Red Velvet Whoopie Cakes

Whoopie pies/cakes are a dessert I have enjoyed since I was a child. A soft cake texture mixed with cream in the middle. It’s similar to an Oreo, but the outside is made out of cake and is bigger than an Oreo. It’s one of the best desserts out there for a cake lover. I remember enjoying them while getting cake stuck to my fingers and having to lick it off my hands, which was the best part. I always enjoyed how soft it was and how you got some filling in each bite.
The whoopie pie is a Pennsylvania …

 

Strawberry Shortcake

Who doesn’t like a classic strawberry shortcake? This recipe is a healthier version of the cake that has the same tastiness of regular shortcake cake mixed with the sweetness of some fruit. It’s probably one of the healthiest cakes out there considering it still involves cake.

Homemade Eggless, Gluten-Free, Sugar Free, Vegan Oreos

Ever since I developed my food sensitivity to rapeseed, which is in canola oil and soy lecithin, Oreos, which have both canola oil and soy lecithin in them, has been one of the food items I can no longer eat. There are many different alternatives for Oreos such as Gluten-Free Oreos or Organic Oreos, but every alternative I have found still has soy lecithin in them, therefore, I still can’t eat them. I decided to look for a homemade version of Oreos that are still quite similar to Oreos, but slightly different in ingredients so I can enjoy them.

Dessert Showcase

Last Saturday, I attended the 2012 New England Dessert Showcase at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston, hosted by The Anthem Group. Each year, the event brings together dessert fans to sample sweets from local restaurants, bakeries, and vendors. I have been looking forward to this for a while, seeing as I have a huge sweet tooth. I was only there for a little over an hour but probably consumed enough desserts for the whole week! Each sample size was generous, too. Halfway through the event and starting to feel full, my friends and I started to split the samples, so …

 

Homemade Hot Chocolate

I am oh so desperately awaiting the start of winter; seriously I can’t wait for it to snow. Growing up in the Canada, “The Great White North” as it is often called we have two seasons – winter and construction.  Also winter lasts for about 8 months, so it’s a little strange for me to be able to walk to my gym in a sweatshirt and shorts at the start of December.  Growing up I loved winter; I never really played on a sports team but winter sports I loved. Skiing, sledding, were regular activities in my life and of …

 

My Challenge: Homemade Chocolate Pudding

I got Joanne Chang’s cookbook Flour the first day it was available at the New England Book Fair in Newton.  Although I have not had the time I wished to read the book and recipes page after page of tempting offerings, I decided the first thing I would make is chocolate pudding from scratch.  I had only made chocolate pudding from a box and my favorite part was to add cream to the little left over in the pot and enjoy the chocolate pudding hot off the stove!  I like my chocolate pudding warm to hot with cream on top …
