Vegan Pumpkin Scones

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 […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Ramen in a Mason Jar

Gluten-Free Ramen in a Mason Jar

Mason jar salads have become immensely popular and I think they’re a fantastic idea. And yet I’ve never made one because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a fan of raw salads –  and no adorable mason jar is going to change that. Then a few weeks ago, a friend posted this recipe for travelling […]

Slow Cooker Vegan Split Pea Soup

Three-Ingredient Vegan Split Pea Soup

This easy vegan recipe came to be for two very important reasons. One, I was down to my last few scraps of produce in the fridge. And two, I wanted to create a recipe that our dog Daisy could also enjoy. You see, I’ve been trying to get her to eat more vegetables. Most dog […]

Mini Gluten-Free Brownies with Carob

Mini Gluten-Free Carob Brownies

I have been a longtime carob lover. Carob for-evah! And carob folded into adorable mini gluten-free brownies? All the better. My love of carob doesn’t stem from being raised on a commune with hippie parents who served me broccoli trees and millet. Surprisingly, it comes from attending religious school. Each year on the Jewish holiday […]

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One-pot pasta dishes made a splash in the food world last year, thanks to Martha Stewart. I repeatedly heard from many bloggers and friends that one-pot pasta could not be done with gluten-free pasta because it would become a thick, gluey mess. I never thought to question this, likely a product of my agreeable, conciliatory […]

Curry-Flavoured Lentil and Oat Granola

My mom never bought us sugary breakfast cereals, no matter how much we begged. Our cupboards were crammed with corn flakes, rice krispies, Special K and cheerios. Nothing that strongly influenced the colour of the milk. I considered her denial of froot loops and cinnamon toast crunch downright unfair. In hindsight, I should have shut […]

Homemade Gluten-Free Holiday Food Gifts

I love giving homemade edible gifts for all occasions! They’re thoughtful, unique and tasty, and recipients always appreciate the effort I’ve put into creating them. But I’ll tell you a secret: homemade gluten-free, allergen-friendly gifts are a breeze to make. When you consider driving to the mall, unearthing a parking spot, elbowing your way through […]

Roasted Beet Hummus

Beet-mus (Roasted Beet Hummus)

Well, well, well. Doesn’t this look festive? I strongly suggest you invite roasted beet hummus, or beet-mus as I like to call it, to show its pretty face at your holiday table. Can you schmear it on Brussels sprouts and turkey? No, not so much. But it does make an excellent healthy, allergen-friendly appetizer when […]

Halvah Flavoured Gluten-Free Oats

Halvah Flavoured Oatmeal

In the interest of public service, I strive to come up with healthy breakfast recipes that taste like dessert. I take no pleasure in it, really. I’m simply a humanitarian. I do it for the children. The idea for halvah flavoured oats sparked very suddenly, as many recipe inspirations do, except this one burrowed deeply […]
