This cake is sweet but not cloyingly so. It’s great as a dessert, as a decadent breakfast or as an afternoon snack when your blood sugar is a little low.
This could also be made as one large nine-inch tart, but I like it better in single serving size.
This is a slightly sweet chili that fills you up without completely weighing you down. A lime margarita or just lime juice with mint would go nicely with it to break through the heat.

I like to make these pancakes small – maybe 2″ in diameter; they’re more like a snacking cake than something you pile up on your plate and sit down to eat. You can eat them spread with maple butter, creamed honey or just butter. Even by themselves they’re delicious!

I am always on the look-out for finger foods for parties and dinners. I love the idea of a meal that consists solely of appetizers. These would be great with a Thai themed meal, with spring rolls and tiny bowls of noodles and maybe some fish cakes.
The pairing of salty warmed goat cheese, savory roasted garlic, slightly sweet and slightly tangy cranberry chutney and sweet caramelized onions together just makes every bite stand up and stand out.
These crispy little beauties are easy to prepare and really delicious to munch on. So much better than just potato chips, more interesting than deep-fried fish and far superior to onion rings they make great appetizers, finger foods, side dishes… you name it!

While this might be called “vegetarian” it certainly doesn’t have to be. It would also be great with warm or cold cooked chicken… or! MMmmmmm… with medium-rare, thinly sliced beef strips. Yum.
