Dairy Free Butter Chicken

This has become a stand by dish around here.  It ain’t pretty, it’s easy, fast and the kids love it.  The best part is I can eat it and these days it feels like there isn’t much I can eat.  I know boohoo poor me but the list of forbidden foods has grown….again! It started […]

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I will come clean right from the start.  This recipe is not my own……in that it is a very slightly altered version of the absolutely amazing Apple Spice Coffee Cake by Danielle at Against all Grain. My kids will often say over a meal they particularly like “YUM! Mummy is the best cooker”.  I won’t […]

Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal

Even though my household is slowly moving toward a mostly Paleo diet we are struggling with breakfast for the kids.  I can happily eat dinner leftovers but the kids are fond of breakfast foods…..and don’t want eggs everyday.  I have been making huge batches of low-grain granola that is eaten with either almond milk or […]

Vapour Rub

Have you ever watched that show My Strange Addiction?  Yeah me neither…..but did you see the one episode where the woman would eat tubs of Vick’s Vapor Rub?  She said that she loved the smell so much that she had to eat it……..I guess it makes more sense than eating the stuffing out of throw […]

Roasted Bussel Sprouts

Everything is yummy cooked in bacon and onions….EVERYTHING!! One of my New Years resolutions for 2013 was to try foods I have always claimed to not like.  I have never been a really picky eater (does being gluten free, dairy free and mostly sugar free count as picky?  I think not) but there were a […]

Salad Nicoise

With babies, there is a period in between spoon feeding puree foods and efficient finger food eating that is particularly troublesome.  It is usually during this period that the little nuggets figure out that throwing food on the floor is fun….this I loathed.  I hated that all the effort I had made to feed them […]

Vegetable Stock and Curry Sweet Potato Soup

We have now come out the other end of ‘tag you’re it’ stomach flu.  I always think I have somehow managed to avoid what ever the kids have brought home but oh how the mighty do fall. Auto-immune diseases and all I actually fared pretty well.  Everyone else in the family spent at least 12 […]

Garlicy Hummus

About once a week it is Big Daddy’s night to make dinner.  Usually it falls on one of my busier days when I haven’t been able to consider dinner early enough in the day to make sure that the meat is thawed and prep done.  Sometimes it is left overs but most often he does […]

Real Food Shepherd’s Pie

This almost Paleo dish was a huge success around here.  Any dinner leftovers were eaten by a certain ‘Daddy Monster’ while he did the supper washing up.  I would like to say that we ate this with a huge salad like I would recommend for you and yours to do but after a very cold […]

Dairy Free Vegan Sour Cream

Dairy Free Vegan Sour Cream Going dairy free isn’t easyEating a Paleo diet or any diet (and obeying all the rules) ain’t easy. At this point I’m not trying to adhere to any particular ‘diet’ or plan other than gluten free and dairy free (with the exception of butter….I use so little of it and […]
