    Make this Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry

    A few of you have been asking for this recipe since the Bosch Cooking Class I hosted, so here it is-  my Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry Recipe. The Thai Green Curry paste is made from scratch in a matter of minutes and all you need is a blender or food processor to create the paste. I tend to avoid store boguth sauces and pastes as they are loaded with garlic, onions and preservatives, which are a big no-no if you suffer from IBS. By making the paste from scratch, I avoid this. After the paste is made, you move on to the making the actual curry, which takes less than…

    Make Spiced Poached Pear Oats

    Today’s recipe is how to make Spiced Poached Pear Oats, a gluten-free deliciously comforting breakfast, using pears, mixed spices, oats, butter and almond milk.   If you know me, you know I love to make pretty breakfasts. I believe that we eat with our eyes, so it is important to always make sure that the food that we are making for our family not only looks delicious but tastes delicious too. Oats have a rep for being bland, mushy and kind of gross, but that’s just because sometimes they are boiled too long, or they just aren’t treated with much love. My Tips for Making Oats Don’t cook your oats in…

    How to Make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops

    Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy cereal for the week? Today I show you how to make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops, using puffed rice, cocoa and a little bit of sweetness.  When my siblings and I were little, we would very rarely be allowed to eat sugary cereals. I even remember feeling guilt at nursery school because my teacher allowed me to make a Fruit Loop necklace and gasp – EAT IT TOO! When we were given sugary cereals like Strawberry Pops, Cocoa Pops and Fruit Loops, my parents would buy those small little boxes for us to ensure we didn’t overindulge. My sister and I would hoard…

    Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue made Gluten-Free

    Today we are baking a Gluten-Free version of Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue. Her easy to bake Lemon Meringue Pie mix contains the lemon curd and castor sugar to make a pie, but not the crust, so I decided to replace the Tennis Biscuits she suggests with Gluten-Free Digestive biscuits. A few weekends back, I spent hours trying to master a very complicated Lemon Meringue recipe. While I was happy with the results (it tasted delicious), it did not make it to the blog because I knew the process was too complicated for a blog that claims to post easy, simple recipes. Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue When I was looking through…
