Breakfast-in-Bed Apple Cake

This apple cake actually tastes better the next day, so no need to wake up early to have it ready for brunch. My favorite part about this recipe is how adaptable it is. Want to make it healthier? Swap in some whole wheat flour or use some applesauce instead of oil. You can even reduce

Tahini and Almond Cookies

Recipe by Natalie Levin

Tahini and Almond Cookies

Tahini is one of my favorite spreads, and I use it on a daily basis. It’s made entirely of sesame seeds and has a rich, nutty flavor with luscious texture. These are the most addictive cookies ever. They’re so easy to make and are such a great treat with your coffee.

Sizzling Tofu or Tempeh Fajitas

Recipe by Nava Atlas

Sizzling Tofu or Tempeh Fajitas

Meals with a do-it-yourself component are always appealing, both for the cook and those at the table. This festive meal makes very little work for the cook, and everyone can tailor their fajitas to their own tastes. For a bigger meal, serve with a simple side of brown rice or quinoa.
