Ratatouille-Inspired Summer Veggie Dish

IMG_2573

  Every time we go to the farmer’s market, I always curse myself for not making a list, or at bare minimum, planning a couple recipes to guide my purchases. I always make a list for the grocery store, but for some reason it never occurs to me to make a list for the market. […]

Sun-dried Tomato Cheezy Kale Chips

IMG_9737

Eric has this new thing for kale chips. Specifically, “cheezy” kale chips. The guy is practically obsessed. Every time we find ourselves in Organic Garage, he sneaks a bag of kale chips into the cart and then gets annoyed with me if I eat too many of “his” chips. I never thought I’d have to […]

20-Minute Vegan Dinner for Two

IMG_9120

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 […]

Lightened Up Spring Stuffing

IMG_8778

A couple weeks ago, a reader named Cara emailed me with a recipe request for a vegan spring stuffing. Her complaint with traditional stuffing was that it felt too much like autumn instead of spring; it tends to be heavy, instead of light and fresh. Cara is onto something here, don’t you think? I love […]

Crispy Baked Onion Rings

IMG_7789

When it comes to onion rings, I’m a bit of a late bloomer. I don’t think I tried my first onion ring until I was in my twenties, and when I did, I can’t say I was blown away. They were a bit bland and I could think of a million other foods I’d rather […]

“Battered” Fried Chickpeas & Chickpea Basil Pesto

IMG_7431

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 […]

Easy Super Bowl Recipe: Black Bean Chili Dip

IMG_7278

There was once a time in my life when I sat through long, cold football games pretending to know what the hell was going on. After uprooting my life in New Brunswick and moving to Ontario with my mom, I was the new girl at a new high school where I met the man I […]

Dinosaur Dill Crunch Salad with Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas

IMG_6016

The healthy dinner recipes continue… I’m happy to report that as of December 30th, I finished off my cabbage that haunted me for almost 2 months in my fridge. 2 months. I think I’ve discovered the fountain of youth because cabbage just won’t die! Plus, I really didn’t want to bring this “cabbage baggage” with […]

Top 5 Salad Recipes of 2011

IMG_2320

      Last night, as I was eating my 4th holiday cookie in a row dunked in Holly Nog, I started to think about salad. and Green Monsters. Funny  how that works, eh? and then my thoughts drifted back to more holiday cookies. So I ate the last Chocolate Chip Cookie with toasted pecans (sorry Eric) […]
