apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious...

best brownies

Last Saturday I treated myself to the “chocolate brownie a-la-mode” pedicure at Spa in the Valley. It was divine! However, as a result, I was seriously jonse-ing for a real brownie when I got home, but I had no brownie mix in the house. And after this recipe, I don’t know that I will ever buy box brownies again!

chocolava cookies

In my quest to try new recipes, I admit I was skeptical about this one. I found it in Prevention, the health magazine. These cookies turned out so yummy, further endorsed by my 83-year old father, that I am now skeptical that they should be considered a ‘diabetic’ cookie. Delish! Soft in the middle and brushed with confectioners’ sugar on the outside, these cookies look so scrumptious it’s hard to believe they’re diabetes-friendly! prep time: 20...
