Wow! My attempt to make chocolate covered strawberry ice cream bonbons in the shape of hearts was a HUGE success!

I’ll post the recipe shortly! I had to make a few small changes to the one from Allergy Free Alaska as strawberries don’t have as much juice as raspberries do.

Did you have a safe Valentine’s Day?

Chocolate Covered Ice Cream Bon Bons for Valentine’s Day

Last year on Valentine’s Day I went looking for something I could make for my Valentine. The first place I went looking was Allergy Free Alaska‘s website as she has wonderful recipes and every single one I have tried to date turns out to be delicious! If you have never visited Allergy Free Alaska’s website, I highly recommend that you head on over there! A whole recipe index awaits you!

I went out and bought a mould for chocolates in the shape of hearts! They made perfect bite size chocolate bon bons! Our favourite were the raspberry ones! This Valentine’s Day, I am making a strawberry filling. Stay tuned to find out how they turn out 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day!


A new dessert…

This afternoon, I decided I would try a new recipes I found for a dairy free mint/chocolate chips ice cream and decided I would try it! I headed off to the grocery store with my list of ingredients and returned home, extremely excited to attempt this ice cream. Here’s a before picture with the ingredients the recipe called for… It’s my very first time making ice cream with avocados! I love avocados so am VERY excited. 🙂


Once I’ve tried the recipe, I’ll be tweaking it a little before sharing, to make sure it’s the tastiest it can possibly be!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Hopefully you have a little sun wherever you may be. Our weekend here in Victoria, BC is looking wet and grey… Perfect weekend for some website work and to build the french site which will be very similar to this one. Stay tuned, and please share any topic, or recipe suggestions you may have. The more the merrier.

Delicious meals that don’t include grains

Tonight we had a favorite…Dairy and Soy-Free Curried Chicken a nice way to wind down from a busy week. It is almost a comfort food for us. And instead of having rice, I had steamed broccoli and brussel sprouts!

Nowadays I am more strict with my nutrition, minimizing and avoiding sugars, grains, starches, dairy and most fruit products (juice and dried fruit) as much as possible. Personally, I have seen a difference. This is a diet change I have made and am followed for and have seen huge improvements with, now and in the past. I am curious to see whether it helps with my other allergies. I know eating a lot of vegetables, especially the green leafy ones like kale, chard and spinach make me feel better. Have you ever craved a spinach salad when you were stressed? I most definitely have! 🙂

Has anyone here tried either elimination diets, candida cleanses or the ketogenic diet and had any success with allergies? Or perhaps success with asthma symptoms…
