Carrot Cake Cupcakes ♥

My cupcake adaptation of a Cook's Illustrated recipe for carrot cake, it has a light cupcake crumb and is lightly spiced with carrot-cake flavors. I especially like the cream cheese frosting! Great carrot cake flavor with perfect cupcake texture! The big surprise? The carrots are grated in a food processor and the cupcake batter is mixed in the food processor too!

Finally! Vegetable Recipes with Weight Watchers Green, Blue & Purple Points

It's a big day for vegetable lovers who follow Weight Watchers! On Sunday, I flipped the switch, converting A Veggie Venture's most popular Weight Watchers page to the current point system, the myWW rainbow of green, blue and purple points.

Weight Watchers Spinach & Tortellini Soup ♥

A simple vegetable soup enriched with fresh cheese tortellini and barely cooked fresh spinach, my adaptation of a tortellini and spinach soup from the WW app. Pick up a package of fresh pasta and a few vegetables, supper's on the table in a flash. It's slurpy delish!

PS Yes, times are worrisome and uncertain. Some moments, it all seems dire. FYI I am collecting resources for dealing with the global pandemic at my food column Kitchen Parade, converting weekly posts called Seasonal Sundays to, ever since the start of the coronavirus three weeks ago, topics and ideas meaningful during this period of social distancing. (Most recently? Seasonal Sundays (Week 12) Mid March.) If you think these might help, please consider a free e-mail subscription. Take care, be well, hang in there ... )

Crustless Quiche with Roasted Peppers ♥

Hello, morning! Rise 'n' shine because it's time for a quick, healthy breakfast. Today it's quiche. But there's no crust, saving both time and calories. It makes up in minutes with pantry ingredients, save perhaps one. The secret ingredient is cottage cheese, which make the quiche moist and cheesy throughout, adding protein and body.
