Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Gluten-Free Muffins

There’s a gluten-free and vegan bakery in Toronto, called Bunner’s.  They are famous for their cinnamon buns, and I’ve been dying to go visit to try them.  My personal trainer, Neil, really loves their cinnamon buns, and was trying to get me to go for a long bike ride with the temptation of gluten-free cinnamon […]

Gluten-Free Lavender-Lemon Pistachio Cake

We’ve been fortunate enough to celebrate special occasions with our extended family lately.  And whenever we do, we meet at my parents’ house, and my Mum lays out a gorgeous spread.  And my job is to bring dessert, which I am more than happy to do! For one of our family dinners, I wanted to […]

Gluten-Free Lemon Madeleines

One of my favourite desserts from my gluten-eating-days-of-yore was a madeleine, the perfect little French cake. The French author, Marcel Proust, waxed poetic about his madeleines and how they evoked involuntary memories, but I just love how they taste.  And they’re best when they’re light and fluffy, and you can dip them into a cup […]

Vegan Cashew Cheese

So what’s a girl to do when her fridge is full of Brown Rice Rejuvelac? Why, make vegan cheese, of course!!! Blogging along with this year’s Vegan MoFo challenge really got me thinking about what foods I like that are both vegan and gluten-free… and I got sad when cheese wasn’t on that list. So […]

Quinoa Tabbouleh Stuffed Bell Peppers

I had some of my bridesmaids over for a lovely tea cocktail party, and we of course needed nibblies. The morning of the party, I was preparing all of my dips, spreads, gluten-free crackers, and cocktail ingredients. I then hopped in the shower and had a brainwave! I had mini bell peppers in the fridge, […]

India: Spice Plantations in Goa & Periyar

One very last India post for you — and this is one of my favourite recaps! We were lucky to go to two different spice plantations when we were in South India: one in Goa, and one in Periyar (Kerala).  The pictures in this post are from both spots. We had two lovely guides, both […]

Honey-Roasted Parsnip and Carrot Salad

Israeli Couscous Salad with Honey-Roasted Parsnips & Carrots

We’ve been doing a lot of salads around here lately, and it’s been a lot of the same thing over and over again… delicious versions of either our veggie Caesar salad over Romaine or my lemony arugula salad.  But after a while, 2 salad options get a bit tiring, but we still want salad.  So […]
