  • Date-Sweetened Granola

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Berry season is in full swing where we live – we had a delicious crop of strawberries (did you see my recipe for Strawberry Oat Squares ?) and now we’re in the middle of raspberry season. I can’t seem to get enough of these delightful little berries. One of my favorite ways to eat berries is on my cereal. When I was younger I would douse my Shreddies in brown sugar and ...
  • The Best Home Fries

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Pete is a natural cook, he loves to get into the kitchen and make us soup, stir-fries, and curry dishes.  He somehow just whips together a delicious dish off the top of his head.  Recipes stress him out so he usually avoids cookbooks, and when I ask him to write up a recipe for me (which is really for you), he usually puts me off and tries to avoid it. But this time I insiste...
  • Apricot and Almond Loaf

        Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. This Apricot and Almond loaf has been pretty popular around here. I have been baking it and giving it away as gifts to our Osteopath and our Naturopath. Both of them love it. If you’re planning on giving loaves of homemade quick bread away during the holiday season, this is your recipe. This Apricot and Almond loaf is low in refined sugar, high in protein, and ...
  • Sweet Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day

    This is an old family recipe that I finally converted, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.  My Mom is famous for her Scone, and has been making it for years.  Pete and I haven’t had any since going gluten-free, so I knew St. Paddy’s Day would be the perfect excuse to convert my Mom’s recipe to a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe. As always, I used whole grain gluten-free flours to make my conversion.  If you’re familiar with scone or Irish Soda Bread, you know the flavor ...
  • 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 ...

  • Oat, Almond & Date Muffins

    I am hosting this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free and I decided to choose a Springtime Brunch theme. I love brunch. It’s my favorite meal to host. I like to load the table with fresh fruit and veggies, granola, cinnamon buns, quick breads or muffins, and other delightful breakfast-meets-lunch treats. One brunch staple you can’t go wrong with is the beloved muffin. I love a good muffin and I am always playing with new variations in my kitchen. My Oat, Almond and ...
  • (What’s The Story) Morning Glory Muffins

    Liv and I baked side by side for the first time this weekend. Prior to this, I've mixed flour at the counter and she's mixed flour and water at her little red table.  We've both been completely happy this way. But Saturday I asked her if she wanted to bake with me - she was thrilled.  Livvie will be 2 at the end of October.  She's more than ready! And she did a great job. There were only a few accidents along the way. It was so much fun and so cute!  It took me back to Callum's ...
  • Sweet Cinnamon Buns

    Who doesn't love a good cinnamon bun? My friend Krista makes the most yummy ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls.  She used to bring them to brunches and I would devour at least two or three whole rolls (okay, maybe four).  And I always walked away wanting more! Since Callum's diagnosis I've had a hard time recreating the perfect Krista-inspired cinnamon bun. I've been working on this recipe for a while now, and Pete and I are very happy with it! I call them Sweet Cinnamon Buns because they're ...
  • Quinoa Banana Muffins

    You will thank me for these muffins, so hurry up and get the ingredients so you can make them! I'm on a bit of a quinoa flour kick right now.  Might be because I just spent $80 on a gigantic bag! You have to be careful when adding quinoa flour to your baked goods - they can quickly get a bitter taste (in my opinion).  Some people don't even like the taste at all! But quinoa is so good for you. It's irresistible! I've been using quinoa flour in my bread lately (replacing the ...
