  • 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 ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Oreo Cookies (and cupcakes)

    This recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free Oreo Cookies has been sitting here for a few weeks, alas, the end of Summer was so full for us and the first few weeks of school have been the same. My days consist of running kids to and from school, playing Lego when they are home, studying anatomy and physiology whenever I can, and running a whole foods kitchen! It’s a fabulous life, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Now back to these cookies – the perfect after ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • We Planted A Garden!

    Callum and Liv have taken an interest in planting and watering flowers so I decided to involve them in this year’s gardening adventures. Please let me begin by telling you three things: I am no expert gardener – I plant it, and if it grows we eat it! Our garden is teeny tiny. We had no plan. Just fun! I do love taking my garden gloves off and getting my hands right into the earth. There's something restorative about it.  And I love watching my kids get dirty in the ...
  • A Gluten-Free and Vegan Roadtrip: Bunner’s Bakery

    As the Mom of two little gluten-free cuties, I am happy to do a lot of baking. But I've also dreamed of being able to take my kids to a bakery where they can eat anything they want. And where Pete and I can eat anything we want! Enter Bunner's bakery - a gluten-free and vegan bakery in Toronto, Ontario. I was lucky enough to enjoy one (okay, two) of their cupcakes at my cousin's wedding in December. I knew my kids would love a visit to their bakery so they could pick their own cupcakes...
  • Oh Mega Mix – Foods That Heal

    I’m hosting, this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free and the theme is Foods That Heal. Since the diagnosis of Pete’s celiac disease and Callum’s food sensitivities, I have witnessed first hand, the power of food. It has incredible healing powers. Nutrition has quickly become one of my passions, and one of the main reasons why I’m studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I’ve been learning a lot about the importance of essential fatty acids (EFAs). ...
  • Peanut Butter Cups

    It’s time to start thinking about some amazing and delicious gluten-free gifts we can share with friends and family over the holidays. A couple of years ago my friend Alta shared some fabulously healthier gifts – I made her chocolate dipped spiced dates for friends of ours. They were a big hit! I love sharing gluten-free goodies during the holidays. It’s a great way to spread the delicious gluten-free love, to show people how simple gluten-free can be, and to show the kids that ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Zucchini Pancakes

      I don’t know about you, but everywhere I turn I am finding garden-fresh zucchinis! So what’s a girl to do? Put zucchini in everything! I’m considering grating and freezing a bunch for future recipes: muffins, soups, and now pancakes! Can you imagine how easy it would be to break off a chunk of frozen grated zucchini and throw it in a recipe? My kids love pancakes. They would happily eat them every morning for breakfast. My almost five-year old (gulp) is starting ...
  • 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 ...
  • Fabulous Finds: Your Green Baby

    This month’s Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger is being hosted by Zoe from Z's Cup of Tea. Zoe and I have become good friends (we share a love of fun nail polish colors and healthy gluten-free baking, oh and Cooks Illustrated). I adopted Zoe last summer and made her Mango Popsicles. This month I decided to adopt my friend Kim from Your Green Baby. If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know Kim. She’s shared some really informative guest posts with us. Check them out: Who is ...
