Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

pumpkinpiesquaresvegan-2816

After my last post, I knew I was destined to make a dessert using my gluten-free graham crackers. It’s just the right thing to do. Plus, a girl can only eat so many graham crackers for breakfast! You can imagine how nervous I felt testing this recipe – not knowing if it would turn out […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Graham Crackers

I’ve been in denial about this whole “November” thing. And this whole dark-at-5pm-thing. Ouch. The fall season is passing before my eyes. Suddenly, the nights feel super long and I’m going a bit stir crazy. Instead of resisting it, I’ve taken up evening hot yoga a few times a week. It just feels so good […]

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars-8721

Magical Coconut Bars were always one of my favourite dessert squares growing up, next to Nanaimo bars. In my younger mind, the sweeter the dessert, the better. The words “too sweet” just weren’t in my vocabulary back then.   Fortunately, for my body (and cavity-prone teeth) I outgrew this mindset, embracing lighter, slightly earthier versions of […]

Chunky Cinnamon Raisin Nut Butter Recipe

I’ve been on a total nut butter gifting spree lately. By the time I’m finished rattling all these nuts in my food processor, I may need a very strong hearing aid. Eric is convinced I’m slowly going deaf, so I guess covering my ears for dear life while processing nuts isn’t helping much. These things […]

Lately, our favourite thing to do at night is go look at Christmas lights. Now that we live in a city again, it’s much easier to find rows and rows of houses all lit up within walking or driving distance. On warmer evenings, we bundle up in our cold-weather gear and head out for a […]

Vegan & Gluten-Free Florentines (almond lace cookies)

vegan florentine cookies lace-8499

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for almost a full year. How does that even happen? The truth is, I made these cookies on January 1st 2012 (I know, what killer timing to make cookies), but I figured posting a cookie recipe on the first day of the year was akin to posting a salad […]

gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies-8400

So begins the time of the year when it’s totally acceptable to have a freezer bursting with cookies. There’s always something on hand for unexpected guests, not to mention evening nibbles while cozied up in front of the TV, which we’ve been kinda glued to lately (oops). My friends and family are about to be […]

drop biscuits-7978

Last week, I set on a mission to create a quick and easy biscuit recipe free from shortening, butter, or lard. In terms of easy biscuit recipes, I knew a drop biscuit would fit the bill. When I’m making a meal around the holidays the last thing I want to add to my list is […]
