Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, chia seeds, flax seed meal, and macadamia nuts. In a small bowl, mix together remaining ingredients and stir until fully incorporated. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir together until the dry ingredients are completely coated.

If you like chunky granola, press down on it when it gets out of the oven (wear a glove if it's still hot). Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to a month.

White Chocolate, Macadamia & Cranberry Cookies

My son and I have a family tradition of baking holiday cookies annually. We used to bake sugar cookies cut into holiday shapes and decorate them with frosting and sprinkles. But now that he is older, we are more focused on taste. These White Chocolate Cranberry cookies are exquisite. They are our new holiday cookie tradition.

  1. Wrap grated onion and squash in a dishtowel (or in your hand) and squeeze out excess water. Place in a large bowl and add the sage, baking powder, salt and pepper, oat bran, and flour. Taste and adjust the salt. Add the eggs and stir together.
  2. Set oven to 300 Fahrenheit, and heat a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add oil to the pan, and when it is hot, transfer a 1/4 cup of the mixture to the pan. Press down with the spatula to flatten. Repeat with more mounds. Cook on one side until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the pancakes over. Cook on the other side until golden brown, another 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a rack, set over a baking sheet, and place in the oven to keep warm.
  3. Serve hot topped with fried sage and sour cream, Greek-style yogurt, or crème fraîche.

Easy Peach-Plum Galette

5

My son and I have been baking together since he could stand and hold a spatula. It’s a bond that is special to me, and I’m grateful that we can continue to bake together when he is at home on break from college. This delicious and easy peach plum galette recipe is a collaboration between us that we came up with when we were at home isolated with Covid.

You can use any stone fruit in this beautiful galette. Peaches and plums are in season through September in California and this pastry is a perfect marriage of sweet, bitter, and buttery yumminess. Your family and friends will be impressed with your culinary skills! Surprisingly, it only takes 10 minutes to prep, then pop it in the oven for a glorious dessert.
