Eat Your Greens Chickpea Medley


The flavour of food made from scratch never ceases to amaze me. I’ve been on a big “from scratch” kick ever since I wrapped up the recipes for my book; thankfully, it’s no longer a battle to motivate myself in the kitchen now that I’m not in there for 12 hours a day. I’m making […]


Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Fudge


Instead of working behind the camera like I usually am, earlier this week I was in front of my favourite photographer’s lens working in a beautiful kitchen with a handful of recipes from my book. We were shooting some kitchen scene and outdoor photos to sprinkle in my cookbook. Our landlord was gracious enough to […]


Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie with Toasted Almond Crust and Strawberry Vanilla Compote


Lately, I’ve been reflecting on lessons that I’ve learned since changing my career path and branching out on my own 4 and 1/2 years ago. Trying to pursue a new field in which I had no prior experience and grow a business feels like a rollercoaster most of the time. There are many ups and […]


Easy Homemade Vegan Chocolate + Instant Hot Chocolate


This 4-ingredient chocolate is what dreams are made of. It’s packed with antioxidants, is easy to make, and is refined sugar-free. What more could your taste buds ask for on Valentine’s day? Give me my man and this chocolate and I’m a happy lady. When I spotted this bag of cacao butter at Organic Garage […]


Vegan and Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Balls


I admire anyone who has the patience to make Cake Pops. I really do. I’m just not that patient when it comes to tediously decorating things that I want to stuff in my face. The thought of dipping, sticking, balancing, and making intricate designs on a sticky ball of chocolate really doesn’t send me running […]


Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars-8721

Magical Coconut Bars were always one of my favourite dessert squares growing up, next to Nanaimo bars. In my younger mind, the sweeter the dessert, the better. The words “too sweet” just weren’t in my vocabulary back then.   Fortunately, for my body (and cavity-prone teeth) I outgrew this mindset, embracing lighter, slightly earthier versions of […]


Chunky Cinnamon Raisin Nut Butter Recipe

maple cinnamon raisin nut butter recipe-8572

I’ve been on a total nut butter gifting spree lately. By the time I’m finished rattling all these nuts in my food processor, I may need a very strong hearing aid. Eric is convinced I’m slowly going deaf, so I guess covering my ears for dear life while processing nuts isn’t helping much. These things […]


Ultra Creamy Mocha Hot Cocoa

ultra creamy mocha hot cocoa-8612

Lately, our favourite thing to do at night is go look at Christmas lights. Now that we live in a city again, it’s much easier to find rows and rows of houses all lit up within walking or driving distance. On warmer evenings, we bundle up in our cold-weather gear and head out for a […]


Vegan & Gluten-Free Florentines (almond lace cookies)

vegan florentine cookies lace-8499

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for almost a full year. How does that even happen? The truth is, I made these cookies on January 1st 2012 (I know, what killer timing to make cookies), but I figured posting a cookie recipe on the first day of the year was akin to posting a salad […]


Granola Nut Clusters – Easy, Portable Holiday Gift Idea!

Granola Nut Clusters-8450

If I haven’t already convinced you to make an edible holiday gift this year, maybe this recipe today will seal the deal. It has to be one of the easiest recipes to throw together using less than 10 minutes of precious holiday time. Plus, it’s a recipe you can make well in advance without having […]
