  • 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...
  • Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (Or Zombie Eyeball Cupcakes)

    Cupcakes are a regular occurrence at our house.  Between birthday parties and school parties, it seems I'm making them every couple of weeks. It's okay though, because I’ve found a few ways to make sure my kids are eating healthier cupcakes. It’s pretty easy to healthify a recipe! Here’s how I did it: I used quinoa flour to add some protein (we make our cupcakes nut-free for the sake of other kids). I limited the amount of starch. I used coconut oil and full-fat coconut ...

  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Zucchini Pancakes

      I don’t know about you, but everywhere I turn I am finding garden-fresh zucchinis! So what’s a girl to do? Put zucchini in everything! I’m considering grating and freezing a bunch for future recipes: muffins, soups, and now pancakes! Can you imagine how easy it would be to break off a chunk of frozen grated zucchini and throw it in a recipe? My kids love pancakes. They would happily eat them every morning for breakfast. My almost five-year old (gulp) is starting ...
  • Peanut Butter & Chocolate Smoothie

    In case you haven't noticed, I’ve basically given up refined sugars. It was a really hard thing for me to do, but now that I’ve done it, my life has changed. I finally see food as a source of energy. I finally taste the sweetness of real food. I find it much easier to get through the day with two wild lovely ones running around now that I don’t rely on refined sugars to give me a false burst of energy mid-afternoon (only to crash in a pile of crayons half an hour later). ...
  • The Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo

    We just got back from a fantastic weekend in Chicago, Illinois.  We went to the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo and it was so fantastic.  I am so glad we took the kids, it was such a great gluten free adventure for all of us. Friday night we went to a pasta dinner at a restaurant called Maggiano's.  Gluten free pasta at an Italian restaurant!  It was such a treat.  We were lucky to share a table with Amy (from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free) and her husband Joe, as well as Brittany ...
  • Frosted Sugar Cookies

    We made sugar cookies this week and it was oh so fun. I love baking with my kids and sugar cookies are perfect because the kids can get so involved: mixing, measuring, pouring, rolling out the dough, playing with cookie cutters, and then decorating. It’s the perfect afternoon activity. And then we get a sweet reward at the end! We used this recipe as our base, I made a few modifications (outlined in the updated recipe below) so I could make them egg-free and refined sugar-free. I ...
  • Making The Perfect Green Smoothie

    Are you afraid of green smoothies? I used to be afraid of green smoothies. After asking a lot of questions on twitter about a year ago, I finally dove in and made a green smoothie. I know, so brave. You see, when I pictured a green smoothie I imagined V8 and Clamato juice. Ugh, gag me with a spoon. But everyone was doing it so I knew there must be something about the alleged green smoothie that was worth trying (yep, I like to jump on bandwagons, especially healthier bandwagons). Be...
  • Giving the gift of gluten-free

    I had a brainwave a couple of months ago (I know, it's shocking). I thought it would be cool to make mixes for some of my recipes and give them away or sell them (etsy here I come!). When I saw that Tasty Eats at Home was hosting Gifts of Good Taste for this week's Gluten-Free Holiday , I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to share my brainwave with you! Do you know someone who wants to try gluten-free baking? Or perhaps you know someone who is newly diagnosed. Maybe one of ...
