  • Girlie Girl Army & Caramel Pecan Bars

    You just can't go wrong with caramel and pecans. I subscribe to a weekly email newsletter (would that be an e-letter?) sent out by the girls at Girlie Girl Army. It's a great little newsletter that is all things green, vegan, go girl go, and so much more.  I love it. Last week there was a recipe for Caramel Pecan Bars and I just knew that I had to try them.  We were going to my Mom and Dad's for a BBQ (first of the season - woo hoo) and I was in charge of dessert.  I love an excuse ...
  • All-Natural Disinfectant

    Both of our babes have very sensitive skin so we've had to make many changes. It amazes me to think about all of the things I've learned as a result of having kids (thank goodness for them). A few years ago I saw a special on a Canadian television show called Marketplace on CBC Television.  It was about the carcinogens (cancer causing agents) found in cleaning supplies (please tell me you're no longer using Magic Eraser).  It was easy to stop using most mainstream cleaning supplies after ...
  • Friday Finds Enjoy Life’s Nut-Free Trail Mix

    I recently met a Mom whose little dude has a lot of allergies.  Nuts being one of them. Since meeting them and learning about their allergies, I've decided to try and be a little more conscious about this life threatening allergy. Hopefully you saw my post earlier this week - yummy nut-free breakfast cookies.  They were the first of many attempts on my part to be more aware of nut allergies.  I think all of us in the allergy community need to stick together! I know how difficult ...
  • Friday Finds Betty Crocker’s Gone Gluten-Free (& Vegan)

    I'm not really a big fan of using a mix to make a dessert. And to be honest, I can't remember the last time I did.  I would much rather bake my own goodies than bake Betty Crocker's! Fortunately I was given a box of Betty Crocker's Gluten-Free Brownie Mix to try.  The only ingredients you have to add are eggs and butter. Whoops.  We don't bake with either of those ingredients. Otherwise, the mix is free of dairy and the ingredients are reasonably healthy - although I imagine the ...
  • Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

    I found these chocolate gems a couple of months ago but I'm just getting around to really using them now. Somewhere along the way, Callum picked up a sweet tooth - no idea how that happened. He likes to snack on chocolate chips while I'm baking, and these are the perfect little treat for him. I fill a small bowl with these tiny little chipits and he eats away while I do the trickier parts of baking. He doesn't even notice that they're not real chocolate chips. I really like the ...
  • Friday Finds: Gluten-Free Bread Recipes

    There's absolutely nothing like a piece of fresh bread.  And fresh bread is hard to come by in a gluten-free world. I've recently started testing out some gluten-free bread recipes as I am finding the price of good bread is absolutely ridiculous!  It's so hard to find a good recipe, but I've included a couple of links here in case you want to try them.  I'll add more as I find them. I am working on my own recipe - one that is gluten-free and egg-free.  It's the egg part that's killing ...
