Gingered Potatoes with Browned Onions and Tomatoes

I get a lot of questions about the Candida Diet (or Anti-Candida Diet–ACD, as I call it). Most of the time, people either want to know what it is I ate and/or eat now (I outlined the different stages of my diet, and all the foods I ate, on the FAQ page, here). Sometimes, however, […]

Raw Gingersnap Cookie Bon Bons

[Note: this recipe is now available in my cookbook, Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free, along with over 100 more refined sugar-free, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free treats!] [Grab a few of these babies and while away the afternoon. . . . photo credit for photo above: Celine Saki] Seriously, what more do you need than the word […]

Flash in the Pan: Carrot Cake Smoothie & A Weekend Giveaway

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s “no fuss.”  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] [THE GIVEAWAY […]

Double Ginger Quinoa Scones

Seems we all focus on the “main event” meals during the holidays, poring over cookbooks or stressing about which dressing would be best with the tofurkey (okay, I know many of you don’t eat tofurkey–but it’s such a fun word to say, isn’t it?). But what about the meals after the big meals?  What about […]

Über Healthy Kale and Seaweed Salad*

* Or, It’s a Privilege to Eat You (thanks, Whole Foods). Happy “Celebrating Our Country’s Freedom Day” to both Canadians and Americans (and anyone else who’d like to take part in the party!).** And before I forget (because I’m at that age when I do forget), let me also say “THANK YOU”  to everyone for your […]

A Bowl Lotta Love

[Thanks to everyone who left such sweet comments and encouragement for the hellish week of marking!  (And I know I still owe some of you emails. . . coming soon!) Some of you who are students noted that you’d be doing as much work on the other side of the red pen. Whether students, parents, […]

Gastronomic Gifts II: Brandied Apricot-Ginger Spread

[There’s just nothing like a homemade gift for the holidays.  This year, with the purse strings a little tighter than usual, I’m determined to make at least a few in my kitchen–and thought I’d share my ideas in case you’d like to partake, too.  ]   As I’m wont to do during the drive to work, […]

Flash in the Pan: Ginger-Mint Iced Tea

[I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly, or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required.  Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.”] [Thanks to everyone who hazarded guesses about what type of peppers I’ve got flourishing in my backyard. . . […]

Sweet Potato and Ginger Salad

[Sweet Potato and Ginger Salad–recipe below.] Ah, yes, life is sweet.  Not so much in the “I’m a celebrity, I haven’t a care in the world, I’m revoltingly rich, beautiful and vacuous” kind of way; but more in the “every which way I turn I see or think ‘sweet,’ most recently the chocolate chip blondies I devoured last week” kind […]

Pear and Ginger Mini Loaves or Muffins

Necessity is the mother of many a new recipe in our house. Because there are only the two of us (humans) living here (“Don’t forget about us, Mum!“), it’s usually fairly easy to decide what to have for dinner, or what to buy at the grocery store.  My HH and I share many a similar […]
