Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

It astounds me that I’ve never posted a basic chocolate chip muffin recipe. Chocolate chips enhance all baked goods. This is a fact. And these muffins? Heaven. A crisp exterior and soft pillowy insides, punctured by bursts of chocolate. Yup. Heaven. Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time 30 mins […]

Mediterranean Millet Flatbread

I’ve never been a fan of eating olives. Hold on. I’m being too diplomatic here. I have always despised olives. I frantically ask restaurant servers to leave them off menu items. I firmly believe they don’t deserve to be classified as a pizza topping. I’ve never ordered a martini. In the last year or so, […]

Just Beet It Muffins

I am often enticed by the lure of brightly coloured beets at the farmers market or the grocery store. I genuinely like the taste of beets. I love their incredibly detoxifying nutritional benefits. Yet I’m often at a loss for what to do with beets besides steaming or roasting them. I regularly gaze at them […]

How to Salvage Gluten-Free Recipe Disasters

Last weekend, as I prepared to deliver a workshop about gluten-free holiday cooking, I experienced a rather unfortunate snafu. My red lentil crepes, which I was pre-cooking for 40 people, simply were not working. No matter how I tried to troubleshoot the recipe by changing up the amount of liquid, the pans, the temperature, the […]

Parsnip, Carrot and Apple Muffins

I eat parsnips twice a year: at Thanksgiving and Christmas. No more, no less. And I’m totally cool with it. Parsnips are fine, but they’ve always reminded me of strange-tasting, unsatisfying carrots (that’s no accident – they’re part of the carrot family). Then I got a request on my Facebook page to create a recipe […]

Summerlicious Zucchini Bread

We all have neighbours, friends or coworkers with backyard gardens who like to foist their vegetable surpluses on us. I’ve certainly been on the receiving end of fat tubes of zucchini from people whose plots were visited by the garden fairy, and accepted the bounty with gratitude and more than a little envy. And now […]

Buckwheat Mushroom Flatbread Bake

I’m no one-trick flatbread pony, you hear? Sure, chickpea socca is delicious. So is this red lentil and carrot flatbread. And we can’t forget herbed quinoa flatbread, either. Or flatbread pizza. Oh, I’ve just begun to traverse the expansive land of flatbreads stretched out before me. I’ll be straight with you: I think you need […]

Red Lentil and Carrot Flatbread

This chickpea flatbread is one of my favourite recipes. I could eat a whole pan of it in less than 24 hours. Scratch that. Full disclosure: I have eaten the entire thing in less than 24 hours. But this flatbread? Well, it may be a new contender for being stuffed in my face the quickest. […]
