Creamy Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes

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.

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’ve met other bloggers (what a great community we have here on the World Wide Web), and fantastic readers that are getting excited about the potential that their kitchen holds for them. Some were feeling overwhelmed, beaten down, or discouraged with their […]

Greek Quinoa Salad

Yum! If I had the ingredients on hand, I’d make this Greek Quinoa Salad again. But, I don’t have any feta cheese. Or quinoa right now either. Shoot, guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait a little longer.  We (read “the adults”) really loved this salad. I can’t wait until the summer, when […]

Gluten Free Chicken Stir Fry

Back in the pre gluten-free days, my husband & I enjoyed having stir fry for supper. It became a thing of the past with the Celiac diagnosis, because I only knew how to make stiry-fry using the little packages of seasoning mixes that you find in the grocery store. You know the ones…just add water […]
