No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Tart (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free & Vegan!)

One of my very favourite flavour combinations is dark chocolate + fresh raspberries.  I’ve put the combo into a gluten-free tart before, with my Raspberry Dark Chocolate Tart.  But it uses both cream and butter — and I want my dairy-free friends to be able to have dessert too… especially as I was invited for […]

Devil’s Tongue Hot Sauce for Karen

My lovely friend Karen brought me some hot hot hot “Devil’s Tongue” peppers from her garden, asking if I took requests for the blog. And when she said I could have the peppers if I made hot sauce and shared the recipe, I was TOTALLY in! I was debating what to do with them, and […]

Mr. KitchenOperas and I are big popcorn fans.  We’ll make a big bowl in the evenings, and munch away to […]

A Solo Socca Snack

I’ve been making a lot of socca around here (imagine a big savoury chickpea-flour pancake!), and finally have come up with a single-serving version… which I’ve been making for a quick snack, or even breakfast!!!
