  • Savory Almond Bean Burgers

    I have some exciting news to share - I am heading back to school. As of this week I am a student again (what have I done?). I’m enrolled in the Registered Holistic Nutritionist program at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I’ve been passionate about food and nutrition for a very long time so this is a natural next step for me. I will definitely continue to share lots of deliciously healthy recipes with all of you (topped with a bit more nutritional information perhaps). ...
  • Dairy-Free Tzatziki

    We have a cute little garden growing in our backyard. Callum helped me plant it – we planted tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, collard greens, lots of kale, and cucumbers. The kids and I have had lots of fun watching our veggies grow. We’re having even more fun watching for ripe veggies. I love picking kale for our morning smoothies and Livvie loves digging in the dirt for fresh carrots! Our cucumber plant has seen better days, but we’ve been lucky enough to get three or four good-s...
  • Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice Cream

    One of my favorite brands of ice cream used to be Häagen Dazs.  Strawberry ice cream?  Yes please! But we’ve been living dairy-free for over a year now and I have to tell you, ice cream tastes even better without the dairy! Maybe it’s because I know it won’t give us a tummy ache.  Or maybe it’s because homemade ice cream can’t be beat! And don’t worry, homemade ice cream is much easier than you think. So move on over Häagen Dazs. Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice ...
  • Decadent Chocolate Sauce

    We’re in full Summer mode, and we're having a blast! Naturally, we’ve been eating lots and lots of homemade ice cream and making lots of homemade popsicles. We were craving chocolate sundaes last week so we put our heads together and came up with this delightfully simple dairy-free chocolate sauce. Serve it with ice cream, eat it by the spoon, or add a little more milk and pour it into popsicle moulds. Dairy-Free Chocolate Sauce ½ cup of full-fat coconut milk ...
  • Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Dairy-Free Blueberry Buckle

    I don’t know about you, but I am in love with blueberries. They are a powerful little berry. They’re super high in antioxidants, and did you know they actually have anti-aging effects? That's why we start each day with a shot of organic blueberry juice. My two-year old loves snacking on frozen blueberries. Her fingers and mouth get stained and stay stained most of the day. Her clothes undoubtedly get spotted with blue smears, as does the floor. Sometimes I even find a smooshed ...
  • Adzuki Bean and Quinoa Veggie Burgers

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I love a good veggie burger. There’s something comforting about veggie burgers and fries, don’t you think? However, I've always had a difficult time making a good veggie burger at home. For some reason I was hooked on cooking them in a frying pan on my stove-top. Time after time, it just didn’t work. No matter what I added.  It. Just. Didn’t. Work. Instead we had ...
  • Chocolate Cereal Bars

    Craving chocolate, but it’s breakfast time? I’ve got just the thing for you. Personally, I like my chocolate to be dark. The darker the better. I think it’s because of the little chocolate buzz I get. Oh, and it helps to know that dark chocolate is a brain food! These chocolate cereal bars are an easy, nutritious, and incredibly satisfying nut-free snack for your little ones who are headed to school. But they’re also great for you when you need a chocolate fix but want ...
  • Chocolate Chunk Pecan Squares

    I think New Years Eve is a little overrated. I’ve never really been into it.  Even when I was a young, carefree, wild, and single girl I didn’t really enjoy it more than any of the other party nights in my year!  Do I sound like a total party girl?  You know it! A great New Years Eve these days - I've got two little kids who don't care if I've been up late carousing, they still get up bright and early - includes hanging out with people I love and it includes eating a great meal.  ...
  • Date Sweetened Vinagrette

    I think salad is a side dish served at every dinner party. And rightfully so. Salad is so versatile. So many greens. So many dressings. So many toppings. Whenever we go to holiday dinners with Pete's side of the family, I get asked to bring a salad. I think it's because my salads aren't your usual chopped cucumbers, diced tomatoes, and iceberg lettuce salads. You just never know what's in my salad bowl! And I’m a little bit of a dressing snob. You do know it’s faster to make ...
