  • Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce

I’ve been making easy dinners for the past month or so – it seems I hit a pregnancy wall of crazy fatigue just around dinner-prep time. So I have to keep it easy and I have to plan ahead! This recipe for Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce has been on regular rotation at our house. I love it because all I need to do is roughly chop some veggies, and then I let the oven do the rest. I ...
  • How To Make Cashew Sour Cream

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. One of the staples in our house is cashew sour cream. I make homemade cashew milk a couple of times a week so we always have cashew pulp in the fridge just waiting to be turned in to cashew sour cream. It truly is a dairy-free dream come true. It was about a year in to my dairy-free adventures before I discovered cashew sour cream, thanks to Kelly from The Spunky Coconut. ...

    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 ...
  • Leek and Garlic Cashew Sour Cream

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Canadian Thanksgiving snuck up on me this year.  Thank goodness for our CSA Farmers who are basically planning our menu – did someone say roasted root vegetables with stuffed squash and Mushroom Gravy?  Oh yes indeed! No matter where you go for Thanksgiving, there’s always something naturally gluten-free on the table.  That's the greatest gift of going gluten-free. It's a ...
  • Cilantro Pesto – Nut-Free & Dairy-Free

    We love pizza in this house, it makes an appearance every week on our menu planning chalkboard (thank you Pinterest).  Our favorite topping is pesto and roasted veggies.  Typically we use our dairy-free almond pesto or walnut pesto recipes. But recently we heard about cilantro pesto. There’s a lovely chef at our local Farmer’s Market who sells all kinds of dips and sauces, and cilantro pesto is one of them.  But I’ve never been brave enough to try it.  I do love cilantro, but a ...
  • Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce (Freezer Friendly Version)

    There are many reasons to fall in love with Fall (this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is one of them). I think what I love most about Fall is visiting the farmer's market and seeing the array of beautiful and vibrant color.  Come Fall I am ready for roasted root vegetables, colorful soups, and veggie-full pastas. For the past three years, my Mom and I have been making our own tomato sauce and freezing it.  One day we will do it properly and can it, but for now this is a great way to take ...
  • Easy Peasy Crunchy Chopped Salad

    We can't seem to get enough of asparagus around here!  Where we live, it's our first local crop that bursts outta nowhere and carries us into Summer's beautiful bounty! Pete and I love it steamed and roasted, but this year we tried throwing it raw into our salads. And it's delightful. Asparagus is super high in vitamins and minerals (like vitamin K and vitamin A) so why not try to sneak it in to more meals. We like to eat a lot of salads at our house, and we like to switch up our ...
  • Creamy Mediterranean Salad Dressing

    We are finally getting fresh organic salad greens at our Farmer’s Market. It makes such a difference to our salads. While we don’t eat exclusively local foods, we like to eat local fruits and veggies as much as possible. It’s more affordable, and better for you (the closer your fruits and veggies are to the farm, the more vitamins and minerals you can get from them). Plus, it supports your local farmers! With fresh greens in the fridge, Pete and I have been whipping up a lot of ...
  • Homemade Roasted Sweet Potato and Squash Salad Dressing

    The best thing about homemade salad dressing is you get to choose your oil, eliminating unnecessary oils found in store-bought dressings, like soybean oil. Why do they need to put soybean oil in so many sauces and dressings? I like to use hemp oil, flax oil, or olive oil in my salad dressings. These oils provide flavor, antioxidants, protein, vitamins, and so much more. When buying oils, I look for organic cold-pressed oils; they’re less processed and higher in all the good ...
