Simple Seed Crackers

Crackers and cheese are one of my favourite snacks when I’m peckish. In my search for a suitable cracker for my diet, I could not find one with enough seeds for my liking. Most store-bought dry biscuits are made with flour with some seeds mixed through, but I wanted a recipe with mostly seeds. After […]

Zucchini Pie

Quiche and Egg and Bacon pie are meals I really miss. These are just two of many old recipes that are now off my list because of egg intolerance.  Once again, I went on an internet search and came up with my own alternative. It’s nice to sit down to a ‘one pot wonder’ and […]

Spicy Muffins

Toasted hot crossed buns were one of my favourite Easter Saturday treats. The smell of the toasted spiced buns wafting through the house would fill my senses.

Jenny's Spicy Pumpkin Soup

Cooking is my way of being creative. There is something satisfying about sharing a home cooked healthy meal with friends and family. Sharing food expresses the love and warmth I feel for others. Living alone can be hard at times. One way for me to overcome this has been to cook a lot of food […]

Creamy Spiced Chicken Casserole

When I first discovered my sensitivity to over 60 foods, I sulked for a day. I had hit another hurdle in my journey to health. How could I enjoy food with so many limitations? Meals made with the staples in my diet such as dairy, eggs, tomatoes, gluten, and olive oil were no go zones. […]
