Lake Placid Citrus Cheesecake Tart

Lake Placid Citrus Cheesecake Tart

Several years ago, my husband and I vacationed in the lovely town of Lake Placid, in New York state. There we found a traditional diner offering a delicious breakfast option of plain yogurt topped with grapefruit and orange segments, and nutty granola. That combination inspired this citrus cheesecake tart. The cheesecake portion is lightly grapefruit flavored, but I always include orange segments as part of the garnish.

This recipe is amazing served on a cheese platter or alongside chicken or pork. It adds a savoury sweet zip that really elevates other foods.

Raw Turmeric Donuts

Raw Turmeric Donuts

When I wanted something delicious but still nourishing and anti-inflammatory, I created this recipe. These “donuts” are extra sneaky because they are raw and contain the superfood turmeric. While the melted vegan chocolate makes these extra yummy, try them without: they are still amazing, and 100% raw vegan without it!

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Fruit dumplings are popular throughout Central Europe, but this recipe is different than others in that it is made with farmer’s cheese. Strawberry dumplings are our family’s favorite, but this recipe can be used with Italian prune plums or small apricots. Though many would see this as a dessert, and it could be, these are more traditionally eaten at lunch. The best farmer’s cheese for this recipe is one that resembles feta, though if only a “pot style” farmer’s cheese is available, a little more flour could be added to make it work. For lunch, it serves two. For dessert, it could serve four.
