Summer means ice cream.  Peaches mean summertime. So peach ice cream seems to be the perfect thing to make to celebrate the last of summer. This recipe is not at all healthy, but it is simple and fresh tasting if nothing else. The Recipe Ingredients 2 c heavy whipping cream 5 ripe peaches, peeled 1/4… Continue reading Peach Ice Cream

Recipe-in-Progress: Honey-Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Sitting in the kitchen, staring at some lemons, too exhausted to do much else, I wondered what I should do with my day off.  Sleeping all day sounded good, but not very reasonable. Then I realized: I have 2 fresh lemons.  Why not make something special with them?  Even better, I also had poppy seeds,… Continue reading Recipe-in-Progress: Honey-Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Wedding Part I | The Wedding Cake

I decided to make my wedding cake, long before I became officially engaged.  Some girls dream about their giant, poofy wedding dress as soon as they are old enough to know what a dress is, but I was much more interested in planning the food aspect of the wedding. As I have mentioned several times,… Continue reading Wedding Part I | The Wedding Cake

This is rather similar to the Apricot-Pistachio Granola that I made several months ago.

Um, for as much guessing as… Continue reading Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, and Apricot Granola Bars

Chocolate Mousse Brownies {No Added-Sugar}

I had been intending to make this recipe for over a year. I could not find date paste.  After staring at the almond butters and coconut oils for a very long time, willing them to turn into date paste, an employee asked if she could help me.  Turned out she couldn’t.  No date paste.  And… Continue reading Chocolate Mousse Brownies {No Added-Sugar}

Blackberry Almond Cobbler {No Added Sugar}

I really want it to be summer. Warm weather, sunshine, and fresh berries… At least I can have a few fresh blackberries!  True, this recipe does kind of ruin the “fresh” aspect of fresh blackberries, but oh well.  I bought an extra pack of blackberries simply to enjoy fresh on my morning yogurt or oatmeal.… Continue reading Blackberry Almond Cobbler {No Added Sugar}
