Sometimes you just need chocolate, but you don’t have any in the house. Well these no-bake cookies are ready in less than 20 minutes, without any baking required.

Heather’s Chocolate Banana Pie

So remember the perfect pie dish that I got from Heather for Christmas, that we used for Heather’s Mushroom, Leek and Lentil Pie?  Well, we thought it was time to make a sweet pie in it! Heather loves the combination of chocolate and bananas, and said I could go to town creating a recipe.  So […]

Baked Apple Cranberry Steel Cut Oatmeal

I needed a healthy breakfast that was easy and quick in the mornings.  So I found something that I could make once and then keep around to heat quickly in the mornings and get my nutrition in without thinking!  I’d been seeing baked oatmeal all around the blogosphere, and decided I needed to make a […]

The boyfriend and I have really enjoyed watching old episodes from a TV show called the Supersizers series this year.  The show is hosted by Giles Coren and Sue Perkins, who spend a week reenacting interesting time periods, like the Edwardian or Regency Eras. In one of their shows, they revisit Wartime Britain — where […]

Millet & Ginger Muffins

I am currently in a breakfast phase where all I want to eat is muffins. Last week they were Meghan‘s Vegan & Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins (yum!), and this week I wanted something with even more fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and crystallized ginger are my go-to fall baking spices, and they are great in […]

Blueberry Ginger Oat & Quinoa Granola with Lemon

Inspired by the great success of my Cherry Almond Granola, and having run out (after much Greek-yogurt-breakfast & handfuls-for-snacks gobbling, plus a prezzie for Mum), it was time for a new granola. And I wanted to play around with the flavours; the idea of ginger & lemon zest in a granola had been calling to […]

Gluten-Free Rhubarb Pear & Ginger Crisp with Polenta Topping

Ohhh, David Lebovitz.  You have changed my life with your idea of polenta in a crisp topping so that the crisp stays crisp! And Meghan, thank you for showing me that coconut oil tastes even better than butter (*gasp*, yes, I said it!) atop fresh fruit. Crisps are such an easy dessert!  You cut up […]
