As soon as October hits, I can’t wait to make pumpkin muffins! The end of the month is Hubs’ birthday and he always requests two things to celebrate; these pumpkin spice muffins and the gluten free pumpkin pie we shared yesterday. The added benefit of course is that I get to enjoy them too!
Today is Hubs’ birthday! Instead of cake, he requests a gluten free pumpkin pie each year. Making gluten free pie crust is always hit and miss with me – mostly miss. Luckily these days, just about every supermarket carries frozen gluten free crusts – such a huge convenience!
This chimichurri pizza is all about the chimichurri pizza sauce!
You won’t believe how fast and easy chicken mole is until you try making it in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot! Traditionally, chicken mole is a slowly simmered complex dish with a long ingredient list. But cooking this dish under pressure means fewer ingredients and melds all the flavours in a fraction of the time. This easy chicken mole recipe cooks up so quickly.
There’s nothing better than the texture of crispy pan fried tofu! The secret to that crunch is one simple ingredient, which we’ll get to later.
We’ve never attempted a recipe for homemade ketchup – until now. Although we’ve been health conscious for years, we’ve tried some of the best organic and keto ketchups – but finding a great commercial one with no added sugar has been elusive. Truth be told, I’ve never really enjoyed the overly sweet Heinz ketchup, even when we weren’t sugar free. I don’t know why it took us so long. Making your own recipe for homemade ketchup couldn’t be easier!
Just because it’s ‘sugar free’ though, doesn’t mean the recipe isn’t sweetened at all. We’re using brown sugar Swerve, and raisins with natural sugar, to balance the acidic vinegars.
A few days ago, we showed you how to remove a sticky label from glass to recycle. It does a great job of storing this recipe for homemade ketchup!
Although I serve this mango and avocado slaw dish with cod as the protein, I adapt the recipe for Hubs.
Do you have picky eaters in your household too? If so, you can make this same dish, but just switch out the protein. So while I make this with fish for me, I cook chicken for him and serve it with the same mango and avocado slaw. And we’re both happy!
My zucchini tofu lasagna turned out unexpectedly amazing, which is why it’s a zucchini lasagna with a twist. Noodle-less lasagna is a great concept in theory but when put into practice with zucchini as a substitute, you may find your favourite Italian cuisine drowning in water.
I was inspired by my sister for this vegetarian lasagna. Her version of zucchini lasagna, while really good flavour-wise, is always super watery. This recipe not only fixes that unwanted flaw, but we actually enjoy the taste and texture just as much as lasagna made with real noodles. What a bonus when you’re trying to avoid carbs!
Tofu Chili is a go-to on meatless Monday because it gives us all the flavour of a regular chili con carne minus the meat. Around here, we call it Chili Con Tofu. Tofu is brilliant at taking on whatever flavour you add!
We love hummus, but often tire of the same ‘ol recipe so today we’re trying out eggplant hummus and I have to say, this recipe is a keeper!
As you may know, I’m trying to eat healthier to lose some of the pounds I’ve packed on and this dip is chock full of goodness when paired up with vegetables!
Fruity breakfast parfait is an easy make-ahead breakfast. It’s something I just started doing because I’m making an effort to loose weight. However, even when I DO lose the weight, I’ll continue to make these. That’s because they’re so darn easy and good! What’s not to love about a make ahead breakfast that’s ready to pull out of the fridge in the morning?
Gluten free blueberry muffins that actually taste good seemed a dream until this recipe. We ate our way through many a puck, let me tell you. But things have changed since Hubs was diagnosed with Celiac disease and luckily time and patience always win out!
In anticipation of barbecue season, we were craving curried potato salad thinking it can’t be far off now.
