Anti-Candida New year's recipes on

As this year winds down, I’ve been thinking about the blog over the past 12 months  resolutions for the year  how much I hate winter what to serve on New Year’s Eve. Having had such a low-key Christmas made it easy for me: I’m cooking up the same holiday menu I had planned for that […]

Chocolate Chestnut Mousse Tarts with Shortbread Crust for Club House

Vegan, gluten-free chocolate chestnut mousse tart recipe with Club House products

Because his father was Scottish, the HH is very particular about his shortbread. Since his mother never learned to bake, however, he grew up thinking that “real” shortbread came in a box. (But hey, he was very particular about which box).

Caramel Apple Crumble Torte

Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Vegan Caramel Apple Crumble torte recipe on

Our holiday traditions were always a bit different from those of my friends growing up. Foods that were festive staples on most other people’s tables (like that caramel apple crumble torte up there) never seemed to make their way to our house for some reason. While my friends feasted on things like roast turkey, ham, […]

Almost Instant Pumpkin Porridge for Attune Foods


Isn’t it funny how, as soon as autumn rolls around, everyone starts thinking about pumpkin? And while pumpkin on its own is a low-fat, high-fiber, nutrient-packed whole food, most of the pumpkin-related recipes I see on blogs and food sites don’t exactly encourage healthy eating habits: pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, pumpkin cinnamon […]

Vegan, gluten free, creamy chickpea pasta casserole recipe for Attune Foods

Does this casserole bring back memories for you, too? Yes, it’s vegan, gluten-free and made of whole foods, but it’s modeled on one from my childhood. Although I’d been baking (with Mom’s help) since I was six, it wasn’t until my teens that I cooked my first savory dish. The first dinner I cooked for […]

After School Energy Cookies for Attune Foods


Even though I haven’t been a student for some time, every year around this time, I get the back-to-school itch. I love the energy, the excitement, the fresh notebooks and pencils. (I’m weird that way). I know many moms who face the daily challenge of creating healthy, appetizing and allergy-friendly packable lunches, but I also […]

Grown Up Superfood Cookies


It doesn’t happen often, but still, there are some days when I think, “Man, getting older sucks.” (And then I quickly remember, “but it beats the alternative.”). Still, I find it’s a common occurrence lately to wake up the morning after a workout and feel my muscles aching as I climb the stairs (I keep […]

I’m amazed at how the summer is just flying by (especially since here in Toronto, it’s barely begun. . . we’ve had such weird weather so far!).  Once again last week you amazed me with all the fabulous recipes. I think summer would be a great time to […]
