These delicious Asian-style spare ribs are slowly cooked in a slow oven, lovingly basted with an Asian-style marinade, until they reach tender, caramelized, sticky perfection. Click for the recipe

Coconut Breakfast Bars

These delicious no-bake breakfast bars are made with coconut oil, almond butter, and shredded coconut. The chocolate is optional, and delicious. I don’t sweeten these bars at all, but they are naturally and mildly sweet from the coconut and the almond butter, making them very appropriate for breakfast. Click for the recipe

Asian Meatballs

I love the flavor of these Asian meatballs. The meatballs themselves are delicious. The Asian-style glaze is delightful – sticky, just a little sweet, and very flavorful. Serve these Asian meatballs over rice, cauliflower rice, or spaghetti squash. Click for the recipe

Spaghetti Squash Recipe

You need to make this spaghetti squash recipe NOW. Buttery, cheesy and garlicky, it’s so good, and so close to the experience of eating real buttered noodles, that it’s now my favorite way to make spaghetti squash. Click for the recipe

Chocolate Banana Pudding

This chocolate banana pudding was a happy accident. I wasn’t planning on making pudding – I wanted to make the chocolate version of my one-ingredient banana ice cream, but the bananas were only partially frozen, and I ended up with a delicious, creamy pudding. Since then, I tried making this pudding without freezing the bananas, but the texture is not as good – it’s heavier and more watery. So I do recommend partially freezing the bananas for this recipe.

Oxtail Stew

Oxtail (literally,the tail of an ox cut into pieces) is rich in glucosamine, glycine, marrow and collagen. These nutrients help form bone cells, connective tissue and collagen, which makes oxtail stew a great choice for joint and bone health.

Oxtail meat is tough and bony, but slow cooking it allows the meat to become very tender and the fat to soften and melt. I get oxtail at my local Whole Foods, it’s readily available in the meat department. It’s also available online. If you like slow-cooked, rich and aromatic beef stews, I think you will love oxtail stew. Click for the recipe

Stuffed Mini Peppers

The idea for these stuffed mini peppers was born when I served my family jalapeño poppers. The poppers were delicious, but they were very spicy, and two of us had a hard time dealing with the heat. So I decided to make the exact same dish, using mild mini bell peppers. We loved these stuffed mini peppers! I mean, what’s not to like? The peppers themselves are delicious when baked, and the melted cheddar/crisp bacon combination is incredible. Click for the recipe
