No-Bake Butter Pecan Bars, Vegan and Paleo

No-Bake Butternut Bars

Despite our warm weather the leaves are beginning to turn and the pro-and-anti Pumpkin Spice Latte factions are creating almost as much controversy as the election.

Thai Iced Tea Pops

Thai Iced Tea Pops

Have you ever had Thai Iced Tea in a restaurant?  I generally avoid sweet teas at all cost, but there is something about that multi-toned, creamy-sweet tea drink that I love.  The restaurant version is typically made with sweetened condensed milk and is pretty loaded with sugar, so it is more like a dessert than […]

Raspberry Semifreddo

Raspberry Semifreddo (Dairy free)

Semifreddo refers to any number of “semi-frozen” desserts, often with a custard base.  This version has a dairy-free custard made with coconut milk, and I used coconut sugar to add a caramel-type flavor to the finished dish.  This takes a few steps but it makes an impressive dessert for a summer party on the deck, […]
