The Three Best Gluten-Free Alternatives!


Okay, so I have 3 key products I rely on since becoming gluten-free and thought I would share. Robin Hood Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour Blend  Although you can make your own blend of gluten-free flour using several ingredients, sometimes it is nice to have a pre-made blend on hand. However, if you have the ingredients, I strongly recommend Charlotte J’s…

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…

Green Tea Vs Coffee


  I have been trying something new. I am hopelessly addicted to coffee but I have been trying to cut down, as I have a very sensitive system. Thank goodness for green tea!

Popcorn, some dark chocolate and wine.…

One Healthy Lunch

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…

The Comfort of Caffeine.


There is something extremely comforting about the smell of coffee. Some studies classify it as a drug and no wonder. It can be intoxicating to me. Freshly brewed has a  slightly sticky molasses smell that is delicious.  If I walk in to a house that is permeated by that smell I feel like I’m home.  Maybe that is strange for…
