Summer’s End Ice Cream Round Up


Are you as startled as I am that it is already September 1st? Where did the summer go? I remember looking forward to it so much, to the heat and humidity and all that comes along with that. Trips to the beach and running through the sprinklers, the sound of cicadas, cooking food on the […]

Frozen Citrus Mousse (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


You may have heard that we had a hurricane here in the Boston area over the weekend. Except we didn’t, really. By the time Irene arrived in Beantown, she was considerably weakened and downgraded to a still-potentially dangerous tropical storm. And for those of us who don’t live in seashore communities, her effects were pretty […]

Nutella Swirl Cheesecake Ice Cream (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


I’m convinced that Nutella should come with a warning label, something along the lines of “Can become addictive if consumed too frequently”. Really, this unassuming chocolate-hazelnut spread is naughty, naughty stuff. I have seen many a food blogger come under its thrall and be so utterly obsessed with it that they can’t seem to make […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


I’ve had an ice cream maker for a long time. Let’s see now. I believe I received it for Christmas during my second year of graduate school, so that would be 1998. Which means that it has been in my possession for almost 13 years. But I have only made really good use of the […]

Matcha Frozen Yogurt Pops (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


Once upon a time, in a far away land called Trader Joe’s, there was a flavour of yogurt that was favoured above all other flavours. At least, it was favoured by a young Trader Joe’s fan. It was one of a trio of “coffeehouse” flavours. There was the Caffe Latte, and the Mocha – these […]

Rum-Laced Toasted Coconut Ice Cream (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Yeah, me neither, until I saw it recently on several other blogs. As always, I am in the dark about these things. There needs to be a centralized database of food holidays and celebrations for us poor, unaware bloggers. It does make a lot of […]

Red, White and Blue Yogurt Pops (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


Okay, so they are more pink, white and purple than red, white and blue. But when it comes to patriotism, surely it’s the thought that counts. I am fairly certain that the forefathers of this country didn’t expect us to be rendering our allegiances in berries and yogurt, or cake, or any food for that […]

Cashew Turtle Ice Cream Pie (Low Carb)


Being the bad foodblogger that I am, I did not plan ahead with a Father’s Day post to help guide my readers in their food choices for their celebrations. The truth is, we had such a busy weekend that I hardly knew myself what I was going to cook and make. We don’t do much […]

Chocolate Stout Sorbet (Low Carb)


Raise your hand if you like beer. Raise your hand if you like chocolate. Okay, now raise your hand if you like beer and chocolate together. Wow, I saw a lot of hands go down in the audience. I saw a lot of hesitant fluttering of hands, unsure of whether to stay up or not. […]

Rhubarb Sorbet (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


It’s rhubarb season! You have no idea how excited this makes me. I am ridiculously in love with the taste of rhubarb. It is a lifelong love, stemming from my childhood on a farm in southern Ontario where we had a large patch of the leafy vegetable. My mother had several wonderful rhubarb recipes, and […]
