  • French Toast Cupcakes & Bunner’s Bake Shop Cookbook

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. One of our favorite places in the world is Bunner’s Bake Shop in Toronto, Ontario. You can read about our first road-trip to Bunner’s right here. Over the past two years I've gotten to know Ashley Wittig, the co-owner, from our visits to the bakery (the kids love visiting Bunner's when we're in Toronto, we've been known to drive there just to visit the bake shop). ...
  • Gluten-Free Raspberry Crumble Cake

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Easter is one of my favorite times of the year. It means Spring has arrived, the sun is shining brighter, and the flowers are getting ready to bloom. What’s not to love? I also love Easter because for us it usually means a big family brunch, and who doesn’t love a big brunch (breakfast + lunch = heaven)?  I'll be bringing this cake to our family brunch on Sunday. As you ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Fudgeeo Cupcakes

    As kids gets older, they become more sensitive about their differences, in this case, their food intolerance(s). They just want to eat what everyone else is eating! Especially when it comes to birthday parties and other social gatherings. Not too much to ask, is it?  Unfortunately this can get a little tricky. In order to make my kids feel a little better about being the only one eating a gluten-free cupcake at a birthday party, I’ve decided to get a little more creative. If ...
  • Gluten-Free One Bite Brownies

      I’m all for indulgences, but these days I like my indulgences to be a little bit healthier.  And I love it when my kids consider my healthier treats to be tasty too. These One Bite Brownies are just that!  Healthier and yummy. So what makes these One Bite Brownies healthier? I used whole grain teff flour - high in protein and calcium. I used heart-healthy coconut oil - are you using it yet? I used coconut sugar instead of refined cane sugar - a little easier on ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake

    August is birthday month around here (and it doesn’t seem to slow down too much until the end of October). Now that both of my parents and my sister are gluten-free and dairy-free (and feeling fabulous of course), I’ve been busy baking birthday cakes and cupcakes for my entire family. One of my go-to gluten-free flours is teff flour. It’s an amazing gluten-free grain jam-packed with nutritional goodness. And it pairs perfectly with chocolate, so naturally I grabbed for it when I ...
  • Gingerbread Cupcakes

    I am so excited to be hosting the final week of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Gluten-Free Holiday event!  This week we’re focusing on gluten-free holiday desserts AND I’m giving away two fabulous cookbooks! First I must share my recipe for this week's Gluten-Free Holiday Desserts!  I've been saving this extra-special recipe since last Christmas! Who says you can't eat cupcakes at Christmas? My kids LOVE cupcakes. Last year I stumbled across a Martha Stewart recipe for ...
  • Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (Or Zombie Eyeball Cupcakes)

    Cupcakes are a regular occurrence at our house.  Between birthday parties and school parties, it seems I'm making them every couple of weeks. It's okay though, because I’ve found a few ways to make sure my kids are eating healthier cupcakes. It’s pretty easy to healthify a recipe! Here’s how I did it: I used quinoa flour to add some protein (we make our cupcakes nut-free for the sake of other kids). I limited the amount of starch. I used coconut oil and full-fat coconut ...
  • Easy Gluten-Free Living: The Preschooler Version (and Vanilla Cupcakes)

    Living with gluten-free preschoolers is a lot easier than you might think. Callum, our almost five-year-old, has been living gluten-free and dairy-free for a year and a half. His two-year-old sister has never had gluten. Callum’s diagnosis was probably the hardest part. I knew how to live with a gluten-free husband, but I wasn’t sure where to begin with gluten-free kids. The first decision we made was a tough one. We decided to become a gluten-free family. No gluten in our house, ...
  • Cookies and Cream Cake

    Move over Dairy Queen. Because we don't need your gluten, your dairy, or your HFCS. Look at this cake!  Look at the layers of yummy, healthy, tummy-friendly goodness. I made this delicious gluten-free and dairy-free Cookies and Cream ice cream cake for my Mom for her birthday. It was divine. My friend Heather is the ice cream cake queen.  She makes dairy and gluten-loving ice cream cakes on a regular basis.  So when I decided to make my first ice cream cake, I knew I ...
  • Our First Gluten-Free Cupcake Party

    So we did it.  We held our first GF cupcake party and it was definitely a success. The Birthday Girl is a sensitive little soul with a few intolerances too.  Polyester, dairy, and fragrances, to name a few (the ones we’re sure of for now).  Pete and I decided to keep her off wheat for the first year of her life (really, everyone should be wheat-free for the first year…. don’t get me started on Arrowroots and the like).  She’s been sharing her daddy’s breads and cereals, and ...
