Gluten Free Orange Cake

Gluten Free Orange Cake

This is one of my favourite guilt free treats. It’s also a high protein recipe and can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings once it’s baked. It’s one of the easiest cakes you will ever make. It can even be done with a hand whisk. This recipe can also be made with lemons.

Ravioli with Walnut Sauce

Ravioli with Walnut Sauce

A very easy dish to assemble and very pretty on the plate. The walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, and crispy sage combine for a punch of flavor and something out of the ordinary. You can increase or decrease the amount of red pepper flakes, salt, and Parmesan cheese as desired. This is also a great side pasta course to serve 8 but increase the walnut halves for the top garnish to 8.

Cran+Berry Tart

Cran+Berry Tart

Fresh, healthy, and oh-so-eye appealing, this Cran + Berry Tart is a delightful twist on a fine French pastry dessert that delivers a blast of sweet-yet-tart berry goodness in every flavor-explosive bite!

Charming Chicken Stew

Charming Chicken Stew

This French inspired chicken stew comes together quickly for a satisfying, warm and comforting dish. Serve over rice or roasted potatoes with a side of your favorite green vegetable for an easy, and most definitely elegant, meal. Alternately, keep it light with a simple and delicious slice of crusty sourdough.

Chocolate Raspberry Swiss Roll

Chocolate Raspberry Swiss Roll

I am always intrigued by layers in the cake and the nice even swirls of the sponge in a swiss roll. So I wanted to master a no-fail recipe that gives perfect swirls every time. I am an everything chocolate person and my husband (my guinea-pig) loves fruity flavors, so I baked this cake for our second anniversary.

“Quiche Lorraine” Scones

“Quiche Lorraine” Scones

All the flavor of Quiche Lorraine in easy to make flaky scones. I developed this over the summer while I was looking for a way to use up some bacon.

Potato Quiche

Potato Quiche

A very basic dough and potatoes meal with a touch of bacon. A very good choice for lunch with a green salad.
