  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Strawberry Oat Squares

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. In my opinion, strawberry and raspberry season are far too short! I adore berries and can’t seem to get enough of them this time of year. It’s hard to walk past berries at my local Farmer’s Market without buying a couple of pints. Half of the first pint doesn’t even make it home if Livvie is with me! She’s just like her Momma in her love affair with berries. As you ...
  • Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (With A Twist)

    One cannot have enough cookie recipes. Sometimes I’m in the mood for double chocolate chip cookies and sometimes I’m in the mood for peanut butter cookies. This time though, I had a hankering for classic chocolate chip cookies. We’ve redefined the word classic in our house. We take classic and twist it four times. Once to make it gluten-free, a second time to make it dairy-free, a third time to make it egg-free, and a fourth time to make it a little bit healthier. I jumped ...
  • Chocolate Cereal Bars

    Craving chocolate, but it’s breakfast time? I’ve got just the thing for you. Personally, I like my chocolate to be dark. The darker the better. I think it’s because of the little chocolate buzz I get. Oh, and it helps to know that dark chocolate is a brain food! These chocolate cereal bars are an easy, nutritious, and incredibly satisfying nut-free snack for your little ones who are headed to school. But they’re also great for you when you need a chocolate fix but want ...
  • Frosted Sugar Cookies

    We made sugar cookies this week and it was oh so fun. I love baking with my kids and sugar cookies are perfect because the kids can get so involved: mixing, measuring, pouring, rolling out the dough, playing with cookie cutters, and then decorating. It’s the perfect afternoon activity. And then we get a sweet reward at the end! We used this recipe as our base, I made a few modifications (outlined in the updated recipe below) so I could make them egg-free and refined sugar-free. I ...

  • Triple Chocolate Pudding Sandwiches

    Yes, you read that right. Can you believe it? Doesn't it sound (and look) delicious? Well they are delicious.  And they're so easy to make.  Oh, and did I mention healthy too? You'll be begging your kids to ask for another one. And you won't believe how healthy these babies are (did I already say that?). I really wanted to call the chocolate pudding Chocolate Avocado Pudding but I didn't want to scare you off.  Trust me on this one.  Have I ever let you down? The pudding ...
  • Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Quinoa is such a perfect grain. Look at the picture.  I love the way the quinoa flakes have unrolled in these cookies.  It's like art. And my goodness these are yummy little cookies. It's been a while since I've craved a cookie.  I think all of this baking has moved me away from the simplicity of cookies.  I am in the kitchen a lot. I have clients for whom I bake.  I have family for whom I bake.  And I have a cafe for which I bake.  I basically bake every day - though I do ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Egg-Free Oat Macaroons

    These babies are so delish and nutritious too - what more can you ask for in a treat? They are traditionally called macaroons, but I've revamped them a bit for those of us who are not big fans of shredded coconut.  For me it's the texture of shredded coconut.  And I feel like I need to spend too much time chewing something that's not all that tasty (the shreds). I got this recipe from my friend Annie who calls them Annie's Fabulous Macaroons -and baby, they are fabulous.  They are ...
  • Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies

    Just in time for Hallowe'en – a sugar cookie breakthrough. I was feeling a little adventurous today – Callum and I needed something fun to do that didn’t involve me playing with an animal, or me being an animal (animal obsessed seems to be an understatement). So I decided to try and make Hallowe'en sugar cookies –pumpkins and ghosts. A few months ago (before I dove headfirst into the GF blogging world) I was sure that we’d never have fun and cutesy shaped cookies again. How on ...
