Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

My husband who happily eats everything without compliant, recently pointed out that I tend to gravitate to cheesecake when making dessert for dinner parties or holidays.  “just an observation, that’s all” he said, which is code for please make more, he does really love any type of dessert. When entertaining, any steps you can accomplish… Continue reading

Ginger Cardamon Spice Loaf

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

My daughter regularly texts me obscure grocery items that she wants purchased – by me of course.  Last month it was: matcha powder, cocoa nibs, jackfruit and cardamon pods.  All with the intention of creating something she most likely has seen on Pinterest. Most of the time these specialty items are used once, then languish in the… Continue reading

Pumpkin Spice Almond Bread

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

Although fall has arrived, I feel it is not my job to bombard you with all things pumpkin.  We can thank Starbucks for starting the Pumpkin Latte craze.  Although it certainly doesn’t stop there, at the grocery store today I spotted Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal, Pumpkin Spice Cheerio’s, Lucy’s Pumpkin Patch Cookies, I draw the… Continue reading

Vegan Blueberry “Cheesecake”

I have posted a lot of cheesecake here – mainly because I love them,  also because you can adapt them to so many occasions.  Dinner party?  This Meyer Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake or Key Lime Cheesecake marry well with any menu. Holiday? Try this Pumpkin Pie Ricotta Cheesecake or equally as festive Pumpkin Cheesecake with Candied Nut… Continue reading

Cherry Banana Bread with Toasted Almonds

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

  Today, I had planned on sharing a chicken and wild rice soup recipe, however I didn’t love the picture I captured at all – that happens, quite a bit judging by all the snaps sitting on my desktop screen that probably won’t get imported.   Instead, seeing that it’s well into the new year,… Continue reading

Key Lime Ricotta Cheesecake

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

I am in the fortunate situation of celebrating Thanksgiving twice every year.  Once in October with my Canadian side, and again in November with all my American friends and family. Some years it is exactly the same dinner both times.  Other years, we vary it slightly to reflect the food allergies or aversions of our… Continue reading

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

There are a few gluten-free baked items that really intimidate me.  Croissants, Angle Food Cake and Cinnamon Rolls, for some reason they have always seemed daunting to me.  And, today I have finally ticked one off the list. Gluten Free Cinnamon Buns –  as it turns out, not very hard to make at all.  In fact… Continue reading

Banana Crumb Cake with Chocolate Almond Streusel

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

While my kitchen may be awash in various types of cookbooks, I rarely use them as intended.  For me, they are more of a resource.  I flip through the pages, linger over the fabulous photos, looking for inspiration rather than instruction — most days. However,  this recipe that Ina Garten created is cake perfection.  I followed the instructions… Continue reading

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

Ever notice that food bloggers, specifically gluten free ones, fall into a few categories? There are some that post at least one week before major Holidays, with all the hard to execute Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter foods. Many a Holiday dinner has been successful thanks to them. There are some that post a heck of a… Continue reading

Coconut Loaf with Buttermilk and Browned Butter

Posted in Dessert, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

Yesterday, I had a bit of time to myself to catch up on a few food blogs that I follow. I read them sometimes for inspiration, other times for validation. This time was just purely recreational. Hot cup of tea at the ready, I settled down at my computer. Drooling over all the beautiful photos…. Continue reading
