“Battered” Fried Chickpeas & Chickpea Basil Pesto

This battered chickpea recipe happened completely by accident. Accidents don’t usually happen in my kitchen, unless we’re talking about the bad kind. Like when my processor exploded while making this pesto… Or when the blender decided to erupt, exploding Green Monster lava all over the kitchen. Or those (many) times when I plugged in the […]

20-Minute Vegan Dinner for Two

My favourite way to cook is to just grab things from the fridge and improvise. If you asked me to do this 5 years ago, I would’ve looked at you like you had two heads. It gets easier with practice though. Something that used to cause me so much stress is now one of my […]

5 Make-Ahead Vegan and Gluten-Free Lunches: Part 1

Last week, a blog reader, Mary, asked me if I could put together a post on healthy lunches that could be made ahead of time. I thought it was a great challenge for back to school, so I got to work planning! I spent a few days coming up with different lunches that could be […]

Asparagus and Potato Salad

Oh, long weekend, we will miss you dearly! It rained yesterday on and off but we still managed to get some work done outside. Eric finished installing the railing posts and he started the fascia boards along the edge. It gives a lovely polished effect! Meanwhile, I tended to the garden beds while the worms […]

Avocado Strawberry Caprese

(When I started the blog way back in 2008, I had just graduated with a Master’s degree in Social-Personality Psychology and was working as […]

Basil Scalloped Tomatoes and Croutons

Hi there! Today has been a great day. I attribute this to a few things: 1) Not having to chew my Green Monster this morning, 2) A great 4 mile run in between downpours of rain, 3) I finished all my Farmer’s market prep, and 4) I got some very exciting travel news (info to […]

Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheeze: Two Ways

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 […]

Cheezy Hummus

I was out running by 6:30am this morning trying to beat this crazy heat wave we’re experiencing here in Southern Ontario. It was a cool and crisp 15 Celsius…the perfect morning for a 4.5 mile run! I was glad to get out there early because the temperature quickly rose to 30 C by noon. I […]

Chickpea Miso Gravy Bowl with Sweet and Tangy Portobello Mushrooms

Sometimes I feel like I have a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other this time of year. The devil tells me to eat ALL the cookies, chocolates, and treats (you know…#allthethings) while the angel reminds me how much better I feel when I’m eating ALL the rainbow. [I told Eric this, […]
