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. […]

Cherry-Strawberry Chia Seed Fool with Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped Cream

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!).

I think I jinxed myself yesterday talking about the cold because today we are under an extreme cold weather alert. The only upside to this cold weather is that there is usually some beautiful sunshine to go with it so today is really bright and clear outside! Since I posted about my chocolate torte experience […]

Chilled Double Chocolate Torte: The No-Bake Version

IMG_4993-3

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 […]

Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Tart (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)

Halloween week without chocolate is simply a crime. We must fill our quota! Luckily, I have the perfect solution.. After teasing you with this dessert the other week (and seeing you lose your mind over it) I figured I better deliver the goods. I set a lofty goal of making this chocolate pie as friendly […]

End of Summer Peach Apple Cobbler

IMG_2070

Last weekend, I bought my last basket of Ontario peaches from the farmer’s market. From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut. But first, I wanted to make a farewell summer recipe using fresh peaches, a couple of the season’s first apples, and […]

Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

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 […]
