Superfood Seaweed: 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


Mega Omega-3s: Smoked Mackerel Fish Cakes with Oatmeal Crust

Gluten Free Fish Cakes

It’s only been in the past year that I’ve started to eat much fish. Before then, I rarely ate it except for the occasional can of tuna. However, when I became ill with CFS/ME, I started seeing a naturopath, and … Continue reading


The Forest Feast

Blood Orange and Purple Cabbage Salad

This week I want to share my newest favourite blog. (I have a lot of “favourites” but I really can’t get enough of this one!) The Forest Feast is a truly beautiful blog by photographer Erin Gleeson; she has created … 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


2-in-1 Recipe: Crystalized Ginger & Ginger Syrup

One day last year, I somehow ended up with loads of ginger in the fridge; I didn’t want to waste it, so I decided to preserve it by making some crystallized ginger. The great thing about this recipe is that you end up making homemade ginger syrup along with Continue reading

The Science Behind the Dough: Gluten Free Pizza

Since I stopped eating wheat, one of the things I miss the most is pizza. It is easy to find substitutes for some glutenous foods, like pasta and cereal… but I have yet to find a gluten free pizza that replicates the qualities of a sourdough pizza (and whoever eventually invents this will Continue reading


Everything but the Kitchen Sink: Chilli

Growing up, my dad always used to make Chilli for our family when we went skiing in Maine. Loaded with vegetables and protein, it’s the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter night. When I was little, my sisters and I would beg my dad not to put beans in the Chilli– back then I Continue reading


Gnocchi (…nom nom nom)

One of the things I have discovered since going gluten free is that wheat is hiding in just about any packaged food you can buy – breads, pastas, cereals, granola bars, sausages, soy sauce… the list goes on, whether wheat is an actual ingredient or the food is cross-contaminated (because it Continue reading
