  • Peanut Butter Cookies

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I’ve been busy getting used to life with 3 cute kids. Being back in the land of babies has been so much fun for our family, but it comes with a side of sleep deprivation for me! There hasn’t been much Maggie time lately so getting a recipe created and perfected and then blogged hasn’t made it to the to-do list (it only took me a week to get this post up, haha). This new ...
  • French Toast Cupcakes & Bunner’s Bake Shop Cookbook

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. One of our favorite places in the world is Bunner’s Bake Shop in Toronto, Ontario. You can read about our first road-trip to Bunner’s right here. Over the past two years I've gotten to know Ashley Wittig, the co-owner, from our visits to the bakery (the kids love visiting Bunner's when we're in Toronto, we've been known to drive there just to visit the bake shop). ...
  • Nacho Night With Neal Brothers (And a Recipe for No-Fuss Bean Dip)

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Once in a while we like to make a really easy dinner, especially when the kids have swimming lessons that run until 6:15! Most of the time, our dinner requires planning and preparation since we make most of our food from scratch. Our fast food nights usually involve ordering in from one of our favorite gluten-free friendly restaurants, and when we want to skip take out and make ...
  • A Visit to Kelly’s Bake Shoppe

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Pete and I have traveled many distances to find good places to eat – he knows that I love nothing more than checking out local restaurants and bakeries when we’re on road trips. The catch? They’ve got to be gluten-free and veg friendly. Last month we went to Florida for a little getaway. On our way to the airport we hit up Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Lettuce Love Café, both ...
  • Banana Oat Muffins

    I have always been a huge muffin lover. When I was in Teacher’s College I used to buy a coffee and a muffin (almost as big as my face) at the campus café. It was total heaven on earth. There was another café near my practice teaching school (on the east side of Vancouver) and they sold muffin tops, and the best coffee. I’m not kidding, the best muffin tops in the world.  Who doesn't love a muffin top, as long as it's on a muffin and not a waist! These Banana Oat Muffins are pretty ...
  • Vanilla Apple Cider Waffles

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. When I was a little girl I loved Eggo Waffles. Can you blame me? My favorite part about eating them was making sure every little square was covered in syrup. Perhaps that’s where my love of all things sweet was born. When we switched to a gluten-free diet, we generally avoided store-bought waffles as they’re pretty void of nutrition, and you know how I like my foods to be full ...
  • The Best Home Fries

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Pete is a natural cook, he loves to get into the kitchen and make us soup, stir-fries, and curry dishes.  He somehow just whips together a delicious dish off the top of his head.  Recipes stress him out so he usually avoids cookbooks, and when I ask him to write up a recipe for me (which is really for you), he usually puts me off and tries to avoid it. But this time I insiste...
  • Quinoa and White Bean Stuffed Acorn Squash – Gluten-Free & Vegan

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I love recipes like this, especially for this time of year when I seem to be in the kitchen way more than usual! Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time in the kitchen, but I also love hanging out with my kids, practicing yoga, blogging (of course), watching cool movies with my hubby, running, and so much more. So if I can find any short cuts in the kitchen, I will ...
  • Gluten-Free Peach Scones with Maple-Peach Cashew Cream

    Scones are definitely one of Pete’s favorite treats. We both grew up on them – me with my Irish Grandmother and Pete with his British parents. I love that they're naturally low in sugar, and they're relatively easy to make. I bake them on special occasions and we usually gobble them up in a couple of days! A few years ago Pete and I went to the West Coast of Canada and found this amazing little café in a spot called Deep Cove. This was before Pete’s celiac diagnosis so we found ...
  • All But Gluten – Breads, Muffins and other Baked Goods

    One of the trickiest items to replace when people go gluten-free is bread. For some reason, bread has become a North American staple in our diets. We seem to serve bread at almost every meal these days. So it makes perfect sense that losing bread is the hardest part of a change to a gluten-free diet. When Pete was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease (about 8 years ago) the gluten-free bread options were pretty sparse, and those that were on the market were a lot like cardboard. But ...
