Tuna noodle casserole is one of the best comfort foods out there. Not sure about you, but I remember having a casserole like this many times as a kid. Something like this, in addition to tuna melts, were in the rotation on a regular basis. I also remember making tuna melts all the time on my own, and toasting them in a toaster oven.  I’m not a huge tuna fan, but prepared like this or in a melt, I’d have it almost any day of the week. I wanted to make this version gluten-free and dairy-free as well but still have the creamy texture as traditional tuna noodle casserole.

Meatballs are comfort food at its best. Have you ever gone to IKEA and had their swedish meatballs? Plus, with the creamy sauce?! Oh my gosh. Hard to beat. But watch out IKEA, these Turkey Swedish Meatballs are just as good, and bonus – they are gluten-free and dairy-free.

A really delicious and easy pasta dish. Which also happens to be vegan and gluten free!  Really happy with how delicious this came out and it came together in under 30 minutes as well. I love that in stores its so much easier to find dairy free and vegan options. Plus, today, they don’t taste that much different from the real thing, so the quality is great too.

African peanut stew is one of those recipes that I’ve been seeing on vegetarian blogs for years but have never made it. I’ve seen a lot of various versions and add-ins, so wanted to come up with my own. Its too bad it took me this long to make it, because its so delicious and the whole family ate it up! Even my pickiest eater! I decided to add it tofu for extra protein, even though you’re getting a bit with the peanut butter. But I’m glad I did as it upped the protein to almost 12 g per serving.

Its still really chilly here in Vancouver, so soups and stews are in full effect. The inspiration for this recipe was the fresh produce I had on hand. I had some beautiful fresh chard on hand, and perfect yellow potatoes. For a hearty and flavorful meal, I like making soups and stews with turkey sausage. There is so much flavor within the sausage, you don’t need to add any seasoning. It flavors the whole dish, so what could be easier?!

This recipe came together in under 30 minutes. Most of it was hands off time when the potatoes were simmering in the soup.

Snacks for the girls can sometimes be a challenge. If they’re too healthy tasting, I find sometimes they are a miss. The balance is creating something healthy, still has a bit of fat (cause fat = good taste), but using whole ingredients and fruit. These Raspberry Muffins are a perfect match of all of those things. They are gluten-free as they use oat flour, and can easily be made dairy-free with a couple of modifications.
