These Soft Olive Oil Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are moist, spiced, & incredibly delicious! Made with olive oil, oats, almond flour, & honey. Although they’re full of good for you ingredients (and naturally gluten-free), these taste nothing like “health biscuits”, as Brian has coined my less desirable treats. A warm blend of nutty oats and honey, studded with the perfect ratio of plump, sweet raisins.
The arugula has a mild, peppery bite, tossed with bright lemon juice and olive oil. And salt! Such an important part for bringing out the true flavors of greens. Plump, Driscoll’s raspberries play with the sweetness of the corn in the polenta, and the creaminess of the goat cheese is satisfying in its own right. I can’t help to think I need to use berries in more savory applications after eating this.

I’m head over heels about these soft and springy raspberry cakelets, also known as financiers. They taste of almonds, vanilla, and caramelized butter, and their golden edges make room for a pocket of fresh Driscoll’s raspberries. I love the ease of being able to make them in a muffin tin! And their small size makes them just right for an afternoon sweet tooth.
I always think about ordering eggs benedict when we’re out for brunch, but truth is I’ve been disappointed too many times to take that chance. So I created this Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, with shaved cucumber, pickled red onions, and creamy avocado sauce. A not-so-rich, fresh take on a classic. Plus a video to show you how!
This Minted Baba Ganoush is very easy to make, roasted in the oven, then blended in a food processor or blender with just a few ingredients. Think of it as hummus, but the eggplant stands in for the chickpeas. With tahini, lime juice, and a few spices, it has a mediterranean feel that goes lovely with pita bread, vegetables, crackers, and even as a sandwich spread.
