Almond Citrus Biscotti Thins

What is a better way to use up egg whites left from making shortcrust pastries that calls for egg yolks or when making custard? I have adapted the Pistachio Biscotti Thins Recipe from Epicurious.com to my Citrusy Almond Biscotti. I have used flaked Almonds with skin on for their health benefits and handling. Reduced the amount of sugar and baking times. Continue reading Almond Citrus Biscotti Thins

Honey Banana Loaf (GFDF)

What is GFDF? Gluten Free Dairy Free. Decided to try playing around with the Gluten Free Pound Cake recipe found on the back of Bob’s Red Mill GF Stone Ground Sorghum Flour since my previous trial of using a mix of the Sorghum Flour and some others for a GFDF starter was not very successful.

I came up with this ‘brownie’ as I did … Continue reading Breakfast Brownie (Vegan)

I much rather have nuts and/or dried fruits in them in order to fully enjoy the full health benefits of Quinoa. This recipe does not include any dried fruits and is not sweet. So, if you rather … Continue reading Almond Quinoa Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Zucchini Frittata

Here I was giving myself a pat on the back that no one has tried making a frittata with zucchini or courgette and telling myself I need to write this down before I forget. Eyes roll, someone’s already done it!  I still gave myself that invisible pat on the back anyway! Another great way to use up the other halves of the green & yellow … Continue reading Zucchini Frittata

Gluten & Dairy Free Banana Loaf

If you are trying to make something healthy for a special relative who has gluten and/or lactose intolerance, you might want to try this new recipe.  Do take note that this was not meant to be a nut-free recipe. It can be with the omission (leave out) of the walnuts and possibly the Soy Lecithin if you are concerned about possible allergies to soy. Continue reading Gluten & Dairy Free Banana Loaf
