The truth is, making a cake from scratch isn’t a big deal and doesn’t even take much longer than a cake mix. And brownies? Seriously exactly the same as a mix. The other advantage of making a cake or brownies from scratch, particularly brownies (because they’re always chocolate!), is that you can use cacao powder. That’s like cocoa powder before all the antioxidants are stripped from it. Cacao powder can actually have more antioxidants than blueberries! You know that whole, “But chocolate is good for you…” line we’ve been hearing for a few years. It actually can be true. But no, not a milk chocolate bar. Sorry!

Best Ever Lasagna! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Easy, Healthy. No Fake Cheese!
I made this dish last week for a Succos lunch. One of my guests, a friend’s daughter, is wheat-free and hates vegetables. I was sure this recipe would be my best bet. However, even I was surprised and thrilled when she and my other meat-loving guests couldn’t get enough of it (The vegetarians loved it too!). This lasagna was such a hit, I could have easily made two pans. My friend asked for the recipe so she could make it for her kids. I did teasingly say, “Buy the book.” Of course I was just kidding. I wouldn’t dream of making her – or you – wait!
