BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

  As with most banana muffin or bread recipes, it starts with you having a bunch of bananas sitting on your counter that you were going to eat or make a smoothie with. But the days went on and now they’re black so your only […]

GREEN SMOOTHIE

GREEN SMOOTHIE

  Smoothies are my favourite everyday dessert. I use kefir for its probiotic properties. It’s a fermented milk drink that has lots of good bacteria. Coconut oil has so many health benefits and when I first heard of adding it to a smoothie, I was […]

FROZEN BERRIES WITH ICE WINE CHOCOLATE

FROZEN BERRIES WITH ICE WINE CHOCOLATE

  The first time I had frozen berries with white hot chocolate was in NYC with my Swedish friends. It was New Years Eve and we were at this Swedish restaurant. When they told me it’s berries and white chocolate I wasn’t overly impressed. But […]

GREEN TEA ICE CREAM

GREEN TEA ICE CREAM

  I love ice cream, good ice cream that is. In the grocery store I find that Häagan daz is my favourite but we don’t get that many flavours or the new flavours. One of my favourites from them was the green tea vanilla honey. […]

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

  I went to a gala and they were serving raspberry rose gelato. It was amazing and of course the first thing that came to my mind was that I have to make this at home. I used my quick no-churn ice cream base and […]

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

  I love jams with berries. Whenever I’m in the grocery store I see all these wonderful jams made with fresh local berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite […]

PUMPKIN GINGER SPICE ICE BOX CAKE

PUMPKIN GINGER SPICE ICE BOX CAKE

  My cousin hosted Thanksgiving this year so my only task was to make dessert. Instead of doing some sort of pie, I wanted to try something different. Pumpkin is the preferred flavour for desserts this time of year, so I made an icebox cake. […]

TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ICE CREAM

TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ICE CREAM

  The first time I had roasted marshmallow ice cream was from Gregg’s in Toronto. It instantly became my favourite ice cream. I made this quick no-churn recipe and it is the best toasted marshmallow ice cream I’ve had. It’s smooth and creamy. The texture […]

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

  To me, granola bars are the perfect snack. They carry well, are sweet and tasty, and you can make a batch of them and they last for two weeks in the fridge. I always have one in my bag, and I keep a container […]

ALMOND ICE CREAM

ALMOND ICE CREAM

  I don’t know what it is about ice creams. When I see a new flavour in the store I get excited and must buy it. I saw almond kulfi which I have had in the past and love. It’s an Indian style ice cream […]
