Pear Butter

I made this pear butter a while ago but just never blogged it. It is really tasty on your toast in the morning, or even over some ice cream in the evening. You could still make this now to put into gift baskets for Christmas. Something that is homemade and can be used up make […]

Mojito Chicken

This chicken was a lot of fun to make. It used methods I hadn’t done before, but were simple to do. It had a rub, a marinade, and then a glaze, so it had great flavour! I know it has a few steps, but it really does not take long to make at all, don’t […]

Gluten-Free Brownies

After reading this recipe on Mennonite Girls Can Cook (and yes, they can) I knew this was a recipe I wanted to try. I found some coconut flour at Bulk Barn when we went to the city, and have since gotten more, so I can make more brownies. These made really, really good brownies. Not […]

Gluten-free Pumpkin Pecan Tarts

I made these mini pies using a new GF crust recipe. I was very happy with this crust recipe, it was tender, and even slightly flaky. However, I only had to roll the dough into small balls & place in a mini muffin tin (to make mini tarts). I never had to roll out a […]

These potatoes make a great side dish. They are easy to do, have a great base flavour from the herbs & spices, and the balsamic vinegar gives them a really great kick of flavour at the end. Delicious!

This ice cream tastes just like pumpkin pie, with the wonderful taste of pumpkin, and the great blend of spices. With the heavy cream & egg yolks, it makes a really […]

Gluten-Free Gingersnap Cookies

Alright, holiday baking is starting to come to mind, and these cookies are great for then (although, I do them year round). They have the right amount of spices, they had a great texture, even days later, and they were a nice chewy gingersnap cookie. Delicious! Definitely add this to your “must try” list. I’ll […]

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

This soup is so easy to make, but has such a great flavour. We all really liked this soup, right down to the 3 year old. My husband even asked that this recipe be put into regular rotation. It’s a nice change from the Veggie Chowder that I usually make.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have never done as much baking with pumpkin as I have this year. We grew our own pumpkins this past summer. Two varieties; the jack-o-lantern pumpkins and the pie pumpkins. We had a lot of fun with the jack-o-lantern pumpkins, and make some pretty amazing Halloween decorations, as well as donated a number of […]
