Pumpkin Pecan Granola (Gluten-Free)

Breakfast, Desserts & Baking, Snacks

I clearly remember when I started making my own granola.  It was back in the 90’s when I was going to University, waitressing during the nights to get by and watching every single penny I spent.  I decided one day that it was time that I made my own granola and to save a few extra bucks, rolled up my … View The Post

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Alright, I MAY have gone a bit overboard when I purchased all of those cans of pumpkin puree in September, but I have no regrets.  Everything happens for a reason, and those cans of pumpkin were no exception.  Today needed a bit of brightening, and since ice cream is my favourite treat, there was no question about what was on … View The Post

Crustless Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-Free)

Desserts & Baking, Gluten-Free, Recipes

I confess, it’s always been the pie filling, not the crust, that I’m after. I’d say that this is especially the case with pumpkin pie, the quintessential fall dessert. The good news is that skipping the crust makes it so much lighter in the calorie department! Pumpkin is rich in fibre, carotenoids and Vitamin A, which may help improve night … View The Post
