Gluten Free Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie

Childhood birthday memories. We always had a choice for a birthday meal the whole time I was growing up. For dessert I usually chose this lemon cheesecake for my Mum to make. It’s still one of my favourites to this day and the base was so easy to convert to gluten free along with the […]

Lemon Cheesecake

This carrot cake has been an ongoing recipe for a while now. Lately I’ve made it with my own flour blend from fresh milled flour, in my grain mill. And also with Anita’s gluten free all purpose flour … both were equally good. This cake is dense and full of flavour and each forkful gets […]

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

Banana bread from my childhood, but this time it is gluten free. This is a recipe I have totally missed for the last few years and I had been experimenting with numerous gluten free flours, such as sorghum and a starch blend … it was way too crumbly. I much prefer this almond flour mix, […]

Fig and BlackBerry Ice Cream

A surprise discovery of backyard berries, turned into a yummy dessert.  Saskatoon berries are something we have not been very familiar with, until now. They were easy picking and plentiful. The flavour leaves a subtle almond flavour, which was a pleasant surprise. Delicious eaten alone or topped with vanilla ice cream. Ingrediants: 1/2 cup GF […]

Saskatoon, Apple and Rhubarb Crisp,

Christmas Pudding in a jar is such a treat! Top that delicious pudding with a sweet run sauce and it is divine! Steamed puddings were popular in my house as a child and this recipe is a throw back to those days. Although this recipe itself, is a variation from my mother-in-law, Marjorie to make […]

Christmas Pudding In A Jar

Fig and Date Xmas cake with a drop of whiskey. This is a Christmas cake without citrus peel … because we don’t like it and it is full of dried fruit that you could change to your preferred taste. The night before, or even a day before making this cake. Prepare 2 cups of raisins […]
