Gluten-Free Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Tart

Remember when we had oh-so-many raspberries and made the Raspberries & Cream Ice Slice? Well, we had enough raspberries for a second dessert, and it needed chocolate. So I invented this tart. It’s deep, dark, and sinfully chocolatey. With not only a chocolate crust, but a silky chocolate ganache filling. And topped with raspberries for […]

Quince Tart with Maple Caramel

I have a new favourite dessert: a quince tart with a maple caramel and a buttery whole wheat crust. Have you met quince before?  (Remember my Quince Clafoutis?)  It’s my favourite fruit: looks like an apple, and smells like the most floral perfumed fruit you’ll ever find!  It’s quince time right now in Toronto, and […]

Garlic Scape Pesto Puff Pastry Pizza

Thank you, Jamie Oliver. I usually don’t do this, but today I picked up the latest Jamie Oliver magazine, (Issue 10, June 2010), and while flipping through I stopped on the Vegetable Tartlets recipe, and declared we needed to have them for dinner.

Spring Ramp & Nettle Green Tart

So, the veggie box I’ve been waiting for came yesterday: the one with the first ramps (wild leeks) and nettle greens of the season!!! Now, I’ve never had stinging nettle greens before, but I’ve decided they count as a Superfood for Meghan’s 5 Days Superfoods challenge, because they’re green and leafy and 40% protein.  Plus, […]
