Homemade Tomato Sauce

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering


  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 4 huge onions, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 lb carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 4 x 28 oz cans of peeled plum tomatoes in tomato puree (you can also pick up a 100 oz. can from bulk discount stores)
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups chopped parsley
  • 8 large garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (optional)


1.  Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot.  Add onions and carrots and cook, covered, over low heat for about 15 minutes until vegetables are tender.

2.  Add the tomatoes, dried herbs, salt and pepper, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and cook over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally for about 30 minutes.

3.  Remove the bay leaves. Puree the sauce using an immersion blender or by pouring the sauce into a blender, then returning it to the pot once pureed.

4.  Over medium heat, add the parsley and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes.  Taste and correct seasoning. Add the vinegar now if the sauce lacks intensity.

Tips & Alternatives:

Don’t skimp on the olive oil. That is one of the ingredients that really adds to the flavor, and olive oil has nutritional value.

Think about adding ½ cup of sun-dried tomatoes as you add canned tomatoes.  You could also add 2-4 freshly roasted and peeled red peppers.

I store cooled, cooked sauce in 1-2 cup quantities in freezer bags. Press out as much air as possible, then label with content and date and freeze.

For a quick meal, heat sauce, add some fresh parmesan, a touch of cream and canned tuna. Serve over pasta. I’ve also been very indulgent and added lobster, shrimp or scallops to the sauce with cream. Plus fresh basil.

Eve's Pudding

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Eve's Pudding

My similar recipe using almond flour rather than gluten free flour was published October 2011.

I like to make this with Gala, Fuji or Braeburn apples (English Cox's Orange Pippin) as they are crisp and naturally sweet so you can use less added sugar. There's only two of us at home now, so I make a small quantity in a two cup pie plate (an oven-proof, wide and shallow cereal/soup bowl would do).  For the 4-8 portion recipe, cook in an 8x8 brownie pan (I find a regular 9” pie plate is too small). If you have a 10” deep pie plate, you can try that. Skip to the end of this recipe for the two-person quantities.


  • 3 large Gala, Fuji, Braeburn apples, peeled, cored, quartered and thinly sliced. I frequently don’t peel my apples.
  • 3 Tbsp. (45ml) maple syrup or light brown sugar (we like our maple syrup in New England and keep a quart in the freezer)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp. (45 ml) water
  • Pinch of salt

Cake Topping

  • 1+1/2 sticks butter (6 oz. or 170g) softened (Earth Balance is a good substitute)
  • ¾ cup sugar (6oz. or 170g)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1+1/3 cups (6+1/2 oz. or 175 g) Pamela's Artisan Flour Mix containing guar gum or King Arthur Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour (the regular brown rice, potato starch and tapioca starch blend)
  • 1/2 tsp. (3ml) xanthan gum added to brown rice flour blend (No need to add xanthan gum if you are using Pamela's Artisan Flour Mix as it already contains gum.)
  • 4 tsp. (20ml) gluten-free baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup (2 fl oz. or 60 ml) milk, water or buttermilk, even fruit juice.
  • ¼ - ½ cup sliced almonds (optional, but makes it look prettier and gives a contrasting crunch to dessert.)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the apples in an 8 x 8” brownie pan, with the maple syrup/brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and water.  Microwave for about 4 minutes until mix is hot and apples are softening. It is necessary to soften apples as otherwise they would collapse down as the cake is cooking. You can also half-cook apples on top of the stove. Spray baking dish with a gluten-free non-stick spray so the cake doesn't stick.
  2. Place all of the topping ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes until well blended.  (In the old days, this mix would have been made by creaming butter and sugar, then slowly beating in the egg, and folding in flour.  With the advent of electric mixer and microwave for softening butter, this can be mixed all at once and is known as the all-in-one.)
  3. Gently spread filling on top of apples to cover completely. 
  4. Sprinkle optional sliced almonds on top if you want and bake in 375 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes until golden brown throughout. 
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm or cold with cream. Or with sour cream mixed with honey or sugar to taste.  Actually, lite sour cream is less calories than heavy cream. We also enjoy vanilla Greek yogurt.

