Glowing Green “Pasta” Primavera

It’s taken me a while to feel inspired to cook spring recipes due to the move/renos and the on-again, off-again spring weather (ahem, fresh blanket of snow last week), but now I can say it finally feels like spring. Today also happens to be Earth Day which is even more reason to eat some plants. […]

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 […]

Jumbo Stuffed Shells

I made this recipe several months ago and completely forgot about sharing it with you. Not because it was unmemorable – quite the opposite – but recipes and photos occasionally get lost in the bunch if I’m not careful. The photos on my computer are a bit out of control (or so says my husband). […]

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 […]

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 […]

Quick & Easy Creamy Tomato Mushroom Pasta

This weekend, I had one thing on my mind: comfort food. and tea. Lots of tea. It’s probably not the proper thing for me to admit as a grown ass woman (sorry, it sounded much better than typing “adult”), but I absolutely love snow storms. They always bring me back to my childhood. I remember […]

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 […]

It was a rollercoaster of a week. On Friday, I shipped my huge bundle of book edits back to New York. A definite high point this year. Strangely, I enjoyed the meticulous process of sifting through each chapter line by line. By the time I finished almost every page was scribbled with red ink and […]
