Hummus

Appetizers, Gluten-Free

I must admit, I’m a bit of a purist at heart.  There are some things that I simply don’t like to mess with.  My hummus is one of them.  I don’t want fancy things like pumpkin or chipotle in my hummus, thank-you-very-much. Hummus is a staple in our house, and is so healthy, so we figured we may as well … View The Post

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Desserts, Gluten-Free

Alright, I MAY have gone a bit overboard when I purchased all of those cans of pumpkin puree in September, but I have no regrets.  Everything happens for a reason, and those cans of pumpkin were no exception.  Today needed a bit of brightening, and since ice cream is my favourite treat, there was no question about what was on … View The Post

Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice

Gluten-Free, Sides

I love coconut.  And I’m head-over-heels for anything with cilantro.  Mixing the two in a dish?  Genius. This is a perfect side dish for that delicious curry you have been meaning to whip up, or would make the most amazing backdrop to grilled fish or chicken (perhaps with some fresh fruit salsa?).  Cooking the rice in coconut water gives it … View The Post

It’s incredible to me how quickly the seasons change at this time of year!  And since there is nothing I can do to change it (I love summer, I’m ALWAYS cold), out come the cozy sweaters and fall foods.  Ok, maybe fall isn’t so bad after all!

Gluten-Free Veggie Burgers

Gluten-Free, Main Dishes

I wasn’t sure how my husband, a complete carnivore, would react to me telling him I was making veggie burgers for his birthday barbecue.  I mean, I can’t blame him for being a little miffed.  After all, it’s HIS birthday, right?  So we settled on a compromise with veggie burgers being just one of the options and he was back … View The Post
