Gluten-Free French Pastry Cheese Cups

If you like French pastry you will LOVE these gluten-free French pastry cheese cups. Think flaky, buttery pastry filled with lightly sweetened ricotta cheese custard. A dream combination if you ask me. I'll be honest when I set out in making these I wasn't sure if they will work for my site. Why? Because I will not make recipes that are too complicated, I feel that recipes should be easy enough for anyone to make. Having said that, the first two batches that I made had to be thrown out, they just didn't make the cut. So now it became a challenge for me. I just had to make this gluten-free puff pastry work. The results, well they are nothing short of amazing, especially right out of the oven. Trust me, and they are simple enough to make with exceptional results! So there, I finally made gluten-free French pastry that anyone can whip up. I will serve them for breakfast at Thanksgiving with a cup of good organic coffee, but if there are any leftovers, I will save them for a snack. Good luck on having leftovers :-)

Spicy Cincinnati Black Bean Chili

This is chili with a Cincinnati twist. Cincinnati Chili is made with ground meat, tomato sauce and an unusual blend of spices, but it also includes cocoa, coffee and chocolate. You may be surprised, but the cocoa and coffee boost the meaty flavour to another level without being overpowering, and the chocolate adds a little sweetness making this chili just perfect. I have also added my personal flair to this amazing chili which includes bacon for that smokey flavour and black beans with corn. Chili is such a versatile dish, don't you agree? You can serve it in a bowl just as is with your favourite toppings, or my favourite way to serve the chili is in a baked sweet potato, squash or over mashed potatoes. It's cozy, comforting food that goes with just about anything, even over pasta. And let's not forget, the chili is always better the next day or the day after. Nothing beats a slowly simmered chili in November.

Hot Pizza Dip – (Gluten-Free, Keto)

There is pizza, and there is a hot pizza dip! Hot pizza dip is a pizza without the crust. You know, the delicious melted cheese with your favourite toppings that you get on a regular pizza except without the bread. In this recipe, I used three types of cheeses, fresh tomatoes, basil, some garlic, and ham or pepperoni. I have also added jalapeño pepper, which is optional but I love spicy dips, so adding some heat really kicks it up a notch. Doesn't this sound so good? This is one of those fail-proof appetizers that everyone will love, I mean who doesn't love a pizza?. Don't know what to bring to a party? Bring this dip and just pop it in the oven, it's that simple. I have served this dip with gluten-free ciabatta bread (recipe coming up soon), but for those of you who watch the carbs, this dip goes well with fresh veggies like celery, broccoli or cauliflower. Gluten-Free corn chips are also a big hit with this hot pizza dip, just spoon the gooey dip on your chips and enjoy! You can also serve this hot appetizer during sports events yum!! With the holidays coming up, having an appetizer that is this simple to make is a must. You will not be disappointed, I promise :-) The best part is, you can prepare the dip a day in advance, just bake when you are ready. This will reduce your stress level when entertaining, believe me I know how crazy it can get during the holiday season

Sweet Potato Chickpea Sesame Patties (Vegan, Grain-Free)

I am dying to share this gluten-free recipe with you. For one, these sweet potato chickpea sesame patties are super easy to make, but more importantly, they are healthy, vegan and grain-free. The patties are made with sweet potatoes, chickpeas, sesame seeds, fresh parsley, and a unique blend of spices. I have added coconut flour which gives the patties just the right texture and some fresh lemon juice which ties everything nicely together. Seriously, these versatile patties make for a delicious mouth full. The best part, these patties make great vegan burgers or add them to your favourite salad. For me, I keep them on hand for any time protein packed snack. On a side note, chickpeas nutrition not only contains essential protein, about 15 grams per cup of cooked beans but also has many other important nutrients and are high in fiber. Oh, I almost forgot, when you make a burger load it up with avocado, onion, tomatoes, lettuce or thinly sliced cabbage and your favourite vegan mayo, YUM!

Vegan Tuscan Minestrone Soup (Gluten-Free)

So let's talk about Tuscan minestrone soup. I feel that when fall and winter come around, soups will make you feel warm and toasty inside. With the cold and wet weather we have been having, this soup clearly sounds pretty good now. Minestrone soup is loaded with colourful, healthy vegetables and has the most flavourful broth. Adding gluten-free pasta or quinoa turns this delicious soup into good old comfort food. This soup is one of those meals that will satisfy your craving for hearty food, plus it's super simple to make. I love serving this Italian soup with gluten-free artisan crusty rolls or gluten-free pull-apart soft rolls with rosemary, they are perfect for dipping.

