Gluten-Free Pear Cake

October 2, 2013

Ever wondered why there are so many gluten-free flours? It’s funny, isn’t it?  We all felt so limited when we went gluten-free.  All of a sudden there was a huge list of foods we couldn’t eat. But have you ever stopped to think about all the foods we CAN eat?  It’s a much better way […]

Raw Apple Zucchini Bread

September 23, 2013

This is definitely not your traditional bread recipe (check my recipe page for some of those).  But raw breads are pretty easy to make, and they’re great for those of us who have moved away from yeasted breads, even of the gluten-free variety. I have recently accepted that I am battling an overgrowth of candida. […]

A trip to the Gluten-Free Expo

September 18, 2013

Listen for the beep-beep at the very end of the video.  A totally unplanned honk from my neighbor Dave Dame.  I swear, we didn’t plan it. Here’s my version of Sweets From The Earth’s Caramel Pecan Bar. It was from the early days (almost four years ago!). Here’s a list of the companies I mentioned […]

Gluten-Free Peach Scones with Maple-Peach Cashew Cream

September 4, 2013

Scones are definitely one of Pete’s favorite treats. We both grew up on them – me with my Irish Grandmother and Pete with his British parents. I love that they’re naturally low in sugar, and they’re relatively easy to make. I bake them on special occasions and we usually gobble them up in a couple […]

How to Make a Green Smoothie (Video)

August 23, 2013

When my friends from Ptbo Canada asked if I wanted to film a video with them, I jumped at the chance. We decided a green smoothie video would be a great way to show you how to jazz up your smoothies (or encourage you to add them to your day). I am a big fan […]

All But Gluten – Breads, Muffins and other Baked Goods

August 18, 2013

One of the trickiest items to replace when people go gluten-free is bread. For some reason, bread has become a North American staple in our diets. We seem to serve bread at almost every meal these days. So it makes perfect sense that losing bread is the hardest part of a change to a gluten-free […]

Raspberry Cream Parfaits

August 14, 2013

  I’m taking a break from Zucchini recipes (I have one more in store for you).  These Raspberry Cream Parfaits can be made with any berry – I think wild blueberries would be fabulous. You could also use frozen berries.  What’s nice about frozen berries is the natural syrup that comes when the berries melt.  […]

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf

July 30, 2013

  Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. As I mentioned in my last post, zucchini is popping up everywhere! I do enjoy raw zucchini, but I’m not a fan of cooked, roasted, or steamed zucchini. I find it gets a mushy consistency […]
