If you’ve already caught onto the kombucha craze, I applaud you! But if not, I’ll be the first to admit that just a little more than a week ago, even I had absolutely no idea what this stuff was, or why there is such a fuss over it!

Banana bread holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I had a nanny who would make a big loaf every Friday afternoon, complete with chocolate chips! She would let me lick the bowl and spatula after she was done and of course we’d be nibbling away at the loaf all weekend long.

The French is well known for their excellent cuisine, so I was really excited when Marie agreed to share some of her French creations just in time for Christmas. Below is the gingerbread recipe, but there are also links to other ones (like her spicy orange clementine salad and marzipan recipe). Check them out!
This dish is like a dessert to me! It’s sweet, warm, soft, and buttery.
But it has zero added sugar, and the ghee and cinnamon in this recipe help to ensure your blood sugar doesn’t spike too much from eating the sweet potatoes and butternut squash (of course you might still want to avoid this dish if you have blood sugar issues).
Best of all, this recipe works even if you only have sweet potatoes or only have butternut squash!

During the holiday season, it is absolutely mandatory to consume chocolate several times daily.

So how ‘bout a rich, fudgey brownie topped with a sweet, buttery mound of cookie dough?
Even though my heritage is Jewish, my family always celebrated “secular” Christmas with our family friends. We never took up the Jewish tradition of movies and dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and for good reason: we didn’t want to miss out on the food! Not to mention another opportunity to join around the table and celebrate the holiday season with our community. For me, that’s what Christmas is all about.
