This meal is on the table in under thirty minutes, but it sure doesn’t look that way! And all that’s required are some chicken breasts, an orange, a few odds ‘n ends, and some spices. The recipe is versatile too – feel like an Asian influence – add more gf soy sauce, ginger, and peppers. Looking for something fresh and fruity, cut back on the spices and let the orange shine through. Truly easy peasy! (Scroll down for the recipe.)

As we’ve said before, come January we start pulling out the slow cooker for some mid-winter comfort foods. But slow cookers can be used for more than roasting and stewing, as this gluten free slow cooker bread demonstrates! This bread is heavy and sweet like a rye bread but I think my favorite thing about it is that it actually GETS BETTER WITH AGE! It’s good on the day you bake it, better the next day, and at its best the day after that. I think it’s the almond flour that keeps it moist and gets better as it slowly absorbs all the flavours. Whatever the reason, it’s not until day four that this bread finally starts to dry out and lose flavour. (I only know this because Geoff and I showed severe restraint while watching a wonderful golden loaf age away on our counter top. Four days was as much as we could take!) If you don’t like having a freezer full of half eaten loaves of gf bread, and you do like a heavy artisan-style loaf that has just a hint of Danish rye flavour, this is the recipe for you!

Based on my great-grandmother’s recipe for Danish Apple Cake, this gluten free no-bake cake tastes like apple pie but won’t overheat your kitchen. It’s also super-easy to throw together and can be made the day before making it the perfect dessert for a busy summer BBQ. Give it a try. You won’t regret it!

If you’re like us, right now you want something as far away from ham or turkey as absolutely possible. And if you were the one cooking all those hams and turkeys, right about now you are likely looking for something simple, something you can throw together in under half an hour. Enter: salmon cakes. They taste fantastic, are easy to make, and use ingredients that are easily at hand. If you like salmon, you’ll love these! (Scroll down or click on ‘continue reading’ for the recipe)

For some reason, gluten free breakfasts seem to be hard to come by. Until Geoff was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had no idea how many breakfast foods contain gluten! His go-to breakfast is a home blend of different gf cereals but even this got a little boring after a while. In an attempt to mix things up a bit, we came came up with this recipe for gluten free breakfast tarts. Kind of like a gf mini-quiche, they use gluten free pancake mix to help them puff up nice and fluffy and to create their own light, cake-like pastry crust. Good hot or cold, they are a bit of a lifesaver on busy mornings – just make extra the first day and pull them out of the fridge as needed! They are also incredibly versatile. By adding different fillings, you can continually create new savoury flavours!

Well, the holidays are over and if you’re like me, you’re now thinking of ways to shed those extra holiday pounds! Salads are a great way to do just that, but when you live as far north as we do, it’s very likely -20 degrees Celsius and snowing outside, and a cold salad is just not all that appealing. In January, when I’m staring down three or four more months of winter, I want something comforting – something that will warm me up from the inside – and something that will help me recover from my holiday food hangover! This vegetable soup certainly fits the bill. Great with or without beef, it’s hearty, delicious, low calorie, and comforting.
This soup freezes well so make extra and store it for quick lunches or dinners on those busy winter days. If you are like Geoff and prefer something more substantial, this recipe can easily be converted into a quick vegetable or hamburger stew that can be served on a bed of rice. Scroll down or click on “continue reading” for both soup and stew recipes.
This soup pairs well with our

These dinner rolls are soft and yeasty with a tender bite. They are also sweet making them good all on their own, divine with a bit of butter or margarine, and perfect for those turkey or ham bunwiches over the holiday season! Mmmmmm. A bit of ham, a slice of swiss or cheddar, and some Dijon mustard. Heaven!
Below you’ll find recipes for either white or brown buns. The photo above is a white dinner roll. We prefer the nuttiness of the teff in the brown buns but they aren’t quite as photogenic!

I think mincemeat tarts are my absolute favorite Christmas treat. They are another long time Christmas tradition in my family. My mom used to make dozens and dozens of these little sweet treats when my sisters, brother and I were little. Of course, they were off limits for us kids but we would still sneak a few now and then from where they were hidden in the bottom of the deep freeze (and by ‘now and then’ I mean ‘daily’). To this day I think I like them best when they are frozen solid!
Anyway, after Geoff was diagnosed with celiac disease, we went went without these for a Christmas or two. Then mom developed her awesome gluten free pastry recipe and since then has made us a batch every year. Thanks mom! I honestly cannot tell the difference between these and the old glutenous version.
