    I love steak. And chicken. And bacon. Did I mention that I love bacon? You're probably wondering why someone who has very clear carnivorous obsessions tendencies would be posting about chickpeas. You couldn't get anything further removed from a steak than this humble legume. But these easy...

    My baby brother just turned a quarter century recently. Gee. Saying that out loud makes me feel old. My brother grew up watching the movie My Neighbour Totoro . It's pretty safe to say that he was obsessed with it, as only a small child can be. To this day, this fluffy, gentle, forest spirit...

    With the onset of the cooler weather, my mindset and appetite have made a definite shift from the usual summer fare to cravings for comfort food. While each person's definition of comfort food may be different, it's pretty hard to ignore the satisfaction factor of potatoes and cheese. That's why...

    Bananas and I haven't always had the best relationship, but this gluten-free banana oatmeal muffin recipe will appeal to the toughest critics. Of all the fruit out there that I've tried, it's pretty safe to say that bananas are not my favourite. They're not even in my top 5. I think it's a...

    E has developed a definite sweet tooth as of late and this gluten-free soft chocolate chip cookie recipe is a great guilt-free way to satisfy that sweet tooth. I actually believe that I could get him to eat pretty much anything if I stuck a chocolate chip on it. But that would probably fall...

    With all the hustle and bustle of holiday meal preparations, it's nice to make a dessert that doesn't require an oven. For Christmas dinner, I made a spice ice box cake to bring to my sister-in-law's. With two babes in the house, this low maintenance dessert was just the ticket. But don't...

    This is the first post in a while, I know. A few things have happened since the last time I wrote. Welcoming a new baby into the family has definitely kept us very busy! I'm definitely feeling like we are getting into a rhythm as a family. So much so that I was able to do a make ahead cranberry...

    For my brother's birthday this year, I gifted him a birthday cake. I feel that, more and more, handmade gifts are more meaningful and heartfelt than anything that can be purchased. It's also a great idea for people giftees who don't need more "stuff." My brother requested something not too...

    I just had an awesome visit with my friends Sarah, Rosa, and Felicia today. Needless to say, I left Baby E at home with daddy. That's the only way I get a chance to actually engage in any degree of conversation these days. Sarah was kind enough to host, so I offered to bring some goodies to...

    So I've been seeing a lot of buzz about "no churn" ice cream around Pinterest as of late. No churn, you say?? Sign me up! I found a recipe on Delicious Everyday for a caramelized white chocolate version of the no churn treat and adapted it. I was experimenting a bit because the original recipe...

    In an effort to curb my mama guilt and anxiety about Baby E's low veggie intake as of late, I made some of these baby cookies. Not too sweet, hearty, and soft, these small biscuits are adult friendly as well. Feel free to substitute natural peanut butter for the almond butter and half and half...

    There's nothing I love more than strawberries, and while the local season is basically over, you can still get them organically at the produce store. My mom grabbed a couple cartons of said organic strawberries for me Baby E a few days ago. They were already quite ripe and there was no way we...

    So, remember when I made ribs here and then the time before that here? Well, it looks like we've become a bit of a rib house in the last little while. I ran across this recipe for sticky Asian ribs in my newsfeed a while back from Apple of My Eye and I couldn't get them out of my head. They...

    I thought about trying to cram this into the previous post, but it didn't seem to fit together (despite being about the same event). For the kidlets, I made some take-home fun kits rather than the traditional loot bags of candy,etc. First up, a wood and ribbon hand kite. I wanted to use wooden...

    There are many milestones in life and wedding anniversaries are among the most joyous. It seems more common nowadays to hear about people splitting up, rather than staying together. That's why, when a wedding anniversary comes along (whether it's yours, or someone you know) it's always nice to...

    I recently got a manual pasta machine. You may recall that I received an all-in-one machine from my Aunty Rose (which works great), but I wanted to also have the option of literally cranking out my own fresh pasta. The Gluten Free Girl has a fantastic recipe for fresh pasta that I had been...

    Have you ever watched Mind of a Chef? It's an amazing show featuring really passionate chefs talking about the philosophy behind their cooking and the ways in which they approach food in general.
