Peanut Butter Cookies and Variations

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: newsletter, article, GF, dessert, recipes

I really love cooking by weights, especially with peanut butter and brown sugar. I just hate trying to get that measuring cup clean! So I decided to make this simple recipe here by weight so I wouldn't have to figure it out every time.

Homemade hot cocoa is easy, healthier and tastes SO much better than pre-made mixes.



Make Your Own Organic Vanilla Extract

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, dessert, newsletter

Vanilla: One of the most loved flavors and perhaps the most artificially (and poorly) imitated. Real vanilla is also rather expensive. Making your own is easy and much less expensive than a $2.50 per ounce in the store. At that price, you can hardly afford to use enough to truly appreciate this amazing delicacy. Way better to simply make your own... trust me, your culinary life won't be the same.



Avocado chocolate (vegan) pudding extravaganza

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: dessert, recipes, vegan, vegetarian, sugar-free

Not a fan of soy-burgers -- but you gotta love cooking vegan if for no other reason than this pudding. I've tried various internet recipes and none of them were that good -- but THIS is fantastic. A healthy, sugar 'free' treat for all.



Birthday Cake Challenge

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: dessert, recipes, sugar-free

I can hear it now - Oh come on... really? what has this world come to when kids need a sugar free birthday cake?!? Wait... Just wait... this cake is really good, I promise. It also is super healthy for you and your kids. There are no 'pretend' colors, or allergens, or anything that should cause any distress to a growing or aging body. Oh, did I mention it takes no time to make?



Our favorite healthy chocolate treat

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, dessert, newsletter, sugar-free

As we learned more about nutrition and human biology, it became clear that excess grains and refined sugar was bad for us... and not in the 'some day' sense, but noticeable right now. However, we still love chocolate and needed a way to get our fix...



The Best Eggnog

If you're going to splurge and have eggnog, you really ought to make it yourself. It is quite easy and delicious!



Crème Brulee a la Betsy

A delicious treat that your family and guests will love. Not nearly as hard to make as you might think. Read the recipe to learn more and be sure to watch Betsy's video to see for yourself! Makes 6 servings.



Betsy's Scones

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: eggs, breakfast, recipes, dessert

On select weekends, I might be guilty of whining until Betsy makes me scones. There is no way to be certain, but this ritual might* be rather successful in creating some truly culinary goodness that happens to go great with espresso on a rare lazy Saturday morning. Making sure the butter is cold, good quality and having a pastry knife is really, really helpful to get the texture just right. Sometimes it doesn’t quite turn out how Betsy wants it to, and I think she has to make another batch with the left over cream on Sunday to prove a point!
