Better-for-You Granola

Recipe by Stacey Viera

Better-for-You Granola

Tu b’Shevat is a celebration of the trees and a time to feast on dried fruits, nuts and the seven species of the land of Israel. Serve this spread at your seder (or brunch) and knock off two of the seven in one dish (pomegranates and olives). Dirtying only one dish, you can even make

Recipe by Deb Perelman

Chocolate Pecan Slab Pie

Considering how annoyed I get about fairly inconsequential stuff, such as decorative paper straws (mmm, wet paper fibers), single giant ice cubes in cocktails (that thwack you in the face when you take a sip), or a single granule of playground sandbox matter in my bed (always the bed; always the bed!), I am sure

Granola Biscotti

Recipe by Deb Perelman

Granola Biscotti

There are a lot of good reasons to make and eat the finger-shaped twice-baked dunkable cookies known as biscotti, cantuccini and sometimes even mandelbrodt, and most involve delicious things to drink: coffee, black tea, and vin santo and other dessert wines.
