Top 12 Vegan Entrées of 2011


      The last week in December is one of my favourite times of the entire year. Everything slows down. It’s eerily quiet. The normal traffic has vanished. Snow falls from the sky and glistens on the trees. Eric’s home early from work.  We have impromptu get togethers with friends. I feel proud when I’m able […]


Top 5 Salad Recipes of 2011


      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) […]


Nutcracker Cookies


Some of you might remember that my Grandpa was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma right around this time last year. He had a rocky start to 2011, but his strength carried him through some very tough times and he enjoyed a happy and stable summer and fall season. He has unfortunately encountered another set back with […]


Easy Holiday Gift: Vegan Chocolate Macaroon Truffles


You couldn’t twist my arm enough to make me eat one of these creamy chocolate truffles right now. I know what you’re thinking…Who are you and what have you done with Ange? Well, the reason for my truffle aversion right now is a little something called a hangover…of the red wine kind. Here I was […]


What To Do With Leftover Pie: Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole


If you’re like my family, you probably have some leftover pie after a big holiday meal. Or maybe you don’t because Uncle Joe got up at 2am, cleared the place out, and then blamed it on Scruffy! Poor Scruffy. The next morning, no one really has the nerve to make the first move on the […]


Vegan Pumpkin Pie, Three Ways: Classic, Rustic, & Gluten-Free


  Making a pie from scratch has to be one of the most feared tasks of all time. I would say it ranks right up there with bread baking, public speaking, and drinking something green. I always had this expectation that everything had to go perfectly for the pie to turn out. If my dough […]


Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe


One of my frequently asked questions around this time of the year is always, “What vegan recipes can I make for my upcoming holiday meals that will impress the skeptics?” Eating vegetarian, vegan, or other special diet can be challenging, especially around the holidays. It doesn’t help matters when “Uncle Joe” is ranting and raving […]


Top 10 Recipes This Fall


So how do I put this nicely……..biscotti season is going to be slightly delayed. Well, this is a bit awkward now isn’t it. The biscotti recipe that we fell in love with and made twice already turned into a dry piece of junk when I attempted to make it for the third time last night. […]


Eggplant Parmesan


Before you tell me you hate eggplant and cast off this recipe, hear me out: I’m not a big eggplant fan either. I think Eggplant is pretty spongy and bland. In fact, it’s probably one of my least favourite vegetables!  Poor ‘lil Eggplant, right? :\ I decided to give Eggplant another shot when I came […]


Mushroom Millet Soup with Cheezy Garlic Bread


Imagine this scene: Last night, Eric and I got dressed up (me as the Queen of Hearts, him as the Scream character) and we stuffed 40 treat bags for the trick or treaters. They were bursting with candy and small toys like leap frogs and mini games. Last year we got around 20 kids, so […]
