  • Sweet Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day

    This is an old family recipe that I finally converted, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.  My Mom is famous for her Scone, and has been making it for years.  Pete and I haven’t had any since going gluten-free, so I knew St. Paddy’s Day would be the perfect excuse to convert my Mom’s recipe to a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe. As always, I used whole grain gluten-free flours to make my conversion.  If you’re familiar with scone or Irish Soda Bread, you know the flavor ...
  • 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 ...
  • Fabulous Find – Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free

    Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger I love participating in Book of Yum’s Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger monthly roundups. It’s such a great way to try out other blogger’s recipes. Otherwise, us bloggers are too busy working on our own recipes to try out another blogger's recipes. Sometimes I think about hanging up my blogging hat just so I can try all of the amazing gluten-free recipes that are floating around the blog-o-sphere. One of my earliest blogging heroes was Amy from Simply Sugar ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Pumpkin Bread

    Always look on the bright side. In the past year I have learned so much about substitutions. I was actually forced to learn when my then 3 year old was diagnosed with gluten, dairy, and egg sensitivities. Holy moly that was a stressful week. Thankfully, my husband Pete was already gluten-free due to a celiac diagnosis in 2004. While we were feeling a little bit stressed (can ya blame me), at the same time Pete and I were relieved. We finally had an answer for some of the difficulties ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Apple Bread

    Easy Apple Bread – Gluten-Free and Vegan When I was doing my Teacher's Education I lived in Vancouver, British Columbia. At the same time, my good friend Amy was doing her Masters on Vancouver Island in Victoria, B.C. These were the days. We had so much freedom and we were, in a way, finding ourselves out West while accomplishing higher education. Perfect, no? Amy and I would get together on the weekends; she would ride the ferry to Vancouver or I would ride the ferry to Victoria. It ...
  • Rosemary Onion Crackers

    I really wanted to call this post Maggie's Gone Crackers. I recently had the chance to go shopping at Whole Foods (food bloggers dream about this) and I bought some really yummy crackers.  They inspired me to make my own.  Look out Mary! These aren't your every day, "Mommy can I have some peanut butter and crackers?" crackers, although I think they taste super yummy with almond butter.  They're a little fancy - whip up a batch next time you're having your friends over for dinner. ...
  • Sweet Cinnamon Buns

    Who doesn't love a good cinnamon bun? My friend Krista makes the most yummy ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls.  She used to bring them to brunches and I would devour at least two or three whole rolls (okay, maybe four).  And I always walked away wanting more! Since Callum's diagnosis I've had a hard time recreating the perfect Krista-inspired cinnamon bun. I've been working on this recipe for a while now, and Pete and I are very happy with it! I call them Sweet Cinnamon Buns because they're ...
  • Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Bagels

    Have you ever made bagels before? Really, they're much easier to make than you think.  Especially after diving in the first time.  They get easier every time. It's just like baking bread.  Just pour yourself a big coffee or a lovely glass of wine before you dive in! And imagine being able to bite into freshly made gluten-free bagels that YOU made?  It's really one of life's greatest foodie pleasures. I've been tweaking this recipe for a couple of months now.  I've done a little ...
  • Buckwheat Quinoa Sandwich Bread

    I am having fun playing with my original bread recipe. The thing is, I make bread for us at least once a week so I tend to get bored making the same recipe every time.  Variety is the spice of life, non? So I've started playing around with our bread.  I've been using more quinoa flour and less bean flour.  I much prefer the quinoa flavour to the garfava flavour. My latest combination is a dense bread, a little more weighty than the other bread recipes.  It doesn't rise quite as ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Cinnamon Bread

    I used to believe Cinnamon Bread was actually a guilty pleasure. But not anymore my friends! I've been working on this recipe for a few months now and I think it's ready to share with the blog-o-sphere! I used my bread recipe as a base and simply sweetened it up by adding some yummy sweetness. Here's the result - I do hope you'll try it. It makes fantastic french toast and it would be great to take to a brunch. Gluten-Free and Vegan Cinnamon Bread 1 ½ cup hot water 2 ¼ ...
