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 (molliekatzen.com)

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.

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.

A nice layer of sugar and cream to top a healthy cake. Yum!!

A very moist, low sugar carrot cake made with whole wheat pastry flour. I made it for Sean’s Birthday and got rave reviews.

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.
