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

Recipe Collection : Simple Strawberry Cheesecake

By | April 11, 2013

By Jill, Editor of Modern Alternative Kitchen I love cheesecake. I love simple. I love a dessert that I can easily whip up while cooking a meal throughout the day. This gluten-free recipe fits all of those criteria and is so yummy! I am writing this the morning after I made it and having to Read More

Super Duper Easy Sweet Tooth Fixins’

By | March 20, 2013

Originally posted on my blog: Gianelloni Family: Life As We Know It Our Top 5 Go-To Sweet Tooth Desserts. When we first gave up refined white sugar and candy and candy bars and boxed cake mixes and cupcakes and pre-made icing and all those other “treats”, my husband went through serious withdrawals. I remember one Read More

{Guest Post} Recipe Collection: Chocolate Bars

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: Molasses Cookies

By | November 8, 2012

  These aren’t quite perfect.  I have been after a specific texture for years — these cookies that are thick and soft and chewy, sort of cake-like but not really.  I still can’t manage it.  But these are the closest I’ve come, and the flavor is amazing.  So, that’s why they are getting posted.  Cookies are 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: Soaked Apple Crisp

By | September 27, 2012

This is one of our favorite, quick, healthy breakfasts.  Really, breakfast!  Low- sugar, apples, soaked whole grains…what’s not to love?  Even better if you can serve it with a little real whipped cream or coconut cream.  Since I have my own apple pie filling canned, it takes five minutes at night to mix the ingredients Read More

Recipe Collection: Apple Pie Filling

By | September 20, 2012

I made apple pie filling two years ago in an entirely different way and I can no longer remember how.  I do remember I used honey instead of sucanat and that it wasn’t quite sweet enough.  I had only made about 10 pints, but it took us two years to eat them all.  Last year we Read More

Recipe Collection: Butter Cookies

By | April 12, 2012

So it was almost Easter and we’d had sort of a rough day.  I was really wanting to be more positive and hands-on, but I was just so tired (fighting off a cold — quite successfully, actually, as my only symptom was a slight sore throat in the evenings — but it made me very tired Read More

Recipe Collection: Refined-Sugar Free Vanilla Buttercream

By | April 5, 2012

Oh, buttercream frosting. Now, most people are under the impression that “real” buttercream includes these ingredients: butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, maybe a little milk.  It’s “real” because it uses butter instead of shortening.  Only, it isn’t.  That version is a “quick buttercream” and it is extremely high sugar: usually 4 – 5 cups per cup Read More

Recipe Collection: Chocolate Cake

By | March 29, 2012

We love chocolate cake with vanilla frosting (you’ll get the frosting next week).  I make chocolate cake or brownies a lot, frankly — at least compared to the other treats I make.  But this one was better than most — rich but not overpowering, sweet but not too sweet, and moist and yummy all around.
