Fast Easy Homemade Apple Sauce

I despise even the slightest bit of mushiness in an apple.  So I line then up for apple sauce.  This recipe is ridiculously simple and only takes about 30 minutes.  I made it while doing my laundry.  Doesn’t everyone multi-task like that?  The most onerous part of this is chopping up the apples. Pretty much…

Addictive Protein Mocha Granola

This granola is everything you want to taste and nothing you need to feel guilty about.  Enough said.  Now, go make it! I modified Pam’s Best Granola Ever to reduce some of the fat and sugar and gave some to my brother to try.  He was hooked.  Being as health conscious as he is, he…

Easy Rich Chocolate Cake (which happens to be Gluten-free)

This has to be the easiest, simplest, best-tasting chocolate cake I have ever made.  It also happens to be gluten-free. I can’t tell you how many chocolate cake or molten chocolate cake or brownie recipes I’ve tried.  Something was always missing. This cake is a like a fudgey molten chocolate cloud.  I know.  Contradictory.  But…

Simple Five Ingredient (Flour-free) Peanut Butter Cookies

These peanut butter cookies take about 5 minutes to mix, don’t require a ton of ingredients and happen to be flour-free which means they are gluten-free.  That doesn’t mean there isn’t sugar in there.  Yup.  There sure is.  But there is nothing wrong with peanut butter and sugar having a hug. This recipe is from…

How’s your back working for you?

  Does your back hurt?  Yeah, I know.  So does mine.  In fact, 80 per cent of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives.  And if you’ve known it, you never want to experience it again. Usually I post recipes in this space.  I like to cook. I like to bake….

  Gluten free, dense, satisfying, not too sweet, gluten free pumpkin bread made with protein-packed coconut flour.  Yeah.  It’s good.

So Good Gluten Free Coconut Bread!

Bread and coconut.  Bread and coconut.   Bread and coconut.  Yeah.  It’s all good. In the opening pages of every edition of Bon Appetit magazine, there is a section where readers can write in and request a recipe from a great restaurant or bakery etc.  This is a recipe I saw in Bon Appetit for…

Banana Peanut Butter “Nice” Cream – Kinda Ice Cream

Summer is for ice cream.  But when you have a lactose-intolerance and you’re finding that ice cream is becoming a food group all its own in your diet, you sometimes look for other options.  So I turned to banana “nice” cream, which is just another way of saying, freeze some bananas, blitz them in a…

Fudgey Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookies

  These are soft yet fudge-y and cake-like chocolate cookies.  Perfect on their own.  Perfect with cranberries or cherries and another hit of chocolate with some chocolate chips.  Great little top and bottom to a homemade chocolate ice cream sandwich. I found the recipe while cruising around on the King Arthur Flour website.  I often…

Rhubarb/Strawberry and Rhubarb/Cherry Jam

Rhubarb and strawberry are delicious together.  But I’d say rhubarb and cherry are even better.  There are times on rainy days that you look in your freezer and say to yourself that you need to make room.  And so you decide to take your frozen fruit and make jam (And then you forget to post…
