Mini Maple Pumpkin Cheesecakes – Low Carb and Gluten Free

I heart dessert...and these Mini Maple Pumpkin Cheesecakes!

Technically, so many things went wrong with this recipe, it’s amazing they turned out alright.  I must have been tired when I was making these little cakes, because I felt clumsy and stupid and like I was making error after error.  I had this new mini cheesecake pan from Norpro that I’d been dying to […]

Recipe Redo – Peanut Butter Cream-Filled Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cream Filled Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

There is nothing in the world I like better than taking a conventional sugar and flour recipe and remaking it to be low carb and gluten-free.  If I am successful, nothing gives me greater satisfaction.  And more often than not these days, I am successful.  But that wasn’t always the case.  When I started this […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Mug Cake – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb, Gluten-Free Mug Cake

Sometimes a girl just wants cake.  Wait, let me rephrase that.  Sometimes a girl just needs cake.  Sweet, warm chocolatey cake, the ultimate in comfort foods.  Bonus points if it’s actually quite healthy but doesn’t taste even remotely like it.  Extra bonus points if it takes all of, say, 15 minutes to make.  No, I […]

Patriotic Whoopie Pies (Low Carb and Gluten-Free) and a Wilton Giveaway

Star Whoopie Pies

Americans come up with best names for their sweets and treats. Think about it. Snickerdoodles. Ding Dongs. Whoopie Pies. Let’s face it, those words are as much fun to say as the food is to eat. Although I’ve never had a ding dong and I am not about to start now. And the first time […]

Matcha Almond Tea Cake (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Matcha Swirl Bread 3

I would say that green tea is definitely an acquired taste. I suppose the same can be said for black tea and coffee and other bitter hot beverages. But I grew up drinking those and only came around to green tea slowly. I remember some awful cups of it served at mediocre Chinese restaurants in […]

If I told you this was a Father’s Day post, you might think I was extremely well organized and ahead of the game. I mean, a week and a half ahead, and Carolyn’s already posting Father’s Day ideas? That girl is on the ball! I wish I was as organized as Carolyn, she really leads […]

As you read this, I am attending my first ever food blogging conference. Not only am I attending, but I will actually be presenting as well. Nourished Food Blogger Conference is the first of its kind, a unique conference devoted to gluten and allergen-free bloggers. And in my case, those who are somewhat carb-averse too. […]

Mini Rum Pecan Cupcakes (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Rum+Pecan+Cupcakes+3

So, I have probably bragged enough about how my husband surprised me a few weeks ago with a night away from the kids.  I won’t keep blathering on about it, except to tell you how this recipe was inspired by that little interlude.  We had dinner at a wonderful place in Boston’s South End called […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Pin ItI would count my 39th birthday as one of my all-time favourite birthdays. For one thing, I can still say I am in my thirties without lying through my teeth…yet. For another, I had a visit from my father over my birthday weekend, and spending time with family these days to me always counts […]
