  • 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). ...
  • Easy and Every Day Raw Food Recipes from Choosing Raw

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. When I first discovered raw foods I was a little overwhelmed. I didn’t have a dehydrator (I didn’t even know what it was) and I was just getting into green smoothies! I wish I’d had a resource like Gena Hamshaw’s new book Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat. Gena is the creator of one of my fave blogs - Choosing Raw. I’ve been stealing quiet moments ...
  • Creamy Kiwi and Avocado Green Smoothie

      We bought a Blendtec (a high-speed blender) two years ago and we haven’t looked back.  It was such a worthwhile purchase for us; it’s paid for itself many times over. We run that baby at least 4 times a day, if not more.  It’s an amazing machine that makes soups, sauces, spreads, and smoothies of course!  What I love about my Blendtec is the nutrition you can pack into it.  In a matter of seconds, it transforms into liquid gold! We make a lot of smoothies and ...
  • Rustic Raspberry Galette (Pie Crust Recipe)

    I’m a believer of all things pie. It’s in my genes – both of my Grandmothers were amazing pie makers. My Momma’s a pie maker too. So I’ve never been afraid to bake a pie. Yes, even in the Summer heat. I mean really, these fresh berries are just begging to be baked into a pie (unless they’re topping this pudding). And since I’m a believer of all things pie, I’m also of the belief that Summer just can’t pass without a raspberry pie (my absolute favorite). ...
  • Summer Holidays & Vanilla Cashew Pudding with Raspberries

    It’s so important for me to make sure my kids have a blast this Summer. And as you can see, we’re doing the best we can!  I believe in making the most of Summer (actually, we should make the most of every day). We’re also staying cool eating lots of homemade ice cream (have you seen The Spunky Coconut’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream Cookbook!?) and homemade popsicles. Who says dairy-free living can’t be delicious? We’ve learned how to satisfy our creamy cravings with ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • We Planted A Garden!

    Callum and Liv have taken an interest in planting and watering flowers so I decided to involve them in this year’s gardening adventures. Please let me begin by telling you three things: I am no expert gardener – I plant it, and if it grows we eat it! Our garden is teeny tiny. We had no plan. Just fun! I do love taking my garden gloves off and getting my hands right into the earth. There's something restorative about it.  And I love watching my kids get dirty in the ...
  • Easy Peasy Crunchy Chopped Salad

    We can't seem to get enough of asparagus around here!  Where we live, it's our first local crop that bursts outta nowhere and carries us into Summer's beautiful bounty! Pete and I love it steamed and roasted, but this year we tried throwing it raw into our salads. And it's delightful. Asparagus is super high in vitamins and minerals (like vitamin K and vitamin A) so why not try to sneak it in to more meals. We like to eat a lot of salads at our house, and we like to switch up our ...
  • Creamy Mediterranean Salad Dressing

    We are finally getting fresh organic salad greens at our Farmer’s Market. It makes such a difference to our salads. While we don’t eat exclusively local foods, we like to eat local fruits and veggies as much as possible. It’s more affordable, and better for you (the closer your fruits and veggies are to the farm, the more vitamins and minerals you can get from them). Plus, it supports your local farmers! With fresh greens in the fridge, Pete and I have been whipping up a lot of ...
  • Savory Gluten-Free Crackers

    I think most of you know what a few of my favorite things are: cookies, muffins, smoothies, and pumpkin seed flour! I’m slightly obsessed with it lately, but that’s a good thing. Pumpkin seed flour is a super nutritious way to get some vitamins and minerals from your diet. You must use raw pumpkin seeds though! Roasted pumpkin seeds don’t have the same oil content, or the same nutritional value. This recipe for gluten-free crackers was born for a good cause. My friend Tess from ...
