Apple Pumpkin Crumble Bars (ACD Friendly)

[photo: Celine Saki] During a conversation about something entirely unrelated yesterday, the HH uttered that well-known truism:  “There are only two things you can really count on:  death, and taxes.” Well, I have to tell you (and I said this to the HH, too, of course), that hasn’t quite been my experience.  For instance, I’ve found […]

It’s the Berries: Stevia-Sweetened, Gluten Free Blueberry-Lemon Muffins

I know; who says things like, “It’s the berries” any more? Okay, well, I admit that I do.  I also say “take umbrage” (and said it even before I knew the Harry Potter connection), “just chillaxin’” and, sometimes, “the cat’s pyjamas” (but only when I feel like teasing The Girls). But honestly, this recent revision in my […]

[With baked beets and avocado over mesclun greens] For those of you who’ve decided, as I have, to really appreciate the home front this Labor Day weekend (read: can’t afford to go away), hope you’re enjoying some wonderful weather!  If you’re in the Toronto area, drop by to see me and say “hi” at Ambrosia […]

Grain Free Coconut Flour Biscuits

[Grain-free biscuits as a base for Nectarine Shortcakes. . . ACD-friendly!] Today’s post will be a short one*, as I’m still frantically marking essays in preparation for our final exams tomorrow (and then more marking!).  But I’ve been wanting to post this for days and have been too busy baking up a storm for yesterday’s Breakfast Television […]
