rethink your brownie

Bad news seems to be everywhere these days. Well, I have good news for you. You can have a brownie at your disposal in 10 minutes. A healthy brownie, too! Check out my wiiiicked good unbaked brownie, with a dried fruit and nut base. Flaky sea salt? Yes, please. Pretty, pretty please. Yields: 12 brownies 2 1/2 cups dates, I used a combo of dates and dried Turkish figs 1 1/2 cup nuts, I used almonds 6 T cocoa powder 1 t vanilla extract 1/2 t almond extract. You can use vanilla, if that is what you have! Almond extract is my personal favorite. 2 t water 1/4 t salt 1/4 cup cocoa powder 1/4 cup maple syrup, agave or honey 2 T oil, preferably melted coconut oil or vegetable oil 1/2 t vanilla extra

Alison Roman's Lemony Turmeric Tea Cake

Lemony turmeric tea cake. Try saying that 5 times fast! Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to assist Chef Alison Roman in a beautiful kitchen at a home on the Battery in Charleston, SC during Charleston Wine + Food. Alison Roman is a New York Times Cooking columnist and a frequent contributor to Bon Appetit Magazine. Alison's book, "Nothing Fancy", is pure gold. Alison is unfussy, and prefers to call entertaining "having people over". She uses what she has on hand and worships imperfections in the kitchen as the secret ingredient to a fun gathering. I ate half the tea cake on one sitting, and don't feel bad about it. At all. ​ Photograph by Michael Graydon / Nikole Herriott / NYT / R
