Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

April 18, 2010

Bananas are not my favourite fruit.  In fact, that is a major understatement.  I’ve disliked them since I was young.  I remember enjoying the banana yoghurt that my mom bought when I was little, but that was synthetic banana flavour, not the real stuff.  When it came to the peel-covered fruit, it’s texture and flavour […]

Brunswick Bean Stew for Daring Cooks

April 14, 2010

Daring challenges are always surprising.  Some take days upon days.  Some take hours.  Some are mostly about a new technique and flavour.  This is one of the latter ones.  It’s simple (especially if you make it the way I did), delicious, and the most pure form of comfort food.  This was also my transfer meal. […]

Gluten-Free Juice Pancakes

April 3, 2010

A common part of breakfast is a glass of juice, but have you ever considered adding the juice to your breakfast rather than having it alongside it?  One day when we were out of milk, I noticed that we had some juice so juice pancakes it was!  These aren’t your everyday pancakes though. A few […]

Cara Cara Orange Tian for Daring Bakers

March 27, 2010

I don’t know if this is technically a tian.  You see, I skipped a step.  One that kinda looked important.  I skipped the caramel.  The molten sugar that dances across the segments of orange.  The molten sugar that I just wasn’t feeling up to.  I made this on the 26th (also known as the first […]

Gluten-Free Seed Bread

March 25, 2010

Recipes are never constant.  Some are finicky and precise, others are free-flowing and intuitive.  Some are science-based and others are flavour-based.  This one is a big sticky mess of all of those.  It’s a recipe that came from one of my recipes.  It’s a recipe that will continue to grow.  It’s a bread.  It’s my […]

Gluten-Free Shortbread

March 21, 2010

The undeniably intoxicating smell of butter vaporizing wafts out of the oven to waltz with your nostrils.  As your brain connects the pieces, your stomach starts to whimper.  Emerging from the oven, your fingers are willed to grab but you wait.  They must cool.  Just a little bit. Eating these cookies, I wish that yum […]

Lime Chiffon Pie

March 18, 2010

St. Patrick’s Day is many things.  It can be a day to celebrate luck.  To have potatoes, Irish soda bread, or other things that represent Ireland.  It can be a green-covered day.  But that isn’t what St. Patrick’s Day is to me.  In fact, it is my brother’s birthday.  Which means that he is even […]

Gluten-Free Pie Crust

March 16, 2010

If you dig back into the depths of my archives, you’ll find a couple of pie crust recipes.  None were mine, they were just ones that I had used.  You see, in the couple of years before my diagnosis, I had become a pie girl.  My lovely aunt taught me the proper way to make […]

Vegetable Stock & Risotto for Daring Cooks

March 14, 2010

It’s that time of the month.  Daring Cooks time.  This month, the challenge was homemade stock and risotto.  I really enjoyed making both parts.  It was leisurely and delicious!  I’ve made risotto on multiple occasions, but this was my first time making stock and that was a real treat! The 2010 March Daring Cooks challenge […]
