The health food store near me has this thick, sweet, brownies that use date paste as part of the whole deal. I tried it and voila - a beautiful brownie with pure gourmet taste and pedigree but with a health food store sensibility. These are dense, sweet and fudgy and best served cold. For goodness sakes, please don't tell your kids these have flax seed and are butter-free or otherwise healthy. The dates are mellow and sweet and being dark in color, they amplify the chocolate bouquet. These are more cake brownies than chewy but they are so dense and dark and served very well chilled, they are almost fudge.
Usually we think of apples when we think of an old-fashioned crisp but ripe, sweet autumn pears are wondrous in this dish. Just use rip flavorful pears such as Bosc or Anjou or a combination of a few pear varieties. A touch of cranberries brings some added to colour and a light touch of spice makes this a portrait in sensuous fall flavors.
This dreamy, ambrosial apple sauce wil never make it from the pot to the dessert dish. Forget about leftovers! It is outstanding on its own, or atop chesecake, yogurt and granola, or with vanilla ice-cream. The combination of apples, vanilla and a few other goodies makes this a new classic.
I fell in love with www.Terrachips over the holidays. These are fried, thin chips of sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, yaro and beets. It’s easy to make your own at home but slow baked, not fried. Much less fat.Tossed with some sea salt and vegetable oil, they are addictive.

These are ‘spa’ cookies because they are healthy, lower-fat, appetite zapping, good carbs. They are even on my diet because one of these cookies negates 500 extra nibble calories I would have had without one of these gems. I call them O List because it is the sort of cookie I would love to see in Oprah magazine but so far, no bites. Make these with an Omega rich egg for added heart healthy nutrition.
