These black bean brownies can be quite satisfying and they’re great for those that need gluten free, lactose free […]

I had a fun conversation with some lovely people on Twitter today about Biscotti.  I am a HUGE lover of cookies of any kind…but I have to say I have a rather strong affinity for biscotti.  I have been on a journey of health and wellness for sometime now and have come to the point where […]

I don’t know about you…but I LOVE PIZZA.  I mean what is there not to love? Delicious soft fluffy bread, cheese, and all the yummy extras you can think of, and then there’s the crispy thin crust type…oh…

Now as much I love pizza…it does NOT love me back.  The dough kills my gut, the cheese […]

Although I have pretty much eliminated simple sugar from my life every once in a while I will feel deprived like anyone else.   Let’s be honest here…sometimes fruit just doesn’t cut it when you want a little treat or something yummy with your afternoon coffee or evening tea.  I have my backup a few yummy […]

Thanksgiving has come and gone in both Canada and the United States.  There are so many lovely leftovers sitting in many fridges and freezers that all I’ve been able to think about is Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie.

This recipe is one of the easiest and most flavorful EVER!  You don’t even have to fuss with […]

I’ve always wanted to write a blog, probably because I always have so much to say.  But then I thought…just because I have so much to say and I’m so opinionated doesn’t make it interesting to others.  Today as […]

Gluten Free Oatmeal, Pecan, Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been on this journey of health and wellness for 9 months now.  Learning to make every meal a thoughtful experience has been a journey in and of itself.  Learning to have an “off button” and say no to the foods that not only pack on the pounds but also make me sick – another […]

Homemade Gluten-Free Granola


Homemade Granola
I love this granola recipe because each time I make it I think of something else to throw in! I’m not a lover of dried fruit, or chocolate chips so I never use them, but you might like them! We love to use this on top of Greek yogurt or even just to snack […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Hi All,

This is not necessarily one of my “healthy” recipes, but it’s really not a horrible treat.  I do try to stay away from white flour and refined sugar, but this is such a yummy fudgy little cake it hits the spot when I really need something on the “naughty” list.
