Southwest Chicken Mango Quinoa

I love quinoa. Ask me 2 years ago, and I’d never heard of it. Weird how 2 years ago, one hadn’t ever heard of an ancient grain before, but so it goes! I love how quick it cooks up (perfect for those “What’s for supper today” days). I love the nutty flavour it has behind […]

Colorful Grilled Corn Salad

Welcome to August! Wow, where on earth is the summer going? We’ve been having a fantastic summer so far, I just can’t believe how quickly it is flying by. We will need to do some back-to-school shopping soon, I guess. I love buying the new markers, pencils and supplies for the kids, but this year, […]

Creamy Quinoa Apple Crunch

Alright, everyone. The Philly judges have spoken, and this Baking Beauty is not going to the finals in Toronto. I do feel that they made an error, because I not only make AMAZING food using the cream cheese, but I also do it gluten-free. Which, in my books, is rockin’ it! But, so it goes. […]

These tomatoes are stuffed with the super healthy, gluten-free, grain-like seed called quinoa. Most of the flavour comes from using the Garlic and Herb flavoured cream cheese. Super simple to make, yet impressive looking and most importantly, delicious! This dish goes great with steak, chicken, or fish.

Creamy Asparagus Soup

I know this Creamy Asparagus Soup may not look like much, but it is so delicious. The adults loved it, the kids loved it, what more do you need to make a great soup? This soup did have the asparagus tips in there, but you know what? They sink. So, although they were there, they […]

Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad

This salad isn’t a Waldorf salad in the traditional sense, but it takes a lot of the same great flavours of a Waldorf salad, and combines it with the power-house seed, quinoa. I made this Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad for supper one day while we were having BBQ beef ring and potato salad, it was […]

Gluten Free Falafels

Something you may not know about me (or maybe just forgot, haha). I have the WORST memory. I can’t remember movies we’ve seen, places we’ve been, people we’ve met, or places we’ve been. It’s rough. I really feel sorry for my husband. He’ll try to talk about something from our dating days, and I can’t […]

Refried Beans

I love foods with a Mexican flare. I like the cheeses, the spices, it’s all good. And like most things, homemade Refried Beans taste better than those that you can get in a can. Those in a can, they do when you need to add them to a casserole, or something like that. but, I […]
