Creamy Fruit Salad

Recently, I needed to come up with a dessert that avoided gluten as well as the gluten substitutions. In other words, if it involved dough, batter or other bready type stuff, it wasn’t going to fly. A couple years after going gluten free, I began getting headaches just by baking with wheat for others the. […]

9 Things To Do With Bananas

You may have seen this post on a website I was a contributor for. When the website became read only & no longer publishing new content, I worried about the future of my posts. I am posting them here where I never have to worry about them getting lost in cyber space, should the other […]

Buttery Vanilla Bean Pudding

Last fall, we were invited to a farm to table event. This is the last minute pudding I threw together (tripled, of course) 🙂 I’ve made it since. I’ve surprised my Eggplant Lady with it since. 🙂 Go make some. Like now. You know you wanna! Like this? You may also be interested in:Brazilian Chicken […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

This cake is slightly chewy, and while it’s different than the regular ol’ chocolate cakes you’re accustomed to (with gluten), it’s quite tasty. The kids liked it enough to ask for the last 2 pieces when we were digging up dessert one night. One of the best parts- it’s xanthan free, so it’s wonderful for […]

Buttermilk Banana Ice Cream… Oh yes.

I know this one seems kind of weird, but I view it as similar to frozen yoghurt (which the kids concur). I decided to give it a whirl to see what would happen. I’m out of cocoa powder, but I think I’ll add 2 tablespoons next time to see. I know – *GASP* – Out. […]

Everything But the Kitchen Sink Bites

Not So Chocolate Mousse Mousse

I wanted something chocolate. I always want something chocolate. I can’t help it. Or maybe I don’t want to help it. Anyway…. This is what I threw together. It’s sort of a cross between mousse & pudding. Since it’s not made with whipped cream or eggs, it’s not a true mousse. Hm. Whatever. Let’s just […]
