Pumpkin Kale Scones

Savory Pumpkin, Kale and Almond Scones (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

It could be said that I have unusual tastes when it comes to food. In fact, it has been said. I don’t mean I’m the type of person who eats adventurously, like the people who will eat intestines and fried grasshoppers. I’m way too much of a scaredy-cat for that. But I am the gal […]

Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins with Butternut Squash

In January, I eliminated sugar for the month – even natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey and coconut sugar. The combination of too much dark chocolate and umpteen impromptu baking sessions on weekday afternoons left me feeling like sugar had become more of a habit than a treat. So, my month of sugar-living began on January […]

Gluten-Free Green Bean and Tomato Muffins

Savory Green Bean and Tomato Muffins (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

Food gifts are the absolute best. I’d choose a handful of fresh herbs from your garden or a thoughtfully prepared gluten-free granola in a jar over a crisply-wrapped gizmo any day.

Gluten-Free Blueberry Sage Muffins

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a terrible gardener. Like truly, truly awful. The only plants that survived my good intentions were sage and rosemary. I can take no credit for this – those plants just kept growing, no matter what I did or didn’t do. We live in Vancouver, BC […]

Vegan Carrot Bread

Gluten-Free Carrot Bread

When this gluten-free carrot bread came out of the oven, I thought it was a fail. It crumbled when I tried to cut it, and the flavour seemed lackluster. I put it in the fridge overnight and since I hate wasting food, I gave it another chance the next day. (Food waste is one of […]

Gluten-free Dukkah Flatbread

Dukkah-Spiced Flatbread and a Giveaway

My first introduction to dukkah was at a local restaurant and had the consistency of a paste, rather than the traditional dry blend of nuts and spices. I loved it so much I created my own version at home. Which I also loved. And have never made it since. Blame it on writing a food […]

Maple Pumpkin Scones (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

My husband came down with the cold at the end of January. And as many of you know, sometimes it’s hard to keep yourself away from the germs that permeate the house once a family member is infected. My immune system fought valiantly for two weeks, and then I had one of those semi-colds. Is […]

Five Easy Gluten-Free Flatbread Recipes

Plenty of folks who go gluten-free spend ages pining for bread. They stare longingly through bakery shop windows at golden, crusty loaves. They buy every gluten-free bread on the market, only to wind up disappointed and many dollars poorer. They meander around the kitchen in the morning, wondering what to eat if toast isn’t on […]
