I’m a big fan of your blog and a virtual assistant for the girl on bloor blog! I’m reaching out to you because I’m hoping to feature one of your photos in a recipe roundup of back to school lunch recipes I’m putting together. It’s going live on August 22. I’ll use just one photo with credit to you and link to your post. Can I include your whole grain spelt mini pitas with greek salad recipe?

Please let me know if this is okay πŸ™‚

Thanks in advance!

Hi Hannah, that would be fine, thank you!

Why not use a cheap bamboo sushi mat to shape your pepperoni. Put a square of plastic wrap over it to keep it clean, then your aluminum foil and pepperoni, shape perfectly and you’re done. I also use it for refrigerator cookies.

Good idea!

Just had to stop and say i love your site! I recently decided to go vegan and was having a hard time finding recipes, and i stumbled across your site and fell in love!!

11 MJ January 4, 2013 at 21:49

Hi Heidi,

Lovely, lovely blog. I stumbled upon it whilst looking for a Tasteologie badge. Would I be able to use your badge for my blog?


12 Alisha June 25, 2012 at 15:14

Whoa….just found your frosty breakfast bar recipe on pinterst and made it maybe an hour ago….have already eaten FOUR of them! Eeek! I’m addicted!!

Thanks for this yummy new snack!

On your no bake energy bites, what can i replace the coconut with? I prefer no flours or wheat germs so was at a loss. Thanks so much!

14 Heidi @ Food Doodles June 11, 2012 at 12:43

You could even use ground up nuts or even seeds(whole seeds like sesame seeds, poppy seeds and chia seeds are good). You could use more oats too(or even grind up some rolled oats so they aren’t quite as chewy), although I wouldn’t recommend using all oats – I’d mix it up with some other stuff too.

Hello! Just tried the banana bread recipe with spelt! We love it. Had to make a few modifications because I live at 8,000 feet altitude but it’s a keeper recipe! I was wondering if you have any recipes for regular spelt bread (to be used for toast, sandwiches, etc.) that I can pilfer and modify for our altitude and my bread machine. I’ve tried, and wasted, about 10 loaves so far and am now seeking any help I can get. Thanks!

16 Heidi @ Food Doodles May 28, 2012 at 10:50

I’m so glad you like it! I’m sorry, I don’t have any other spelt bread recipes. I’ve been meaning to try to make a spelt sandwich bread though, so in the future maybe I can help. I know nothing about high altitude baking though, great job getting other recipes to work!

17 Tana May 14, 2012 at 20:03

Hi again, I really enjoy your blog and will continue to follow for sure. My good friend Shelley Adams is the one that sent me your review of my soup and her cookbook. We worked together for years doing movie catering in Vancouver & also grew up together. I love all 3 of her cookbooks, they all have amazing photos and so many incredibly delicious recipes. In the book you have 3rd (purple one) my Mum’s (Barbie’s) shortbread recipe is in it & it’s really great too! Thanks again for the wonderful review!

18 Tana May 9, 2012 at 12:35

Hey, I’m Tana & thank you for your love of my soup! It developed even more after my trip to India but before that I made it without lentils and it was incredibly delicious as well! I noticed a gal saying her husband didn’t like lentils & you can easily leave them out. The soup is also very good cold with a drizzle of yogurt & fresh chopped cilantro, cumin & a squeeze of lime. A few pita chips πŸ™‚ Perfect for summer! Thanks again, Tana

19 Heidi @ Food Doodles May 14, 2012 at 19:24

Hi Tana! Thank you so much for the recipe – I know this will be one of my favorites for years to come. I can’t wait to make it again already! I’m excited to try it cold now too πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hi there!

I was just looking at your Chai Coconut recipe. While i’m not a fan of coconut I absolutely LOVE chai. However, I just wanted to let you know that Chai actually has more caffeine than espresso. I’m a Barista. I was surprised at first when I first found out, we are supposed to warn pregnant woman of the fact before they order one. But i’ll definitely have to try out this recipe especially with Summer coming πŸ˜‰

21 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 10, 2012 at 08:49

Wow, thanks for the warning. That’s really surprising since it’s black tea, which is usually better than coffee. Thank goodness I’ve been buying a decaf variety since getting pregnant. Maybe I wont go back to the regular chai!

