Quick recipes often become my favorites. They are the ones I revisit most often, the ones that have a tendency to become staples. I’m a believer that just because a recipe comes together quickly, doesn’t mean it's less special or delicious.

Game-changer: I stumbled on new-to-me THIN rice cakes the other day, and have been using them as the perfect, crunchy snack vehicle in the days since. Pictured are a handful of topping ideas.

You want these in your purse, your desk drawer, and your freezer. A quick way to get quinoa, hemp seeds, chia, and coconut into one naturally sweetened, no-bake snack.
An extra special baked oatmeal - banana, coconut, vanilla, coconut milk, and some winter citrus, all baked into fragrant, golden-topped magic.
A nut-free (school-friendly), double chocolate version of one of the most popular cookies on my site. Made with a banana-batter, shredded coconut, dark chocolate chunks, and oats. Butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies make great after school, travel, or post-workout treats.
One-pot meals are the savior of weeknight cooking, and this pasta is a go-to. It's pasta and lentils simmered in crushed tomatoes, finished with lots of chopped kale, saffron, swirls of tahini and chopped almonds.
Imagine guacamole topped with fragrant, Indian-spiced onions and garlic, green chiles, and mustard seeds. It's great with chips, toasted naan, or toasted pita.
