Oh chocolate cake, how I love you. After I cut out gluten I had tried a few different recipes for chocolate cake and none were particularly tasty. I always compared it to my Mom's chocolate cake which is hands-down THE best cake ever. Not an exaggeration. So I knew that I needed to recreate her recipe and make it gluten free. Luckily the secret ingredient remained the same...
Summer is here and that means... grill all the things! Bonus points if it's skewers because food just tastes better on a stick right?? Anytime you fire up the grill if instantly feels like summer but one you combine that feeling with the fresh and bright flavours of these mango lime chicken skewers, it really is a match made in heaven.
Traditional gummy treats get a bad rap because they are typically laden with artificial sweeteners, colours, and flavours. Yuck! But when you make homemade gummies you can make them super healthy! Keep reading to see what makes these gummies so darn good for you!
This buddha bowl is the perfect summer lunch! With this heat wave, I am craving fresh, and cooling meals. The sesame ginger dressing really adds kick of flavour as well!
Paleo, vegan options, gluten-free, grain-free
Happy Canada day! These strawberry bars will make the perfect patriotic addition to your long weekend plans but whether you're Canadian or not you'll love these tasty treats! Plus they are paleo, with a vegan option as well!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mama’s out there! What better day to share the story of how I became a Mom? Time to go grab a cup of tea and settle in, this is a long one. People asked me all throughout my pregnancy if I would share my birth story once the baby was born, I honestly hadn't given it much thought until closer to my due date once I started reading birth stories online. I love that each woman's story is different. Note, this is not a horror story of labour and delivery. Did unexpected things come up? Yes, but it was such a positive experience and I wouldn't change a thing... ok maybe a couple things but I'll explain later.
Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, paleo
With Mother's Day coming up this weekend it's a great time to treat your Mama with these blueberry scones and a cup of tea. Or if you're a Mama, maybe print off this recipe and casually leave it on the counter as a subtle hint of something you'd like to see on your breakfast in bed tray ;)
Paleo, vegan, keto, dairy-free
Is there a better dip than spinach and artichoke? Not in my mind! I love a good spinach and artichoke dip with veggies but after going dairy-free a few years back (about 5 years now), I figured that I'd have to give that up too. But this is just as good as the real deal, maybe even better!
Spring is finally here and it has me craving all the fresh, citrus flavours. That even includes sweet treats, which is a departure from my usual chocolate treats but lemon sweets are my hubby's favourite. So I was inspired to create a healthier version of the classic lemon poppy seeds loaf and it definitely does not disappoint!
I love having different flavours of salad dressing on hand and once I realized how easy it is to make my own salad dressing I haven't looked back. I especially love these mason mason jar dressings because you can just add all the ingredients into the jar, give is a good shake and ta-da, all done! These are obviously all great on salads but I often use them to season meat and veggies when I'm cooking as well.
