Being gluten free can sometimes be achallenge, especially when you're looking for bread that has the right taste, texture and holds up to being used in various ways. Although I've found that looking for local bakeries that make vegan and gluten free bread is the best route to go, sometimes it's just easier to go without and create dishes we love without the bun. Not to mention easier on the waller since it's still a specialty product and my usual loaf is about 7 dollars.

I've cracked it! First with my Hot Cauliflower Wings, now with these onions rings. A batter that requires zero oils or fats to crisp up beautifly in a hot oven. I have many many plans for this. Most definitely will be serving variations of these to people would join our secret dinner parties (more info coming soon, but you can sign up for the mailing list here.)
Spring is definitely in the air now, at least here in Vancouver it is! All the flowers are blooming and the air and sun are warm during the day and satisfyingly chilly at night. This means that casseroles and hearty dishes like this Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie are still very very welcome in the cool evenings. This dish is a delightful twist on the classic I grew up eating. Although it had very different ingredients, this still reminds me of evening with my family as a kid.
How time flies! I haven't posted in awhile, mostly due to the increased efforts I've been putting towards the launch of a personal chef service here in Vancouver. I'm getting SO close to being totally ready and I'm excited (and scared) beyond anything to be doing this. I have a few cooking classes ready to be advertized and will be making annoucements soon as to a schedule and all that. Personal Chef services are up and running, you can check out the services page for more information.

When it comes to snacks, I'm all about easy. Most of the time, I try to choose fruit or veggoes to snack on but once in a awhile a nice little crunchy roasted chickpea is jusssssst right. These little balls of bliss are so easy to make, it's barely a recipe. I live tossing them in different spices or "sauces" to make different flavors. This one, however is my go-to since I always have some kind of chili powder kicking around.
