A Trip Across Canada – Yummy Treats

I had a special request from a reader to write a post about the foods that Canadians eat. In doing my research for this post, I discovered that we have some pretty interesting names for some of the specialty food that is unique to us. I compiled a list of fun foods that have their history in Canada. I tried to include links that had a bit of information about the history of the recipe. Enjoy having a look at and or trying some of these creatively named recipes. Moosehunter Cookies Beaver Tails Poutine Butter Tarts Nanaimo Bars Tortiere Figgy …

The Quest For Eggless Muffins

I am supposed to make muffins for breakfast this morning – according to my new menu plan – and I don’t have a suitable recipe. I have a great recipe for muffins which don’t have any eggs or dairy, but they have flax (which I am out of). So, I set out again in search of recipes for eggless muffins.

I decided to have a family meeting and see if we could come up with some creative ideas of things to eat. Let me just say here that we have some food issues in our house. We were gluten free, casein free for almost 2 years due to ADHD, Autism, and Aspergers  in our family. The diet was amazing and helped immensely. Last summer we reintroduced gluten and casein to see how …
