I know, everyone says they have the BEST banana bread recipe, so I am no different except my recipe is only 6 ingredients, half is just banana! Add in chocolate chips or nuts for a change (I usually just eyeball it based on how many I want). You've gotta try it!
Tourtiere is a French Canadian Meat Pie, and something I remember eating every Christmas Eve at my grandparents house in Ottawa, Ontario, my Dad's family being French Canadian. When we moved across the country to BC, when I was 10, we continued the tradition. When I got married, with step kids, we carried on my beloved Christmas Eve Tourtiere tradition. This is the recipe my grandfather used (with a few tweeks from my Mom).
Butter Tarts are one of Canada's most popular desserts originating in Quebec but most popular in Ontario. This is my mother's butter tart recipe... I make it every Christmas to give to family and friends... it was once of my Dad's favourites. If I wasn't lactose intolerant, I don't know how many I would give away, LOL!
It just doesn't feel like Christmas without these cookies, my step-son puts in a request every year and we enjoy it with some hot cocoa. These were also the cookies we left for "Santa" every year, so they hold a special place in my heart!
Pea Soup is another French Canadian meal, this split pea soup is the EASIEST recipe, a total dump and go meal. We like having it with french bread.

Being lactose intolerant I am always looking for ways to adjust recipes so that I am able to enjoy them as well. Homemade chocolate sauce for ice cream, brownies or any other dessert calling for chocolate sauce doesn't have to be full of chemicals like the store bought stuff! This will stay good in the fridge for a few months.
Adapted From Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes, this McDonald's Big Mac sauce a run for it's money! Using fat-free ingredients you can make a healthier version of the Big Mac.
Good, dairy free chocolate frosting is hard to find. When your working with food allergies and intolerances can be overwhelming , especially when you aren't used to adjusting for it, if it's a guest. This is a simple and creamy dairy free frosting everyone will love.
I hated using commercial cleaners on the floors, my dogs walk on them, even when wet (as much as I would like them not to). So before the days of pinterest I came up with a safe alternative and posted it on Genius Kitchen (then it was recipezaar) in 2005 and it has a 5 star (53 reviews). This is the ONLY thing I use on my floors, and they always look shiny and clean!
A dairy free white glaze, a perfect addition to your desserts.

This is a copy-cat for Starbucks Coffee Cake, great for coffee dates or brunch!
I cannot use commercial oven cleaners, I have chemical sensitivities so I used what I had after researching how to get burnt food off a frying pan. Sometimes I will add lemon juice if it's extra dirty!
You can use raw almonds or for enhanced flavor bake almonds on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes @ 300 degrees prior to processing.
Cleaning silver isn't something you do very often, but before hosting a party you might want to give them an easy clean to bring out the shine!
