Double Chocolate Brownie Dough ‘Blizzard’


Over the past few months, Eric has been taking a Project Management Course to get his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. It hasn’t been easy on him juggling work, the 3.5 hour daily commute, studying, and building the deck at the same time! We’ve been looking forward to the completion of the course so he […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch ‘Blizzard’


Last night, I made a new veggie burger recipe. Don’t get too excited though, they were crap. I’m super picky when it comes to veggie burgers and I rarely meet one that I’m happy with. Eric goes, ‘They’d be good without all the lemon…’ ‘They are rosemary lemon burgers.’ ‘Oh…hah’ Fail. I also won’t tell […]


Long Weekend Recipe Round-Up


I don’t know about you, but I equate long weekends with a time to celebrate awesome food and drink with friends! The weather is sunny and HOT, so we hope to be outside as much as we can and also keep our meals fresh and light. Here are some recipes that I recommend for Canada […]


Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats


Growing up, I used to be a professional Rice Crispy Treat baker. I’d dump butter in a pot, add a bag of marshmallows, rice crisp, and vanilla. Spread into a pan. Stuff in face. Totally gourmet. Sticky, sweet, crunchy…and easy enough for a child to make. I still remember sticking the gooey cereal covered spoon […]


Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Oil-Free Walnut Chip Brownies


My gluten-free and vegan baking adventures continue! [See post 1 here] This time, I’m using a gluten-free flour called Teff Flour. Have you heard of Teff flour before? [Source] I hadn’t until I looked through the Clean Start and Clean Food Cookbooks. Teff flour is not only gluten-free, but it’s high in protein, iron, calcium, […]


Vegan Whole Wheat Chocolate Cupcakes with Spiced ‘Buttercream’


I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up this morning! The predicted morning thunderstorms were nowhere in sight which meant that I could get outside for exercise. I had a very windy 5 mile run and thought it was going to pour on me at one point, but then the sun peeked out and the […]


Chilled Double Chocolate Torte: The No-Bake Version


I’m often asked what my favourite vegan dessert is, the dessert that is a dazzler, crowd pleaser, and would fool even the toughest vegan dessert skeptic. I don’t know about you, but double chocolate pretty much always wins in my books, so my Chilled Double Chocolate Torte is at the top of the list. It’s […]


How To Squash A Chocolate Craving in 80 Calories


We took advantage of the gorgeous weather last night and did some more deck work and gardening. I like to leave Eric some words of encouragement on the scrap wood. ;) My plants seem to be adjusting well to the transplant! Some of the plants look like they have already grown an inch! The bell […]


Goodbye April, Hello May


Despite lingering throat soreness and a tickly cough that keeps me up in the night, I am feeling a bit better each day. I’d say I am about 80% healed. The flu just seems to be leaving my body very. very. slowly. My flu fighting plan includes: Juicing first thing every morning (ginger, lemon, grapefruit, […]


Vegan Overnight Oat Parfaits- 12 Recipes To Kick Off The Season!


Somewhere along the line I went from eating nothing for breakfast, to this… Need less to say, I haven’t looked back! After years of having no energy throughout the day, breakfast is now my favourite meal. I never skip breakfast anymore! Contrary to what I used to believe, eating a big breakfast did not make […]
