Grain-Free Chocolate Chip “Blondies”

Courses:  Cuisines:  
This is a delicious and healthy alternative for those people who are on gluten-free and/or grain-free diets. You can whip it up quickly and it bakes in less than a half-hour. While they are not as dense as regular blondies, they are a nice substitute. And, if you don't tell anyone they are "grain-free" or "gluten-free" - they won't notice! An added bonus: since the main ingredient is almond butter, these would make a great post-workout snack! There are many versions of this recipe on all the "grain-free" websites online, but this one seems the simplest.

Betsy Stone’s Carrot Kugel (or Carrot Muffins)

Holidays:  Courses:  Cuisines:  
These taste like the most delicious carrot muffins, but not too sweet. They are a fabulous side dish with a roast beef, or chicken or fish. Kids gobble them up. It can be made in a 9" X 13" pan and cut in squares, or in muffin tins. I love making them in my Nordicware Rose muffin tin, because they just look so beautiful! They also freeze very well.
