I even posted one many years ago, back in the days when I ate eggs and white sugar and peanut butter like it was going out of style.

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous?

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous?

Is baking with flaxseeds dangerous? An excellent question! Five and a half years ago, I wrote a blog post answering this question. Well, sort of.

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 […]

Sunbutter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

To illustrate the wonder and delight of these cookies, I’ll recount the exchange I had with my husband after I baked them. Husband: (with his mouthful of cookie) These are really good. Me: Do they taste like peanut butter and jelly? Husband: (looking concerned) Yes. Why? Aren’t these peanut butter and jelly? Me: Yes, there’s […]

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 […]
