This is one of my favourite salads, adapted to be gluten free so my son can enjoy it too! 
Gluten Free Panzanella Salad 
#gluitenfre   #salad   #recipe   #panzanella  
I grew up eating a salad with dinner almost every night, and most of the time it was one version or another of a panzanella salad. I didn't know it at the time; we just referred to it as salad, and the incredible juices left ...

Looking for some fun, outdoor activities for kids in Paris? Are your kids getting tired of all the museums and monuments? Why not enjoy an afternoon at the Jardins de Luxembourg?

Paris for Kids: Jardins de Luxembourg
#familytrave #Paris #Parisforkids #travel  
Paris is a large, bustling city that has no shortage of impressive buildings, photo-worthy monuments, and world-class museums. Most of which young children and even teens have a somewhat love-hate relationship with. Most children are more than happy to ride to the top of the Eiffel tower, but eventually get tired of trekking from one tourist attraction to the next. Sometimes kids (and parents) need a break from the often frantic pace ...

Gluten Free Paris: My review of Cafe Pinson. #glutenfre #Paris #trave #CafePinson  
Paris has a growing number of specialty cafes that focus on something specific, such as organic, vegetarian, local, dairy free, or gluten free food. Cafe Pinson is an organic cafe that is also wheat/gluten free and dairy free. Their menu is also largely vegetarian. They have three locations in Paris: one in the 3rd, one in the 10th, and one in the 16th.

Happy Easter!
This is the first year we are spending Easter in Paris, so there isn't any extended family here to celebrate with. Instead, we've had to create a new way to celebrate Easter that doesn't include the traditional large family g...

The simplest soup to make, but full of flavour and filling too!
Coconut Carrot soup (Gluten Free & Vegan)
#glutenfree #recipe #soup #vegan #coconutcarrot  
Do you avoid making pureed soups because they're too much work? All that blending only to never be able to get just the right consistency? You don't have to worry about that with this soup! Start with pureed carrots, and the ...

We've been in Paris for just over three months. New beginnings: The First 3 Months in Paris highlights the highs and lows of our move so far.
#expat #expatlife #Paris #newbeginnings  
I landed in Paris with my husband and kids on January 2nd, after an overnight flight from Toronto to Brussels, a flight from Brussels to Toulouse, and another from Toulouse to Paris. Sound convoluted? It was. We initially had plans to settle in Toulouse, but an unexpected job offer and a last minute location change meant it was cheaper to tack on an extra flight at the end of our journey than change the ones we had already booked.

Try my No Fail Gluten Free Crepe Recipe
These are great for making with kids, and can be made either sweet or savory.
#glutenfree #crepes #simplegf  
Crepes are one of those foods that everyone loves, but no one ever makes at home. Why? Who knows. Maybe it's because when we see the street vendors do it or the people at the creperies they have that special flat cooking surf...