Smashed Crispy Potatoes with Garlic Herb Lemon Butter & Parmesan Cheese

Potatoes are probably one of the most versatile vegetables out there. They can be boiled, steamed, stuffed, roasted or used in soups, stews and casseroles. The nutritional content of potatoes can vary depending on the variety. Potatoes are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. They contain zero fat and are naturally gluten-free. Did you know that potatoes have more protein, fibre and iron than broccoli? Anyhow, moving on to the recipe. If I were going to make a potato side dish to impress my family and guests, it would definitely be this one. Although this potato dish is simple to make, the flavour of the garlic herb lemon butter makes them addictively delicious. I used fresh parsley and fresh rosemary because both herbs go hand in hand when it comes to roasted potatoes. The splash of fresh lemon juice adds a little tartness balancing the saltiness and herbs to perfection. To add even more flavour, I topped them with Parmesan cheese which also makes them extra crispy. I feel that Parmesan cheese makes everything taste so much better, don't you agree? All of these flavours combined are just the best when it comes to potatoes. I have used small creamer potatoes because they hold their shape and taste better than any other potato when roasted. And as a bonus you don't have to peel them, making this potato recipe my favourite side dish. But don't stop there, these smashed crispy potatoes make for a wonderful snack especially during sports events. They are tastier than fries, you don't have to serve them hot, and they make perfect finger food. You don't even have to add a dip, they are that good! But the best part is, you can make them in advance. Just roast them, smash them and set aside until you are ready to serve them. When ready, finish cooking them with Parmesan cheese. Now that is an easy, amazing potato recipe. Enjoy!

With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, our lives become stressful and very busy. This is also the beginning of flu season. So, in my home, it is time to rev up the immune system with simple, healthy food such as this chicken soup. Traditionally chicken soup is a slow simmer soup which gives you the delicious broth that we all love. This chicken soup recipe is all about boosting our immune system to help us stay healthy and energized.

Once the chicken is tender, I add the julienned veggies with garlic, parsley, and finish off with fresh lemon juice and honey. The veggies are cooked briefly keeping them tender but still firm. This delicious soup is very easy and simple, but most importantly it will help boost your immune system

Creamy Thai Red Lentil Peanut Dahl (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

This past weekend when I was brainstorming I came up with this amazing vegan Dahl recipe. I call this recipe India meets Thailand. When creating gluten-free vegan recipes, it is important that they are nutritionally balanced and flavourful. In this recipe, I used red lentils, coconut milk, peanut butter, bell pepper, carrots, potatoes and Thai curry flavours. I finished the Dahl with fresh lime juice and plenty of cilantro. Are you thinking what I am thinking? :-) Yes, definitely not traditional, but sometimes classic recipes need to be kicked up a notch, and this is one of those recipes that needed a change. You have to trust me on this, it is super tasty and comforting, just what we need in October. To add even more veggies, I served this Dahl over roasted butternut squash and grilled zucchini, then I sprinkled pumpkin seeds over the top.  Can it get any better than this? Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie With Cinnamon Apple Swirl Yogurt Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Let's talk about healthy food. One of my favourite breakfasts is a yogurt bowl packed with fruit, seeds and nuts. Don't get me wrong, I do spoil myself on the weekends with some gluten-free biscuits or gluten-free chocolate chip zucchini muffins. I believe life is all about balance and during my work week it is all about healthy food that will keep me energized and focused. Let's be honest most of us don't have time in the morning cooking elaborate breakfast anyway, myself included. You have probably guessed it by now, this week is going to be all about healthy gluten-free meals. Yes, HEALTHY :-) Focusing on some vegan recipes packed with protein using a variety of spices and colourful fruit and veggies. I like using a wide selection of herbs and spices in my recipes because they are packed with antioxidants and add so much flavour and beautiful colours to simple meals, don't you agree?  Ok, back to this oh soooo good pumpkin pie with apple cinnamon swirl yogurt bowl. I call it the ultimate breakfast because it has everything from protein, to fruit, to fiber, all the things we need for a healthy body. Now for the recipe, I combined dairy-free unsweetened yogurt with pumpkin puree and a little maple syrup with pumpkin pie spices. To top it all off, I made lightly cooked apples with cinnamon, lemon juice, maple syrup and vanilla and swirled it throughout the pumpkin yogurt. The apples take only 5 minutes to make, they are tender but still have firmness, and will keep up to 7 days when refrigerated. I have also added some fresh berries, seeds and nuts, so feel free to add your favourite toppings. Got it? Yes, I call it awesomeness :-). So after all this, if I didn't get you at breakfast, hope you enjoy this delicious bowl of pumpkin pie yogurt as a snack or add some coconut cream or vegan ice cream and serve as a dessert. You can't go wrong either way.  Looking for a Halloween gift for your chef in the kitchen. Check out this monkey pizza wheel or, the spaghetti monster colander they are so cute!
