Butter Tarts were my father’s favourite dessert so I have seen and even tasted various versions over the years. They are gooey, decadent and a real Canadian treat. I have seen thin and thick crusted versions, made with corn syrup or maple, ones with pecans and tarts just loaded with […]
Welcome to my blog! I want to share my epic journey to discovering healthful and flavourful food while living gluten-free and with severe food allergies. Navigating shopping and cooking has always been a challenge for me. Actually just getting into the grocery stores with fresh fish markets was dangerous. I once left a grocery store by ambulance because the fresh shrimp sent me into an allergic reaction. I want to share my success stories so others can avoid the pitfalls and challenges related to shopping and cooking healthy gluten-free and allergy free meals.
These crispy chicken strips do not need a bath in a seasoned marinade of some sort, whether it’s buttermilk, milk and eggs, or even pickle juice. No it’s so simple, I just cut strips of chicken from boneless, skinless breasts, dunk them in the Epicure Crispy Crunchy breading and place […]

I have been gluten-free for 30+ years and I won’t lie – I ate a lot of rice over the years. Enough to make me intolerant to it now. Lucky for me there are so many alternative flour blends these days, that I can still create almost any baked item or meal that I desire. That’s why I had no choice but to look for a rice alternative side dish. Your reason will be because chopped cauliflower is far superior in health benefits and flavour to rice! I willing to bet you will agree after you try it!
Did you know that Honey Garlic Chicken originated in Canada? I didn’t either until I went looking for the best gluten-free option for creating that yummy sauce. I say no more bland chicken when it’s simmered and seared in a skillet with this beautiful blend. It becomes all bubbly and syrupy…. ‘oh WOW! say my taste buds”.
Food can make you feel warm, comforted and even aroused, so why not call it a language of love? Well at least that’s how I feel. After I met my now husband and realized that he might just be the one, I wanted to make a meal that would seduce him, let him know that I loved him deeply, all while feeling empowered myself. I made him a dish that I now reserve for only very special occasions – Chicken Paprikas.
