Healthified! These delicious chocolate cookies may have the flavor and texture of fudge brownies, but they are lower in fat. An entire can of pureed pumpkin takes the place of shortening in the recipe, bringing iron, dietary fiber, and vitamins A, C, and E to this Halloween party.

No-Crust Mini Pizzas: My No-Guilt Writer's Snack by Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF
   

As a kid, I took all my pop's homegrown veggies for granted. As an adult, I miss them dearly, especially at the end of summer. This recipe for mini pizzas makes great use of zucchini. My Italian-born mother and aunt used to make them as a kid-friendly lunch for me when I was a little girl. As a grown woman, I now make them in the afternoons as a no-guilt writer's snack.

How to Make Norwegian Egg Coffee and Your Own Spiced Coffee Blend by Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

If you are a reader of my Coffeehouse Mysteries, you might recall the subject of Norwegian Egg Coffee coming up at the start of Billionaire Blend when coffee shop manager Clare Cosi describes the method as "cowboy coffee with an egg broken into it." Well, that's exactly what it boils down to (pun intended).


This basic method of making coffee is known by other names, as well: Swedish Egg Coffee, Finnish Egg Coffee, Hungarian Egg Coffee, and (of course) Lutheran Church Basement Egg Coffee. In this post, I'll show you what I consider the best way to get the tastiest results.

By the way, have you heard? Sitting is the new smoking. Like many writers, I do plenty of walking to counteract the endless sitting. But the issue of noshing is always a tough one for writers. One can eat only so many carrot sticks, which is why I'm always on the lookout for healthy treats like this one.
