  • 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 ...
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    Cookies are my absolute favorite treat.  It’s so easy to whip up a batch of cookies, and nothing pleases tummies more! I love watching cookies disappear from my cooling rack - cute little hands sneaking in for another taste.  I also love taking cookies to a friend when we’re going for a visit – it’s a simple, but heartfelt gesture. I have to admit, I’ve been keeping these delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies from you for quite some time (almost a year).  Please ...
  • 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 ...
  • Spooktacular Chocolate Cutout Cookies

    The kids and I have been busy decorating, planning costumes, and baking - all in the name of Halloween. It seems to be the beginning of holiday fun, since (sorry to say it) Christmas isn’t that far away once we get past trick or treating! One of my favorite things to do with my kids is to make cutout cookies. They love to pull out our collection of cookie cutters and destroy the kitchen, my idea of holiday fun! I’ll do anything to get my kids into the kitchen with me. Livvie ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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...
  • Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Dairy-Free Blueberry Buckle

    I don’t know about you, but I am in love with blueberries. They are a powerful little berry. They’re super high in antioxidants, and did you know they actually have anti-aging effects? That's why we start each day with a shot of organic blueberry juice. My two-year old loves snacking on frozen blueberries. Her fingers and mouth get stained and stay stained most of the day. Her clothes undoubtedly get spotted with blue smears, as does the floor. Sometimes I even find a smooshed ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Quinoa Brownies

    Brownies For Breakfast Got your attention, didn't I? Isn't it a wonderful thought? Well, your idea of brownies for breakfast may differ from mine.  These were Quinoa Breakfast Brownies brought to you by the wonderful blogger Karina from The Gluten-Free Goddess. I know what you're thinking.  Quinoa?  In a brownie?  That's actually what attracted me.  Certainly you know the health benefits of quinoa by now!  Treats like these are guilt-free.  Trust me.  With Karina's permiss...
