A Quick & Super-Yummy Pork Chop Recipe for Busy Days.


The summer days are packed! I am forever losing track of time and rushing to get dinner ready. Since I started my gut healing process, it is important to me that we don’t end up reaching for fast food. It is also essential that I eat high quality meat without antibiotics in them and a lot of veggies with every…

Easiest, No Fail, No Mess Chocolate Chip Cookies


It’s snowing here, and I have a cold, so naturally I am craving a treat. Since becoming gluten-free, indulgent baked goods are a little harder to make, especially if you are craving something from your childhood like a fluffy cake, chewy cookies or perfect pie. You want it to taste exactly the same! Thankfully, gluten-free flours have come a long…

Super Easy Tomato Sauce


The other night I was super rushed for time. I worked late and it seemed that supper time snuck up on me. We had activities to rush to after supper (#momlife, right?), so as soon as I got the kids from school it was time to start supper. If you work and do ANYTHING ELSE in life, you’ve had these…

Deliciously Ella’s Oat Bars


As you know, I have to stay gluten-free. Most of the time I just troll the internet for gluten-free recipes that may or may not work. I rarely buy cookbooks, but when I saw the cookbook “Deliciously Ella” in the discount section at Chapters, I knew I had to have it! I recognized her name from her blog, which I…

Alcohol


This week was so hectic that when Friday night rolled around I felt I “deserved” my one drink of the week. But, instead of using sense, I found the biggest glass I could and poured the whole bottle in to it. What fun, right? I sat up with my husband and watched a movie. Popcorn, some dark chocolate and wine.…

In Honour of Japan


I went on a ramble about Japan yesterday! And guess what Husband found in the back of the cupboard? A western version of a Japanese staple! It was given to me by one of my fave people on Earth and I meant to open it but then forgot. I have been snacking on it all day! So good.   It’s…

One Healthy Lunch


I am currently being forced to eat gluten so that my doctor can test me for Celiac disease. I eat it at breakfast and go for healthier, as-gluten-free-as-possible, delicious options through out the rest of the day. Today I wanted something that reminded me of a sandwich- but  without the bread. I didn’t come up with a new idea really,…

Community Shared Agriculture and a Salsa Recipe


I love our Community Shared Agriculture farm. We picked Eagle Creek Farms which is close to Calgary, AB, and is run by Farmer John and his family. They deliver the veggies and herbs weekly to a nearby farmer’s market. I don’t have a garden or a yard and a potted plant garden on my balcony can only yield so much. I…
