Creamy Avocado Spaghetti Squash Pasta + How To Roast Spaghetti Squash

how to roast a spaghetti squash-6663

Somehow, I managed to live the first 25-26 years of my life before trying spaghetti squash. Actually, I could add many, many foods to that list. When I first came across spaghetti squash, I didn’t quite know what to think of it. Stringy strands of squash? How the heck do I get that to work? […]

10 Tomato Recipes To Knock Your Socks Off

Untitled-4

It’s time to face the cold hard truth: tomato season won’t be here for much longer. That is, unless my freezer has anything to say about it! Out of all the summer vegetables (or is it fruit?), I think tomatoes are the ones I mourn the most when the season is over. There’s nothing worse […]

How To Spiralize Vegetables (Without A Spiralizer!) + 2 Veggie “Pasta” Dishes

how to spiralize vegetables-4363

I’m sure many of you are familiar with spiralizer machines – famous for turning vegetables like zucchini into spiraled, curly, pasta-like strands. I first had zucchini “pasta” a few years ago at a raw food restaurant and I couldn’t get over how similar it was to regular pasta noodles. A spiralizer machine has always been in […]

Don’t you love when you discover a new food that blows your mind, despite the fact that others have been raving about it for ages? Some of mine: Avocado (I “hated” avocado until I ate my face off w/ guacamole in Mexico, 2007) Mushrooms (anyplace, anytime) Beets (raw, cooked, juiced, I like them all) Tofu […]

      The last week in December is one of my favourite times of the entire year. Everything slows down. It’s eerily quiet. The normal traffic has vanished. Snow falls from the sky and glistens on the trees. Eric’s home early from work.  We have impromptu get togethers with friends. I feel proud when I’m able […]

So how do I put this nicely……..biscotti season is going to be slightly delayed. Well, this is a bit awkward now isn’t it. The biscotti recipe that we fell in love with and made twice already turned into a dry piece of junk when I attempted to make it for the third time last night. […]

Are you feeling as well rested as I am today? I could seriously bounce off the walls right now and there isn’t a lick of caffeine in my body. Man, the extra hour is the best…aside from that whole getting dark earlier thing. That really put a wrinkle in my lasagna dinner photography plans last […]

Vegan Pumpkin Mac ‘n Cheeze Sauce

IMG_3331

Yesterday’s joke has actually turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy; I’ve been eating pumpkin non-stop all week. And I can’t seem to stop. Maybe there is some truth to my Long Weekend Hangover theory after all. Pumpkin does make everything better. Oh, and I have a great Pumpkin chia pudding recipe coming up. It might be […]

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 […]
