Cheesecake Mousse

cheesecake mousse 6

  ^^ Pin for later! Here's an indulgence. A RICH lemon cheesecake mousse. Less firm than a cheesecake, yet a little thicker than mousse. The taste is fresh. The texture is thick and creamy. The feeling(s) after you finish one: satisfied, thankful, mesmerized, inspired, etc., etc.  Makes for an AMAZING summer dessert; maybe with a raspberry and a mint leaf to garnish if for a party? I originally found this recipe with Let's Dish. There's a link to her (Danelle's) page. Check out her version READ MORE

Healthy Fish Cakes

^^Don't forget to click here If there's anything that I love while cooking, it's versatility. I love discovering a new recipe and finding out that it can be used in numerous ways and can be tapered to taste. That is what this recipe is: a versatile and healthy alternative to deep fried fatty crab cakes. Let me be honest though, these are still fairly high in fat. However, they include healthy fats  and otherwise healthy ingredients. I suggest making these after a hard day's work, or perhaps READ MORE

^^Don't forget to click this button! Stop what you're doing! Whatever it is, this is more important. What I'm about to tell you will change your life. I've found the answer. To what you ask? Why Red Lobster has such a hate for people with gluten intolerances? Kind of. I've found the answer to the question, "HOW CAN I MAKE THEIR BISCUITS???" I originally found the recipe from Damn Delicious  who makes amazing Red Lobster copycat biscuits. I first made that recipe and decided to tweak just a READ MORE

FLATBREAD

How many times have you made something, but felt the need to brace the other party for what they were about to try? Haha, we all know that our food isn't what most people are used to. I'm known for slaying my recipe before it even touches they're lips. My boyfriend knows it all too well. "Adam, can you test this for me?", "Adam, I swear this one is better than the last" "Adam, *insert bio of the food here*". Same with my friends. I always feel that I have to say something in case it READ MORE

MILLET SANDWICH BREAD

The gluten free market has (thankfully) BOOMED in the past few years. I was diagnosed with celiac about ten years ago now, and let me tell you, there was basically nothing out there; and what WAS on the shelves all tasted like cardboard and was sky high in carbs/sugar. Mind you, at the time I was living in a small town and not in the city. Nevertheless, not a great time for a diabetic celiac. Today is MUCH different. Almost every grocery store has a gluten free section and recipes are just READ MORE

COCOA BREAD

*Disclosure* This is not a cake, nor is it sweet. It is actual bread. Happy baking!!   Alright friends, it's time to get real. Let's talk about this bread. It's a treat for sure but only in the sense that it's really good, gluten free bread. It's actually really good for you. Somehow it's dense, but fluffy with a high protein flour and whole rolled oats that don't mess up the texture - you can't even tell a little bit that they weren't blended. It isn't sweet, and it actually READ MORE

Blog Posts: Other considerations

This blog focuses on gluten free food, BUT I'm well aware that it's common for people with one sensitivity have another. Ex. I have Diabetes and Celiac because the diseases are autoimmune. Here's an example of why this section is in my blog: I actually have very few symptoms. In fact, when I was diagnosed I had no symptoms at all (found out through blood testing for diabetes). As a kid, it was VERY difficult for me to realize the consequences of me constantly consuming foods with gluten when I READ MORE

Flax Buns

I'm a student. I'm studying environmental science, and today was particularly stressful. It was my final math test! Yes, it's the middle of March but it was a condensed course. I studied all day, went into the exam and left with a sense of celebration and an incredible sense of relief. Then it hit me. This was my final math test of the semester! That means that the semester is almost over and then it will be SUMMER! HOT DOGS, HAMBURGERS, SUMMER FOOD! And that's what started my bread roll READ MORE
