I can’t believe it is almost Christmas already! It feels like yesterday that I put away last year’s Christmas decorations! However, I can’t wait for 2020 to finish… Let’s hope that the new year will be better for everyone! Anyhow, I won’t complain. At the end of the day, it is still my favourite time…
Christmas 2019 Round-Up
As Christmas is coming up, I thought it would be nice to put together a little Christmas 2019 Round-Up specifically for this special occasion.
Low Fodmap Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots
Who said side dishes have to be boring or time-consuming? These Low Fodmap Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots are neither!
Low Fodmap Dark Chocolate Macadamia Bark
Today I am going share with you a recipe that is perfect for this Holiday Season: Low Fodmap Dark Chocolate Macadamia Bark.
Low Fodmap Macadamia Cardamom Shortbread
After sharing with you my Gluten-free Chocolate Lavender Shortbread last week, today I am back with yet another delicious recipe for tender cookies: Low Fodmap Macadamia Cardamom Shortbread. These too are both low fodmap and gluten-free, because everyone deserves a treat this Holiday season.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Lavender Shortbread
Even though it’s summer here in Australia, I still like to bake at Christmas time. I especially like to bake cookies, but being Low Fodmap and lactose intolerant has made things a bit harder for me, especially since I absolutely LOVE shortbread.
Christmas 2018 Round Up
As Christmas is coming up, I thought it would be nice to put together a little Round-Up specifically for this special occasion.
Low Fodmap Soft Ginger Cookies
Can you believe that Christmas is just a little over a month away? I am already starting to feel like baking cookies! And these Low Fodmap Soft Ginger Cookies are exactly what I need!
These Almond Pralines are addictive. Believe me, you may not be able to stop eating them! In Italy, when I was little, they were sold by street vendors during Christmas time, or at local fêtes and markets.
I love choux pastries. I could eat 10 all by myself if left unattended! So, this Christmas I thought of trying my hands at making the in-famous Croquembouche, a traditional French dessert made with cream puffs filled with pastry cream and then dipped in caramel, and piled into a cone. For some reason, I had…
Chocolate Yule Log
As you know, I grew up in Milan, in Northern Italy. Milan is in a fantastic area, just in the middle of Europe, which made travelling very easy even in the pre-low-flight-era. My parents have always loved Paris, so we would go there at least once a year, usually before Christmas. So, I have had…
Pigs in a Blanket Wreath
I love pigs in a blanket… they would always be served for parties when I was growing up, so I guess they remind me of happy times. I also love how easy they are to make. So this Holiday Season, I thought of serving them in a special way and I made the most delicious…
Walnut Semifreddo with Walnut Cherry Brownies and Cherry Compote
Today I am partnering with Webster Ltd – the largest commercial producer of premium-quality walnuts in Australia – to present to you the ultimate Christmas dessert: Walnut Semifreddo with Walnut Cherry Brownies and Cherry Compote! Yes, you read that right and it tastes as decadent as it sounds! I wanted to create something that would…
I love Christmas themed food and I especially love Christmas themed cupcakes. After sharing my Christmas Tree Cupcakes a few days ago, today I am back with these Reindeer Cupcakes. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever? My girls absolutely adored them and the best part is, you can involve the kids while decorating them as…
Pizza Christmas Tree
I love puff pastry treats! They remind me of my childhood as they would always be part of all our festive spreads. This Pizza Christmas Tree is very easy and quick to make and it looks impressive. It would definitely make for a great appetiser idea to serve to family and friends this coming Christmas….
Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats
Even though it’s summer here in Australia, I still like to come up with fun Christmas projects to make with the kids… but because of the heat, I tend to prefer recipes that don’t necessarily require baking. These Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats fit the bill perfectly. They are very easy to make and will keep…
Christmas Tree Cupcakes
These Christmas Tree Cupcakes are so much fun to make! I baked chocolate cupcakes to use as the base of the tree and then topped them with green vanilla buttercream to make the tree. To decorate the “tree” you can use anything you like. I used mini chocolate chips of different colours, silver pearls and…
Edible Christmas Gifts 2017 Round Up
I can’t believe it is almost Christmas already! It feels like yesterday that I put away last year’s Christmas decorations! Anyhow, I won’t complain. At the end of the day, it is still my favourite time of the year. Minus the Christmas shopping, that is. I find that stressful… So, I often make Edible Christmas…
White Chocolate Almond Fudge
My husband adores both white chocolate and condensed milk (yes, he has a very sweet tooth!), so I am always looking at ways to use these ingredients together. This White Chocolate Almond Fudge was a huge success. I also liked the slight crunch that the crushed almonds added to it. This fudge makes for a…
Aromatic Olive Oil
This Aromatic Olive Oil is a great recipe to have. I personally love the mix of herbs, garlic and chilly it uses and I find is very versatile. You can use this oil for bruschetta, meat, fish, salads, and even as a simple pasta sauce! It also makes for a fantastic edible gift, so make…
White Chocolate Apricot Pistachio Bark
Don’t you just love chocolate bark? I had some leftover white chocolate and dried apricots, and I just couldn’t resist to urge to mix them up! This White Chocolate Apricot Pistachio Bark tastes delightful and it’s very quick and easy to make! I know bark is mainly a Christmas thing, but then again, it is…
Triple Chocolate Mousse
I made this Triple Chocolate Mousse for Christmas and it’s been sitting in my archives ever since! I can’t believe how quickly time flies! I love all mousse and small portion desserts, so this recipe is an absolute keeper. Besides, who can say no to chocolate? This dessert is made up of 2 different mousses…
