Marbled Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake

[Here’s a visually impressive and truly decadent-tasting dessert to wow your guests. Marbled Pumpkin-Chocolate Cheesecake is also vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg free and yeast-free.

Flash in the Pan: Cranberry Ice Cream

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right). […]

Pumpkin Palooza: Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Brownies

Like everyone else in North America this time of year, I’m currently having a bit of a love affair with pumpkin (shhhh, don’t tell Kale). It all started with Almost Instant Pumpkin Porridge the other day, and reveals itself today with these vegan and gluten-free Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Brownies. Next up are some amazing homemade […]

Creamy and Comforting Chickpea Pasta Casserole for Attune Foods

Does this casserole bring back memories for you, too? Yes, it’s vegan, gluten-free and made of whole foods, but it’s modeled on one from my childhood. Although I’d been baking (with Mom’s help) since I was six, it wasn’t until my teens that I cooked my first savory dish. The first dinner I cooked for […]

Raw S’Mores (Grain Free, Vegan, Candida-Diet Friendly)

From what I can tell, S’mores are the quintessential “camp” food. What child hasn’t eaten a gooey S’mores bar? Well, dear readers, it’s True Confession time: I am that child who has never eaten a S’mores bar. (Does that make me S’less?) When I was a kid, summers were a fairly solitary affair. Early on, […]

Coconut Crusted Tofu Appetizer Bites with Creamy Green Curry Dipping Sauce

Summer really is the perfect time to throw a party, isn’t it? The weather welcomes outdoor events, quick preparation, colorful foods to adorn backyard tabletops, and people are just generally. . . . happier (okay, so I’m talking about me. In summer, I am generally happier).

Remembering Mom Today

For someone who’s been without her mother for quite a long time (my mum died in 1991), I tend to think about her rather a lot. Maybe it’s the little photo of her perched on my bedside table that I see every morning and evening. Maybe it’s the increasing resemblance to her face I spy […]

Potato-Free Rutabaga Hash Browns

When I was an undergrad, I submitted a short story to the university literary journal, which was edited by my beloved mentor, John Ditsky (I guess on some level, since we’d already become friends by then and he’d always encouraged my writing, I kind of “knew” he’d publish the story). It was a tale about […]

Granola-Topped Blueberry Pie Bars

[Seems to be “dessert week” on DDD! Here’s another healthy recipe for you today, the second in a trio of “good for you” desserts that can all be served up to those you love for Valentine’s Day: the first was Butterscotch Pudding that can improve heart health; and the final installment is coming up on […]

The Week in Review: New York, Sandy and Lots of Food

[Random Broadway photo.  Can you spy the person in the crowd wearing a squirrel costume?] So, where the heck have I been this past week? It feels like a long time since I last posted on this blog. In reality, it’s only been since last Thursday’s Wellness Weekend. Even though Wellness Weekend does occur each […]
