A New Recipe ~ Loving the light feel and creamy texture of this cheesecake with addictive chocolate-peanut flavors.
A smooth and decadent Cheesecake lightened up with Cottage Cheese only – no cream cheese here! And it’s gluten free.
The crust is made from my Chocolate Peanut Biscotti (see recipe) – with a little melted butter for binding.
Honey Peanuts are a snap to make – top the cake’s edges with them – yum!
Press on each recipe title.
I grind these Biscotti for the crust of the cheesecake!
Decadent and Delicious! These bake up crispy with a deep-chocolate flavor. Feel free to use any nuts you like. Gluten Free.. you would never guess.
Use the Honey peanuts to garnish the cheesecake!
Delicious Honey Peanuts coated last minute with a little sugar. Simple and fun to make!

Easier than pie… Pecan Pie that is!
The Ultimate Pick-Up Bar ~ Perfect for the Holidays!
A press-in shortbread crust with a pour-on-top filling enriched with a crunchy pecan topping. Delish!
The perfect ending to a holiday meal (Thanksgiving!) Spiced, beautiful pears swimming in a ruby syrup with a creamy zabaglione custard.
This is one of those easy recipes that is great for entertaining because the pears turn a gorgeous ruby color when poached, creating a spectacular presentation. Easily can make ahead of time.
This easy to prepare fall dessert is bursting with harvest flavors: fruit is blanketed with a crisp cinnamon, pecan and oat layer.
Treat your company to a healthier dessert – and your kitchen will smell of warm, comforting flavors.
Tastes like an apple crumb pie in a bar! Perfect for your Thanksgiving dessert buffet – not too sweet with a touch of warm spices.
THE MIXTURE (DOUGH) DOUBLES AS A TOPPING. OATMEAL, ALMONDS AND WALNUTS IN THE CRUST/TOPPING ADDS A HEALTHY CONTENT AND FIBER.
For an extra layer of “yum” top the cake with my Caramelized Apples and Caramel Drizzle. OR – top vanilla bean ice cream with it! (See recipe for my vegan ice cream below!)
Need a fabulous Gluten Free + Vegan dessert?
A moist cake with warm spices topped with Caramelized Apple Slices and baked with Fine Almond Flour. I top it with a drizzle of Vanilla Bean Rum Glaze. A healthy new alternative recipe.
This recipe is Vegan, Non-Dairy and naturally Gluten Free… and irresistible! The ingredients are super-simple – Coconut Milk and Pure Cane Sugar are the main components. For flavoring, add vanilla bean gel (I’ll tell you where to find it in the recipe), crystallized ginger, pumpkin spices, coconut oil and a pinch of sea salt (try pink himalayan). Serve with everything!!
A lightened-up vision of a favorite dessert. You won’t believe the texture and flavor of the Ice Milk… and it’s not loaded with sugar!
A classic pie which is not too sweet due to the natural flavors of the apple cider reduction in the filling. Try a shortbread crust; easy to prepare with a tender, melt-in-your-mouth-texture. Makes one 9″ pie or 4 -5″ tarts.
These delectable, creamy truffles are truly all-natural with Fresh Mint from my garden. Coconut Milk swaps in for heavy cream for a lighter, vegan treat. Cocao nibs adds a little crunch. Have to have some chocolate dessert at Thanksgiving!
The nutty taste of the toasted sesame seeds (benne), a hint of sea salt, and the caramel sweet flavor from the coconut brown sugar sugar – a crunchy melange of flavors in these easy to prepare treats… low in fat too!
These cookies are light and crispy and pair well with all your holiday desserts.
From my kitchen to yours ~ enjoy something sweet and homemade this Thanksgiving.
