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. It’s […]

TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ICE CREAM

TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ICE CREAM

The first time I had toasted 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 is […]

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 of […]

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 flavoured […]

LEMON SEMIFREDDO

LEMON SEMIFREDDO

  My love of ice cream has now found a low carb version, and a new obsession. When I made this semifreddo, meaning semi-frozen it tasted great. It was sweet, like I had used sugar, tart from the lemons, and creamy. I’ve always said if […]

EASTER PIE

EASTER PIE

ORANGE VANILLA CHEESECAKE

  Other than sugar, cheesecake has lots of keto friendly ingredients. The eggs, butter, and cheese are all staples of a low carb diet. Mix in a little sweetener, and you have an everyday dessert. This cheesecake is sweet with hints of vanilla, orange, and […]

RASPBERRY ORANGE PARFAIT

RASPBERRY ORANGE PARFAIT

  When I want something sweet for breakfast during the week, I choose yogurt and berries. It can be made in advance and is easy to assemble. I sprinkle my favourite granola over it for a nutty yummy crunch. This can even be taken to […]
