Maple Glazed Blueberry Scones

Maple Glazed Blueberry Scones

Nevermind traditional bland blueberry scones….these take it up a notch with warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzled with a glaze made with sweet real Canadian maple syrup.

Lemon Thyme Tarts

Lemon Thyme Tarts

Creamy and lemon sharp, these tarts have a hint of thyme and almond, perfect for an early spring dessert.

The Best Vanilla Cake

The Best Vanilla Cake

This cake is deceivingly healthy; it contains no refined sugar, dairy, gluten or soy. You would never know though; the texture is amazing and melts in your mouth. I created this cake for a dinner party, but now it’s become a go-to for celebrating birthdays and anniversaries!

Raw Turmeric Donuts

Raw Turmeric Donuts

When I wanted something delicious but still nourishing and anti-inflammatory, I created this recipe. These “donuts” are extra sneaky because they are raw and contain the superfood turmeric. While the melted vegan chocolate makes these extra yummy, try them without: they are still amazing, and 100% raw vegan without it!

White Chocolate BBQ Pistachio Cherry Fudge

White Chocolate BBQ Pistachio Cherry Fudge

A family and friend favorite around the holidays. The tang of BBQ flavored pistachios blends well with the sweetness of dried cherries and smooth white chocolate to create a decadent treat that wows

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Fruit dumplings are popular throughout Central Europe, but this recipe is different than others in that it is made with farmer’s cheese. Strawberry dumplings are our family’s favorite, but this recipe can be used with Italian prune plums or small apricots. Though many would see this as a dessert, and it could be, these are more traditionally eaten at lunch. The best farmer’s cheese for this recipe is one that resembles feta, though if only a “pot style” farmer’s cheese is available, a little more flour could be added to make it work. For lunch, it serves two. For dessert, it could serve four.

Chocolate Walnut Meringue Cookies

Chocolate Walnut Meringue Cookies

This is a nutty meringue cookie with a hint of chocolate flavor. This cookie can last for weeks. Because of that, during WWII, my mother-in-law sent a large batch to Jewish friends that were sadly taken to a concentration camp. These were a favorite of my husband’s father. My mother-in-law spread the batter in a pan, then cut them into squares. I prefer to bake them in individual traditional cookie rounds.
