One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)

onebowljumbochocolatechunkcookiesohsheglows-4259

Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

With an almost bursting bladder and plenty of nervous anticipation, yesterday we headed off to our anatomy scan ultrasound appointment. I always find that I get anxious for pregnancy ultrasounds in general, but this one especially. I felt a knot in my stomach all morning long. It’s a fairly long ultrasound since they check all […]

Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts with a Sunflower Cookie Crust (Nut-free, Vegan)

veganpumpkinpienutfree (1 of 1)

A couple weeks ago, I received a reader recipe request. Let’s call him “Jason”. Jason asked if I could create a nut-free version of my Raw Pumpkin-Maple Pie with a Baked Oat Crust (found in my cookbook, page 247) because his wife can’t have cashews and pecans. Apparently, it was tormenting her not to be […]

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

For the past couple seasons, I’ve been on the hunt for pumpkin pie spice mix. And I’ve been slowly going crazy not being able to locate it in any local grocery stores. Don’t they know how many they would sell from me alone?! I longed for the day I would cross paths with it, making […]

My sister and family are here visiting this week and they brought us about 10 pounds of freshly picked cherries from my brother-in-law’s parent’s house (they have about 7 cherry trees…jealous!). It was like Christmas morning when this loot arrived. I’m eating these beauties by the fist full. Adriana is going wild over them. It’s […]

Your comments on my Kitchen Quirks story were quite hilarious. They also led to even more funny stories here at home and among our friends and family. I got a text from a friend shortly after posting. “I’m reading your kitchen quirks post aloud to my husband (because he is absolutely nuts about the dishwasher […]

I’m preparing to host my very first Easter dinner tomorrow – a totally plant-based menu with all the fixins! Go big or go home, I say. Usually we go to my in-laws for Easter, but this year my sister-in-law had to stay close to home for an event so we offered to host. I’m making […]
