Chocolate Mint Panna Cotta – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

low carb panna cotta recipe

Every year I buy mint for my garden, and every year the thing grows like crazy and I use almost none of it.  I appear to have these romantic notions about sipping Mojitos and Mint Juleps on the patio all summer long, perhaps in a long flowing dress and a large floppy hat, enjoying the […]

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 […]

Chocolate Almond Butter – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Chocolate Almond Butter @dreamaboutfood

The other day, my son expressed some serious boredom at his breakfast options.  I can’t say that I was particularly sympathetic to his plight, because there are about 5 different cereals (mostly gluten-free) on the go in our cupboard, and he could always make himself toast (gluten-free) instead.  He’s finally at an age where he […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter is my Achilles heel.  It’s my weakness, my downfall, my greatest temptation.  It is like crack to me, the more I have, the more I want.  An open jar of peanut butter in the cupboard is a cruel torment, and I often have to physically restrain myself from digging in a spoon for […]

Mocha Mousse – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low carb chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse makes me indescribably happy.  It’s been on my all-time favorite desserts list for, oh about as long as I’ve been eating dessert.  What’s not to love about it?  Airy, light texture that packs a rich, chocolate-y punch.  And for such an elegant dessert, it’s surprisingly easy to make.  The hardest part is waiting […]

This may be my final guest post for a while, and I can’t thank my blogging friends enough. Their generous help has allowed me to actually get ahead on recipes. Get ahead! I haven’t been ahead for so long now, I hardly know what to do! This gorgeous dessert is brought to you by the […]

I am pleased to bring you another guest post, this one by Anuradha of Baker Street.  Anuradha and I connected originally over Twitter.  When I was just barely starting out and didn’t know a tweet from a twit, she was kindly retweeting my posts and helping me gain traction in social media.  She’s a wonderfully […]

Chocolate Coconut Milk Pudding (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Chocolate+Coconut+Milk+Pudding+3

I’ve never really been much of a pudding person, it’s simply a dessert that’s never really been on my radar.  I love mousses and cheesecakes and other creamy, rich desserts, but pudding just has never been my thing.  I suppose it’s because I tend to associate it with the instant variety, the mostly tasteless goo […]

Raspberry Almond Butter Cups (Low Carb)

It is once again time for the Secret Recipe Club!  I actually had to skip it last month, simply due to all the other things going on, but I am glad to be back on the wagon with a post inspired by a blog I’d never visited before.  I was assigned to Eat Little Eat […]

Tiramisu Chocolate Cups (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

00111

Chocolate – it’s what all women really want, right? Well, to my surprise, I have found that this is not always the case. Through my ever-expanding blogging community, I have discovered that there is a segment of the female population that doesn’t really like chocolate. In fact, some of them even go so far as […]
