I love fudge, but since going lactose-free, it has been a bit difficult to find a good recipe for it. The one I used to make all the time is amazing, but it’s made with condensed milk, which has become a no-no for me.
I am so excited about today’s recipe: Malbec Ice Cream. Malbec is a red wine quality, typical from the north of Argentina. So, yes… it’s red wine ice cream everyone! And it tastes amazing!
When it’s tea time, I often feel the need for a quick snack, better if of the sweet kind. Following the Low Fodmap diet can make things hard, especially since I am having trouble with fructose.
I looooove cookies and the crunchier the better. I have to say that cookies in Italy are usually always crunchy. The Italian name for cookies is biscotti after all, and that means “cooked twice”.
There are times when only a chocolate brownie can satisfy your craving for sweets. As I am much more careful about what I eat since starting the low FODMAP diet, I am not having as many sweets as I used to.
If you are looking for a delicious recipe with a difference, you have found it! Here is my Orange Polenta Cake with Grand Marnier for you to enjoy.

Today I am sharing with you the recipe for a delicious Low FODMAP Lemon Cake. FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyol) is a term that describes a group of foods that contain indigestible nutrients that feed bacteria in the gut.
I love these Italian Red Wine Doughnut Cookies. I know it can seem quite strange to make sweet cookies with wine, but it is actually very common in Italy.
Today, I am going to share a French recipe that I often make at home: Blueberry Clafoutis. It is made with simple, pantry staples, that I am sure you already have at home!
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.
Today I am going to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Bread. This is a delicious breakfast treat and a great alternative to the more traditional banana bread recipes that you can find on my site.
After making my Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I had some hazelnut pulp left and you know I love to re-use leftovers, don’t you? I dug and dug and I found a great recipe for it: Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles.
With Easter just around the corner, I obviously had to share a traditional Italian Easter recipe! So, today I will show you how to make Easter Taralli.
I love muffins, especially for breakfast. I haven’t grown up eating them, as in Italy they are not something you would find easily when I was little. Italians usually have coffee or cappuccino with a croissant for breakfast, especially when eating out.
Are you cooking something special for this St. Patrick’s Day? I got you covered! These Green Buttercream Cookies are so easy to make and look really cute. They would be perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day themed tea party.
Since moving to Australia I have fallen in love with mangoes. I had eaten them already during holidays outside of Europe (Indian mangoes are amazing!), but mangoes in Italy are… well… pretty tasteless.
These days, Indians celebrate Holi, the festival of spring, also known as the festival of colours. During this time, people play, chase and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water, indoors and out on the streets. People visit family and friends to throw colours at each other and share lots of yummy food.
Today’s recipe is yet another vegan dessert: Vegan Mango Bundt Cake. Since discovering that I am lactose intolerant, I have been experimenting quite a bit with vegan desserts.
Today I’d like to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Cardamom Muffins. They are moist and delicious muffins that make for the perfect breakfast (or tea time treat, why not?).
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras or Carnevale as we call it in Italy. Carnevale is a big event in Italy – kids even stay home from school! Everyone dresses up for almost a week and goes on parades with all kinds of floats.
I made these Peacock Cupcakes as part of my daughter’s 8th birthday celebrations. She had an India-themed party, so after making Mehndi Cupcakes and an Indian Cake, I thought to make Peacock Cupcakes to take to school for her classmates.
