Once in a while, we still have to have a rich, tasty, dessert
even when we're diabetic or dieting. This one has about 1/3 less carbs than a regular lemon velvet cake. It's still a little high if you're watching your carbs so mind your serving sizes. It's NOT low carb but it is significantly lower than regular.
We just LOVE this shake. You can adjust the amount of coffee granules to suit your taste. I use just 1/2 tablespoon but you can use up to 2 full tablespoons. Crumble extra cookies over the top for a decorative look.
Oh, this is good! It's not too complicated to make but tastes like heaven on a plate. Makes a really special dessert that's fancy enough for the holiday table. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete from start to finish. Be sure to bring all the cold ingredients up to room temperature as failure to do so will effect the end result.
This is a great, easy way to bake small cakes for 2 people. They're a fun project for kids and adults alike. I have several "little" recipes for cakes and desserts for just 2 people and all of them can be baked in tin cans using this technique. Here are a few of them: recipe #369222, recipe #369220, and recipe #369159
Use this delicious syrup over waffles, pancakes, crepes, pound cake, vanilla ice cream and more. It's quick and easy to make and tastes like fresh sweet oranges. You can add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for spiced orange flavored syrup.
These are to die for! They are a little more work than store bought but they blow the doors off anything you can buy at the store. You can use store bought ice cream but homemade is so much better and it's so easy to make! Try to make the ice cream at least a few hours ahead so it can freeze up good. It'll be easier to work with plus you can eat the ice cream sandwiches right away without it oozing out the sides. For homemade, use my recipe recipe #384140 #384140
I found this simple but elegant recipe in a magazine a few years back. It's from the Baker's Chocolate Company. It's so easy to prepare but looks like you spent alot of time making something special. Everyone loves these.
This recipe is a little bit different from all of the others I've ever seen. I found it in an old recipe box from the 50's that I bought at an estate sale. I don't know which version is the authentic version but we really love this one.
We love this awesome sorbet! It's very different and so delicious! Be sure to allow time for the sugar syrup to cool. I make it in the morning, put it in the frige and then when I get home, the syrup is cold and ready to go.
Since my little girl is allergic to strawberries, I am always looking for great alternatives using raspberries. We have come to really love them! Here's a quick and easy pie. You can put this together in no time flat but allow at least 2 hours for chilling time. I found this in the July '09 issue of bon appetit. To make the creme fraiche try recipe #57607
This is what real strawberry ice cream should taste like. It's fresh and all natural. I like knowing exactly what's in the stuff we're eating, don't you? It'll turn out just a light shade of pink so if you want it pinker, add a few drops of food coloring. Splenda lovers- this will NOT turn out the same using splenda. It won't have the same rich, creamy consistency. I don't know why but it won't. Cooking time is freezing time.
OMG- These are awesome! I mean AWESOME!!! They are pretty easy and really worth the extra effort! Give them a try one of these hot afternoons when you don't know what to do with your kids. They'll love this one. I made my own ice cream in my ice cream maker- it's so much better. If you want to do that, try to make the ice cream several hours ahead or even the day before so it has time to firm up in the freezer. Here are my two favorite ice creams: recipe #375587 and Recipe #375540 They are both very quick and easy to make. I usually make the cookies the day before I make the ice cream sandwiches and freeze them overnight. That way they're nice and hard and easy to work with. The freezing time is not accounted for in the prep time so plan accordingly.
