Oh for the love of cookies! When my kids were younger we used to dedicate a whole pre-holiday afternoon to baking cookies. We’d play some uplifting tunes and spend quality time together in the kitchen and I’d teach them how to precisely measure the flour and crack the eggs, and then I’d let them roll […]

Back in my New York City college days my friends and I used to walk 20 blocks to line up for the most amazing giant carrot muffins. They were way too good and way too bad for you all at the same time. I’ve since given up anything with copious amounts of sugar and any […]

Hummus is a staple in our fridge at home. We use it as a dip, a spread, a dressing, and more. I never buy hummus since it’s so easy to make. Also, since I discovered the effect that good sun-dried tomatoes have on the classic dish, acting as a delightful flavor enhancer, this recipe has […]

Who doesn’t love a good guacamole? In my humble opinion a good guacamole is one the greatest dishes on the planet — a dip, a side, a garnish and, I confess, sometimes even a snack on its own with a spoon! It kills me when a perfectly good avocado is wasted on a mushy tasteless guac. So […]

Sprouted Raw Hummus

I can’t say I always sprout my hummus but when I do have the time it’s a good way to make chickpeas more nutritious and digestible. The consistency and flavor of sprouted hummus feels more real, raw and earthy, and if you’ve never tried sprouting, it’s kind of fun to watch your chickpeas come alive. Serve this with […]
