Springtime Strawberry Lime Mango Crisp (Vegan + GF)

strawberrymangocrisp-7332

Dear Mom, If we lived close by, I would make you this strawberry mango crisp for Mother’s Day brunch. It’s pretty, bubbly, and sweet, with many different layers. Just like you. There’s a nutty layer too – wink, wink. (Two teenage girls in the house can do that to a person!) When I think back […]

I’m still digging up cookbook recipes that I didn’t include in the final book. It’s like finding buried treasures in my Google document! The beauty of all the recipe testing that went down over the past 2 years is that I have so much inspiration leftover to tweak and share here – such as this […]

Summer Stone Fruit Crisp

Recently, I got back into weight training. And when I say recently, I mean that I still can’t move from my workout two days ago. Is it too soon to talk about getting back into something when it’s been less than a week? That’s debatable, I suppose. Really, the pain is not that bad, but […]

Tropical Pineapple Boozy Baked Oatmeal

If Pineapple Upside Down Cake was morphed into breakfast, this would be it. Shredded coconut, rolled oats, pineapple, banana, and a shot of coconut rum for good measure, makes this one of the tastiest oatmeal recipes to ever cross my lips. The coconut rum accents the tropical flavours in the dish, but you can always […]

Vegan Bananas Foster Baked Oatmeal

Tell me if this always happens to you too… Whenever you need the perfectly ripe (or even overripe) bananas, you arrive at your grocery store only to find green-as-grass bananas. Every time! Then on the days when you don’t need bananas, you see rows and rows of perfect yellow bananas. It’s a major conspiracy, don’t […]

Baked Apples Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

Baked Apple Oatmeal-7375

I’m a multi-tasking addict. It’s sad to say that I can’t perform many tasks without doing other things at the same time. For instance, when I was making this recipe yesterday, I was also cooking 2 other recipes, shooting photography, and doing computer work at the same time. That’s just how I function most days. […]

Early Morning Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Every morning around 6am my alarm clock goes off. It starts quietly and gets progressively louder and more annoying if I try to fall back to sleep. I’m usually in the middle of some random dream and I think about it for a few minutes as I try to will myself back to sleep. If […]

Strange, yet familiar, back-to-school feelings have been making their way into my brain lately. It has been 4 years since I graduated with a master’s degree in social psychology and I’m convinced I will forever feel like a student this time of the year. Sometimes, I wish I could do it all over because I’d […]

IMG_9928

As I was flipping through Let Them Eat Vegan the other day (yup, still obsessed), I came across an interesting way to prepare steel cut oats. Dreena’s “Instant Steel Cut Oats” caught my eye because it claimed I could enjoy a hot bowl of steel cut oats in just minutes. I love steel cut oats, […]
