15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta

IMG_0200-3

Oh…my….gosh. Alert the grocery store because there is going to be an avocado shortage in my town. Well, more than usual that is. [And yes, I said ‘store’. As in singular…We’re small town folk.] You can whip up this pasta dish in under 15 minutes flat! I know I will be making it again and […]

We loved reading your comments in my Without Self-Love, I have Nothing post. Thanks for sharing your experiences! When Eric and I first started dating, we did all of the traditional things that we thought we were supposed to do on Valentine’s Day. We went to the crowded restaurants with long wait times and mediocre […]

Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheeze: Two Ways

IMG_2385

I have been dying to add butternut squash into my Mac ‘n Cheeze recipe ever since I featured Lou’s Macaroni Un-Cheese recipe in my Recipe Link Love last week. Butternut squash pureed into macaroni and cheese just sounds like a match made in heaven, doesn’t it? It is also a fun way to sneak in […]

I hope you are enjoying a day off today to begin the long weekend. :) I can’t say I’m having a Good Friday so far. I’m not one to really make a fuss about aches and pains, but this cold is a nasty one! My sore throat is getting worse and worse and the pain […]

Eric, Steve, Dan, Shayne, and Steve worked on the deck this weekend and they got so much accomplished! It almost looks like a deck now. :) The weather was what the boys called, ‘Deck Building Weather’. Sunny and just warm enough to be comfortable. The workstation Eric set up…heh View from other end: This is […]

Vegetable and Edamame Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce

IMG_6717

Yesterday morning, I spotted a pack of squirrels throwing a Sunday brunch around my compost bin. The nerve! One of the squirrels was eating an apple core and another was feasting on a piece of burnt toast! Those crazy little buggers. It appears that the animals in our backyard do not want my compost waste […]

Life feels like it’s spinning at 6453 klicks per hour these days. Some things are happening in our lives that I can’t tell you about just yet, but will soon. Don’t you hate when people say that? I do. I hate myself for saying that. No one likes a tease, including me. But here I […]

Quick & Dirty 5-Ingredient Vegan Cheeze Sauce & Recipe Challenge

IMG_0796

One of the things that has surprised me the most with vegan cuisine is how I’m able to create similar flavours and textures that I used to enjoy while eating animal products. The goal, for me, is not to aim for the vegan dish to taste exactly the same, but to try to bring out […]

Roasted Tomato Basil Pesto

IMG_1422-2

We haven’t been this excited about a dinner recipe in a long time. Probably not since the 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta, which Eric said – in between shoveling this pasta in his mouth – is “not as good as this roasted tomato pesto recipe”. I didn’t believe it, but after tasting and then devouring […]

Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheeze

IMG_2422

Over the past couple years, I’ve made many different vegan cheeze sauce recipes. The initial ones weren’t what I would consider spectacular, but with trial and error I’ve made recipes that not only satisfy my cravings, but make me crave the new recipes instead of actually craving cheese itself. As a former cheese addict, this […]
