No Churn Mint Chip Ice Cream

So who really owns their own ice cream maker? Well, I do. In fact, I own two of them. I recently upgraded to a compressor model, the sort that doesn’t require the bowl to be frozen ahead of time. But I found myself reluctant to give up on my heretofore very reliable standard model. So I kept them both. You know, just in the off chance that I am suddenly required to make four or five quarts of ice cream ……[Continue Reading]

No Bake Peanut Butter “Granola” Bars

When you embark upon a low carb and grain-free diet, you think there will be foods that are off limits to you for the rest of your life. You scroll past yummy looking treats on Pinterest or Facebook, assuming that they just aren’t for you. You’re okay with it…most of the time. You’ve committed to your health above all and for that, you can feel virtuous. Yay you! But oh, those days when the cravings hit. Maybe you had a ……[Continue Reading]

Cranberry Cheesecake

Let’s consider the lowly cranberry for a moment, shall we. I say lowly for several reasons. For one, they grow on bushes low to the ground. They also grow really well in low-lying bogs or shallow standing water. They are extremely low in carbohydrate, with about only 12 grams per cup of berries. But unlike most berries, they are extremely tart and without any natural sweetness, so they aren’t many people’s first choice for healthy, low carb snacking. But despite ……[Continue Reading]

Pecan Pie Biscotti

I am a pecan pie fiend. An absolute aficionado, if you will. I’ve loved it since my first bite as a child. All that gooey, caramel-y, rich pecan flavor. Even not very good pecan pie was better than most desserts. I absolutely couldn’t pass it up, especially if it was topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Warm pecan pie straight from the oven? My idea of heaven. Of course, I pass up the stuff all the time now. Having ……[Continue Reading]

Pumpkin Tiramisu

The summer has come and gone, and as always I am a little sad to see it go. But while I love the sunshine and spontaneous fun of summertime, I have a special place in my heart for fall. It may mean getting back to a regular schedule and the daily grind, but it also brings so much beauty. I love the chillier mornings and the bright changing leaves. I love that I can wake up and put on a ……[Continue Reading]

Chocolate Cake with Orange Mascarpone Frosting

Want to hear something crazy? I used to not like cake very much. That might be overstating it a bit. I mean, I would eat cake when it was offered and some of it was very good. But a lot of it wasn’t and I got turned off sponge cake in general. It was often too dry, with frosting that tasted like nothing but sugar. It could look so beautiful and be decorated in all sorts of fancy ways, and ……[Continue Reading]

Because this cake roll is worth all the time and effort it takes to make. Tender chocolate sponge cake, creamy strawberry cheesecake filling, all drizzled with rich chocolate ganache. It looks like a million bucks and it tastes like it too. Cake rolls are ……[Continue Reading]

Tagalongs and Avoiding Temptations

If you’ve recently gone low carb or sugar-free, chances are you fear Girl Scout Cookie season like no other. Oh sure, they look all sweet and innocent, in their little brown and green uniforms. They might even be wearing pigtails and have plenty of badges that attest to what great kids they are. But you know that behind that sweet smile lurks a dark secret. The whole thing is just a ruse to get you to buy the very thing ……[Continue Reading]

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Every year, my husband’s birthday sneaks up on me. It comes 5 days after Christmas and in all the holiday rush, it inevitably gets pushed to the backburner. We run around like mad making sure everything is perfect for the holidays and I often don’t really give his birthday much thought until the 26th. And then….I panic. Because I have next to nothing for him and no plans in place and I feel like a terrible spouse. It’s not that ……[Continue Reading]