22 Sihi March 14, 2012 at 14:48

Hi Heidi! I was looking for the Tasteologie badge online and that’s how I got to your blog. I was wondering if I could use it and mention you for the credit. Do let me know if that’s okay with you.

Love your blog, the pics and the recipes! The BBQ Black Bean Pizza got me drooling…need to try this recipe out this week. Thanks for sharing!


23 Heidi @ Food Doodles March 14, 2012 at 16:40

That’s fine with me! Thank you so much for asking πŸ™‚

24 Michele Garcia February 1, 2012 at 22:27

Hi Heidi-

was wondering where you got your tastespotting “my gallery” badge. I’ve been looking for a badge for tastespotting like foodgawker has, but haven’t been able to find it on TS’s site. Thanks for your help!

25 Heidi @ Food Doodles February 2, 2012 at 10:33

Hi Michele,
I actually made that badge myself. You can use it if you like, just be sure to save the image and upload it on your own site to use. And please send anyone else that wants it over to my site, please. Thanks!

26 Michele Garcia February 2, 2012 at 12:08

Thank you, Heidi, that’s very kind of you!

27 Molly September 20, 2011 at 12:42

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I tried the energy bites with brown rice syrup, and it worked really well – not too sweet, but sticking together nicely!

28 Janice September 2, 2011 at 11:54

Hi Heidi, I really like your blog and those badges you have on the side. Where did you get them? I’ve been looking for a Tasteologie badge everywhere. Feel free to check out my blog and link to it on your blogroll (I have already added you to mine!). Thanks!

29 Noreen Courchene August 21, 2011 at 19:27

Hi Heidi-

I just found your blog from a friend on FB and I love it! I have not had a chance to look at it all yet but am so excited to learn more and find recipes I know are healthy! I also wanted to share with you a site you may like, I grind my own grains and make bread, muffins, cookies, soups ect with the info I learned from this store. ( I live in GA about 10 min from the store but if you look at their co-op info they ship out to other locations) My family loves the bread- I use a hard red and hard white wheat to make it and have never tried it without gluten but the recipe states it is an optional addition. I use kamut and spelt for the muffins and a soft white wheat to make the cookies.
I look forward to seeing more posts and looking back on all ones already here! Thank you!


30 Heidi @ Food Doodles September 1, 2011 at 15:13

Thanks so much for your comment and for dropping by! I’m so excited to hear about all the baking you do with freshly ground flours! I love grinding my own grains and using them in baking, although it’s taken me a lot of experimenting to get the end result I want. It’s so worth it though! Thanks for the link! I’m enjoying looking through their recipes and can’t wait to try some πŸ˜€

31 chopinandmysaucepan August 12, 2011 at 16:35

Hello Heidi,

I just noticed that we have the same wordpress theme and was wondering if you could please tell me how you put your wonderful recipes in that awesome neat “box” with the print option within your blogpost and how you put all those logos below your blog footer! I have been cracking my head for the last 4 months since I started my blog and still have not figure it out yet πŸ™ πŸ™

Thanks a million πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


32 Heidi @ Food Doodles August 16, 2011 at 14:43

Hi! Sorry it took so long to get back to you. If you’re blogging with I don’t think it’s possible to get the little print box. If your blogging with Wordpress on your own server then you can download a plugin called “Wordpress Print This Section” to do that. Also, if you want to put things at the bottom of your page, click on widgets and near the bottom of the list on the right side you should see a few “Footer Widget Areas”. Putting things in that section will show up at the bottom of your site πŸ™‚ I hope that helps!

33 chopinandmysaucepan August 18, 2011 at 01:41


Thanks to you, at least my recipes look a lot more presentable!

I have just included a back link to your blog and a note of appreciation for your help in my latest blog post πŸ™‚

Happy cooking!

Hi there, I really enjoy your site. When I make the chia seed pudding even though I soak it overnight it does expland and become gelatinous but still is cunchy. Is it supposed to be that way? Any suggestions?
Be well,
April DeMarco

35 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 28, 2011 at 15:36

The seeds actually do still have a bit of a bite to them even after soaking for a long time. I don’t think they ever get really soft. I found the texture to be strange at first and now I really enjoy it πŸ™‚
Thank you for stopping by!
