The Easiest Coconut Cake You’ll Ever Make

easy_one_bowl_coconut_cakeYou won’t find a coconut cake anywhere that’s this easy to make. One bowl. Simple ingredients. Quick and easy recipe. It’s a variation of my easy one bowl yellow cake with just a couple of changes and one of them is of course, lots of coconut. This is an easy cake you can make quickly and have a delicious homemade dessert ready any time.

I try to always use ingredients that most people either have on hand or can easily find. And I always try to bake without butter and I have done it again with this cake. Even the cream cheese frosting is made without butter and I promise you will not miss it. What you will miss is the rest of the cake because it will disappear very quickly!

Cancer Fighting Soup

cancer_fighting_soupEvery single ingredient in this healthy cancer-fighting soup is there for a reason. These are the vegetables that researchers believe contain powerful anti cancer compounds. So I put them all into one delicious, nutritious, easy to make soup. And when you make it with homemade chicken stock, you increase the health-promoting properties even more. Here’s what’s in it and why:

Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower – These are cruciferous vegetables, the most widely recommended food group to eat to protect against cancer.

Carrots – Orange colored vegetables are believed to help against many types of cancer.

Kale – Dark greens like kale and spinach are key to cancer and disease protection. If you use spinach, stir it in just at the end when the soup is done.

Tomato – Red tomatoes are a must for anyone concerned about prostate cancer. They are a good source of lycopene, especially prepared and canned tomatoes (even ketchup and tomato sauce or paste) but they need a little fat to be absorbed, so that’s why you must include the olive oil. I use canned tomatoes because canned are a better source of lycopene than fresh.

Garlic & Onion – They both have strong anti-inflammatory properties and it’s believed they can help slow down the growth of cancer cells.

So if you are looking to protect your health in the future or trying to prevent a recurrence of cancer, research tells us that eating these vegetables can help.  Or if you just want to be as healthy as possible, you will love this quick and easy homemade vegetable soup.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

peanut_butter_chocolate_chip_cookiesThis may be the easiest cookie recipe ever. No mixer, no flour, no butter, and only five ingredients. Well… make that six. It’s my peanut butter cookie recipe but this time I added chocolate chips. Wow! They were so good I made them twice this week. It’s a winning combination: peanut butter and chocolate, and even healthier by using dark chocolate chips so I just had to share my “new” recipe.

This recipe is so flexible that next time I might add some extra chopped peanuts too. This simple recipe is so easy, even if you don’t bake, you can make these cookies. – plain or with chocolate chips.  Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

“Baking bread is my new found love.  WHO “kneads” men when you have fresh warm bread!  I love watching your Your YouTube cooking show. You are, by far, my favorite.  You are fun to watch but more importantly, your recipes are easy to follow and always come out superbly. Your cabbage rolls are next.  Again, the steps and method looks great.  I will chill them and then sauté them the next day and serve with sour cream!”

DIANE MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD
“Hi Jenny!  I am from Vancouver, BC and just made this loaf of no knead bread.  It turned out really well although I will try your tip to preheat to 450 and reduce to 425 to bake.  i bought the cast iron pan in the photos just to make this loaf but the bottom IS a tad tough!  Not inedible by any means though – we just tore into it! Big fan!”

ROSE MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS
“Hi there Jenny. I am from Barrie, Canada. I make your recipe today, hoping to freeze them for Our Thanksgiving dinner this weekend.I used a light coloured air sheet with parchment paper and baked them on the middle rack at 450, as my oven thermometer said, for 28 minutes. They tasted good but not quite done and didn’t brown like your photo. I can’t figure out why. I have been baking for 39 years. I definitely want to get these right as I feel this recipe is going to be a keeper. Any suggestions? Thanks and hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving.”

*Two things  come to mind. One, your oven may not have been hot enough but if you used a free-standing oven thermometer, the kind that rests on the rack, then that may not be the problem. It takes my oven about 1/2 hour to reach 450 so that’s why I suggest 35 minutes to preheat. I think it’s more likely the air sheet. I tried one only once for some cookies and never used it again. They are made to prevent burning but they also prevent browning. If you have a standard silver colored baking sheet I suggest you try that and please let me know your results. – jenny

*I’m glad to know they turned out… and Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving! – jenny
