From the kitchen of Patricia Golshani

A family favorite. Make up to 24 hours ahead of time.

Pasta, Rice & Grains > Butternut Squash Gnocchi

From the kitchen of Sunset Magazine 10/08 Issue

These little dumplings are ever so slightly sweet.

Cakes > Peanut Butter CupCakes

From the kitchen of Amber

Good source of fiber, protein and healthy fats. I know-just what you want to hear when you’re thinking ‘cupcakes’. But I swear, they really taste good!

Soups & Stews > Corn Chowder

From the kitchen of Word of mouth

The soup which prompted Bop-Bop to have thirds.

Soups & Stews > Chicken Stew With Fennel & Saffron

From the kitchen of Mephit

A savory stew that can be served over brown rice, pasta, or just by itself. Its really more of a cacciatore than a stew.

Beverages > Balboa’s World famous Margaritas

From the kitchen of Balboa's Restaurant, Puerto Penasco, Mexico

The best-tasting Margaritas, hands down. After a pitcher of these, you’ll be able to sing like Jimmy Buffet—or at least you think you can!

Poultry > Panaeng Chicken (or beef) in red curry peanut sauce

From the kitchen of Quick and Easy Thai (liberal interpretation)

The original recipie is for beef; we have also sustituted chicken with equally delicious results.

Cakes > Ultimate Carrot Cake For Chloe

From the kitchen of Vegetarian Times and Amber, Frosting from The Vegan Chef and Amber

I have an inability to follow a recipe as directed; I always adjust to my needs. In this case, a cake for Chloe’s birthday. Requirements: Wheat free, dairy free, no refined sugar and deeee-licious. Mission accomplished.

Poultry > Jujeh Kabab

From the kitchen of New Food of Life by Najmieh Batmanglij

Very succlent, very easy marianade for chicken. We skewered it and grilled it, though you could easy bake or pan fry in its juices.

Breads > Corn Bread

From the kitchen of Amber

Salty, sweet and oh so good.

Great with chili on a cold winters day.

Vegetables > Kale, Carmelized Onions and Sour Cherries

From the kitchen of Mollie Katzen

Kale is my favorite veggie. This recipe is great-its tangy, savory and a little sweet.

I used dried cherries, that I soaked in hot water for about 10 minutes. I also used less sugar, about one teaspoon. Oh and I used extra virgin olive oil which is a MUCH healthier choice than canola.

Vegetables > Kale Crunch

From the kitchen of Mollie Katzen (

A variation I havent tried yet but you can bet I will!

Vegetables > Kale Crisp

From the kitchen of some where

A crispy snack that is oh so good for you! Kale is virtually loaded with calcium, potassium, indoles (cancer-fighting substances), beta-carotenes, and other antioxidants (including ones that prevent blindness, macular degeneration and improve eyesight!)

Beverages > Sbiten

From the kitchen of AARP

I may not be retired but I sure do enjoy this spicy Russian winter warmer drink.

Other recipies I saw used less honey, more wine, a variety of spices including cardamom pods and ground ginger.

Cookies > Chocolate Orange Cookies

From the kitchen of Pamela Anderson from "Cookies: Food Writers Favorites"

No, not that Pam Anderson. Anyway, these are delicious. I used half butter and half coconut oil which gave them great coconut undertones. They look kinda plain so you can drizzle a little melted white chocolate on top if you are going for aesthetic appeal.

Pies > Green tomato Mincemeat filling

From the kitchen of ?

Sweet, spicy, juicy, a touch tart. Use 4 cups in a whole wheat pie crust for a delicious treat. This will debut at Thanksgiving 2005. Cant wait!

Pasta, Rice & Grains > Green tomato and sausage pasta

From the kitchen of ?

A great way to use up all those green tomatoes!

Breads > Butternut Bread

From the kitchen of ?

Sublty spicy. The ultimate comfort bread.

Soups & Stews > Pumpkin Baked Black Bean Chili with Chocolate

From the kitchen of Whole Foods a la Amber

Ok, I have a chocolate addiction, I have to add it to everything. You can leave it out of this spicy chili or try it for something different. It turns out similiar to a mexican mole’ (not the animal).

Cookies > Chocolate Walnut Tarts

From the kitchen of Whole foods with an Amber twist

Relatively healthy, as far as cookies go.

Meat > Kabab Koobideh

From the kitchen of Amber

A delicious ground beef kabab. Traditionally the meat is put on flat metal skewers and cooked over a open grill. I omit the skewers all together and use the oven. Much easier.

Salads & Dressings > “Potato” Salad (with cauliflower)

From the kitchen of Amber

A healthy alternative to traditional potato salad. High in Vitamin C, antioxidants and cancer fighters! Plus it tastes great! My grandfather didnt know the difference!

Ingredients are approxiamate.

This tasty dish can be filled with meat, mushrooms, etc., or can be cut into strips, rolled in granulated sugar and served with fresh berries, or my favorite, served slathered in butter salt and pepper.

These moist cookies with a hint of spicy ginger taste great! You would never guess that could almost be considered good for you.

These Cornish game hens are bursting with sweet heat! The flavor and heat from six spices are balanced by the sweetness of maple syrup.
