Peaches & Coconut Macarons

June is here – bring on the summer flavours – Fruits! These bright pink & orange macarons are filled with dairy free homemade peach curd and shredded coconut. The soft filling makes the cookies less crunchy and I’d like to give you a warning: they do seem to break easier – so be careful and make sure they are eaten within 2 days from filling. […]

Fruity Macarons

You may recognise these macarons from recently uploaded Facebook cover picture – I made them for Passover Seder desserts and they were a hit, especially the cranberry version. The dried cranberries have a very distinct sweet and sour taste, same as cranberry juice. Bits of dried cranberries give some texture and the flavours blend beautifully with pineapple & mango jam. I used OceanSpray Craisins, Biokia Cranberry Powder […]

Matzah-Coconut Truffles

It’s Passover and we’ve been eating plenty of Matzo over the last three days… And there’s more to come, so naturally it’s time to incorporate this special flatbread into desserts too! These easy to make matzah-coconut truffles are dairy free and have no added sugar. This time I chose to make them in cute little heart shaped foil chocolate liners without coating. You can also roll them […]

Sugar Free Hamantaschen Berry Pie

Just like last year, I was late baking Hamantash and sharing this a day after Purim. If you are done with hamantaschen for this year – save the recipe for next one. 😉 This is a sugar & dairy-free recipe without artificial sweeteners or margarine. The pastry is soft and has a light lemony flavour and berry filling is made out of frozen berries. Even though […]

Birthday Burger Macarons

“I don’t think of it as turning 30, it’s my 10th anniversary of my 20th birthday”. This someecards quote is pretty accurate for how I feel today. We celebrated with friends with a little pre-birthday barbecue over the weekend and I made these cute dairy free, gluten free (sugar bomb) burger(!) macarons for dessert. I got the idea from a Pinterest post I once stumbled […]

Seed Crispbread

My husband and I fell in love with seed crisp bread on our Christmas holidays when we got to taste my sister’s homemade version using her favourite recipe, that I’m still to try. This version is amended from a recipe found in Finnish recipe site Ruokala.net. Flourless crispbread, yummy on it’s one and delicious with spreadable or hard cheese and veggies.

Cherry Flavoured Marshmallows

So Happy to share my first marshmallow recipe, never thought making tasty candy would be this easy! Many recipes call for corn starch, I used only powdered sugar in coating and did not stress too much on coating the sides, which did leave them slightly sticky at first but after allowing them to sit for a while they aren’t sticky anymore. Though I literally used only […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream
Ice Cream

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe was inspired by vegan chocolate mousse recipes I’ve recently come across while looking for dairy free dessert ideas. I had some yolks to use and decided to make it to some ice cream, you could leave the yolks out and keep the recipe vegan, it will not be quite as creamy but would still be yummy served directly after churning.

Hello Kitty Macarons

This is the third time I make Hello Kitty macarons, I absolutely love making them, so much fun  and they are adored by both kids and adults. The past week me and my husband have been inspired by Japanese food and Hello Kitty being a global phenomenon from Japan seemed like a perfect treat for the end of the week. 🙂
