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 […]

2015 From Scratch Charity Cookbook

From Scratch Cookbook for Charity

It doesn’t escape me that the concept of food blogging might seem wasteful, extravagant or downright silly to those who don’t have enough to eat. Even healthy eating concerns must seem trite to someone with an empty belly: does it matter if that apple is organic or local or non-GMO when you’re scrambling to satisfy […]

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 […]

Healthy Gluten-Free Nanaimo Bars

Lentil-Spiked Nanaimo Bars (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

The last time I created Nanaimo bars five years ago, they were dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free. But they weren’t exactly healthy, since they were full of white sugar and fake vegan margarine and processed gluten-free graham crackers. It’s been on my mind for a while to recreate a new version using whole food ingredients, but […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free, Vegan Avocado Toast

Simple Avocado Toast + A Vegan Omega-3 Giveaway

Writing a food blog pushes me to innovate and create, because I’m a creature of habit. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not the meticulous kind of gal who eats the exact same things over and over, like your ‘ol Gramps who begins the day with a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of prunes. I […]

Gluten-Free Spaghetti Pie

My Favourite Recipes of 2014

These are not the most popular or most-viewed recipes in 2014. This is a list of my favourite recipes from the last year, because it’s my blog and I can do what I want. 1. Chocolate-Covered Medjool Date Bars This is what happens when you blend caramel-y Medjool dates with nuts and drench them with […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Allergen-Friendly Gingerbread Cookies

Holiday Gingerbread Cookies: Gluten-Free, Vegan, Nut-Free

I have a treat for you today: gingerbread cookies that you can roll out into gingerbread men or stars or houses or whatever your little heart desires. Roll-out cookies are notoriously difficult to create gluten-free, because when the gluten isn’t there to hold everything together, you’ll often end up with loads of rips and tears […]
