Gooey Caramel Apple Slice (for Passover)


So the count down to Passover 2014 begins!  Our big sedar is at my mother-in-law's next Monday.  So I have for you a yummy Kosher for Passover recipe!

The only time I ever hear Adam complain about too much chocolate is Passover.  In order to make up for all that he is missing out on for 8 days, I usually bake up a whole slew of rich, chocolate-based desserts.  Although he is usually enthusiastic at the beginning, eventually it all becomes too much for him.

I will be making some chocolate Passover recipes, but I decided to make one that includes one of his other favorite dessert flavours: apple!  It also contains no quinoa.  Adam is not a huge quinoa fan, but because its been deemed kosher for Passover, I tend to make it a lot every year. 

Don't worry, I will still be posting some chocolate and quinoa recipes for Passover, but this one is first on the list.

Gooey Caramel Apple Slice (for Passover)

1/2 cup melted coconut oil, cooled a bit
1 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp salt

1.25 lbs apples, peeled and sliced*
1 dropper full of vanilla stevia (optional)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp konjac flour or arrowroot starch**

Whisk together the oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs.  Mix in almond flour and salt.  Spread evenly into a square 9x9 parchment-lined baking dish.  Toss apples with remaining ingredients and spread over almond mixture.  Bake in the oven at 350F for 35-40 minutes.  Let cool.  Using parchment paper, lift out of baking dish.    Serve plain or with vanilla yogurt or ice cream.  Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days or freeze.

*I managed to find a bag of already peeled, frozen apples at the grocery store, which cut down the time required dramatically.
**If you can't find konjac flour at your health food store, you can buy it online or use the arrowroot starch.

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
