Patience is a virtue in most cases. But when it’s cold outside and all you want to do is heat your body up from the inside out, well in that case, patience is basically irrelevant. So because I am the biggest wuss in Florida and possibly the world when it comes to cold weather, I make quick soups. Soups that taste amazing and take less than 20 minutes to make. This one comes together in about 15.

Festive Kale Caesar Salad. Light, eggless Caesar dressing with homemade anchovy butter croutons.

Festive Kale Caesar Salad., Honest Fare by Gabrielle Arnold

What’s green and red with white all over? A kale Caesar salad of course! Well, I must be in the holiday spirit because this unintentionally came out to be the most festive looking salad of all time.

Love Caesar salad. Hate the calories though. Here we have a healthy and seriously delicious alternative to those traditional Caesar dressings that are loaded with fat from egg yolks, cheese and lots of oil. This one is made of Greek yogurt (protein!), olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, a touch of parm cheese, agave, salt and pep. I did add in one anchovy fillet for smoky flavor, but feel free to omit if you have any qualms because it’s great either way. I’m very impressed with how fantastic this Caesar-like dressing came out – you won’t miss a thing about classic Caesar!

Aloha Muffins with Macadamia Butter (gluten free, vegan) Pineapple, coconut, oat muffins with macadamia nut butter. Inspired by my recent trip to Hawaii!

Aloha Muffins with Macadamia Butter (gluten free, vegan), Honest Fare by Gabrielle Arnold

I know it’s Halloween week and I should probably be sharing some kind of spooky treat, but the truth is I’m not really feeling all that…uh, goolish at the moment. I just got back from an incredible trip to Kauai, Hawaii, where it’s warm and wild and breathtaking at every turn, so the thought of dressing up for Halloween is the farthest thing from my mind. What a chore that would be. I just can’t be bothered – so instead, I’m holding on to the warmth and the island flavors of Hawaii, which sound a hell of a lot better than costume make-up and miniature snickers. I hope you’ll enjoy this Hawaiian treat instead of a Halloween treat this year!

This recipe is inspired by the abundance of fresh fruit and coconut we ate there and the macadamia nut butter that’s so popular all over the island. The muffin is gluten free (made with oat flour and oats) and uses coconut milk and oil instead of butter. The vegan macadamia butter is a simple blend of roasted macadamia nuts, agave and coconut oil.

Yaya’s tortilla española of summer squash. My grandmother's traditional Spanish recipe featured in Food52's Heirloom Column!

Yaya’s tortilla española of summer squash., Honest Fare by Gabrielle Arnold

We all have a soft spot for at least one meal or recipe. These are the dishes we’ll never get tired of and the ones we carry with us throughout the years to share with the special people in our lives. Could be cornbread, could be eggplant parm. And sure, we love and repeat these dishes because they’re that good, but maybe it’s also about the time period in our lives or the season they represent. And in some golden cases, it might even be for the person they remind us of.

My soft spot is for Tortilla Española. I grew up eating my yaya’s (grandmother in Catalan) traditional Spanish version of the omelet, so sharing this recipe feels like a tribute to her and her influence on me. Yaya could knock out a tortilla like it was nothing and I remember always being so fascinated by the way she’d effortlessly flip that thing right in the pan, cooking it perfectly on both sides…
