Ashley is back with a recipe today for a quinoa & potato salad.  We’ve been having a blast this week with all of our Vegan MoFo posts, and Ash is rocking her Insanity workouts!!  I’m totally loving how creating all of these recipes for Vegan MoFo has got me spending more time in the kitchen.  […]

Gluten-Free Cappuccino Quinoa Muffins

My lovely friend Nicole and I are both members of our local art gallery. While we were there, we got to talking about what I’d been cooking lately. I told her all about Ashley’s Fatayer, and about our new breakfast favourite (a variation on my Huevos Mildred, recipe coming soon).  We got so excited about […]

You know those days when you just want something sweet, and you have nothing in your house? I hope this is the remedy to that problem for you.

Quinoa Salad with Cilantro Mint Pesto

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, […]

Why I Teach Gluten-Free (and Vegan!) Bread Baking Classes

It all started with my friend, Ashley. You could, in fact, call her my gluten-free muse! You see, Ashley follows a gluten-free and vegan lifestyle (which, as Meghan Telpner is fond of saying, has cured an incurable disease – Crohn’s). And when you are vegan and gluten-free, you can have some challenges around finding versions […]

Lavender & Lemon Quinoa Bars

Ok, food blogging is just so neat! I love the reciprocal recipe factor:  The Lavender & Lemon Pound Cake I created (based on this recipe) became these Lavender, Lemon and Honey Soft Oat Bars  over at one of my most favourite blogs: Food Blog and the Dog.  So of course, I had to see if […]

Eggplant, Lentil & Quinoa Casserole

This is a variation on a casserole I’ve been making for the last couple of years whenever I need a week’s worth of something healthy on hand. It combines a balance of protein, grains, and veggies, so it works really well when I have a crazy busy week and need to grab and go! I […]
