Instructions
  1. Mix together and knead all of the dough ingredients. This can be done by hand, mixer or in a bread machine (on dough setting).
  2. If mixed by hand or mixer, once smooth and soft, place dough in lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise for 60 minutes or doubled.
  3. Gently transfer dough to a floured surface. Roll dough into a large rectangle until dough is roughly just under a centimeter.
  4. Spread melted butter onto the surface of dough (reserving 1 tbsp). Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon evenly on top.
  5. From the shorter end, roll the dough into a log and cut into 15-16 slices.
  6. Place buns in a well-greased cast iron. Drizzle reserved 1 tbsp butter over buns. Cover skillet and let buns rise for about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  8. Uncover buns and bake for about 15 minutes, just until they're golden brown.
  9. While buns are in the oven, beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla.
  10. Remove cinnamon rolls from the oven and spread icing evenly on top while they're warm.
  11. Best server warm with a tall glass of milk. Wrap in plastic wrap to store at room temperature for a few days... If you're able to stay away for that long!

  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend flour and salt. Add in the butter and mix until it resembles a coarse meal.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of ice water and blend until the dough begins to clump together, adding more ice water by the the teaspoonfuls if the dough is dry.
  3. While you're working the dough, continue to gather the dough into a ball. Once it is in a ball, flatten it into a disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  4. After an hour, take the dough out and roll it between two sheets of parchment paper until it is approximately 1/8 inch thick. Place it back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the sliced persimmon slices, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and the lemon peel in a medium bowl. Toss to blend.
  6. Spread the preserves over the crust, leaving a 1 inch border.
  7. Arrange your persimmon slices overlapping each other. Feel free to make your own design! Fold the crust border up and over to create the galette shape.
  8. Brush the crust with milk or egg wash. Sprinkle the crust edges and persimmon with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  9. Bake the galette for 20 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking until crust is golden, about 20 minutes longer.
  10. Let your galette stand for at least 10 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of ice cream!

My grandma is famous for her breads... zucchini, pumpkin, banana you name it. But my personal favorite is her cranberry-orange bread. It's best served with a light sugary icing but her recipe doesn't call for it. Serve with a nice cup of tea!

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter; set aside.
  2. Place the flour, sugar, orange zest, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl and whisk to aerate and break up any lumps. Add the orange juice, melted butter, egg, and vanilla and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until just combined. Stir in the cranberries and nuts, if using, until evenly distributed.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan, pushing it into the corners and smoothing the top. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes, then turn the bread out onto the rack and cool completely.

Festive & Sugar-free Protein Pancakes

The holiday season is known for its eat-fest of cookies, pies, fudges, sweets and different kinds of heavy desserts, with loads of sugars and fatty creams…

Unfortunately there are too few delicious and healthy Christmas recipes…

Yes, they taste may amazing, but the sad truth is that none of them are really healthy, clean or natural.
Then I thought to myself, “what if I make a recipe that will save Christmas?“.

A recipe that looks like, feels like and tastes like Christmas, but healthy and clean, prepared without grain flour or sugar.

Well that’s a big challenge, but I’m up for it. Because fit girls deserve to get their creamy and tasty sweet treats too.

Since my father is diabetic, my mother traditionally makes a healthier dessert for the holidays.

So I decided to step up this year and take the mixer in my own hands!

I came up with the healthiest and yummiest Christmas dessert recipe of all time – my Protein Christmas Pancakes!

LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN! 🙂

  1. Blend the raspberries into a puree (don't worry about the seeds)
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients into a blender: the banana, egg, egg whites, coconut flour and the olive oil. Blend them until you make sure they've transformed into a homogeneous mixture It should be thick, but pour-able
  3. Heat a frying pan on medium temperature You should cook every pancake for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown. When the pancake starts getting bubbles, you’ll know that it’s time to flip it.
  4. Separate the coconut milk form the coconut water
  5. Pour the milk in a mixing bowl. Prepare the mixer and start mixing it on medium speed. After a minute, start adding the protein powder one tablespoon at a time, without stopping the mixer. After you finish pouring the protein powder, mix for another minute.
  6. Crease the whipped cream onto each pancake, arranging them one on top of the other.
  7. Mix the 3 ingredients, cocoa, honey and water, in a small bowl, with a tablespoon. Mix them until you get a homogeneous mixture. The dressing should be creamy and thick, but pour-able.
  8. Splash the dressing over your 7-story cake with the help of a tablespoon. To make a nice finish, add a tablespoon of whipped cream on top of the pancakes and a few fresh raspberries. And pour few tbsp of the raspberry puree.

The day after Thanksgiving may be the toughest time to cook for people who have hosted the big feast the day before. In my family, my stepmom calls it her day of rest. Her baguette french toast is the absolute perfect solution to keeping us all well fed with minimal effort on her part. She uses leftover (if there is any!) baguettes from dinner and throws any fruit she has in it, our favorite are blueberries! The best part about this breakfast, or brunch, is that you can make it the day before and pop it in the oven when you're ready to eat.

Bubbe’s Brisket

Recipe submitted by Amanda, Tea’s Sr. Marketing Manager

Every year for Hanukah my mom makes Brisket. Although Hanukah runs for 8 nights, we typically choose one night to celebrate it as a family. My siblings and I are grown up and living on our own, but we always make a point to pick one night we can come together as a family. Sure, it’s nice to see everyone and get together, plus we exchange gifts, but the biggest perk… her delicious, juicy, Jewish style brisket.

I’ve done my best to quantify this recipe, but the truth is, I think she changes it a little every time. The most important thing, is that there is both a sweet and a tangy element, and lots of liquid. My grandmother actually used to add coffee to it. So feel free to experiment and share how you added your own twist in a comment below!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place a couple of spoons of the chili sauce around the bottom of a roasting dish. Slice up the onions and spread them around the pan.
  3. Put the brisket on top (trim off any large pieces of fat). Fill in the area around the brisket with the potatoes and carrots.
  4. Cover everything with the rest of the chili sauce, the cranberry sauce, and the wine. Cover tightly with foil, because it will get really juicy.
  5. Cook at 300 degrees for 5-8 hours depending on the size of your brisket. It should fall apart when you test it with a fork.
  6. To serve, slice it up in the pieces against the grain. Make sure to get lots of juice and veggies. If you have to transport it, make sure it take the juice out first and put it in a Tupperware container. (I learned that the hard way.) The best part is, if you have any left, it freezes really well!
