These pine nut tahini cookies have a delicate, flaky shortbread texture and a sweet sesame flavor.

Have you ever tried halva? It’s a sweet, sesame-based confection that can often be found at local candy shops or Jewish delis. Sometimes I see pre-packaged versions but you really want to find the homemade stuff. It’s rich, dense and wonderful. I love it. And when I first tasted these tahini cookies, halva immediately came to mind.

This Grilled Fairytale Eggplant with Garlic Yogurt Sauce and Pomegranate is an impressive, flavorful, vegetarian appetizer.

Fairytale eggplant is one of those ingredients I like introducing to people who say they don’t like eggplant. Not only are they gorgeous but the skins are completely soft when cooked and there are no seeds. They’re like perfect little eggplant jewels.

Homemade small batch plum butter has no refined sugar and is easy to prepare at home!

This Gluten-Free Four Cheese White Pizza is completely grain free but you'll never know the difference! Easy and delicious.

Earlier this year I created a grain-free paleo pizza crust for the blog and it was surprisingly successful, considering the fact that I’m not known for being a gluten-free/paleo blogger. Even though I don’t follow any specific diet, we make a real effort at home to limit refined sugars and carbohydrates. However, Jeff and I are both completely nuts for pizza. It’s a weakness. This pizza crust is a nice way to indulge periodically without all the guilt.

These Cashew and Roasted Red Pepper Kale Chips are savory, crunchy and bursting with flavor. People will beg you for the recipe! (vegan & gluten-free)

Kale chips are one of those things that people either love or hate. I’m somewhere in the middle because I love them when they’re done right. But I’ve tasted a lot of mediocre to bad kale chips over the years. I promise you- these are some of the best kale chips you’ll ever try. No joke. They’re thick, savory and crunchy. I’m kind of obsessed with them.
