Gluten-Free Buckwheat Buttermilk Pancakes

I love pancakes. I never used to be a big fan of them, but after going gluten-free, I’ve eaten many a pancake. They are especially a highlight when we go camping. I would throw a handful of chocolate chips in the batter before frying them up, and tell the kids that we had chocolate ants […]

Well, thankfully our electricity was on all night, and we woke up to a nice warm house. Thank goodness for our Manitoba Hydro employees!

Russian Salad

This recipe for Russian Salad was submitted by my Mom. It is a fantastic twist to a regular jello salad.

Broccoli Soup

I was hungry for a broccoli soup the other day, so my little boy & I went off to the grocery store to find some “trees” for our supper. I have never really had a problem getting either of my kids to eat broccoli, so I knew this was going to be a meal that […]

Easy Snickers Bar Pie – Gluten-free too!

Time for something sweet! This Snickers pie was delicious! If you keep some gluten-free chocolate crumbs on hand in the freezer, like I do, it doesn’t take much longer than using a pre-made shell. Plus, instead of getting two pies, I got one large 10″ cake, made in a springform pan. NOTES: I did use […]

Versatile Meatballs with Mushroom Dill Sauce

These Versatile Meatballs with Mushroom Dill Sauce were made by my Mom. The recipe comes from a Church or community cookbook, and it was a base meatball recipe, with different sauces that you could use with them. I think this dill sauce sounds fantastic. By using gluten-free bread crumbs, and a gluten-free cream of mushroom […]
