! A couple weeks ago I bought silken tofu for a pancake recipe, and I never ended up making it.  My lunch out yesterday was 24 points, and I thought for sure I’d be over my healthy range for the day on WW.  Nope!  This vegan tomato soup was made mostly in my blender, and other...
