If there was one recipe from my television show The Clean Plate with Mandi that was deemed the best, by viewers and crew alike, it was this one.
Decadent, creamy and beautiful - it tastes dangerously close to the real thing. So much so, that you'll second guess that it's dairy and gluten allergen friendly.
As mentioned in season one of our show, this dessert has a special place in my husband and I's hearts. It was the dessert we would seek out on date nights and indulge in on late movie nights before we were married.
Now we can share it at home, anytime we like, and for the first time since the show premiered, so can you.
The Clean Plate with Mandi Tiramisu
gluten free - dairy free - soy free - nut free - kid friendly
For Lexi's sweet little 1/2 birthday celebration we made pink champagne cupcakes with velvety vanilla buttercream frosting and pink molded chocolate hearts fit for a princess.
Gluten, dairy and soy free, they are moist, delicious and perfect for any girly party.
The recipe can be found below. Enjoy!

We are just ELEVEN days out from Christmas! ELEVEN PEOPLE! I haven't finished shopping (who I am kidding? I'm still in our newborn bubble with Miss Lexi, I barely just began shopping!) - we haven't planned our Christmas menu (the horror for a baker and chef!) and the house is mostly decorated.
At least we will get to enjoy the festive decor throughout January when I probably would have it all finished by, haha. My husband still has to build our mantle (if you are new, we renovated a 1950's farmhouse late last year and we are doing project by project on a fun never-ending improvement spree on our sweet place.)
I HAVE however been successful at delivering magic for our four year old. Christmas light drive-thrus and ALL the baking and he is a happy camper. So, I bring you our latest baking endeavor that's a hit here and sure to be a hit in your home as well.
One of my FAVORITE holiday recipes is the classic Pumpkin Roll - but this spin makes it an Allergen Friendly Pumpkin Roll. It's one of the recipes my dad would make from scratch EVERY year for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
(If you've watched my show, The Clean Plate with Mandi on Amazon Prime, you'll know I've spoke about how much my dad would cook and bake for us.)
It's rich pumpkin flavor, moist cake and creamy center makes it a craveable treat year after year. And it presents beautifully, a must for when I'm choosing what to serve for family and friends.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
