My love affair with Mexican food began with a visit to Yucatan where the fresh, robust flavors of genuine south-of-the-border cuisine stirred my senses. Roasted stuffed peppers, delectable black beans and chayote squash, homemade corn tortillas, brightly colored sauces. I was hooked. There was no turning back to the TexMex of my youth. (Those wheat-flour tortillas, flavorless sauces and mounds of tired cheese are now off limits anyway. )
This modern take on traditional tiramisu is gluten free and dairy free. It’s constructed with delicate ladyfinger cookies, scrumptious espresso egg custard and your favorite dark chocolate.
A simple fruit crostata is the perfect way to end a gluten-free romantic meal. What’s not to love about sweet gluten-free shortbread pastry dough wrapped around fresh fruit? Use strawberries or a fruit of your choice.
Dipping these gluten-free orange-cherry dipped biscotti's “twice-baked” dessert in melted chocolate makes it an irresistible treat.
These buttery Dairy-Free Chocolate Shortbread Cookies are infused with the dark taste of cocoa. Only slightly sweet, they pair perfectly with granita. These cookies freeze well in an airtight container or zip-lock bag with wax paper between layers; remove from container and thaw before serving.
One of Italy’s great gifts to the world, gelato. Dairy-free Granita is a refreshing dessert that’s perfect after a heavy meal. Countless flavors and varied textures make it a sensuous experience every time you eat it.
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Desserts in my family seem to come with the seasons. Deep-dish cakes and cookies during the winter holidays. Fried pastry cookies and wedding cannoli in the summer. Sweet egg breads and frosted biscotti for Easter in the spring.
This traditional Italian dish is so flavorful that your mouth will sing. Serve with gluten-free crackers.
