We can’t seem to stop admiring the great spring vegetable that is the asparagus! Its crisp and light flavors scream spring and with of their nutritional benefits, we can’t help but feature them yet again in this quick dinner solution for your Meatless Monday.

Although the quiche has been traditionally associated with French cuisine, it actually originated in Germany. The original quiche, the quiche lorraine, was an open pie that had egg and cream custard with bits of bacon. Over time, it has developed into a delicacy that has been widely adapted. Many variants of the quiche have incorporated different vegetables, and this mushroom and asparagus quiche is a perfect example.

The warmth and earthiness of the mushrooms give an extra hint of comfort to this dish. Feel free to use your favorite mushrooms in this recipe. The use of the dinner roll dough ensures this quiche a quick option for your Monday night dinner search.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

By Madeleine Ignon | April 13, 2012

Maybe I am slow to catch on, but my new favorite baking ingredient is almond meal, also known as almond flour. I don’t have a gluten allergy, but I love baking with it as an alternative to flour because then everyone can afford to indulge in a sweet treat.

I find that baking with almond flour yields lighter results, and adds a bit of protein and texture to boot. This recipe is a take on the classic, but made a little healthier. Obviously, glass of cold milk required.

Almond Butter Date Bread Recipe

By Madeleine Ignon | March 12, 2012

almond butter bread

One of my more satisfying morning rituals is baking a loaf of some kind of quick bread. I love bread, and I love to make it, but sometimes the labor and wait time involved in making real yeast bread requires too much patience and too many steps. This is one that I found when searching for things I could make with fresh almond butter. It’s a great way to get a healthy (gluten-free) bread fix in a matter of 40 minutes.

Raspberry Jam Torte Recipe

This recipe was inspired by a conversation I had yesterday evening about linzertorte, a Austrian dessert made with red currant jam and some sort of ground nut, usually almonds. In a fit of ambition, my friend and I decided to make one, but then realized, too late on a Sunday, that we didn’t have many of the ingredients required to stay true to a traditional recipe. So, with what we did have-almond meal, raspberry jam, and coconut flour-we made this. It was delicious the night of over vanilla ice cream, but it was even better the next day since it had more time to set in the fridge. The combination of coconut, almond, and raspberry turned out to be exactly what we were craving! Read More

Glazed Apple Muffins Recipe

I was tempted to give these muffins a ridiculously long winded name, as Glazed Apple Muffins doesn’t really cut it. Containing a multitude of random ingredients (my attempt at balancing the bad with good) these muffins are, shall we say, interesting?

With not one overriding flavor (even with chunks of delicious apple), they’re an incredibly satisfying snack that remain moist for days when stored in an airtight container Read More

Oats are my not-so-new obsession. I love them in smoothies, I swoon over overnight oats, and granola just plain makes me happy. Could this most basic of ingredients get any better? I mean, what can’t they do?

They also happen to taste pretty fantastic and they really do set you up for the day without making you feel sluggish or allowing the hunger monster to attack any sooner than lunch.

I’ve named these oatjacks because they’re similar to but not quite of the flap (jack) variety and they are comprised of oats. Read More
