Gluten-free Rhubarb Crisp

Every spring, I wait for the stalks of rhubarb to spring forth from the ground. Rhubarb is a fairy hardy plant, but whether it will survive our cold Manitoba winters is another thing. But, once those green leaves start to emerge from the ground and uncurl, and the red stalks start to appear, it is […]

Gluten-free Rhubarb Coffee Cake

This gluten-free Rhubarb Coffee Cake was perfect. In fact, it was perfect to sit and have coffee with a dear friend on the deck, soaking up some rays (the day it was warm in Manitoba) and catching up with each other, and eating this cake.

Gluten-free Chocolate-Chocolate Trifle

This Gluten-free Chocolate-Chocolate Trifle was SO good! No one would even guess it was gluten-free, unless you tell them. I tweaked a chocolate cake recipe that I’ve used in the past, made some homemade chocolate pudding, and did a flavoured whipped cream. You could use instant chocolate pudding and a tub of Cool Whip to make […]

Gluten-free Chocolate Oatmeal Chews

It is another dark, rainy, windy, cold day here in Manitoba. I know…you’re jealous, right?? Come on, admit it. OK, I don’t even want to be here right now. As the long weekend approaches, we’re really hoping that the temperatures will rise a bit. The camper is being loaded, the kids are excited, and we’re […]

Gluten-free Fruit Pizza

  My Mother-in-Law has made fruit pizza for quite a few desserts. It is something that everyone likes, and the bright colours really show that spring is (finally) arriving. But, since celiac disease has entered the family, things needed to be changed up a bit. The last time we got together for supper, I brought […]
