Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Tart (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)

Halloween week without chocolate is simply a crime. We must fill our quota! Luckily, I have the perfect solution.. After teasing you with this dessert the other week (and seeing you lose your mind over it) I figured I better deliver the goods. I set a lofty goal of making this chocolate pie as friendly […]

IMG_7737-2

My gluten-free and vegan baking adventures continue! [See post 1 here] This time, I’m using a gluten-free flour called Teff Flour. Have you heard of Teff flour before? [Source] I hadn’t until I looked through the Clean Start and Clean Food Cookbooks. Teff flour is not only gluten-free, but it’s high in protein, iron, calcium, […]

IMG_0406

Before we get to these fudgy cookie dough cups, let’s talk about the June salad challenge for a sec. I never thought I would get such a positive response about a salad challenge of all things, but your response blew me away. I’ve already seen many of you blogging and tweeting about it, creating #saladaday […]

One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)

Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

Our Perfect Veggie Burger

IMG_8700

For the past several months, I’ve been on a quest to make a veggie burger that had everything on our wish list. I’ve probably made over 100 veggie burgers and they all came up short, either by just a tiny bit or by a landslide. I’m always asked what I do with failed recipes and […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch ‘Blizzard’

IMG_8552

Last night, I made a new veggie burger recipe. Don’t get too excited though, they were crap. I’m super picky when it comes to veggie burgers and I rarely meet one that I’m happy with. Eric goes, ‘They’d be good without all the lemon…’ ‘They are rosemary lemon burgers.’ ‘Oh…hah’ Fail. I also won’t tell […]

Springtime Strawberry Lime Mango Crisp (Vegan + GF)

strawberrymangocrisp-7332

Dear Mom, If we lived close by, I would make you this strawberry mango crisp for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s pretty, bubbly, and sweet, with many different layers. Just like you. There’s a nutty layer too – wink, wink. (Two teenage girls in the house can do that to a person!) When I think back […]

Summer Fever Strawberry Lime Granita…just 4-ingredients!

IMG_0494

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]
