Sunflower & Poppyseed Rustic Flax-Focaccia


This recipe has fast become my new favorite. In fact, I’ve already made two batches in two days! I can’t wait to share this recipe with you…

Focaccia bread is a flat, oven-baked Italian bread which may be topped with herbs, nuts, seeds or topping of choice. Focaccia doughs are similar in texture to pizza dough, and usually consist of high-gluten flour, oil, yeast, water and salt. This recipe however, is free from flour, gluten, grains, dairy, sugar, and nuts! You are in for a treat. Continue reading

Homemade Doggy Treats “Italian Crunchy Munchies”


I know I haven’t done a post in a few days…I had a little incident with my iphone, which is what I use to take all my foodie pics. I accidentally ‘synced’ it to my iTunes (darn them) which erased all of my photos and data I had saved on it, all of which I can unfortunately not get back – I was devastated! Considering I had taken so many photos of recipes over the last month that I’ve yet to post, and now I have no photos with them, which means a major re-do! Oh well, I’m over it. I’d like to delete iTunes now and forever, but I’m scared that if I do so, it will take my whole computer with it. So anyways, I guess all I can do is to warn you – if iTunes asks you if you want to sync your iPhone – don’t do it, unless you’re prepared to loose it all!

Moving on! I do have a recipe for you. Actually, it’s more of a recipe for your dog than for you…

It drove him a little crazy making him wait till the photos were over, so he was definitely well deserving of a treat by the end of it!)

Sweet & Smokey Chicken Basil Sausages


Have you ever tried making your own sausages? It’s actually pretty simple, and considering how much crap (literally) is in most store bought sausages, not to mention that most brands contain upwards of 50% fat, it’s nice to have a healthy alternative!  I’ve been dreaming about Jules Clancy’s “Magic Sausage Supper” ever since I saw it over on The Stone Soup’s food blog — if you have never visited this blog before, I highly recommend it – so many goodies! When I first saw this recipe, Cam and I were in the middle of a detox…and no, meat was not on the “allowed foods” list, which is probably why I was drooling over recipes like this! I finally got around to trying her recipe the other day (OMG – so good!). The only real thing I did different, was I decided to make my own sausages instead of using store bought ones, and since they turned out so yummy, I thought I should probably share my recipe with you! These are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy free, egg free, paleo approved and oh, so tasty! Continue reading

Coconut Macadamia “Rocky Road” Ice Cream


…can I just add that this ice-cream is sugar-free, dairy-free, and paleo-approved!! This ice-cream is super rich and chocolatey, and just as decadent tasting as any other dairy-filled and sugar-laden ice-cream I’ve had. Only better then that.

You wouldn’t even be able to tell that this is free from dairy and sugar. And omg, when you take a bite — the crunch of the raw macadamia nuts folded between the velvety-smooth ice cream is H-E-A-V-E-N-L-Y!! I could keep going, but I’m gonna stop there – you’ll just have to try this for yourself.

If you’re wondering if you need an ice-cream maker for this recipe…? You don’t.

Homemade Creamy Caramel Almond Milk


It’s about time I post this recipe… I had been thinking about making my own almond milk for some time, and finally last week I decided to give it a try. The result? Spectacular. Amazing. Creamy. A Creamy-Vanilla-Caramel dream (did I mention there’s no caramel added?). This recipe makes about one and a half litres or 7 cups which I was sure would last me a week or so…boy was I wrong. This milk is so much creamier than any other almond milk I’ve bought… it’s a treat just on it’s own!  This week I’ve had it on top of my “The Farmer’s Grain-Free Muesli“, I’ve used it in my RAW “Chocolate Sun Warrior Fudge Brownies“, and I’ve mixed it in my daily protein shakes (which make them taste more like a dessert)… yes, it’s time to make another batch!
