Easy, flavorful, protein-packed dish that can be served any time of day as a meal, side dish, or snack.
Orange Sage Olive Oil Cake
With all the flavor of a pound cake, this lighter variety has a wonderfully springy mouthfeel. I love to pair herbs with desserts and found orange and sage to be a gorgeous match, but you can play with the combinations to suit your preferences- perhaps grapefruit with rosemary, or lemon and thyme, lime and black pepper even.
This is not an overly sweet cake, and it pairs nicely with a simple vanilla ice cream, plain whipped cream that allows to orange to do all the talking, or with a simple piece of dark chocolate or almonds. And like so many baked goods, this cake is exceptional the day after it’s baked.

This is a basic bread pudding or French toast bake, whatever you’d like to call it, with a hint of holiday joy from the eggnog.

I love the flavor combo of lavender and fresh lemon, and this shortbread recipe has a perfect balance of sugar and salt.
