Sicilian Cookies with egg free and sugar free option

On my recent trip to Italy I had a chance to eat a bunch of gluten free cookies. I particularly fell in love with the Sicilian cookies. They were crisp on the outside and dense and chewy on the inside. So of course, I had to come home and try to recreate it. I searched online and developed my recipe based on this and this. These cookies are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and so delicious. I also experimented with egg and sugar free cookies, just in case someone with different dietary restrictions needed to try them. The result was soft with a texture of cake. Continue Reading

Chocolate Sparkle Cookies

Everything I love about a chocolate cookie is in this recipe. Crisp and sugary on the outside, and soft and fudgy in the center. I had these cookies for the first time a couple years ago in a Christmas cookie exchange and I have to say I immediately fell in love! I thought it would be fun to make a batch of these cookies myself. So I sent a quick message to Sally (my cookie exchange partner) if she could share her recipe with me, and within minutes she sent me the link to that recipe. It was a Thomas Haas recipe. If you always wanted to try his world famous chocolate sparkle cookies, I’m going to share the recipe with you today. Continue Reading

This is basically a plain cake soaked in orange syrup. Filled with whipped cream and fresh fruit and berries, nothing beats this stunner flan for the dessert table! This has been my 'go to' summer dessert to bring to parties. Hope you will enjoy the recipe as much as we do! Continue Reading

Paleo Blueberry Muffin Cake

I love to cook and enjoy the challenge of cooking for people - who by choice or by necessity have limited diets; food allergies and intolerances. Today's recipe is specially created for Emma (who is a Google+ friend) and many others who suffer from Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME) and Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). When Gill Andrews (also a google+ friend) shared a post, 'Who has a recipe for Emma?', I started racking my brain for something (especially dessert) that could be delicious for anyone and appropriate for Emma's diet. I came up with quick and effortless recipe, you're absolutely going to love. I used my blueberry buttermilk pound cake recipe as inspiration and switched things up to make it paleo friendly. I have made this cake two times now, and the whole family (plus several friends) love it. Continue Reading
