  • Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. 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. ...
  • Leek and Garlic Cashew Sour Cream

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 ...
  • Zucchini and Tahini Dip

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Today I want to share two sources of my summer inspiration with you. First off, do you know Andrea Nakayama and her amazing site Replenish PDX ? Pete and I did her Spring Liver Cleanse in May and I was so impressed (once I got over the loss of my coffee-fix for seven days). The recipes were delicious (Andrea Livingston is the recipe developer), and the support during the ...
  • Bean-Free Almond Hummus

        I have been making our own nut milks for almost a year now. Homemade nut milk tastes better, it’s easy, and I know exactly what I put in it! Our favorite homemade version is cashew milk. We use the leftover pulp (what’s left behind after making nut or seed milk) to make cashew cream. It’s so easy and takes about five minutes to throw together before dinner. I’ve even used the cashew pulp to make nut cheese and it’s oh-so yummy! Recently though, we’ve ...
  • Dairy-Free and Refined Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce

    With Valentine’s Day around the corner, then Maple Syrup season, and then Easter, I thought it was high time to share my refined sugar-free caramel recipe with you.  I’ve been sitting on this one for a long time, waiting for the right time.  And here we are! I think everyone should be able to enjoy caramel.  I’ve used this recipe to make caramel ice cream sauce, caramel apples, and a number of other things.  I’m no candy expert, so I won’t tell you how to make caramel ...
  • 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 ...
