  • The Best Home Fries

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Pete is a natural cook, he loves to get into the kitchen and make us soup, stir-fries, and curry dishes.  He somehow just whips together a delicious dish off the top of his head.  Recipes stress him out so he usually avoids cookbooks, and when I ask him to write up a recipe for me (which is really for you), he usually puts me off and tries to avoid it. But this time I insiste...
  • Apricot and Almond Loaf

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. This Apricot and Almond loaf has been pretty popular around here. I have been baking it and giving it away as gifts to our Osteopath and our Naturopath. Both of them love it. If you’re planning on giving loaves of homemade quick bread away during the holiday season, this is your recipe. This Apricot and Almond loaf is low in refined sugar, high in protein, and super ...
  • 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 ...
  • Raw Apple Zucchini Bread

    This is definitely not your traditional bread recipe (check my recipe page for some of those).  But raw breads are pretty easy to make, and they’re great for those of us who have moved away from yeasted breads, even of the gluten-free variety. I have recently accepted that I am battling an overgrowth of candida. Two years ago I suffered a miscarriage and immediately after that I got a horrible double ear infection.  Let me tell you, it was a rough few months. One of the ...
  • Gluten-Free Peach Scones with Maple-Peach Cashew Cream

    Scones are definitely one of Pete’s favorite treats. We both grew up on them – me with my Irish Grandmother and Pete with his British parents. I love that they're naturally low in sugar, and they're relatively easy to make. I bake them on special occasions and we usually gobble them up in a couple of days! A few years ago Pete and I went to the West Coast of Canada and found this amazing little café in a spot called Deep Cove. This was before Pete’s celiac diagnosis so we found ...
  • How to Make a Green Smoothie (Video)

    When my friends from Ptbo Canada asked if I wanted to film a video with them, I jumped at the chance. We decided a green smoothie video would be a great way to show you how to jazz up your smoothies (or encourage you to add them to your day). I am a big fan of green smoothies. I think they're a great way to start your day and to add super foods that you might have trouble fitting in otherwise. It's kind of like having a salad for breakfast. We switch up our smoothie ingredients every ...
  • All But Gluten – Breads, Muffins and other Baked Goods

    One of the trickiest items to replace when people go gluten-free is bread. For some reason, bread has become a North American staple in our diets. We seem to serve bread at almost every meal these days. So it makes perfect sense that losing bread is the hardest part of a change to a gluten-free diet. When Pete was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease (about 8 years ago) the gluten-free bread options were pretty sparse, and those that were on the market were a lot like cardboard. But ...
  • Raspberry Cream Parfaits

      I’m taking a break from Zucchini recipes (I have one more in store for you).  These Raspberry Cream Parfaits can be made with any berry – I think wild blueberries would be fabulous. You could also use frozen berries.  What’s nice about frozen berries is the natural syrup that comes when the berries melt.  It makes the parfaits look even prettier. This means you can make these parfaits any time! We’re in peach season here and I can imagine peach parfaits would ...
  • Enerjive Crackers

    Have you noticed that healthy gluten-free products can be hard to come by? Thankfully we have companies like Enerjive - their crackers were created by two Canadian women who were also looking for healthy (and tasty) gluten-free products. Have you tried them yet? I am excited to share Enerjive Crackers with you - they're delicious and nutritious.  My favorite combo in the gluten-free world. "Creating food that is delicious and prepared using wholesome and clean ingredients is ...
  • Kale Salad with Sweet & Creamy Dressing

    My friend Hallie from Daily Bites is launching her latest e-book today: Crazy for Kale: Glow From The Inside Out with 40 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes.  It contains 40 recipes with kale as one of the ingredients (33 of which are Paleo/grain-free and 31 are vegan or have vegan alternatives). To help Hallie celebrate, I thought I'd share a recipe for Kale Salad with Sweet and Creamy Dijon Dressing.   I think we all know the amazing benefits of kale - high in antioxidants (those cancer-...
