pizza four ways

Pizza night! We all made our own super-yummy and cheesy personal pies. Some had more vegetables than others.


O’Doughs gluten-free flax pizza kit is one of our go-to store-bought crusts. Terrific taste and texture!


Now if only we could get our hands on their new Bagel Thins…we can’t seem to find them anywhere and they sold out in a New York minute at the Gluten Free Garage!

happy Halloweenie!

All that glitters is gluten free.


Lily’s 1st Halloween, October 2006



Now she can spell her own name. And eat gluten-free chicken sausages that she says are “stupendous!”

apple brown bessie

My great great aunt, the late Bessie Segal, in her East Village apartment, late 1990s. I named this dessert after her.


Combine “wet” ingredients in a bowl.


6 cups apples, peeled and chopped into cubes (about 6 apples – Spartan and Spy are good baking apples, Granny Smith is tart; it’s nice to combine some varieties)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice


Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl.


1/2 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour
1/2 cup pure uncontaminated oats
1/3 cup brown sugar


Add 1/3 cup butter or coconut oil to dry ingredients and combine until mixture gets moist and crumbly. (Use your hands, not a mixer.)


Put apple-cinnamon mixture in an oven-proof dish.


Sprinkle crumble mixture on top of apples.


It’s good to have a helper.


lotsa GF at the Veg Food Fest

This past Sunday we went to the 28th Vegetarian Food Festival at Harbourfront Centre. Hosted by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, it’s billed as the largest vegetarian festival in the world! We went in search of some gluten-free goodness. Lily brought along her business card.


We started things off with a strawberry, banana and pineapple smoothie.


Next stop: lunch at Live Organic Food Bar‘s booth.
