Chocolate Chia & Raspberry Parfait

I realize that we have shared a couple of quick parfaits here before but it is quite nice to have a few different desserts to choose between when late nights cravings set in. Our Apple Crunch Parfait seems to have become quite popular (not only in our house) and this new parfait is just as good. Easily explained, it’s a chai spiced chocolate chia pudding topped...

Roasted Cauliflower & Za’atar Salad

As the cauliflower was roasting in the oven and I was busy preparing the other vegetables, the smell of burnt plastic started oozing through the kitchen.
