Master Chefs for a Cause

27 Aug

Combine a popular TV show with gourmet food, and you will have a spectacular event — especially it’s for a good cause like the Friendship Circle.

The Friendship Circle is an organization for children with special needs. With over 79 locations worldwide the Friendship Circle has cultivated friendships between 5,000 special children and close to 11,000 teen volunteers. Each independent Friendship Circle is operated by its local Chabad Lubavitch Center, and entirely supported by each local community to benefit local children with special needs.

On Monday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. in metro-Detroit, three professional chefs will compete in an exciting culinary battle to test their creativity and cooking skills. Like in the television show MasterChef, these stars in the kitchen will be presented with an astonishing assortment of ingredients and quick-fire challenges (including inexperienced sous chefs) as they battle before your eyes.

Fresh Peach Oatmeal Muffin Cups

A healthy, delicious muffin — no oil, no sugar and no flour!

Fresh Peach Oatmeal Muffins

Glorious fresh peaches are the star here.

Rolled oats, bananas, and applesauce combined with juicy peaches create these very portable little muffin cups. I’ve fallen in love with them, and have been making a batch or two weekly.

Here’s the bonus – NO sugar, flour, or oil. Yes, this is good, good stuff.

These are lovely warm from the oven, and perfect for breakfast, of course, but I think they’re an ideal afternoon snack as well.

When fresh peaches are not in season, frozen peaches work great. Fresh or frozen blueberries or/and cherries are a delicious swap, too.

One more thing…I recently purchased a silicone muffin pan to eliminate the need for so many parchment paper liners. If you’re on the fence (as I was), I can report that I’m very pleased with how well it performs. If you don’t have one, no problem. Just use paper liners instead.

Workout aficionados, yoga devotees and women everywhere, there’s a new bra in town. Elyse Kaye, a former Motowner, is founder and CEO of Bloom Bras. Kaye enlisted the help of celebrity corset designer Camilla Huey to develop a patented design to make an adjustable and comfortable bra. Kaye just launched on Kickstarter to lift this company to new heights.  Not only does Kaye have the entrepreneurial spirit, but she is philanthropic as well. Some of the proceeds will go to breast cancer research. Look at all the support (pun intended) and check out this unique design.
