Kristen Bell’s Everything Cookies
Kristen Bell shared her ‘Everything Cookie’ recipe on The Today Show back in 2017, and apparently, she’s quite the baker! These cookies are gluten-free, but you can make them with either gluten-free or all-purpose flour. Wanna make these Everything Cookies yourself? Here’s the recipe:
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 1 large organic egg
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup gluten-free flour or all-purpose unbleached flour
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
Firstly, you’ll need to preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Next, mix the butter, applesauce, sugar, agave nectar, vanilla cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and vinegar until fairly smooth before you beat in the egg until smooth. Add in the baking soda and flour, mix well. Then, combine the oats and both kinds of chips into the mixture. Place the cookies onto the baking sheets and make sure to space the cookies and leave plenty of room because they spread, and bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes. To make sure they cook all the way through, reverse the pans halfway (top rack to bottom and bottom to top).
Meghan Markle’s Zucchini Bolognese
If you’re looking for something that’s both healthy and delicious, you should definitely try out Meghan Markle’s Zucchini Bolognese. She revealed that she loves making a three-ingredient zucchini pasta sauce in an interview she did with Delish in 2018. Though it’s still debatable whether this recipe is considered ‘easy’ since the pasta sauce takes 4 hours to make! Here’s the recipe:
- 5/6 zucchinis
- 1 yellow onion, chopped (optional)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil.
- 1 chicken bouillon cube.
- 1-2 cups of water.
- 1 package penne or rigatoni
Firstly, add the zucchini, onion, bouillon cubes, and water in a large slow cooker. Then, set the timer to cook for four hours on low heat, stirring once or twice during that timeframe. The zucchini will start to brown and get mushy. Then, at the 3 hour and 40-minute mark, you can start cooking your pasta. Once your pasta is cooked, you can season your zucchini sauce with some salt and pepper, and serve immediately over your pasta.
If you’re craving some chips with some delicious dipping sauce, you should definitely try out Beyoncé’s famous guacamole recipe. And you’ll only need a few ingredients for this one:
- 2 avocados
- 1 small onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 small tomato
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
- Salt and pepper
For this, you would need to peel the avocados and remove the pit. Mash it with a spoon in a large bowl. Then, add your chopped onion, garlic and tomatoes to the avocado. Then, squeeze in some lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Make sure to mix it well!

- 1/2 tsp salt
- 100g granulated sugar
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
