  • It’s Time to get Berrylicious!

    I am super excited to share my new eBook with you, Berrylicious 25 New Mouth-Watering Recipes for Enjoying the Summer’s Healthiest Fruits . After a few months of creating, developing, writing, testing, and photographing, it is finally ready! And I hope you love it as much as I do! For the last 10 years I have been baking gluten-free goodies for my family. I’ve learned a thing or two about baking – there were quite a few flops, hockey pucks, and garbage dumps. But there have been ...
  • Gluten-Free Raspberry Crumble Cake

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Easter is one of my favorite times of the year. It means Spring has arrived, the sun is shining brighter, and the flowers are getting ready to bloom. What’s not to love? I also love Easter because for us it usually means a big family brunch, and who doesn’t love a big brunch (breakfast + lunch = heaven)?  I'll be bringing this cake to our family brunch on Sunday. As you ...
  • 7 Tips for Enjoying a Kid-Friendly Gluten-Free Christmas

    We’ve been a gluten-free family for 4 years now, but to be honest, it’s hard to remember what life was like before we changed our eating habits. I am so grateful for the road we’ve been travelling - even when it was bumpy and I didn’t know where our next turn would take us. We’re all so much healthier and happier. My family and I don’t miss out on a thing this time of year, or any other time of year, for that matter. Here are some tips I’ve learned over the years that ...
  • Gluten-Free Pear Cake

    Ever wondered why there are so many gluten-free flours? It’s funny, isn’t it?  We all felt so limited when we went gluten-free.  All of a sudden there was a huge list of foods we couldn’t eat. But have you ever stopped to think about all the foods we CAN eat?  It’s a much better way to look at a gluten-free diet, don’t ya think? For instance, think about all of the gluten-free flours we can use in our baked goods.  It’s amazing!  It’s way better than choosing ...
  • Peanut Butter and Jam Thumbprints

    Callum and Liv are at the perfect age for holiday fun and we are making the most of it.  Seeing Christmas through the eyes of your children is pretty magical. We've been playing (no snow yet), baking (lots of gingerbread cookies), and making lots of homemade cards.  My kids love finding toys from around the house and wrapping them up for friends and family.  It's so sweet.  We are all pretty excited about Santa's visit to our house. Naturally, Santa will be welcomed with a plate ...
  • Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I have a new favorite flour – pumpkin seed flour.  I’ve been experimenting with it for a month or so now and I just can’t get enough!  Oh, and you won’t believe how well it pairs with maple syrup – it just happens to be maple syrup season in these parts! There’s so much to love about pumpkin seed flour: I can make it at home with my coffee grinder; Pumpkin seeds are high in iron and zinc; Pumpkin seed flour is a nut-free replacement for almond flour; They add ...
  • Easy Gluten-Free Living: The Preschooler Version (and Vanilla Cupcakes)

    Living with gluten-free preschoolers is a lot easier than you might think. Callum, our almost five-year-old, has been living gluten-free and dairy-free for a year and a half. His two-year-old sister has never had gluten. Callum’s diagnosis was probably the hardest part. I knew how to live with a gluten-free husband, but I wasn’t sure where to begin with gluten-free kids. The first decision we made was a tough one. We decided to become a gluten-free family. No gluten in our house, ...
  • Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Perfect Bread Goes Vegan

    This is our new favourite bread. It's gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free bread. Isn't it gorgeous? If you read my recent Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger post, you'll know that I tried one of Amy Green's new bread recipes. There are a few things I love about Amy’s recipe for The Perfect Bread: 1. The recipe calls for her flour mix. 2. It’s made in a regular sized loaf pan. 3. It rises nice and high, just like gluten-filled bread does. 4. It’s really user-friendly and it ...
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I’ve been on a bit of a cookie kick lately. I think we’re all in search of the perfect cookie, right? And right now, this is the perfect cookie. It happens to be a gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free cookie. I received two issues of  Cooks Illustrated for Christmas (thanks to my Mom). I’d never read it before and wanted to test it out before going for a full on subscription. Well, I am hooked. I’ve already learned so much from just two issues! Each article is FULL of ...
  • Giving the gift of gluten-free

    I had a brainwave a couple of months ago (I know, it's shocking). I thought it would be cool to make mixes for some of my recipes and give them away or sell them (etsy here I come!). When I saw that Tasty Eats at Home was hosting Gifts of Good Taste for this week's Gluten-Free Holiday , I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to share my brainwave with you! Do you know someone who wants to try gluten-free baking? Or perhaps you know someone who is newly diagnosed. Maybe one of ...
