Spring is finally in the air. The birds are chirping, the snow has melted, and the temps are slowly rising. Spring weather always puts me in the mood to cook lighter meals with lots of bright colors. I look forward to the warmer months when there is plenty of fresh produce to cook with!
Dessert season is upon us and I don't know about you, but the plethora of treat options at the dessert table can be overwhelming.
No longer are the days when you have to choose which dessert to divulge in. You can ignore that inner voice battling over cheesecake vs. chocolate chip cookies. I don't know about you, but I usually end up eating both. Enjoying every bite of course.

When faced with the task to make a gluten free and dairy free dessert, I have to admit that I felt my hands were tied at first. A dessert without dairy, is this going to taste good?
I searched the creative pins of pinterest and came upon this strawberry cream pie. The world of dairy free baking is a mystery to me, but I am thrilled I tested out this recipe. It is so thick and creamy, and the consistency reminds me of a traditional cheesecake.
Gluten free brownies have always seemed like an unattainable treat for me. Ever since I went gluten free, I have avoided baking cakes, cookies and brownies. Figuring out the perfect gluten free flour combination in order for the dessert to actually taste good always had an intimidation factor that kept me at bay.
As I was perusing the recipe filled pages of Pinterest, I stumbled upon these black bean and avocado brownies. Say what?!
I have been on a lemon dessert kick lately. Could be from the long awaited Spring weather reminding me of how lovely citrus fruits are, especially in desserts. Or it could be from the idea that lemon desserts tend to make me feel better about eating them.
Healthy or not, these lemon poppy seed cookies are a must try fresh and tasty treat!
