Thanksgiving Brussel Sprouts

I must admit I don't like Brussel sprouts that much. Every year I create a new brussel sprout recipe hoping that one day I will start to like the little green cabbages. Well, this is the first year I finally came up with a recipe that I love! Yes, it took me only how many years? Too many! In this recipe, I added apples, walnuts, cranberries, nutmeg, fresh lemon juice and sweetened them with maple syrup. Wow, they are amazing! When I was testing the recipe, I could not stop eating the little cabbages. In this recipe, the Brussel sprouts are lightly caramelized, and by adding cranberries and apples, I added slight tart flavour. Finishing with walnuts, adding texture and earthy flavour. If you are like me and aren't crazy about Brussel sprouts, you should try this recipe, who knows you may change your mind as I did. If nothing else, eat just the apples, walnuts and cranberries and leave the tiny cabbages for others to enjoy!

Parsley Black Beans & Tomatoes Pasta (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Today it's all about fast and easy gluten-free pasta recipe. I believe that Monday is a good pasta night. This ridiculously easy recipe is all about fresh parsley, black beans, fresh tomatoes and lots of garlic with olive oil all tossed with gluten-free pasta. Nothing is complicated in this recipe but put everything together, and you have a pretty amazing Italian meal. This is a vegan pasta recipe, but feel free to add some shredded leftover chicken in the mix or top with loads of grated Parmesan cheese. This is probably the easiest pasta recipe that I have made that is packed with so much goodness and flavour. Feeling adventurous, add gluten-free garlic cheese monkey bread for that ultimate Italian experience On a healthy note, I would like to add that not only does parsley enhance flavour in our food and is used for presentation, but it is also high in vitamin C, A, K and iron, all of which promote good health.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal & Almond Butter Cookies for Kids

When I was creating this gluten-free cookie recipe, I wanted to keep it as healthy as possible, by keeping the sugar low and protein high, and still keep the cookie tasting delicious. I combined unsweetened roasted almond butter with butter and used coconut sugar to reduce blood sugar spikes. This oatmeal & almond butter cookie contains less than 3 grams of sugar and approximately 2.5 grams of protein per cookie. I have not added raisins, but if you wish, add 1/2 cup sulphite-free raisins

Gluten-Free Beef & Potato Calzones From Scratch

Here is a delicious recipe that I have been working on this weekend. I always wanted to create gluten-free calzones from scratch that were simple enough for anyone to make. Calzone is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza with various fillings. Because I love mint and have so much of it in my garden, I wanted to create a recipe where I include fresh mint. So I combined a little Moroccan flavour with Italian calzones and came up with this mouthwatering beef and potato recipe. The beautiful part is that you can use any filling like feta and spinach to anything that you would top a pizza with. Calzones are best eaten when fresh, but if you have leftovers, pop them in an oven or toaster to re-heat. For step by step instructions click here ->

Vegetable Hibachi Noodles (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

We are ending this week with Japanese style take-out vegetable hibachi noodles. Friday just seems like a take-out night. This simple Japanese inspired noodle dish is saucy, salty and a little sweet with thinly sliced veggies throughout. I used traditional soba noodles because they are nutritionally packed and are also high in protein. Did I mention this 20-minute noodle meal is super healthy! Sometimes all we need is just a bowl full of tasty noodles, especially after a busy first week of school

Best Pull-Apart Soft Rolls With Rosemary (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

At my house when it comes to holidays such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, rolls are one thing that is a must-have on the dinner table. I will admit it took me a few attempts until I got the recipe just right. Just for a laugh the first batch that I made, the rolls were like hockey pucks…ouch! I also wanted to make the rolls as an easy recipe. No complicated flours, long kneading or waiting for hours for them to rise. Well, here they are soft, light, easy to pull apart and taste just like real wheat rolls. My kitchen this week was like a bakery, I made many batches of rolls but wasn't satisfied until the one I made today. YEY!! I promise these gluten-free pull-apart soft rolls are the best! I have added some fresh rosemary, to add a little flavour and festiveness but it is optional. Another herb I would love to add is thyme, my favourite herb. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think? It took me an entire week to create these stunning rolls. They are best when eaten the same day, but if you happen to have a roll or two left over for the next day, slice them and toast them. They taste absolutely amazing!
