Vegetarian Chipotle Chili

Super Nummy is back! After some technical snafoos last week, here we are again with a smoky chipotle chili full of fresh veggies. No cans, all fresh, and just in time for the apocalyptic awesome blizzard tonight.

5-Grain Hot Cereal with Maple, Persimmon, and Coconut

Cuddle up with a creamy, flavorful, whole grain hot cereal that’s less sticky and nuttier than oatmeal, nutritious, filling, and cheaper than store-bought. This recipe will make enough dry mix for a week’s worth of hot breakfast to kick-start our winter booty detox, cause, you know, too many cookies. Clockwise from left to right in a swirly pattern ending in the center: millet, oat bran, amaranth, Himalayan pink salt, stone-ground cornmeal, …

Raspberry Chocolate Cake

Raspberry Chocolate Fudge Cake

Inspired by Lindt raspberry dark chocolate truffles, this cake’s got the creamiest top layer infused with the syrupy juice of bursting raspberries. You get all the decadent flavor of a flourless chocolate cake in each bite, with a much lighter texture. Plus, it’s a snap to make with only 7 ingredients and bakes up in under 30 minutes.

Golden Buttermilk Cornbread

An extremely moist, subtly sweet, and miraculously low fat cornbread with loads of flavor and a tender crumb. The secret is stone-ground cornmeal soaked overnight in buttermilk. This cornbread is so flavorful I like it best plain. It stays moist for days, although it won’t last that long. I made 1 loaf and 8 muffins for this post. It disappeared in a blink! …
