Cookbook Countdown: 7 days (1 week!) to go: Cookies

These cookies don't really need an introduction. I've teased you countless times before with them... they're low fat, whole-wheat vegan chocolate chip cookies and perhaps the best low fat chocolate chip cookies on Earth. The only fat in the cookies comes from the chips! Gobble 'em up!

Cookbook Countdown: 8 Days to Go: Pumpkin Bread

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

As I was hurrying to get everything in order before we left for vacation, my MIL baked up a loaf of my pumpkin bread from the cookbook -- something we could take on the plane to nibble on. (Our total travel time was 27 hrs!).

I was busy looking for my long lost snow glove when I caught a wiff of pumpkin bliss wandering into my bedroom. I poked my head out the door and said "Are you baking something?!" 

"Uh huh" she said. At that point I walked into the kitchen and saw it rising perfectly in the oven:

What a peach, my MIL. 

This Pumpkin Bread is totally fat-free and whole wheat...but you'd never know. It's really awesome... and like all things pumpkin, it only gets better with age.  

p.s. tomorrow is the BIG DAY for my cookbook on the Nook and Kindle! Don't forget to download tomorrow or pre-order for instant download at midnight!!

Cookbook Countdown: 9 Days to Go: Frittata

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Shortly after my MIL arrived in St. Maarten, she peeked into our fridge and remarked at how much tofu we have. "Yeah, it's kind of a necessity around here... your son is a glutton for tofu." I explained.

"Well, what do you do with it?" she asked. She told me she'd had it deep fried with peanut sauce at a restaurant, and it was alright, but obviously not very healthy.

"OMG! Tofu is the most universal ingredient ever!" I squealed. "I use it to make so many healthy things!" 

"Like what?" my MIL asked. 

Thats when I realized I was just going to have to make her the Dill Frittata from my cookbook. Although I think Tofu Scramble is perhaps the best starting place for tofu newbies, this frittata isn't a bad place to start either.

I also made these maple-cornbread biscuits to go with it since I like to eat more than just protein at breakfast.

What I really love about this frittata (besides how easy it is to make and how beautiful it presents) is that its the perfect blank canvas for leftovers. You can throw in any thing you have on hand -- even leftover pasta -- and it's divine.  

By the way, I think you can sample this recipe now, using the Amazon "look insides" feature!
