Sugar Free & Gluten Free Hot Fudge Frozen Yogurt Sundae, low carb

Do you love Hot Fudge Sundaes? So does my family but we didn't want the sugar!  Now we're loving these healthy sugar-free and gluten-free sundaes and we can have them whenever we want! 

For many years I tried to make us "healthy" sundaes with sugar-free ice cream and the sugar-free Hershey's syrup. I cringe when I think about the junk and chemicals that I fed my family, thinking that they were a healthier alternative to the higher calorie foods.


Homemade Sugar Free & Gluten Free Hot Fudge Yogurt Sundae

As I started reading labels and studying recipes, I learned more about what sugar, artificial sweeteners and GMO's do to our bodies. I now know how unhealthy our late night snack truly was. I also drank diet pop for many years and have given that up too. That was a tough one!

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Artisan Bread Boule

Would you like to make gorgeous gluten free Artisan bread? Today I'm going to show you how!

We all know that as gluten-free bakers we can't just whip up a classic recipe easily. We need to use a gluten-free formula that will perform correctly, but we can learn from the ancient techniques, and with the right combination of whole flours, starches and binders, make a bread that is very close and delicious.

I've been long distance baking with a friend in England who bakes with regular flour. I was inspired and a bit jealous after seeing her bread. I was determined to make a gluten-free artisan boule like she did and it was fun stepping up to the challenge.

So I put on my thinking cap and used what I've learned over the years baking bread. First of all, the classic recipe is all-purpose flour, salt, yeast, and water. I knew I needed to give the gluten-free bread structure to replicate the lack of gluten, so I used buckwheat and added some eggs. I liked the flavor of the buckwheat, but one of my testers said she wasn't fond of it. So the next time I made it, I used part buckwheat and part sorghum. My other tester loved it and said the dough was great to work with!

Skinny Gluten Free Low Glycemic Carrot Cake, grain free

I make this wonderful sugar free and gluten free carrot cake each year for our Easter celebration and it always comes out moist and delicious. It's a healthy and nutritious low carb that takes hardly any time at all to make. The secret is in the raisin sauce. Normally, I don't like the taste of raisins or dates in my baked goods, but oh my, it works perfectly and tastes incredible. To top it off, I used organic rainbow carrots from local growers and I think they made this cake even better.

Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Blueberry Coconut Muffins,sugar-free

Light fluffy Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Blueberry Coconut Muffins that are sugar-free and delicious!
Eating completely grain-free is one of my goals this year and let me tell you, it's not an easy one! I love muffins. Love love muffins.

My brain still wants that firm muffin texture, you know what I mean? So loving a grain-free muffin was hard to do until I made these beauties.

Easy Gluten-Free Tiramisu, xanthan free

One of the things about living gluten-free is that while cruising the internet you see a dessert that you haven't had for years and think darn, I want that! Then, at least in my case, you have to make it. Amazingly, it's easier than you would think to make many classic gluten-full recipes into gluten-free. 

Tiramisu, is an Italian dessert that appropriately means "pick me up" or "cheer me up", how cute is that? It's traditionally made with lady fingers dipped in coffee and layered with a mixture of mascarpone, raw egg yolks and sugar. Raw egg yolks? I don't think so...and another problem I faced was..

Gluten-free lady fingers cost an arm and a leg! So, I put on my thinking cap and made mine with my new easy Masa sponge cake instead. It turned out great. The cakes are thin, crisp on the edges, soft in the center and taste just as good as those pricey lady fingers.

Then I layered those beautiful cakes with a simple mixture of mascarpone and low fat cream cheese. No raw eggs needed here!

Romantic Flourless Dark Chocolate Cherry Cake, gluten free

Is there anything more romantic than chocolate? It's way up on my list, especially with a glass of red wine. Hubby and I love ending a cozy dinner with a glass of wine and a bit of dark chocolate.

After I made this gluten-free Flourless Dark Chocolate Cherry Cake recipe, we snuggled up with a glass of wine, a tiny slice of cake..and moaned.. It was so delicious that I think it needs a warning label!

This gluten-free Flourless Dark Chocolate Cherry Cake recipe is super easy make and seriously delicious. No gluten-free flour mix needed!

Flourless Chocolate cakes are great for a gluten free diet. No gluten free flour mix is needed! Just be sure that your chocolate is truly gluten free. Many chocolates, including some of the best from Switzerland, are manufactured in the same facility with wheat. Hard to believe, but sadly true.
