This is the ultimate chocolate dessert. Rich and creamy, but not too heavy - it goes right to the heart of every chocolate fan. I adapted this recipe from my Nana's recipe and a recipe by Tyler Florence


This fabulous, gluten free gingerbread is full of flavor and has a nice spongy texture. Perfect for the holidays or a dessert for the family. We enjoy it with whipped cream or a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream. If you don't need it to be gluten free, simply replace the gluten free flour blend with your favorite regular flour (adapted from a King Arthur Flour recipe)

This beautiful, flavorful torte will make a rhubarb lover out of anyone. The bright rhubarb combines with the toasted almonds to create a delicious, satisfying cake. It's perfect for at home and/or for a dinner party.

Curried Rice

This terrific rice dish has been a favorite since I was a child. This recipe is adapted from my Aunt Ann's recipe. It's a delicious side dish with everything from chicken to pork to fish. I also love to top the leftover rice with a couple of fried eggs- dreamy!

This is a classic potato dish made with cream, cheese, garlic and a touch of nutmeg. It's a perfect holiday side dish and a fabulous accompaniment to ham, turkey and especially a Beef Tenderloin (see recipe on the blog)

Vanilla Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust

This is a delicious dessert that, like all the recipes on this blog, just happens to be gluten free. The rich, creamy cheesecake works beautifully with the gingery crust. It's a perfect holiday treat on your family table or at a party. (This recipe is adapted from The Ultimate Cheeesecake by Tyler Florence)

Great Gravy

Gravy can be anxiety provoking - particularly on a big day like Thanksgiving. This fantastic recipe creates a smooth, flavorful gravy every time. Use it with turkey, beef, pork or chicken - as you'll see it's all about the roux and the ratios.
