Frozen Banana Ice Cream with Roasted Almond

It’s as deli­cious as it sounds and the best part of it is, you don’t have to feel guilty eat­ing it. My 2 year old daugh­ter devoured it, along with my hus­band. The top­ping is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s book “It’s All Good” and it’s awe­some even on its own.

French Apple Cake

I remem­ber when I was a kid liv­ing in Ger­many my mom would make a fresh­ly baked cake, whipped cream and a huge pot of cof­fee (milk for us kids) on Sun­day after­noons. She’d invite her friends/family and they would sit and talk for hours. Vis­i­tors would bring flow­ers or some­times even more cake or pas­tries from the local bak­ery. This is a tra­di­tion called “Kaf­feeklatsch”, which...

Mini Chocolate Cheesecake

For my choco­holics out there, I found anoth­er low calo­rie but rich tast­ing dessert from my new favorite Every­day Food Light Cook­book.  Each cheese­cake has only 147 calo­ries and 8 g of pro­tein.  If you like, you can use cot­tage cheese in place of  ricot­ta cheese.  I warn you now, you will not be able to stop at just one.   Ingre­di­ents: 2 cups non­fat ricot­ta...

Mock Chocolate Mousse

This choco­late mousse is deli­cious and so easy to make.  Did I men­tion it’s made with tofu? I rec­om­mend this recipe as a great gate­way into the world of tofu.  If you make this for your friends or fam­i­ly I guar­an­tee you they will not know that they are eat­ing tofu.  It’s creamy, choco­laty and full of healthy pro­tein.    I warn you in advance,  you...

Pistachio Kulfi Ice Cream

Kul­fi is a milk-based ice cream which comes from South Asia. I’ve had it at many Indi­an restau­rants and was intrigued to try it at home.  Nor­mal­ly Kul­fi is made with 100%  milk and takes hours to reduce, I have a short­cut by using a mix­ture of evap­o­rat­ed milk and milk.  Although choco­late ice cream is my favorite, this ice cream is a close sec­ond.  Kul­fi is just...

Chocolate Truffle Tart

This Choco­late Truf­fle Tart recipe is adapt­ed from Tes­sa Kiros’s book Falling Cloud­ber­ries.  It’s almost flour­less, very choco­laty, moist and deca­dent.  It’s so easy to whip up and is per­fect for when you have guests com­ing.  You’ll even have spare time to clean the house or apart­ment.  I guar­an­tee you they will love it and so will you. It’s a recipe you will...
