This smoothie bowl recipe works for fruit-cravers, fruit-and-vegetable evaders and everyone in between. It’s cold and sweet but also nutty and oaty, and you can stuff in a handful of spinach or kale without changing the taste (although the colour will be less attractive). Frozen raspberries add hits of tartness, and the more toppings, the better.
This is a sort of magic cake. First, because there’s an alchemy that happens between bananas and chocolate when they hang out together and, second, because it never seems to totally freeze and when you have a “hangry” sweet tooth, you can eat it right out of the freezer.
These turnovers taste like mini apple pies wrapped in flaky puff pastry. Unlike pie pastry, puff pastry is surprisingly easy to work with and very forgiving. Even if your unbaked turnovers look pretty wonky, you’ll be amazed by how gorgeous they look coming out of the oven.
Balls of (not overly sweet) challah are rolled in butter, cinnamon sugar, and a very lightly toasted sesame mix before getting packed into a Bundt pan so it develops a deeply sweet caramelized shell as it bakes. Then you sit around the table and pull it apart with your fingers. A solid win.
Traditional grilled cheese gets fancied up a bit with some nigella and sesame seeds and finished with a little honey for some of sweet-salty goodness. But if you wanted to scrap all that and just go for cheese in a pita? No one’s gonna be mad at a grilled cheese.
