2-in1 Recipe: Massaman Curry & Paste

Massaman Curry Paste

I love Thai food – however, saying that, I always get the same dish when I eat out: Massaman Curry. This is one of my all-time favourite curries, but I think a lot of people bypass it for a trusty Pad Thai or Green Thai Curry instead. If you’ve never tried Massaman Curry, now’s your chance!

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

Blogging is definitely more of a winter sport for me; it’s hard to justify sitting in front of a computer when I could be reading in the park on a sunny day – so, sorry about the sparse posts this summer! Once cool weather hits again I will be more diligent about posting regularly. 🙂

I started making gluten free crackers when I wanted to have more quick gluten free snacks on hand. Continue reading

Warm Lentil Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Roasted Root Vegetables

Warm Lentil Salad with Sunflower Seeds & Roasted Root Vegetables

Ok, so this is not the most seasonal of recipes, but a couple weeks ago I had the most fantastic roasted purple carrots in a restaurant, and since then I’ve been on a carrot kick. Growing up, I hated cooked carrots, so this new love of carrots is quite a surprise to me. Continue reading

happy crackers

I wanted to share this recipe for some great looking gluten free crackers made with brown rice and quinoa; I have a cracker recipe that I love, which is pretty similar to these, but uses ground nuts as the base instead. This version would probably be a bit cheaper to make, but still has protein and good fats in there to help keep you feeling full and energized!

The Muffin Myth

Mmmm, crackers. Who doesn’t like crackers? They’re comfort food. They’re convenience food. But healthy food? Usually not. Making crackers is something that has been on my list for ages, and now that I’ve made these I’m wondering why I waited so long. I guess it seemed a bit daunting, but it totally isn’t.

These crackers have something for practically everyone. They’re gluten free, which is a big deal for a lot of folks out there. I’m super lucky, I don’t have trouble digesting really anything, but so many people I know, including some of my closest friends, have some degree of gluten intolerance. I’m trying to better understand gluten intolerance and subsequently, gluten free baking, so when I saw the recipe for these crackers I jumped at the chance to try them out.

These crackers are also vegan, and are also made entirely of whole foods. Don’t let that put…

Superfood Seaweed: Kombu

Kombu

If you had asked me what “kombu” was a few months ago, I would have had no idea what you were talking about (and I think a lot of people living in England or America would have the same response.) So for those of you who are still scratching you head, read on. Continue reading

Hold the Mayo: Rainbow Coleslaw

I have never been a big fan of mayonnaise. Pasta salad, potato salad, and coleslaw have always been dishes I’ve bypassed at picnics and potlucks – sometimes I’d try a bite of pasta salad and think “maybe this time I’ll like it,” but coleslaw never intrigued me Continue reading

Cake & Cocktails: Citrus Polenta Cake & Old Fashioned’s

The other weekend my friends Ruby and Amy came over to my  house for a girl’s afternoon. Our goals for the day were to 1) have some coffee, 2) bake a cake, and 3) drink some G&T’s. We achieved our first two goals, but when we realized we didn’t have any gin, we had to make some Continue reading
