Didn’t quite finish that bottle of red wine last night? Use it to make chocolate cake! This rich and seductive chocolate cake is fudgy on the inside with a hint of red wine. 

You know how every family or household has “the cake”? Well, this is the cake in my New York City apartment. I have no doubt that if you try this cake once, it will become the cake in your house, too.

I hum, you hum, we all hum for this hummus! Slather some creamy, garlicky white bean puree over hot and doughy pizza crust wedges topped with fresh tomato and basil . . . and then consider life complete.

I made these once for a pack of far-from-vegan guy friends and they scarfed them down. They were shocked to learn that they were vegetarian, let alone vegan! Trust me—this is your new dinner party go-to recipe.

I hosted a taste-testing party in New York City for some old college friends to test this pizza. I made the mistake of having it during an “important” football game, and one of the guys actually took out his laptop and turned on the game during dinner. Nobody paid attention to the food until one of them took a bite of this pizza. “Phenomenal” and “life-changing” were a couple of the adjectives used. This pizza is the ultimate touchdown!

As if carbonara isn’t lovable enough for having the word “carb” in it, here’s another reason to make it your favorite pasta. The creamy, indulgent sauce is made from healthy, high-protein tofu, but it tastes like it has all sorts of dairy products in it. Top it with shiitake bacon (simply thinly sliced roasted shiitake mushrooms with olive oil and sea salt) and it’s the perfect bait for your long-term mate!

Macaroni noodles swimming in creamy, cheesy, sweet potatoey sauce finished with a hint of fresh rosemary is my favorite way to start the Fall holidays.

Crispy roasted Brussels sprouts finished with a sweet apple cider reduction and pinch of cinnamon. Dessert or vegetable? It’s hard to tell!

Move over weird-colored fruitcake!

Gather the last of your summer produce and herbs, and toss it all into a delicious frittata. This egg-free frittata makes a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and can be made using any veggies you have on hand.
