Carrot Cake Pancakes – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Carrot Cake Pancakes

New England is in full show-off mode at the moment, putting on a blazing display of autumnal colours.  It’s truly astonishing, and as my husband noted yesterday, it seems like maybe the most vibrant fall we’ve had in our 10 years of living here.  It’s gorgeous and joyful, but I always find something very melancholy […]

Grain-Free Cream of Wheat and My Daily Diet

Low Carb Hot Cereal Recipe

Fine, fine, fine.  You’ve worn me down and I am going to do it at long last.  I have thought about writing this post many times, but something has always held me back.  But finally, here I am, writing a post about what I eat day-to-day.  I am sure some of  you are thinking “Whoop-de-doo, […]

Blueberry Breakfast Bars – Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Kids

Blueberry Breakfast Bars @dreamaboutfood

As you know, I am working hard at getting my family to be mostly sugar and gluten-free.  I don’t feel that they need to be as low carb as I am, but I am committed to eliminating the majority of wheat-based products we keep in this house.  I have a strong supporter in my husband, […]

Walnut Flax Pancakes – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Walnut Flax Pancakes

I’ve always thought of myself as a very well-adjusted person, but I am beginning to think that may not be so true.  I think I may actually have something of a compulsive disorder.  See, here’s my problem:  I can see a recipe that looks amazing and that I am wildly eager to make.  And I […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Granola – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Chocolate Hazelnut Granola @dreamaboutfood

When I made up the name for this blog, I had no idea how fortuitous my pick would turn out to be.  I actually had another name altogether in my head, but as I was fairly certain that no one beyond my close family and friends would ever read it, it hardly mattered much what […]

Blueberry Coconut Waffles – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Coconut Flour Waffles

For my second column on Easy Eats Magazine, I decided to tackle breakfast.  And I wanted it to be something the whole family would enjoy, which meant going gluten-free AND low carb.  We all love waffles, and they always feel like a treat.  Plus the leftovers are easy to freeze for future breakfasts.  My kids […]

Peanut Butter Flax Power Granola – Bob’s Red Mill Giveaway

Low Carb Granola Recipe

Many moons ago, after her divorce, my mother started doing a series of Outward Bound courses.  She did the basic three-week canoe trip in northern Ontario.  She did mountaineering in the Rockies.  She did a sailing course in the Caribbean.  She even did a dog-sledding course in Yukon or the Northwest Territories or some other […]

Light and Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)


I am not sure I have any business calling anything made with coconut flour “light and fluffy”.  Really, have you ever worked with the stuff?  If you are used to wheat flour, you will find coconut flour to be very odd stuff indeed.  You’ve never seen the like, I can assure you.  Oh sure, it […]

Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes (Guest Post with The Realistic Nutritionist)


Today is another guest post, this time from Claire of The Realistic Nutritionist.  I love Claire’s blog and have been following for a long time.  We don’t necessarily do “healthy” the same way, as Claire tends towards low fat recipes, whilst I go low carb.  But our approach to “healthy” is similar…food is something to […]

Almond Flour Bread and French Toast – Low Carb


If I am not mistaken, one of the first dishes I ever learned to cook for myself was French Toast. It’s always been one of my favourite breakfast items, and for a kid just learning the ways of the kitchen, it’s a relatively straightforward dish. Crack some eggs, whisk with cream, dip the bread and […]
