Sickgrrrrrl Unchicken Noodle Soup <3

I’ve been battling a cold for the past couple weeks, and this week I’ve lost my fight and given in to slurping soup, tea, and watching too much Netflix. I’m sure I’ve posted a recipe for chickpea noodle soup before, but I’ve adjusted my technique a little bit after discovering the magic of panfrying my…

Broccoli Salad

WHY IS IT 30 DEGREES OUTSIDE?! I am seriously melting this week, and between the heat and all of the time I’ve spent baking, I am so ready to never turn on my oven again (until next week’s market of course). So at this point, any excuse to eat just salad for a meal is…

Chai Spice Soy Milk Soft Serve!

So, the other day a good friend of mine told me that I could hack an ice cube tray to make ice cream and I’m not sure my life will ever be the same again. Last night I experienced the deliciousness that is ice cube tray+food processor ice cream and my life will never be…

Creamy Coconut-sicles (Fudge and Berry Editions)

July has only begun, and my city already experienced its hottest day of the year this week, ew. So, when I woke up today a sweaty monster (I knew you’d love that visual), and found my dog trying to shield himself from the heat underneath my bed, I decided that from THIS DAY FORTH, my…

Gluten Free White Chocolate Pancakes

My city (Calgary) is currently in a state of emergency due to flooding, and I have the Friday off work due to closures. I am safe and sound cuddling my dog, and I trust my fellow Calgarians are safe as well. By updating my blog to talk about awesome pancakes, I hope my local readers…

Cashew Uncheesecake <3

Over the weekend, I had the chance to visit my father to celebrate his birthday. In typical Sarah Louise fashion, I am usually the one who provides obligatory baked goods for such celebrations because everyone else is terrified to bake a cake without eggs, god forbid. As I was brainstorming what to bring along with…

Burrito Bowls and Chili Lime Dressing!

Burrito bowls are one of my favourite comfort foods for two reasons: 1. IT LOOKS LIKE SO MUCH MORE FOOD THAN A NORMAL BURRITO BECAUSE IT ISN’T ALL WRAPPED UP IN A TORTILLA. 2. IT IS MOSTLY ALL FRESH VEGETABLES. So, I was having a bit of a grouchy week, and decided that a burrito…

Gluten Free Vegan Cupcakes

Just wanted to share some pretty photos of some gluten free, vegan cupcakes I made earlier this week! Discovered a new favourite secret ingredient to gluten free cupcakes that makes them rise beautifully…sparkling water. I am sharing this because I am really excited, but any jerks who asked me WHY I WOULD DO THAT, please…

Berry Middle-of-Nowhere Crumble

Today, while visiting my father, we happened upon a great organic grocery store and bantered for awhile on the benefit of eating organic oats vs. sugary cereals. Then, I started thinking about the trip I took to Newfoundland in the summertime and this recipe I wrote on my old blog. I am going to preface…

More Adventures in Allergen Free Baking

As you may have noticed, my interest in gluten free baking and cooking has skyrocketed in the past month or so. This is partially due to the amount of requests I’ve had lately for gluten free fare, but more likely, it is just because I enjoy the challenge. Recently, I was asked to bake a…

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-free Edition. Nut-free too.)

I have never met a gluten-free cookie I liked. Don’t take this personally if you have ever tried to feed me a GFTHING, but I have just never tried anything that fit both of these criteria that I’ve enjoyed. Perhaps it was tasty, but it fell apart too easily for lack of binding. Or didn’t…
