Cauliflower Veggie Pizza (gluten free or not-your choice!)

I’ve been a pretty quiet on the blog the last few weeks.  I've been trying to get my groove and keeps up on posts but then summer stepped in!  Between the busyness and the viruses it's certainly kept me off-line for the most part. You know how "they" always say that "its" going around; well I certainly hope that none of you or yours were privy to the "it" that went around this summer.  I have to say that was by far the most ill I've been in a very very long time.  A freaky viral thing that th...

Gluten Free whole grain bread.

One of the things I miss the most since having gone gluten-free is a really good whole wheat bread.  Not just whole wheat bread but one that can be eaten fresh or toasted.  Well I have to say I've go t it!! Oh my gosh this is by far the best Ive made thus far...whole what that is.  It's got a really great texture so it doesn't fall apart as soon as you pick it up or in the toaster which as you know is not fun.  You're hungry and waiting for that piece of toast, up it pops and you go to grab ...

Gluten Free Crunchy Oat Bars (do not need to be gluten free if you prefer)

I've been know a time or two to cook when stressed (just a time or two ;) )  Truth be told it is an amazing stress reliever and something that I love to do.  So poking around in the kitchen certainly isn't a hardship for me. This is my first go at these and they turned out amazingly tasty1  If I was to change one thing that would be to not roll them out quite as thin as I did...close but not quite.  It just resulted in them cooking a little quicker than anticipated and I really prefer things ...

Chocolate Energy Bites

I forget where I recently saw this recipe but I decided to give it a go.  The concept of it as a little "pick me up" is similar to s recipe I previously posted but most of the ingredients are actually different.

Here's what the original recipe called for and I'll underline what I chose to use. Ingredient...

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! It's Christmas eve day and I've got a few things on the go in prep for the big day....So I started off with the best of intentions in doing something healthy and different for a snack....Kale chips.  I stumbled on them on line and gave them a go today and what a mistake they were.  Firstly when it came time to flip them they looked like something you'd smoke, not eat.  Tobacco folks tobacco!  Reminded me of the days on the farm and the dried up tobacco leaves and ...
