Happy Thanksgiving Homemade Pumpkin Butter

20101005-IMG_8987

Good morning! This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving, which seems strange to me after the weekend madness, but I am just happy that I am not the one preparing the entire meal this time. ;) I have been thinking of something that I could bring for my in-laws that would make a fun Thanksgiving hostess […]

Taco Chili with Nacho Cheeze Sauce

IMG_4628

Before we get to this amazing dinner that we enjoyed last night, I thought I would update you on my vegetable garden progress! Eric and I built the first of two raised beds for the veggie garden. Each bed is 4 feet by 8 feet.  We used this step-by-step tutorial for a raised bed. Our […]

Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce

IMG_5378

Out of all of the recipes on my Weekly Meal Plan, this is the one we were most excited about! I first made vegan enchiladas with ‘cheeze’ sauce almost a year ago and Eric has been gushing about them ever since. I must agree that I really don’t make them enough…and I’m not sure why […]

Easy Tomato Basil Cream Pasta

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 […]

Homemade BBQ Sauce

8765 (1 of 5)

Back in March 2010, Eric decided to clean up his diet. We were on vacation in Florida when he realized that most of his favourite foods and drinks (such as Coke, Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, Ketchup, multigrain bread, etc) contained high fructose corn syrup. We found this odd because the labels in Canada do not list […]

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing

IMG_9561-3

I want to be a Goddess. Or even better, a glowing Goddess. Meow. However, I don’t always feel like a Goddess in my day to day life. Being a baker & food blogger covered in syrup, flour, and who knows what else on a daily basis isn’t exactly Goddess material. Neither is my worn apron […]

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 […]

Make-Ahead Steel Cut Oatmeal & 4 New Oatmeal Recipes

IMG_2128

You wouldn’t know it from the plethora of steel-cut oatmeal recipes I have on the blog (one), but steel-cut oats are actually my favourite way to enjoy oatmeal. The only problem is I’m usually too hungry to wait 30 minutes to eat breakfast. Hence, my obsession with quick breakfasts like Vegan overnight oats, Green Monsters, […]
