Tex Mex Potato Latkes Now that I live in Texas, I am pretty heavily influenced by tasty Texan foodie delights such as queso, brisket, breakfast tacos, and of course queso. Mmm queso. So when I thought about how to jazz up the traditional latke, I immediately thought Mexican. Besides my residence close to the border, my former roommate back in NYC is half Jewish and half Mexican and she turned out pretty amazing, so surely it could work for a latke! An idea was born. Though there is no queso in sight, there is not a chance these babies will last even one round of dreidel come Hanukkah time.

Morrocan Meatballs This recipe is from my cookbook 'Well Fed: Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat' and my blog The Clothes Make The Girl (http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com) where I write about my adventures in the kitchen, the gym, and life.
Morocco has long been on my list of must-visit countries. Twisty alleys, markets crowded with vendors, scampering trained monkeys... I need to see it all. The country sits in the northwestern corner of Africa, and the influence of Arab and Moorish invaders can be tasted in traditional Moroccan cuisine. Lucky us! Spices like aromatic cinnamon, cumin, and paprika are prevalent, along with herbs like mint and parsley. These meatballs are seasoned with essential Moroccan spices, then simmered in tomatoes that cloak them in a sauce that tastes like mystery and adventure.

Quinoa Sausage Chili Hello, everyone! My name is Lizz and I run a blog called "lizz delicious," a vegan cooking and eating website created right here in Austin. I've been blogging for just over a year now and am still loving every minute of it! One of the things I like most about sharing my recipes is creating dishes that you wouldn't immediately expect to be vegan. This chili is a great example. The chipotle peppers in it give it a unique flavor. And a bowl of this stuff would go great with some hearty corn chips, fluffy corn muffins, or a slice of cornbread focaccia (the recipe for which can also be found on my blog!). Enjoy!

Quinoa Mac & Cheese The brain child of a near empty refrigerator and checking account, I lovingly share with you my recipe for quinoa mac & cheese.
It took me awhile to love quinoa – and honestly? I still don’t LOVE IT love it – but recipes like this make it easy to learn to love quinoa.

Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies I am not a baker. So, when my Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies turned out, no one was more surprised than me! Life is about stepping out of your comfort zone and well baking from scratch is quite uncomfortable! This recipe is easy. Very Easy. The cookies are melt-in-your mouth delicious with the perfect combination of sweet from the caramel with the sprinkling of sea salt. Truly a match made in cookie heaven.

Broccoli and Caramelized Onion Pizza The hubby and I love to make grilled pizzas. The crusts are easy to make, and they turn out so well on the grill -- plus it's a lovely excuse to get outside on a beautiful day!

Holy Moly Jalapeño Poppers The jalapeño poppers recipe comes from hanging out on Saturdays in the South at BBQs in backyards over beers. If you have ever smoked a pork butt or brisket or rack of ribs, it takes time and is well worth it. But you need snacks and nothing is better than coming up with items you can throw on the smoker, or grill, during the day to munch on and hold over your appetite. This is one of those such items.

Local Savour Cabbage Salad with Texas Orange Poppyseed Dressing Beautiful Texas oranges with a touch of brown sugar and poppy-seeds gives this salad just the right amount of gusto. An excellent perk of a good cabbage salad is that it lasts for a couple of days in the refrigerator, that is if you don't eat all of it first.

Crispy Chicken Tortilla Rollups I created these flauta-chimichanga hybrid for our Cinco de Mayo celebration last year, and they were a huge hit. I was absolutely floored when this recipe became very popular via Pinterest and a couple of other sharing sites. This is hands down my most popular recipe to date -- it's been pinned more than 52K times! I have received a lot of positive feedback via comments and e-mail that other people enjoy it a lot as well. This one is popular for a reason...and I hope you enjoy it too!!

Peanut Pumpkin Bisque, From Maggie's Farm I almost look forward to cold and flu season. Because it comes during the cooler, crisper days I prefer. Because it gives one a great excuse to hunker down in bed all day with movies or books or puppies or whatever. And, because this soup—this bowl of goodness—it's our medicine. It's really quite healthy—full of vitamins and antioxidants that support the immune system, and our favorite feature--a slight slow burn on the back of the tongue as a sort of culinary afterthought—soothing to the throat during the occasional bout of sniffles we're sure to endure.
At the first sign of a tender throat, we're likely to pass the bottle of cough syrup by for a jar of this simple Peanut Pumpkin Bisque.

Grandma's Favorite Lemon Tart Growing up we always had a ton of citrus and fruit trees on our property and twice a year my grandmother would come to stay with us to help pick,can and bake. Lemons, oranges, apricots, and plums were the order of the day and we were up to our eyeballs in fruit!
My grandmothers favorite however was lemons! So twice a year when she was at our home, she would make a lemon tart in the middle of the all the picking, canning & baking insanity.

@FraserKR - great question. When you're logged into BakeSpace, it will be in your "downloaded cookbooks" tab in your "my kitchen" page. If you're in the app... it will be in the My Cookbooks Tab. If you download a cookbook here and sync your ipad to your account, all your cookbooks will match the web & iPad together.
