After watching this video recipe on Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake I have been wanting to try it. Unfortunately, I had no avocado for the frosting, nor raspberries for the filling. Darn! I tried a different spin on things and made a smaller portion of what I really would like to call “guilt-free” raw fudge. This … Continue reading Gluten Free Raw Fudge
I adjusted my sinfully rich chocolate ice cream recipe to this much healthier version, even higher in protein, plus tons of fiber, all without the refined sugar and cow’s milk though it does contain eggs. It is still very delicious for such a healthy ice cream recipe. You can make chocolate, raw almond milk ice … Continue reading Chocolate Almond Milk Ice Cream Recipe

Those who cannot tolerate corn should be aware that xanthan gum is derived from corn, though some manufacturers state that the corn sugars are removed in processing. You … Continue reading Gluten Free Carrot Cake (Sugar-Free)
I just posted my Chocolate Potato Truffles Recipe and was pleasantly surprised to find the texture of the filling to be very similar to the traditional ricotta cannoli filling, but this filling contains walnuts. If you’re looking for different cannoli filings, this is a great alternative! Often one adds chopped pistachio nuts at the ends … Continue reading Different Cannoli Filling – with a Twist
I was watching “Paula’s Home Cooking” on The Food Network channel the other day, and Paula showed how to make Chocolate Covered Potato Eggs (for Easter). Her recipe had a white filling and inspired this chocolate truffle recipe with walnuts I just created. My favorite See’s Easter egg has a chocolate cream and walnut filling, … Continue reading Healthy Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles
I decided to play around with a new gluten free flourless brownie recipe. Instead of using almond meal flour I used ground walnuts, which I ground in my food processor. I topped it off with my chocolate ganache that I use on my cheesecake. This recipe is flourless, rich and chocolaty! Enjoy!
Cannoli is a Sicilian dessert consisting of a crispy tube shell filled with sweet ricotta cheese filling. My aunt would make several variations for special occasions.
