Blueberry, Peach and Raspberry Crumble: A Fresh and Simply Delicious Summer-Inspired Dessert.
Here’s to Healthy Snacking!Clearly, I have a sweet tooth. And I love blondies, bars, or anything with a butter-brown sugar-oatmeal base. I really love it when I can create healthier versions of my favorite sweets. These Fig and Walnut Oatmeal Squares are made with whole wheat flour, sweetened with brown sugar and dried figs and spiced with cinnamon and cloves. Adding walnuts to this bar adds fiber, protein and heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. I think you’ll find they are a tasty and satisfying healthy snack!
I am a coffee lover as well as a lover of Nutella as well as a lover of cake. Therefore, Coffee-Nutella Swirl Pound Cake makes me very, very happy. I thought this was a perfect week to share this simple recipe, as here in Sacramento the local speciality coffee community is celebrating their dedication to quality, ethics and dedication in relations to all things coffee during Speciality Coffee Week.
St. Phanurius Cake
In the Orthodox Church, August 27 is dedicated to Saint Phanurius. The Orthodox faithful pray to this Saint to help them recover lost things such as car keys or a child’s favorite toy. Some even pray to this saint to help them find hope, faith or focus. As a thanks-offering the custom arose of baking a cake in his honor. This is my favorite recipe for a Fanouropita Cake, updated by making them into little bundt cakes and topping them with fresh local berries and organic crystallized ginger.
