  • 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, 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 ...
  • Rustic Raspberry Galette (Pie Crust Recipe)

    I’m a believer of all things pie. It’s in my genes – both of my Grandmothers were amazing pie makers. My Momma’s a pie maker too. So I’ve never been afraid to bake a pie. Yes, even in the Summer heat. I mean really, these fresh berries are just begging to be baked into a pie (unless they’re topping this pudding). And since I’m a believer of all things pie, I’m also of the belief that Summer just can’t pass without a raspberry pie (my absolute favorite). ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • Lemon Poppy-Seed Cookies

    I am so proud of my Momma – she’s made some major changes in her diet in the last few months and she’s looking and feeling fabulous! After reading Wheat Belly, she decided to switch to a gluten-free lifestyle. She’s also taken on dairy-free living. And refined sugar-free living. Yes, she’s a superstar! And she also happens to be an amazing and supportive Mother. I can’t imagine where I’d be if it weren’t for her love in my life. My Mom and I share a love for many ...
  • Savory Gluten-Free Crackers

    I think most of you know what a few of my favorite things are: cookies, muffins, smoothies, and pumpkin seed flour! I’m slightly obsessed with it lately, but that’s a good thing. Pumpkin seed flour is a super nutritious way to get some vitamins and minerals from your diet. You must use raw pumpkin seeds though! Roasted pumpkin seeds don’t have the same oil content, or the same nutritional value. This recipe for gluten-free crackers was born for a good cause. My friend Tess from ...
  • A Gluten-Free and Vegan Roadtrip: Bunner’s Bakery

    As the Mom of two little gluten-free cuties, I am happy to do a lot of baking. But I've also dreamed of being able to take my kids to a bakery where they can eat anything they want. And where Pete and I can eat anything we want! Enter Bunner's bakery - a gluten-free and vegan bakery in Toronto, Ontario. I was lucky enough to enjoy one (okay, two) of their cupcakes at my cousin's wedding in December. I knew my kids would love a visit to their bakery so they could pick their own cupcakes...
  • Nut-Free Granola Bars

    It’s maple syrup season in these parts and I am making the most of it.  How can we not when the stuff is flowing from the trees, begging us to use it! As you know, I’m in love with pumpkin seed flour so naturally I had to try my hand at a nut-free granola bar recipe. Pumpkin seeds feature prominently in this recipe, and why not?  They’re naturally high in iron, magnesium, and zinc; all are essential minerals for women’s health and wellness. Honestly, you’d never ...
  • 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 ...
  • Buckwheat Breakfast Cookies at Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free

    Most of you know my co-founder for The Balanced Platter , Amy Green.  She's the talented woman behind the blog and cookbook Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free. Amy is taking a little blogging break to spend some precious moments with her little bundle of joy,  so last week I shared my gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free Buckwheat Breakfast Cookies with her readers. I'm sharing the link and a picture here because I wanted to make sure you didn't miss the recipe.  Buckwheat Breakfast ...
