Cucumber, Chickpea and Avocado Salad

It’s not often that I post anything remotely healthy, but this salad is an exception. I’ve been learning a new respect for the humble legume, and it’s all in the quest for the perfect flourless chocolate cake. There has been much experimenting, biting of nails, and thoughtful testing and tasting of cake. Does it have…

Chocolate and Raspberry Almond Cake {gf/df}

If the moniker were not already taken, I would totally rename this blog, ‘The Lazy Baker/Cook’. Because that is what I am. If I can’t whip it up within a matter of minutes, it doesn’t make the cut. Perhaps when I was younger I was attracted to highly intricate recipes, but not now. In a…

Fudgy Flourless Nutella Swirl Brownies {gf}
