I couldn’t let Valentine’s Day arrive without popping back on the blog to say hello and wish you all a very sweet day with your loved ones this week!

Today, please welcome Wendy from Cooking Quinoa. Wendy is one of those bloggers I admired from afar for some time before we finally met online.

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 RickiHeller.com

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, […]

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

SONY DSC

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 […]
