Gluten Free Old Fashioned Doughnuts

Yes folk, that’s right, gluten free old fashioned doughnuts! These Old Fashioned Doughnuts were actually really simple to make, and they tasted just like the donuts that you get fresh at the summer fairs, all covered in a cinnamon-sugar coating. I bought myself a donut cutter the other day when we were in the city. […]

Saskatoon Cheesecake Ice Cream

This is another ice cream recipe that I just came up with while playing around in the kitchen. I used Saskatoon berries, but you could use blueberries, strawberries, or cherries in place of the Saskatoon berries. This ice cream is rich & smooth, tasting just like your favorite cheesecake. I didn’t include graham wafer crumbs, […]

Orange Sorbet

I am still in the testing faze with my little ice cream maker. Since I was going through so much cream (and that can’t be good for the hips), I decided to give this sorbet a try. The flavour was unbelievable. It was so crisp, tangy, sweet, and well…orange. It definitely hit the spot on […]

Not something that I have to convert over to gluten-free, or figure out which additives will be necessary to make this dough behave the way regular, gluten-filled doughs would. I’ve found some great […]

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream

I love ice cream. What’s not to love? It is a nice sweet, cool treat, that isn’t too heavy, but can be created in an array of palate pleasing flavours. Pure pleasure. When I was diagnosed with celiacs disease, I was rather surprised to read that many ice creams contained wheat. Ugh, how could that […]

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

I have to admit. I have never heard that strawberries and balsamic vinegar going well together. I’m still fairly new at using balsamic vinegar, I’ve only used it a few times, and was very unsure about pairing it with the sweet, juicy strawberries. After reading Kevin’s entry about the Strawberry Rice pudding, I thought this […]

Fresh Fruit Trifle

These fresh fruit trifles have become an expected dessert when either my Mom or I are invited to a get together. You can use any flavour of cake or pudding, as well as any fresh fruit that is in season. It is simply a layered dessert with cake (can be made from a cake mix, […]
