This is the longest I’ve stayed away from blogging. I owe you, my readers an update of what’s been happening. I’m thankful for those of you who are concern about my silence. I do not usually write about my personal life on this food blog but it’s time I ask for support and share my story. Maybe my story might share some light with others that they are not alone in their journey, whatever it may be. Continue Reading →
The best Flourless Chocolate Cake ever – decadent rich chocolate flavor with an airy souffle-like texture! Healthy & impressive dessert. Gluten, grain, nut & dairy free.
If you have not noticed by now, there is only one whole cake recipe here. There are a handful of baking recipes but I try not to venture into cakes. Baking is not one of my strengths when it comes to inventing healthy, gluten and/or dairy free recipes, and every time the cake ended up being the casualty because I have forgotten baking is not easy.
Flourless chocolate cake has been on my baking list for a while (having pinned a dozen of flourless chocolate cake recipes). I was all pumped up to make one for the year end celebration with my awesome new Tefal Kitchen Machine and having dreamt about blogging how easy the recipe was and how amazing the cake is.

Make these Almond Cranberry Salted Chocolate Bark. Easy beautiful edible gifts in 10 minutes.
It’s that time of year again – gifting time! I do not celebrate Christmas, I just enjoy joining in the joy of the year end festivities and gifting. I’m not very good at gift shopping – I always struggle to think of what to get someone & the frugal me dislike the thought my gift being stored away and never used.
I personally think the best gifts are edible ones. However most of the time, the edible gifts are unhealthy commercial sweets or cookies. One or two of these is OK, too much of it will make you feel unhealthy. The good news is there are many healthy and delicious edible gifts you can make.

Fragrant and addictive coconut cranberry seed bar. Easy no bake munchies in 10 minutes. Refined sugar free, grain free, nut free, dairy free
Finally, I’ve discovered an awesome a no-bake bar recipe for you. And I have to warn you – these Coconut Cranberry Seed Bars are pretty addictive!
I’ve made these no-bake bars a couple of times, usually with oats, nuts & seeds. For this recipe, I made it with grain and nut free, so it can be enjoyed by everyone. As it’s that time of the year, I thought the addition of white from coconut flakes and red from dried cranberries would give it a festive feel. The finished product didn’t turn out as I earlier envisioned. In fact, it was even better with the specks of white sesame against the green pumpkin seeds and red dried cranberries. Perfect! And the fragrant coconut flakes just made me wanting to go back for more, over and over until I have to tell myself to stop. A couple of times Continue Reading →
