Fresh Crustless Strawberry Pie

Being diagnosed with celiac disease not that long ago, I’ve been on the look out for recipes that are naturally gluten free. Not something that I have to convert over to gluten-free, or figure out which additives will be necessary to make this dough behave the way regular, gluten-filled doughs would. I’ve found some great […]

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream

I love ice cream. What’s not to love? It is a nice sweet, cool treat, that isn’t too heavy, but can be created in an array of palate pleasing flavours. Pure pleasure. When I was diagnosed with celiacs disease, I was rather surprised to read that many ice creams contained wheat. Ugh, how could that […]

Chicken Salad

This recipe was initially called “Holiday Chicken Salad”. I am thinking the one who named it was thinking of Christmas, because of the dried cranberries. However, I would say this works quite well as a summer holiday (as in vacation) salad as well. The flavours really went very well together, and it made a great […]

Fresh Cooked Strawberry Jam

After much waiting & anticipating, strawberry season has finally hit Manitoba. Because of a cool spring, the berries are about two weeks later than they normally would be. Strawberry season was anticipated at our house because we already ran out our homemade strawberry jam in April! Apparently my children really, really like it with their […]

Cool off with Frozen Fudge Pops

Don’t they just melt your heart? Awww…here is a picture of my sweet little angels, after their bath, enjoying a nice cold Fudge Pop to end the day. These fudge pops are super simple to make, but taste great! Since they use a package of instant pudding mix, the variety of flavours that you can […]

Mocha Mousse Torte (flourless)

Since going gluten free nearly 2 1/2 months ago, I have enjoyed finding recipes that are naturally gluten free. Not things that need rice flour, xanthan gum, or unflavoured gelatin. It is easy to find main dish recipes that are gluten free, because after all, your raw veggies and unprocessed meat from the local butcher […]
