Acqua Pazza Recipe
If you’re a fish lover and haven’t tried an Acqua Pazza recipe, you have to give it a try! It’s simply rustic but delicious.
Belgian Waffle Recipe – Crisp it Up!
We’ve got another Belgian waffle recipe perfect for a weekend morning! These Belgian waffles are not unlike the homemade belgian waffles we posted last year. However, this time we’re aiming for the crisp factor.
Crispy waffles stand up better to stacking, slathering with syrup or even adding a scoop of ice cream. Instead of eating these for breakfast, they’re also great as a dessert waffle.
Easy Mushroom Gravy
We promised you an easy mushroom gravy from scratch when we posted our easy poutine recipe. So the time has come for a delicious and quick mushroom sauce recipe. It really doesn’t take that much more time than using a package so why not make it fresh? And you can pronounce all the ingredients that go into it!
Tomato and Green Bean Salad
The combination of colours in this Tomato and Green Bean Salad remind me of the Italian flag! This mediterranean side dish is a great accompaniment to any meal but I especially enjoy it with these tender ribs.
Fall off the bone tender ribs are easy to achieve with baked ribs cooked low and slow. But if you’re not going to slather them in sauce and barbecue them afterwards, then you need a flavourful rub. And this dry rub hits the mark.
Green Onions and Eggs
Green onions and eggs the way my grandmother made it is a technique I’ve never found on the internet. Sure, you can throw green onions into an omelette or scrambled eggs. But this isn’t that by a long shot! Surprisingly, the eggs in this recipe are double cooked!
Quinoa Salad Recipe
This quinoa salad recipe is a delicious alternative for mediterranean couscous salad whether or not you have to eat gluten free. But you actually won’t miss the pasta, (I actually prefer it) especially when you consider how healthy quinoa is!
Chaffle Recipe – Breakfast Sandwich
I’m hesitant to even call this chaffle recipe a recipe because it’s just two ingredients. But you can always add in two more ingredients to make it more bread like so you can enjoy it as a chaffle breakfast sandwich as we do.
Keto Carrot Cake Muffins – Gluten Free
These keto carrot cake muffins are not only low carb, but gluten free and sugar free too – thanks to using almond flour and Swerve in this recipe! But don’t worry, they’re anything but taste free!
Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce
If you love the taste of Alfredo sauce but could do without the calories, then this keto friendly Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce is just the thing!
Pumpkin Spice Muffins
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!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie
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!
Falafel Waffle with Tomato Salad
Falafel waffle is fun to pronounce and even more fun to prepare! We make it gluten free by using GF flour* and baking powder, but feel free to use standard ingredients if you’re not celiac or following a gluten free diet.
Chimichurri Pizza with Chicken
This chimichurri pizza is all about the chimichurri pizza sauce!
Easy Chicken Mole – Gluten Free
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 in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot and is great for a Potluck.
Crispy Pan Fried Tofu
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.
Recipe for Homemade Ketchup – Sugar Free!
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!
