Coffee Caramel Crunch Dairy-Free Ice Cream - a great treat for a hot day!

Coffee Caramel Crunch Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Have you ever made a recipe simply because you like the way it sounds? Coffee Caramel Crunch. Birthed into being because I like the alliteration. But maybe you aren’t that superficial (you probably don’t judge a book by its cover, either). You gaze beyond a recipe title to assess the ingredients, the instructions, the do-ability. Once you […]

Get Your Guide to Gluten-Free Flours

Dairy-Free Mocha Almond Chocolate

Mocha Almond Dairy-Free Chocolates

Hello, friends! I’m popping in today to share a quick and easy recipe for dairy-free chocolates, which was inspired by the mocha almond fudge ice cream recipe I made a few months ago that I basically ate in one sitting. (No, no, I didn’t eat it all at once – but I was tempted.) As […]

It’s easy to make a gluten-free pie crust if you can employ eggs and butter, or whip up a vegan pie crust when you work with glutenous flours. But a gluten-free AND vegan pie or tart crust? It’s the holy grail of allergen-friendly baking, and sometimes may even feel like it’s as impossible to conceive as the […]

Ice Cream Friday: Sunbutter Cup Blizzards

Have you ever made peanut (or almond) butter cups at home? It’s a simple treat, but a time-consuming one: Melt chocolate. Swirl in mini muffin liners. Chill. Melt nut butter and sugar. Spoon into liners. Chill. Melt chocolate again. Pour over the top of the nut butter. Chill for the last time. Then I saw […]

Ice Cream Friday: Around the Web

Soooo this Friday’s dairy-free ice cream attempt was a big fat flop. The theme of the week was ‘breakfast ice cream’, where I hopped on the banana ice cream train and tossed in a few superfoods like hemp and cacao for a healthy morning treat. It basically came out like this smoothie. Don’t get me […]

Mocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Mocha Almond Fudge

Sea Salt and Honey Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Sea Salt and Honey

Every week I say to myself, “This Ice Cream Friday I should make a sorbet.” And then I never do. Part of the reason is I’m not a fan of fruity desserts and will always choose the gooey, chocolatey, caramel-ish options over crumbles, sorbets or fruit-stuffed pies. But mainly the reason is when summertime fruits […]
