Slowcooker Cardamom Rhubarb Compote

Slowcooker Cardamom Rhubarb Compote

 I’ve fallen in love with my slowcooker. I don’t know why this took me so long. I have had to be a bit of a kitchen gadgets minimalist, cooking out of small apartment kitchens for much of my life. But I finally welcomed a slowcooker (a hand-me-down crock pot from my Step-Mom), and I am […]




Hemp Ice Cream

Download/Print Recipe Here (makes 1 liter) Dairy-free, soy-free and soooo rich and creamy! An ice-cream machine is helpful here for best texture, but this can be made just in the freezer too. Hemp hearts are enjoying popularity because they have lots of protein, a great omega fats profile and they are high in fiber. They are […]

Spelt ‘mish-mash’ cookies- egg and dairy-free

Spelt ‘mish-mash’ cookies- egg and dairy-free

The transition from winter to spring requires a transition in baking as ingredients stored form the winter run out and new things become available! For example, I grew a LOT of squash last year and just used up the last of it in my 100th iteration of pumpkin breads and cookies. So in feeding my […]

Of those people, many said that the miss pumpkin pie too,as they have had to give it up for various dietary reasons. I have a soft spot in my heart […]
