Chocolate Almond Cookies

My dear friends Andres and Nancy discovered these cookies at Wanda's Pie in the Sky, a bakery in Toronto. Wanda has generously granted us permission to share her recipe. These little morsels are loaded with chocolate and finely ground almonds, giving them the texture and flavor of chocolate marzipan. Gluten-free!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I've always loved Brussels sprouts, even when I was a kid!  If you don't like them, chances are you've had them boiled or steamed to death. Roasting browns them beautifully and brings out the nutty sweetness of Brussels sprouts.  It's an easy, elegant, and family-friendly way to serve this nutritious food. 
For a great variation, try the Pan-toasted Brussels Sprouts from "Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's"

People spell it hummos, hummus, hommous, or hommos. All of them are correct since it's an English spelling of the Arabic word for "chickpea."  No matter how you spell it, hummos is a delicious and healthy chickpea dip/spread that is so easy to make. Hummos is typically made of mashed chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans or ceci beans) flavored with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and tahini.

If you shop at Trader Joe's, you most likely know about their ready-made refrigerated (pizza) doughs.  This beautiful yet rustic focaccia is topped with caramelized onions and hearty crimini mushrooms (they're baby portabellas—did you know?)  The criminis are available in bags, already cleaned and sliced—easy!

A mango lassi is basically a smoothie made with primarily yogurt and mango. We added a little orange juice and agave nectar to kick up the tart and sweet flavors. The flaxseed oil is optional if you want to add some healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids to your morning.

All Mixed Up Margaritas

Put away that boring artificially-flavored and strangely colored mix that you picked up at the store. Get yourself a pile of fresh limes, some interesting juices (we favor the ones from Trader Joe's), and some very good tequila (bad tequila makes a bad margarita).  Too much salt often overrides the flavor and aromatic qualities of a good Margarita, so most bartenders and hard-core connoisseurs will skip it.
