Toffee Cereal Cookies

I was very intrigued by this recipe after having made grandma’s Lincoln Crisps. What would cornflakes do in a cookie alongside oats, raisins, pecans and TOFFEE?? The only trick was finding non-dairy toffee candies, but after a bit of research I learned that the Chimes brand makes a delicious coconut based version with sea salt….

Lincoln Crisps

I was very intrigued when I first saw this recipe – it calls for nuts, cornflakes and shredded coconut? And no flour? Well – they turned out a lot like a coconut macaroon and are likewise gluten free (provided you purchase gluten free corn flakes). Ingredients 3 egg whites, beaten stiffly 1 cup fine sugar…

Chocolate Drop Cookies

These cookies are very reminiscent of brownies – They would be a great after school snack with a glass of oat or other dairy alternative beverage. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups of sifted flour 1 cup coarse chopped nuts (I used walnuts) 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 2 oz unsweetened…

Carrot Pineapple Cake

This was a moist-yet-light cake, perfect for a pick-me-up afternoon snack. I served this with sour cream frosting. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups flour 1 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt 2/3 cup cooking oil 2 eggs 1 cup finely shredded carrots 1/2 cup…

Sour “Cream” Frosting

This is a delicious alternative to a cream “cheese” style frosting – it will likely be a thinner frosting which I really like for letting drip over the edges of my carrot pineapple cake. Ingredients 1/2 cup Earth balance at room temperature 1 tbsp vanilla 3/4 cup Sour Supreme 4-5 cups icing sugar, sifted pinch…

Cinnamon Bread

This was a huge hit in our house. This is another of Grandma Donna’s recipes where I was pleasantly surprised by the result of a few simple ingredients. The crust is a bit sweet and crunchy but the inside is soft and moist and the top is very reminiscent of a cinnamon bun. This would…

Peach Crisp (Gluten Free)

It’s peach season! I always love this time of year where delicious fresh peaches are abundant. We love them fresh, in jams, sauces, pies, cakes, and crisps! I adapted this recipe to be gluten free to accommodate the dietary restrictions of a friend we were having over for a visit. Topping Ingredients 1 cup almond…

Brioche Burger Buns

This is a big family favourite – it’s not summer yet until our family has had veggie burgers on homemade brioche buns. We use them for sandwiches too! Thanks to the Clever Carrot for the base of this recipe. Ingredients 2 cups warm water (75-85o) 3/4 warm soy milk 4 tsp active dry yeast 5…

Alfredo Sauce

This is one of my favourite creamy pasta sauces. We love it on fresh pasta. Ingredients 1 tbsp oil 1 large onion, chopped 2-3 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth 1 cup raw cashews 1/2 cup nutritional yeast 1 tsp capers 1 tbsp “no chicken” bouillon powder 1/2 cup vegetable broth Dash of…

Fresh Pasta

We don’t own a pasta press (yet) so I just roll this as thin as I can get it and cut the noodles by hand. Ingredients 2 1/2 cups flour Salt, to taste 4 eggs 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil Yield: 4 servings Make a pile of flour on a clean, dry counter space. Sprinkle…
