  • Beanitos – Better Than Chips!

    There's a new favorite chip in our house and I just have to share them with you! Beanitos are corn-free chips made from, you guessed it, beans!  We love to eat ours with melted daiya cheese, dipped in guacamole, or with some homemade hummus.  Even the kids love them packed in their lunch with a small container of salsa.  There are four varieties to choose from - Black Bean, Pinto Bean, Chipotle BBQ, and Cheddar Cheese.  Our fave is the Black Bean of course! What do I love about ...
  • Fabulous Finds: Cook It Allergy-Free

    It’s about time for me to share the excellent website Cook It Allergy Free . It is indeed a fabulous find! I remember when Kim hopped on the scene not too long ago. She came out of nowhere and made a name for herself and her blog in no time. Kim is an incredibly creative mother of two really cute boys. And she’s a bit of a health-nut, I love that about her.  I always learn something from her posts and recipes. What I really love about Kim though, is how she values her family ...
  • Fabulous Finds: Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom

    Blogging has brought a lot of amazing people into my life in a very short time. The cool thing about it is we’re all connected by our love of food, our gluten-free adventures (or misadventures), and our desire to make the path to a healthy lifestyle easier for others. Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom was one of my first blogging friends. We immediately hit it off.  I think it’s because we have a lot in common – we’re both the lucky moms of 2 adorable kids, we both care ...
  • Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Spread

    Have you eaten a rainbow today? I stumbled across the Today I Ate a Rainbow kit at my friend Kim's blog, Your Green Baby .  She reviewed the kit and loved it so I knew I had to check it out for myself. It’s one of the coolest kid-friendly products I’ve ever come across. I love it and so does Callum. Livvie, our two year old isn’t quite ready to use the chart but at least she’s getting a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, and hearing lots of talk of rainbows! Callum loves ...
  • Day Cheese Review

    Friday Finds is back this week with a gooey and cheesy treat. My friend Danielle was kind enough to bring me some Daiya cheese last weekend when she came for a visit.  Can you believe it?  She's so good to me - she also brought me an LPK Nanaimo Bar (gluten-free and vegan). I have tried most of the dairy-free cheeses on the Canadian market and they just don't do it for me.  Not at all. It's the melt factor.  These dairy-free cheeses just don't melt. Enter Daiya Cheddar Style ...
  • Sugar-Free Living – Worth the Hype?

    It seems as though sugar-free is all the rage in the blogging world. Many of my blogging friends regularly post recipes that are sugar-free and it's so fascinating to see their creations and how they live and bake without refined sugar. But there's one thing standing in the way of me and "sugar-free". I have a really lovely and out-going sweet tooth.  She's not at all afraid to speak her mind and it seems my children have been blessed with wee versions of my sweet tooth.  Isn't that ...
  • Caramelized Onion Dip – Vegan

    Certainly you're reading GOOP? I'm on Team Gwyneth and always will be.  I want to be her friend, have play dates for Callum and Apple, and dinner dates with Chris (Pete and Gwyneth can come too).  I know she can be, in the words of Lainey Gossip, nauseating.  But I like that about her okay! I've been getting GOOP - G's newsletter - since day one, thanks to Lainey who told us all about it before it launched.  I love it.  Though there are many issues that I skip (sorry, not going to do ...
  • Let’s Do Ice Cream Cones (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

    It's been a busy week here in She Let Them Eat Cake land! One of my most excellent regulars is celebrating a birthday today and she has a gluten-free wish list: chocolate cake, cinnamon bread, pizza crusts, and sandwich bread. So I've been in the kitchen all week long (in between pirate play and preschooler outings).  Thus, a short and sweet (literally) Friday Finds for my faithfuls.  But I've included a really cute picture that should melt your heart, if not your ice cream. So ...
  • Vegan & Gluten-Free Rice Crispy Squares Featuring Sweet and Sara Marshmallows

    Oh my goodness, these are the real thing. I have been admiring vegan marshmallows for a while now.  I love the way they look - they're usually hand cut so they're big and imperfect and I like that about them. Recently I bought Callum some pomegranate marshmallows that we found at our local health food store.  He LOVED them but I wasn't a big fan.  I just wanted plain old white marshmallows, ones that would take me back to my camp counsellor days.  Puffy, plain, and melt-in-your-mouth ...
  • Your Green Baby

    If you're the mother of a young babe, I strongly recommend joining a mom's group of some sort. It's so helpful to share your experiences with other moms.  It's nice just to get out of the house and meet up with other moms so your kids (and you) can have a change of scenery.  One of the mom's groups I joined when Callum was wee still meets on a monthly basis! Pete and I moved last August and I was left with no momma connections.  Luckily I found a cool group of moms here called Peterbor...
