  • Toddler-Friendly Green Smoothie

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Smoothies are on a regular rotation at our house so it’s no surprise that our third babe would also be a smoothie lover. Eva’s been drinking smoothies since she was about 8 or 9 months old and she loves them. She asks for them every day, especially if her big sis and bros are slurping up smoothies. “Moothie Mama, moothie.” This toddler-friendly recipe can easily be ...
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. My oldest son is by far my biggest baking critic, and therefore, my biggest challenge. He’s in grade four and a few months ago he came home from school to declare that he and his classmates are finally allowed to trade lunch items. I nodded and smiled, all while gritting my teeth. I have volunteered in my kids’ classrooms and I’ve seen the lunches most kids get. Nothing like ...
  • Trail Mix Cookies

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. This is my first recipe post since April, so thank you to those of you who have stuck around!  I hope you enjoy these cookies. I have a pumpkin recipe in the works, who knows, I might get to it before Christmas! The gluten-free market has basically exploded since my husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease (over ten years ago). Breads, muffins, baking mixes, and so much more ...

  • Nut-Free Pumpkin Granola Bars with Chocolate Chunks and Apricots

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. It’s my blogging-anniversary! I’ve been at this blogging thing for five years this week. It’s been an amazing 5 years and I’ve met and connected with some really incredible women. I am so grateful for all of my readers, recipe testers, and recipe tasters. I have learned so much in the past five years - about baking, taking food photos, nutrition, and so much more!  I ...
  • 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 Healthy Chocolate Protein Smoothie

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. In case you missed my video a couple of weeks ago (and my newsletter last week), we are expecting our third gluten-free cinnamon bun in time for Canadian Thanksgiving! I made it through the first trimester with a few food aversions, some nausea (pfft morning sickness is more like all day sickness for some of us), and a lot of nighttime fatigue. Unfortunately the fatigue has stuck ...
  • 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 ...
  • Chocolate Dipped Power Balls

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year I really wanted to create something that both my kiddies and my husband would love. We’re pretty big fans of chocolate around here. Granted, the kids like theirs a little lighter than Pete and I (thank goodness Enjoy Life makes chocolate they like). Pete and I are good with the really dark stuff. We buy a raw ...
  • Ghoulishly Green Smoothie Recipe – Kid-Friendly

    Halloween is one of the few times I let my kids indulge in candy. I want to teach them about balance and I think Halloween provides us with a great opportunity to do so. On Halloween night the kids will go trick or treating, come home, dump all their candy, and we’ll go through it together to pick out the allergy-friendly candies. They’ll get a couple of candies a day, but we make sure they’re also getting lots of water, all of their vitamins, lots of fresh air, rest, and healthy ...
