Nut flour cakes are often dense and heavy, but this almond flour cake is light and fluffy. It’s delicious, and why wouldn’t it be, with all that nutty goodness and honey sweetness. Despite containing just 1/2 cup honey, this almond flour cake is delightfully sweet, yet it’s healthy enough to serve as breakfast… at least occasionally. Click for the recipe
Creamy, hearty and nourishing, butternut squash soup is one of my favorite soups. In this version, Parmesan cheese adds texture and flavor, while a touch of cream adds silkiness and enhances the soup’s delicate flavor. Click for the recipe
Based on my gluten free cranberry cake, these tasty cranberry muffins offer the same delightful experience of a sweet, moist crumb and soft, tart cranberries in every bite. Plus, it’s easier to serve these for breakfast – they are called “muffins,” after all. Click for the recipe
Hanukkah is almost here, and just as I do every year, I like to experiment with different types of latkes. These carrot latkes are delicious – the combination of carrots, garlic and olive oil is very good.

Airy, delicate and just barely sweet, this butternut squash souffle is a wonderful fall/winter side dish.
Since I’m too lazy to separate the eggs, whip the egg whites and fold them into the mixture, this butternut squash souffle doesn’t puff up a lot in the oven, but on the flip side, it also doesn’t deflate when you take it out of the oven. Leftovers keep well in the fridge for several days – gently heat in the microwave prior to serving. Click for the recipe
