Caramel Kissed Chocolate GF Cookies

Caramel Kissed Chocolate GF Cookies

I had some leftover Dulce de Leche after making my Salted Pistachio Caramel Bars so I decided use it up in some chocolatey gluten free cookies. Our girls are glad I did as the cookies taste terrific and look really cute; they’re a great holiday treat and in my opinion they surprisingly taste even better […]

Chocolate Ricotta Pound Cake (with GF option)

This is one of my best ever gluten free cakes, it’s so moist and light and still chocolatey-good.

Santa's Almond Cherry Cookies

Santa’s Almond Cherry Cookies

Christmas is a wonderful time of year but often before we can get the enjoyment of it we need to spend lots of time preparing for it. This is especially true of the foods we eat so when possible I like to make things easier by preparing what I can ahead of time. These Santa’s […]

Wild Sockeye Salmon Cakes

Wild Sockeye Salmon Cakes

These salmon cakes feature delicious wild Sockeye salmon, lemon, fresh dill (which is one of my favorites but is optional here) and they are really very healthy as they have little saturated fat or unwanted calories. There’s certain food items we religiously buy at Costco because of superior quality and price. The Parmigiano Reggiano is […]

Chocolate Chili Tart

Chocolate Chili Tart

In Calgary the weather is not exactly tropical for a good chunk of the year. So it’s always nice to have a little something spicy or sweet to put a smile on our face. Or double your pleasure and have both together! Recently I sampled some of Papa Chocolat’s dark chocolate with chili. It was […]

Butternut Squash Ricotta Casserole

Butternut Squash Ricotta Casserole

The idea for this casserole came while I was watching a Polish breakfast morning TV show called Dzien Dobry TVN. They were preparing something similar, without ricotta, but they went through the ingredients very quickly and I never caught the full recipe. So I came up with my own. This dish is excellent as one […]

Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart

My salted caramel chocolate turtles have been one of my most popular desserts so I decided to prepare another treat with salt, caramel and chocolate. This flavor combination really is something special and be warned, it’s very easy to get carried away with these! The tart is so very creamy in texture, looks great, tastes […]

Almond Crust Pumpkin Pie

Almond Crust Pumpkin Pie

Why? Well, because it’s Fall. Because it is American Thanksgiving. Because it’s a vegetable. Because I love it! Any excuse is a good one to make a pumpkin pie and if it is a healthy gluten free version that’s an even better excuse.  :-)  Note: You can use pumpkin puree if you prefer, but remember […]

Balsamico Cabbage with Boursin and Glutino Crackers

Balsamico Cabbage with Boursin and Glutino Crackers

Whenever I prepare Lebanese Shawarmas, I think it is absolutely a must to include the pickled cabbage. But you don’t need tons of it, and a head of cabbage goes a long way. A great way to use up that remaining head is to use it for this appetizer. When cabbage is cooked with balsamic […]
