I know that this post on How to Cook Long Grain Rice could seem silly to some, but I can assure you that there are many people out there who do not know what the best way to cook long grain rice is. I was one of them until I met my husband.
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.
After sharing with you the recipe for the perfect White Sandwich Bread, I am back with a homemade Jam recipe that would go really well with that bread, especially if toasted: Kumquat Jam.
I am so happy about sharing the recipe for this Low Fodmap Calamari Risotto with you! As you may know, I was born in Milan which is the place where risotto was first invented.
I love to have something sweet with my afternoon tea. I discovered this Low Fodmap Orange Quinoa Loaf a couple of months ago, and I liked it so much, that I made it many times ever since.
I love popcorn and I often make for the family when we stay home to watch a movie on the weekend. Popcorn makes a great snack, even for people with digestive problems.
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.
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.
Since starting the Low FODMAP diet, I am always looking for healthy snack ideas and these Salted Caramel Pepitas fit the bill perfectly.
Since starting with the low FODMAP diet, I am always looking for healthy ways to incorporate sweet treats into my diet and these Low Fodmap Blueberry Muffins are perfect to have for breakfast or as a snack at tea time.
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.
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’s recipe is very common in Italy, especially in the south. We often cook boiled vegetables with garlic and tomato to turn them into a flavoursome dish. This technique is called “ripassare”, which means to give the vegetables a second cooking.
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.
Oh cakes! I really love a moist slice of cake to go with my tea in the afternoon. This Italian Almond Carrot Cake is particularly good.
My readers often write to me to ask for some quick side dish ideas to serve with their Italian meals. I know, I don’t publish many side dishes on the site. I am not sure why as growing up, my mother would always serve at least one or two sides with our meal. Anyhow, these…
Have you ever had Pumpkin Jam? I personally love it and I also love the fact that it is really easy to make. This version also has a hint of freshly grated ginger to it, and I think it works really well with the pumpkin flavour. You can use this jam to make tarts, pies,…
Today I am going to share with you one of my favourite Japanese recipes: Onigiri – aka Japanese Rice Balls. As you know, in the last 2 years, my family and I have visited Japan twice (check out my 2015 post and my 2017 post). We literally love the country and its food! Not only,…
I know we have probably over eaten during these holidays, but if you are still craving cookies (I always am!), I have the perfect recipe for you! I made these Almond Shortbread Cookies for a friend who is gluten intolerant. I was actually going to make my Flourless Chocolate and Pear Cake (which is AMAZING!),…
I love today’s recipe. I am a huge fan of using edible flowers in cooking, especially in desserts and this Blueberry Lavender Syrup is a must-try recipe. It is very easy to make and the lavender adds a special touch to the (already delicious) blueberry syrup. Besides, I love how versatile this syrup is. You…
Today I am back with a traditional Italian recipe: Castagnaccio. It is a typically autumnal dessert found in the Tuscany, Liguria, Piedmont, and Emilia-Romagna regions of Italy. It is made from a batter of chestnut flour, water, extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts, and raisins, which is mixed until smooth and then baked. There are…
