I know this month appears to be about chocolate and it's not even Valentine's Day.  But what is a girl to do with these chocolate cravings?  Eat your dark chocolate I say. Chocolate pudding can be made in several ways and usually you would need chocolate, some sort of milk,  starch to keep it all together and heat to cook it with.  That's all good but this time I wanted my dessert as quickly as possible so I decided on a ...
Making these adorable spring cookies was a successful family affair.  It was still chilly outside on Sunday morning so instead of running out to the playground we decided to make cookies.  John and I were excited but Gabriel beamed once he realized that the step-ladder his daddy brought over was meant to facilitate a first class engagement with the goings of the kitchen countertop.  All the ingredients were ready to go bu...
Carrots are a typical go to veggie for baked goods and I wanted something different this time.  Shredded beets are so beautiful in salads that I figured they would be as lovely in muffins.   Reading through recipe books I found a great carrot muffin recipe in Flying Apron's Gluten-Free and Vegan Baking Book that I adapted quite a bit by replacing ingredients including the carrots for the beets.   The tahini icing is my own recipe...
Holiday Bread Pudding ~ I don't make this bread pudding too sweet  although I am a serious sweet monger.  The chocolate chips and raisins give it plenty of sweetness so much so that my husband and toddler love the resemblance of a chocolate chip cookie but in a bread pudding.  It's so difficult passing by the bread pudding sitting on the  kitchen counter without sneaking a bite...or two...or three... For the bread, I always u...
In one of my first posts I mentioned how much I love quinoa. In fact,  I love it so much that I try to incorporate it into many different dishes, including desserts.    This pudding is rich and creamy and  thickened with Kuzu Root Starch, which comes from a fibrous plant used in China for more than 2,000 year.  Kuzu is a great thickener and it is soothing to the stomach.  You can also think of this recipe as a great way to satisfy...
These cookies are technically flourless since one of the main ingredient besides peanut butter are ground almonds.  You can buy these in flour form, which just means exactly: ground blanched almonds. Bob's Mill makes a reasonably priced bag found at most natural food markets such as Whole Foods. The blackstrap molasses in this recipe add calcium and iron and combined with the almonds, you have a super power cookie. Peanut Butte...
I Love creamy sweet things.  This pudding is a chocolate kiss in your mouth, sweet and irresistible and awesome for a spring/summer treat.  And my toddler loves it too!  You can substitute the coconut milk with any non-dairy milk that suits you best.  The coconut milk just gives it extra richness.  See two photos of pudding: first one shows the pudding after it has set in the refrigerator, and the second depicts how the pudding loo...
These caramelized apples are light yet sweet and satisfying.  They also make a beautiful, quick and elegant dessert for a dinner party.  Because of their consistency, caramelized apples keep very well in the refrigerator for a few days for snacking or to serve to an unexpected guest. Definitely a healthy treat for both kids and adults. The cardamom and cinnamon in the mix give the caramel complexity and a zingy bite.   I have tried d...
