Brownies with a Hint of Matcha!

Inge Gillian Harris

Brownies, no doubt due to their high chocolate content, are generally loved by everyone. What is it about chocolate? Is it the ensuing relaxation from its high magnesium content, or just the mere addictive qualities attributed to chocolate? Probably, all of the above. The creative ways of using chocolate are endless.

There are also a hundred different ways of making brownies, gluten free or otherwise  – and we have a few options up our sleeves! Read More »

Buckwheat Pancakes with Banana and Date Butter – Gluten Free

Gluten free works author Petra Aitken

Wholesome Cook recently posted a recipe on her blog for fluffy ricotta pancakes (with the word fluffy in front you probably guessed they aren’t gluten free) with data and banana butter which caught my eye. I have made gluten free pancakes before but only from the Vitarium packet mix, however I had heard that buckwheat flour is very good for pancakes. I therefore decided to give these ones a go substituting the self raising flour for buckwheat flour and baking powder.

The buckwheat version of the pancakes come out a lot browner due to the colour of buckwheat flour however they were very yummy. I still believe that they are a bit dryer and less fluffy than glutenous pancakes, though with the banana and date butter and maple syrup (I decided to indulge a little) they are perfect.

Burger Deconstructed with Spicy Sweet Potato Hash Brown Recipe

I have shared my rice bowls many times in the past, and they are some of my favorite, quick meals.  However, the other day, I had a huge sweet potato that needed to be used, but I really wanted a burger.  I didn’t want a bun, so I decided to make a burger bowl or deconstructed burger.  I made my sweet potato into spicy sweet potato hash browns & then layered in the bowl with some mushrooms that I had sauteed in extra virgin olive oil and white wine.

Caramelized Corn and Avocado Salad with Chimichurri Dressing

chimichurri gluten free recipe

This chimichurri was so good, I made it two days in a row. While there is nothing fancy or different about this chimichurri, I do believe it is an under utilized recipe.

Classic chimichurri is good on just about anything you can think of. So far, we’ve had it on fish and perfectly cooked pork tenderloin this week. Tomorrow I plan on using it as a dressing for my Read More »

Carrot Top Pesto Recipe

gluten free carrot pesto

Believe it or not, my very favorite pesto is carrot top pesto. There’s some stiff competition from Kale Pesto and Garlic Scape Pesto and of course, regular basil pesto. Perhaps it’s such a treat because it’s quite a rarity.

dearYes, deer, it’s your fault! I’ve seen you do it, no lying and blaming it on the rabbit. Fess up!

We’ve had a crazy overpopulation of deer this year and have rabbits, chipmunks and squirrels to boot. Did you know squirrels eat Read More »
