Chocolate Raspberry Tart Recipe

By Joanne Bruno | May 7, 2012

chocolate raspberry tart

This tart should come with a warning: “Proceed with caution!”

Its luscious chocolate ganache filling will reel you in while the raspberry preserve center is what will keep you coming back, bite after bite; sliver after sliver.  Cutting the richness so that you never think, “Oh this is too much” and instead  are constantly leering into the pan thinking, “Well, I suppose one more can’t hurt.”

It can’t. Read More

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

By Madeleine Ignon | April 13, 2012

Maybe I am slow to catch on, but my new favorite baking ingredient is almond meal, also known as almond flour. I don’t have a gluten allergy, but I love baking with it as an alternative to flour because then everyone can afford to indulge in a sweet treat.

I find that baking with almond flour yields lighter results, and adds a bit of protein and texture to boot. This recipe is a take on the classic, but made a little healthier. Obviously, glass of cold milk required.

Spiced Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe

A few weeks ago Shivani Vora, friend and renowned journalist, invited me to a dessert tasting by a company called Vegan Divas. Since I heard the word ‘vegan’ I assumed that I wouldn’t be eating all that much. After all, how were desserts like chocolate mousse going to provide aeration with the absence of whipped eggs and where would that creamy mouth feel come from, that so indulgently coats the mouth, without cream?

Vegan Avocado Chocolate Pudding Recipe

By Aine Carlin | November 17, 2011

BY AINE CARLIN

I should confess at this point to being an unashamed avocado-holic. Avocados rock my world in every way and I don’t just eat them when we’re dining on Mexican. Don’t get me wrong, guacamole is one of my absolute favorite things on earth but I’m just as happy scooping out that creamy flesh with a spoon and eating it as is. Even better, I adore it sliced and on toast with a sprinkling of sea salt, cracked black pepper and few splashes of Tabasco, sheer heaven!

Many people consider avocado to be a savory item (even though it is technically a fruit) and not be used in sweet dishes. But if you’ve ever added mango or pineapple to an avocado salsa you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from on this one. And even if you don’t and your worried there’s going to be an overriding taste of avocado let me put your mind at ease – I defy anyone you serve this to, to identify the primary ingredient in this dessert.
