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 […]

Lemon Meringue Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love lemon meringue pie? Well…I’m not that keen of it. Don’t get me wrong, I like the lemon filling, I’m just not a fan of pie crust. It’s merely a vehicle for the pie filling, right?? But, I do love Lemon Meringue Ice Cream. This Lemon Meringue Ice Cream is so creamy and […]

Fresh Crustless Strawberry Pie

Being diagnosed with celiac disease not that long ago, I’ve been on the look out for recipes that are naturally gluten free.

I’ve found some great […]

After reading Kevin’s entry about the Strawberry Rice pudding, I thought this […]

Cool off with Frozen Fudge Pops

Don’t they just melt your heart? Awww…here is a picture of my sweet little angels, after their bath, enjoying a nice cold Fudge Pop to end the day. These fudge pops are super simple to make, but taste great! Since they use a package of instant pudding mix, the variety of flavours that you can […]

Mocha Mousse Torte (flourless)

Since going gluten free nearly 2 1/2 months ago, I have enjoyed finding recipes that are naturally gluten free. Not things that need rice flour, xanthan gum, or unflavoured gelatin. It is easy to find main dish recipes that are gluten free, because after all, your raw veggies and unprocessed meat from the local butcher […]

Homemade ‘Magic Shell’ Ice Cream Topping

Why pay the high prices at the grocery store when you can make your own hardening chocolate ice cream topping at home. It only takes a few minutes, with ingredients that you already have on hand. A nice little treat for those hot summer nights. This amount made enough to top 4 ice creams for […]
