Recipe Collection: Chocolate Fudge Sauce

By | April 18, 2013

The other night I was planning to make some butterscotch sauce to go on my ice cream.  I’m craving ice cream lately — not for the sugar, but for the cream and the egg yolks (I also crave butter).  Thankfully I’m not craving chocolate much, which is a sign of magnesium deficiency (I craved it Read More

Originally posted on my blog: Gianelloni Family: Life As We Know It Our Top 5 Go-To Sweet Tooth Desserts.

By | February 7, 2013

This is a guest post by Letitia of Sometimes I Feel Like a Porcupine. Why have I been buying chocolate at the store!? Well, it’s because I’m lazy, but that’s not the point. The point is, chocolate is so easy to make at home and it can actually be kind of healthy! These are the Read More

Recipe Collection: Butterscotch Sauce

By | October 25, 2012

I have always loved butterscotch, but up until recently I was only familiar with the “butterscotch” that Dairy Queen served (no, I haven’t been there in a really long time).  I missed butterscotch.  I figured…I should be able to make this myself, right? Then there was one night where I really wanted a treat.  I’m Read More

Recipe Collection: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread, and Surprise!

By | December 3, 2009

Who doesn’t love pumpkin bread in the fall? It’s a great holiday treat. I made this bread today for Thanksgiving (it’s evening and most people have gone home now) and it was SO good that my mom wanted the recipe and some of the bread to take to work to share with her coworkers. She said, “I’m not usually into all the healthy cooking you do, but this bread is great!” Can’t even tell it’s gluten-free. :) Dairy free, too, unless you add cream cheese frosting! We didn’t, so I don’t have a recipe for that, but it’s really great just by itself.
