  • Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

    This big kids have been back to school for just over a month now and we seem to be finding our new groove.  Parenting is frequently about finding a new balance, wouldn't you agree? Eva and I find ourselves baking more often now that it's just the two of us again. I've always loved baking with my babes. It's one of my favourite ways to spend time with them. Baking with kiddies makes for a much messier time in the kitchen, but it's so worth it. I'm currently teaching Liv to be a little ...
  • Vlog: How To Make Chocolate & Peanut Butter Power Bars

    I'm having fun making videos for some of my simplest recipes.  It's a project that Callum and I have been working on and we love it!  He's my technical assistant. The recipe is posted below the video if you want to see it or print it out.  You can also find it here. My kids call these brownies.  They really are delicious and super filling.

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cheesecake

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I am celebrating my 8th year of blogging this month and I knew we had to do it in style. I’ve been sitting on this delicious cheesecake recipe for months now. It took some time to perfect - that peanut butter and chocolate combo is a special one. Plus, I was waiting for the perfect occasion. I think 8 years of blogging is a pretty amazing occasion, don’t you? The peanut butter ...
  • Chocolate Banana Protein Popsicles

      As soon as the warm weather hits, my kids start begging for popsicles. Their number one choice is popsicles from the convenience store (being kids who have tasted refined sugar). You know the ones; they’re brightly coloured and full of crappy sugar. Obviously not their nutritionist mama’s first choice of popsicle. A couple of years ago my family bought me a Zoku Pop Maker. They truly are one of the best inventions. Popsicles in 7 minutes, yup. I have yet to play around with ...
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. My oldest son is by far my biggest baking critic, and therefore, my biggest challenge. He’s in grade four and a few months ago he came home from school to declare that he and his classmates are finally allowed to trade lunch items. I nodded and smiled, all while gritting my teeth. I have volunteered in my kids’ classrooms and I’ve seen the lunches most kids get. Nothing like ...

  • Spooktacular Chocolate Cutout Cookies

    The kids and I have been busy decorating, planning costumes, and baking - all in the name of Halloween. It seems to be the beginning of holiday fun, since (sorry to say it) Christmas isn’t that far away once we get past trick or treating! One of my favorite things to do with my kids is to make cutout cookies. They love to pull out our collection of cookie cutters and destroy the kitchen, my idea of holiday fun! I’ll do anything to get my kids into the kitchen with me. Livvie ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Oreo Cookies (and cupcakes)

    This recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free Oreo Cookies has been sitting here for a few weeks, alas, the end of Summer was so full for us and the first few weeks of school have been the same. My days consist of running kids to and from school, playing Lego when they are home, studying anatomy and physiology whenever I can, and running a whole foods kitchen! It’s a fabulous life, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Now back to these cookies – the perfect after ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake

    August is birthday month around here (and it doesn’t seem to slow down too much until the end of October). Now that both of my parents and my sister are gluten-free and dairy-free (and feeling fabulous of course), I’ve been busy baking birthday cakes and cupcakes for my entire family. One of my go-to gluten-free flours is teff flour. It’s an amazing gluten-free grain jam-packed with nutritional goodness. And it pairs perfectly with chocolate, so naturally I grabbed for it when I ...
