Sliced zucchini
I love the idea of muffins, but they’re rarely done well. They’re dry, don’t really deliver on fruit to muffin dough ratio, and are usually more calories than their buttery breakfast cousin: the croissant. So when I started making these (because making croissants seems difficult and too tempting), I was thrilled to find that not only do they stay moist, but they’re flavorful and taste super healthy. That I use butter instead of oil in this recipe is a personal preference and refusal not to have butter as part of everything I eat. But you can easily see that with a few very minor adjustments (oil instead of butter, whole wheat flour instead of white), these muffins can be a super healthy start to your day.

Couscous with Caramelized Onion and Raisin Tfaya
This classic couscous exemplifies the sophisticated and harmonious blending of the sweet with the savory. The broth and tender chicken — laden with a mixture of fragrant spices — are delectable, but the real star is the caramelized onion and raisin tfaya that tops the couscous grains like a regal, honeyed crown.

Swiss chard is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E, and K, and a great source of iron, potassium, manganese, and magnesium. It’s similar in flavor to spinach, but since it’s in the beet family, it comes in a variety of eye-catching colors. Try them in this easy side dish recipe.

Biscuit Bread Pudding
This bread pudding is the comfort food of childhood. The heady aroma of cinnamon makes it hard to wait for this dish to come out of the oven. As with any casserole, the timing is dependent on the shape of the casserole dish — a deep one will take longer than a shallow one. Whole milk, as in any good pudding or biscuit, is needed.

Kabsa
When I was young and we had guests coming over, one of the dishes my mum always made was kabsa. Serving platters loaded with spicy golden rice and chicken topped with almonds and raisins would take center stage on the table. My part in it was to chop the tomatoes, slice the peppers, and grate the carrots. You can say I was mum’s sous chef. Kabsa or kabseh is one of the traditional dishes served in the Arabian Gulf area. It is a unique mixture of rice (has to be long grain and you can use basmati), meat (chicken, beef, goat, lamb, or even camel), spices, and vegetables topped with nuts and raisins. The secret to kabsa’s identity and taste is the blend of spices used in it: black pepper, allspice, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves, and nutmeg are some of the spices that lend their magic to make kabsa a special and memorable dish. I am sharing my own kabsa recipe which is mildly adjusted from my mum’s, and she makes awesome kabsa. I urge you to give it a try as is and from there you can adjust the spices, change the vegetables, and make the recipe your own.

It may sound crazy to put bacon in your oatmeal raisin cookies, but you’ll soon see why we do it at Hot Cakes. Bacon paired with its breakfast counterparts oatmeal and raisins creates the perfect cookie, with hints of savory smokiness. We adapted our recipe just for this milkshake.
