Romantic Rose Saffron Tiramisu

Amy No Comments

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. Which is where this Rose Saf­fron Tiramisu comes in! This time of year, I just love cre­at­ing Mid­dle East­ern inspired LOVE cakes. 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 […]

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 […]

I wouldn’t be a true Amer­i­can if I didn’t love peanut but­ter and choco­late togeth­er! One of my favourite French trav­ellers was say­ing ‘so long’to Aus­tralia, and we were of course hav­ing a deli­cious din­ner par­ty to send her on her way. This par­tic­u­lar friend shares my deep love for food, espe­cial­ly dessert, so I want­ed to make her one last sweet treat. I had my eye on these Peanut But­ter Snack Cakes from My Name is Yeh for quite some time and was real­ly itch­ing to make a clean­er ver­sion. I wasn’t Read more […]

Back with a bang!! Blog­ging con­sis­tent con­tent while trav­el­ing has proved more than dif­fi­cult. It’s amaz­ing how dif­fer­ent my life has become with­out a fixed home and kitchen. While I miss the rou­tine and famil­iar­i­ty of my own kitchen, favorite cook­ing uten­sils, and a pre­dictable sched­ule, I wouldn’t change my lifestyle for any­thing! I am see­ing some of the most remote and beau­ti­ful nat­ur­al won­ders this world has to offer, meet­ing beau­ti­ful souls, and cre­at­ing deli­cious nat­ur­al food from local ingre­di­ents Read more […]

Seasonal Summer Clean Eats- Paleo Aprium Upside Down Cake

Aprium Upside Down Cake (Paleo)

Amy No Comments

This Sum­mer treat was inspired by Deb­o­rah Madison’s Sea­son­al Fruit Desserts.  My beau­ti­ful Aunt Nan­cy always finds fun ways to spoil me. She bought this for me at an adorable lit­tle book­store in down­town San­ta Cruz the last time we catered a retreat togeth­er. Insight Retreat Cen­ter has a beau­ti­ful orchard and gar­den and any time there is fresh fruit picked from the trees we turn it into some sort of fruit crum­ble or tart for the yogis. It just wouldn’t be Sum­mer with­out a warm bub­bly peach crisp Read more […]
