Perfect Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry sorbet is the best! Especially right now that local strawberries are in season. They are so gorgeously delicious, sweet and juicy. It’s the perfect summer fruit. After eating a few quarts just like candy, I felt like trying something different. This is what I came up with, and it is so good! Such aContinue reading “Perfect Strawberry Sorbet”

Melon-Maple Sorbet

In the summer, there’s nothing better than a fresh melon, cut in half, that you eat by the spoonful… except perhaps if you make a sorbet out of it! This is super simple, quick, easy and so refreshing! Here is what you need: 1 melon, cut in small pieces, about 6-8 cups (I used aContinue reading “Melon-Maple Sorbet”

Dark Chocolate Sorbet

In the winter, I love making myself a thick dark hot chocolate with a nice foam on top. There is something incomparable to being nested in a thick blanket with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. However, when it’s 35C outside, the last thing you want to do is bundle up. Well,Continue reading “Dark Chocolate Sorbet”

Simple and Crumbly Pie Crust

It is pie season! Everywhere I turn I see these amazing pies, and they make me want to go home, strap on my checkered apron and bake a thousand different type of pies and then share them with my friendly neighbors.

Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts

Yesterday some of my students did their English ministry exam. Stressful times! As a result, I have spent most of my breaks today correcting at school. When I came back home, I was really exhausted and ended up falling asleep as my mom, who was visiting me, was talking. I woke up, 4 hours later,Continue reading “Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts”

Earl Grey Vegan Ice Cream

I have a confession to make: I’m completely tea obsessed. I have been on a no-buying tea since last November, survived the craze for Christmas teas, and still have a full tea library and a tea cupboard that don’t seem to by any less crowded. It is crazy! I don’t know what it is aboutContinue reading “Earl Grey Vegan Ice Cream”

Chocolate Covered Strawberries, from scratch

I love chocolate covered strawberries because they are easy to prepare, always look impressive and are perfect for warm weather. I was craving these, but unfortunately, I didn’t have any chocolate in the house. I did however have some cocoa powder and some cocoa butter (go figure!). So, let’s make some chocolate from scratch! HereContinue reading “Chocolate Covered Strawberries, from scratch”

Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

When I received my ice-cream maker for my birthday a few weeks ago, I just wanted to put everything aside and make chocolate ice cream. Well, tonight I did.
