When pancakes come up, especially in July, there is only one thing that comes to mind.  Pancake breakfasts.  That all-important element of the Calgary Stampede.  But what if you’re out of town (raises hand), or want those memories to be evoked another time of year?  These ones did it.  They were fluffy and comforting and […]

Have you ever wondered about the mysteries of your jar of peanut butter? What about the more exciting nut butters – almond, cashew, walnut? The truth is that they’re all made in the same way, often on a mass scale with additions that I shy away from. Nuts are sweet on their own, so I […]

Father’s Day. Simple, lovely and all about family. I drove with my dad through town, not going anywhere in particular, just enjoying being in the car, together.

That’s a pretty bold statement. I realize that. However, they’ve got the perfect mix – almost cakey, just fudgy enough, and impossible to resist. At least for the members of my household.

French toast is the simplest thing.  Eggs, milk, maybe a spice or two, and bread.  But bread doesn’t live in my house.  At least not bread that I can enjoy.  Sure, every now and then, I’ll throw a loaf in the bread machine, but there is rarely any big commitment to it.  I’ll enjoy it […]

Every now and then, I am reminded of one very important thing: every single person who is gluten-free has had different experiences. We eat different things when we’re sick.

When my dad’s birthday rolls around, there is only one flavour of cake that is requested. Chocolate, devil’s food to be precise.
