Welcome to Flavour and Savour!
I hope you'll find what you're looking for here. Here's a little bit about me and the recipes I post on Flavour and Savour.
You've come to the right place!
If you're struggling to find gluten-free recipes that actually taste delicious, you've come to the right place! And if you're looking for ways to reduce sugar in your diet, you'll be happy with the recipes you'll find here.
I know you need quick and easy meals, whether you're feeding a family, or just one or two people. While I love to cook, just like you, I have lots of other interests and I don't want to spend all my time in the kitchen!
I've been following a gluten-free diet for over five years. While I found it difficult at first, I soon discovered that there is a world of delicious, healthy, gluten-free options waiting to be enjoyed.
Gluten-free eating doesn't have to be complicated!
My goal is to create and share gluten-free recipes that everyone can make. I’m here to show you that gluten-free eating doesn’t have to be complicated! I’ll help you make healthy meals that you’ll want to share with family and friends.
Eat fresh, eat clean!
Eating "clean" is important to me, as it is to you. I cook most things from scratch, but I'll use store-bought items when it makes sense to do so.
I cook with fresh, local ingredients and I try to use whatever is in season. I'm realistic, however, since I live in Canada, I do buy tropical fruits and imported vegetables when they're not available here.
I love to entertain and have friends for dinner. I always start a meal with appetizers and finger foods.
Dessert is the crowning glory to a meal, and you'll find tasty options to make. While most of my baking recipes use either low-glycemic coconut sugar or 0-calorie Monkfruit sweetener, I always provide options for you, so you can choose what's best for you.
A little about me
I live in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. It's a foodie's paradise. I love having a garden! We grow a lot of our own vegetables, berries, and fruit and sometimes (along with our puppy, Maggie) we're lucky enough to catch our own salmon, prawns and crab!
I used to be a Grade One teacher. I loved my job. There's nothing in the world quite as exciting as watching 6-year-olds when they discover they can read. But I decided that there are lots of great things to do in this world. Helping you create wholesome meals is now what I love to teach!
