A Trip Through London’s Borough Market

No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Tart (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free & Vegan!)

One of my very favourite flavour combinations is dark chocolate + fresh raspberries.  I’ve put the combo into a gluten-free tart before, with my Raspberry Dark Chocolate Tart.  But it uses both cream and butter — and I want my dairy-free friends to be able to have dessert too… especially as I was invited for […]

Phở Gà (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup)

Gluten-Free Pork Meatballs

It’s official.  These meatballs are so good I’ve been making them weekly since last fall!  When we run out, I have a need to make more. I was inspired by Michelle’s Asian Meatballs over at Nom Nom Paleo, where the original recipe uses ground beef, sweet potato, shiitake mushrooms, and cilantro. As those are all […]

Oh, BBC Good Food — everything you tell me to make is delicious, so I love you.  I first discovered you when Louise made your Gluten-free Chilli Cornbread… and ohhhhh that’s a delicious cornbread.  Now, anytime I need new recipes (especially as I’m learning to cook meaty meals for the first time), I come to […]

Around here, we have a few meals that have become staples in our weeknight rotation: […]

Boiled Orange and Almond Cake from "Good Food Fast" by Jason Roberts | kitchenoperas.com

Boiled Orange and Almond Cake from “Good Food Fast”

Don’t you just love when an idea and a plan of attack come together at once? I was reading an article by Sam Worley on Epicurious about baking with citrus, and how to use the whole fruit for extra flavour. Worley recommends soaking or simmering slices of orange (rind and all!) in simple syrup… so […]