2-3 person quantity in 2 cup dish


  • 1 large Gala, Fuji, Braeburn apple, peeled, cored, quartered and thinly sliced. I frequently don’t peel my apples.
  • 1 Tbsp. (15ml) maple syrup or light brown sugar (we like our maple syrup in New England and keep a quart in the freezer)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) water
  • Pinch of salt

Cake Topping: 

  • 3 Tbsp. butter (1+1/2oz. or 43g) softened (Earth Balance is a good substitute)
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar (45 ml)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (1+3/4 oz. or 45 g) Pamela's Artisan Flour Mix containing guar gum or King Arthur Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour (the regular brown rice, potato starch and tapioca starch blend)
  • 1/8 tsp. xanthan gum added to brown rice flour blend (No need to add xanthan gum if you are using Pamela's Artisan Flour Mix as it already contains gum.)
  • 1 tsp. (5ml) gluten-free baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. (1/2 fl oz. or 15 ml) milk, water or buttermilk, even fruit juice.


  1.  Same directions as above but slightly less cooking time, about 25 minutes.

Grammy Crisp Coated Ice Cream Balls with Chocolate Drizzle

Ingredients:Grammy Crisp Ice Cream Balls

  • 12 Crunchmaster Grammy Crisp crackers, crushed
  • ¾ cup slow churned vanilla ice cream
  • 1-2 Tbsp. gluten-free mini chocolate chips
  • ¼ tsp. extra light olive oil or vegetable oil


  1. Place crackers in a plastic bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin or the back of a spoon. Pour into a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Using a small melon baller, make 12 small ice cream balls, roll each in cracker crumbs and place on a tray lined with wax paper. Freeze for ½-1 hour.
  3. Once ice cream is refrozen, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler, stirring until completely melted. (You can also microwave them 20 seconds at a time until melted, stirring in between. Take care not to overheat.)
  4. Add oil to the melted chocolate and stir. Using a flat spatula, transfer chocolate into a pastry bag or thicker plastic bag and cut a tiny tip off one edge. Pipe the chocolate in a zigzag motion over the ice cream balls. Refreeze for additional ½ to 1 hour. Serve.


  • If you do not have a bag to pipe the chocolate, simply dip a fork into the melted chocolate and drizzle over the ice cream balls. It's a fun way to get the kids involved too. If you do not have a melon baller, you can form balls with two spoons. They may not be perfectly round, but they will be just as delicious.

Gluten-Free Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from The Best American Recipes 2004-2005.

Makes 40 x 2 inch cookies/biscuits.


  • 1+1/2 cup certified gluten-free oats (I prefer rolled over instant)
  • ½ cup (2 oz., 60 g) Oonagh’s Gluten-Free Flour Mix
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp (2 ml) salt
  • ½ tsp (3 ml) baking soda
  • ½ cup (4 oz., 125 g) butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (4 oz., 125 g) peanut butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (1+3/4 oz) 
  • ½ cup (3 oz., 85 g) packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla
  • ¾ cup (4+1/2 oz., 130g) gluten-free semi-sweet chocolate chips

No xanthan gum needed.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

3. Beat the soft butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy.

4. Add the egg and vanilla, beat in well.

5. Mix together and then slowly beat in gluten-free oats, flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda until blended.

6. Add nuts and chocolate chips and mix in

7. Using a 1 tablespoon (15 ml) scoop, drop scoops of dough onto baking sheet, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.

8. Use a fork to flatten slightly and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until cookies are golden brown and firm around the edges. Remove from oven and cool for about 10 minutes until you can lift them onto a cooling rack.  They do firm up as they cool. 

Tips & Alternatives:

I found if I let the oven cool down a little, then put the cookies back into residual heat, I get a crisper cookie without over browning them. But, timing this and gauging the oven heat is not an easy thing to do, so I wouldn’t recommend this unless you’ve had some practice.
