Herb & Cheese Drop Biscuits… with a secret ingredient!

drop biscuits-7978

Last week, I set on a mission to create a quick and easy biscuit recipe free from shortening, butter, or lard. In terms of easy biscuit recipes, I knew a drop biscuit would fit the bill. When I’m making a meal around the holidays the last thing I want to add to my list is […]

Happy Friday to you. It’s finally time to announce the giveaway winners! 1) Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser I am so excited to let you know that we raised $10,073 for Hurricane Sandy relief. I am simply blown away. Thank you all for your generosity! I created a spreadsheet with your entries and we had a total […]


Spiced Red Lentil, Tomato, and Kale Soup

red lentil tomato soup-7710

This is the kind of soup with broth that tastes just as good, if not better, than the actual add-ins. Is it normal to want to guzzle the broth? Well, it is now, my friends. It’s actually a miracle I have any taste buds left because I’ve burned my tongue so many times since dedicating […]

Happy Halloween! Before I get to part 1 of the giveaway, I want to share a last-minute Halloween idea. I present to you: Spooky Shakes… They are more homely than scary, but let’s just go with it! I spotted this on Martha and I thought it was a cute idea. To make: all you do […]


Creamy Orange Sunshine Soup (aka…Frankensoup!)

creamy cashew carrot orange ginger soup frankensoup-7579

Frankenstorm. Earthquakes. Halloween parties. It has been quite an active weekend out there. I hope you’re all keeping safe! Nothing too crazy is happening (yet) weather-wise in Southern Ontario, just days of relentless windy rain and many more looming ahead. Between the quake on the coast of B.C. and Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, […]


Homemade Crispy Twix Bars

twix recipe vegan-7480

muhahauha I don’t know why, but that just felt appropriate to open with being 6 days from Halloween and all. Evil cackles are the perfect compliment to many situations, don’t you think? Such as: – When you’re bored at work and want to make coworkers think you’re up to something (aren’t you always??) See Dwight […]


Baked Apples Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

Baked Apple Oatmeal-7375

I’m a multi-tasking addict. It’s sad to say that I can’t perform many tasks without doing other things at the same time. For instance, when I was making this recipe yesterday, I was also cooking 2 other recipes, shooting photography, and doing computer work at the same time. That’s just how I function most days. […]


Homemade Vegan “Kit Kat” Bars

homemade kit kat-7234

I must have been really excited to share this post with you yesterday because while I was in the early stages of writing the post, I decided to hit publish instead of save draft. It was really no big deal and I quickly marked the post as private and it disappeared from my blog. Whew. […]


Homemade “Rolo” Knock-Offs – Vegan, Gluten-Free, & 5 Ingredients

homemade Rolo chocolate-7146

During my late teens and early twenties, my top 5 favourite chocolate bars were the following (in no particular order): Chunky Kit Kat, Wunderbar, Coffee Crisp, Rolo/Caramilk, and Twix. What about you? For the next Halloween recipe in my Treat-a-thon series, I made a healthier version of Rolo caramels. Instead of making a traditional caramel, […]


3-Ingredient Halloween Apple Bites

halloween apple bites-7011

This has to be one of the easiest Halloween treats in all of Halloween treat-making history. I’m really not a crafty person when it comes to making holiday things, but these were almost fool proof. Note the word almost! Eric and I did a “test run” one night last week and we could not stop […]
