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, […]

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 […]

It really is a take on the flourless peanut butter cookie, making it more like a brownie bar. VERY delicious, my whole family enjoyed it. Great for anyone, not just those with a gluten […]

Merry Meringues

These light-as-air cookies were a real treat for us. What else does one do with 4 leftover egg whites, but make meringue cookies! They were crunchy on the outside & chewy in the center. The cookies sprinkled with Jello flavoured powder actually had a cotton candy taste to them. Will definitely make these again!   […]

Gluten Free Pastry Cream/Vanilla Pudding

I have recently received my first (yes, there will be more!) shipment of beautiful vanilla beans. I have watched the chefs on The Food Network use vanilla beans for years, and I have always wanted to try them. I love the taste of vanilla, but not for $2.50/bean. EEK! That is the price of them […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes were SOOOO good! They were as easy and quick to make as a boxed cake mix. Although I have never tried a gluten free boxed cake mix ($5.50/box, are you kidding??), I am SURE that these were way better than a box could give you. They were light, fluffy, super chocolatey, and a […]
