Rosemary Shortbread

Every summer we vacation up at the cottage in a little northern town called Thornbury. It is a sleepy little town but has some great pubs and spectacular coffee shops. Last summer I tried a Rosemary Shortbread cookie from our favourite coffee shop and was blown away as to how [...]

Pad Thai Salad

This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.

Lentil-Walnut Loaf

It has been very hot here in Southern Ontario over the last week or so and I have to say this is one of the driest springs I can remember. Normally I would be doing a happy dance but this is the year we laid sod and re-seeded at least [...]

Coconut Flour Biscuits

Learning to bake without using all purpose flour takes some getting used to. It really helps to practice on tried and true recipes to avoid disappointment and wasting money on expensive ingredients.

Gluten Free Coconut Flour Cupcakes

It seems my mission in life is trying to make low carb treats. It can be very difficult to swap out those high carb ingredients for low carb alternatives. The lower carb alternatives react differently so you have to make so many important tweeks to all ingredients. With agave nectar [...]

Low Carb Chocolate Walnut Cookies

I happen to live with the tallest cookie monster ever. Also know as my 6'3" 14 year old son and his cookie of choice is definitely chocolate chip. So when I told him I was making these cookies he gave me a bit of an evil eye and suggested that [...]

Sparkling Raspberry Vanilla Cream

I love refreshing desserts and this is definitely that. The combination of sugarless Jello and whipped cream blend makes for a sophisticated dessert. It reminds me a bit of trifle minus the high carb jelly roll and high fat custard cream. Don't get me wrong trifle is delicious but its [...]
