Pumpkin Cupcakes With Cream-Cheese Frosting

These cupcakes are great for fall brunches or as a treat to go along with coffee. Best of all, pumpkin is a power food, rich in vitamins A and C, potassium, fiber and manganese. Also, the cake (not frosting) can easily be made vegan by substituting almond milk for the buttermilk. The cream cheese frosting recipe is adapted from Eater’s Choice Low-Fat Cookbook by Ron Goor (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1999).

Orange Cardamom Cupcakes With Orange Yogurt Icing

When I first came across this recipe, I could not believe that these ingredients could create a cake-like consistency. I was wrong. The cake is fluffy and light, and I cannot wait to try it with other citrus fruits. In this recipe, oranges provide vitamin C and antioxidants. Each egg provides approximately 5.5 grams of protein, adding substance to the cake. Lastly, almonds are high in vitamin E and magnesium, acting to lower cholesterol. This cupcake is gluten-free and adapted from one by New York Times food writer Martha Rose Shulman. The oranges can be prepared the day before and refrigerated overnight.

Stuffed Chile Rellenos

More than just your regular chile rellano ~ stuffed also with onion tomato and zucchini! Delish!

Potato Dill Sauce - makes 3 cups/ 9 servings

Broccoli, chard, brussel sprouts and the like take very kindly to the sauce

Khoshaf bil Mishmish (Macerated Apricots and Nuts)

This simple, fragrant dessert (pronounced kho-SHAF beel mish-Mish), with macerated--rather than cooked--dried fruit, is a Syrian speciality of the Muslim month Ramadan, when it's eaten to break the daily fast. Rose water is the distilled essence of rose petals, a distinguishing flavor of Middle Eastern puddings and pastries (as is orange blossom water).

Roasted Veggies, Caramelized UR2

Delightful veggies tossed in a slight bit of olive oil, roasted till almost caramelized in the oven. Use fresh herbs if poss.

Peanut butter cup, vegan

I miss eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Now I make this healthier version and they are way better. In fact, I think they are the most ridiculously delicious things in the entire world. Look for graham crackers that are naturally sweetened or low in sugar (Health Valley makes a good one).
