Garlicky Heirloom Tomato Sauce

Late summer tends to be prime tomato season. Are you still seeing tomatoes available at your local farmers' markets and grocery stores? If so, grab about six pounds and make yourself some tomato sauce from scratch!

Here are the advantages:

1. This tomato sauce is sooo delicious, you could eat a cup of it, straight up. Seriously, it's so good, it could easily double as a soup. The flavor you get from using fresh, ripe tomatoes is incomparable.

Thai Buckwheat Salad with Arugula, Coconut & Cashews

This meal is delicious! It makes a wonderful make-ahead-and-take-to-work lunch, as well as a crowd pleasing potluck dish (if you double it).

In the past, I've also swapped kale in place of arugula, and I've...

Applesauce Bars

A Sweet Treat

I'm going to be straight up-front with you on this. Although by most standards it's still not very much, this recipe contains more sugar than I usually include in my baked goods. I suppose I was feeling decadent when I developed this recipe.

So enjoy these Applesauce Bars as a dessert, or snack with afternoon tea, or even for weekend brunch. They are delicious. But please regard them as an occasional treat, and remember that just because something is "vegan," doesn't...
