‘Raw’ Avocado Icecream (recipe)

‘Raw’ Avocado Icecream (recipe)

MMMM avocado. I’ve had more than my fair share this month as an experimental week of Raw Eating became a gradual lifestyle change. I’ve always loved avocados. All they need is a little salt and black pepper at the peak of their ripeness to turn […]

Almond-Peach Muffins (recipe)

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)

These sablés are dangerous! No, it’s not because of their bittersweet chocolatey goodness. And no it’s not because of the chocolate chips strewn throughout that provide bursts of sweet creaminess. And no, it’s not even their brownie-like denseness that makes me issue this indictment. No, […]

Spiced Orange Mold (recipe)

Spiced Orange Mold (recipe)

Wow, this has really been a year of confronting, and overcoming, my culinary fears! Who knew I had so many? So far this year I have created soufflés, tackled British food, baked several successful cakes, and combined peanuts with chicken. You’d think at this point […]

Banana Coconut Custard (recipe)

Banana Coconut Custard (recipe)

A light simple dessert for a breezy summer afternoon. The banana and coconut flavours play off each other nicely, and the custard is mildly sweet, extremely soft, and surprisingly refreshing. I tried the coconut but warm and cold and prefered it warm. As I was […]

Mango Cake (recipe)

This month’s theme of Sugar High Friday is “tropical paradise“. Well seeing as I live on the very tropical island of Trinidad this should be a cinch! 🙂 Currently, mangoes are in season and we are buried under several bags of the good stuff (courtesy […]

Army Of Chocolate Biscotti

Like most food bloggers I have amassed a huge set of backlinks to recipes that I want to ‘try’ one day 🙂 In fact, I would not be hurt if no one believes me anymore when I comment on their blog that I have bookmarked […]

Sarina’s Chocolate Saturns & Ginger Trigs (recipes)

Spaced out by the title of this post? You should be! I’ve been bit by the Sci-Fi bug just in time for this month’s Blog Party 🙂 Inspired by The Happy Sorceress’ theme requirements, and some leftover ginger ‘hard candy’ that I had made on […]
