Romantic Rose Saffron Tiramisu

I tend to think of Valentine’s Day as a gim­micky com­mer­cial scam, how­ev­er, I’ll cel­e­brate LOVE any day of the week, and take any excuse to bake a roman­tic deca­dent dessert for the peo­ple I love.

Rose, Car­damom, and Pis­ta­chio are all thought of as nat­ur­al aphro­disi­acs, and are often mar­ried togeth­er in Mid­dle East­ern desserts. Last year I made a whim­si­cal Gluten-Free Rose Read more […]

Lemon Tart — Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, and Refined Sugar Free

Amy No Comments

  Noth­ing beats a fresh tangy lemon tart with rasp­ber­ries on a warm late Spring day! Okay, a hand­craft­ed ice cream cone might also be in the run­ning. But that sweet and sour pair of lemon and rasp­ber­ries gets me every time, what­ev­er form it takes. When I was liv­ing in Aus­tralia, I real­ized that lemon tarts are a thing. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t real­ly see them in the states.  In Oz, you can find a lemon tart in almost any cafe, to be delight­ful­ly paired with a fresh cup­pa, tea Read more […]

Flourless Chocolate Beetroot Cake -- like a Clean version of the sinful Red Velvet

Clean Chocolate Beetroot Cake

Amy No Comments

One of my favorite things about typ­i­cal Aussie food is that beet­root tends to show up in places you’d nev­er expect, like on burg­ers for instance. And as much as I love beets in savoury foods, I think my favorite Aussie instil­la­tion of beet­root is its star­ring role in choco­late cake! Say whattt!!!! I like to think of it as the clean ver­sion of Red Vel­vet Cake. The cooked beet­root adds a vel­vety rich and deep red char­ac­ter to this flour­less choco­late cake. Not to men­tion the added tex­ture and rich­ness Read more […]
