Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins (vegan)

I love to transform my favourite recipes into something new. Often, it’s not too far of a stretch to take a solid recipe base and create something different and fresh. Maybe I’m a baking nerd, but I just love the process of calculating measurements, swapping new ingredients for others, figuring out new baking times, and […]

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

For the past couple seasons, I’ve been on the hunt for pumpkin pie spice mix. And I’ve been slowly going crazy not being able to locate it in any local grocery stores. Don’t they know how many they would sell from me alone?! I longed for the day I would cross paths with it, making […]

A simple roasted butternut squash salad

Last year my dear friend Karly mentioned that she started seeing a business coach. She was struggling to find balance with her quickly growing career while juggling a busy personal life, and found some much needed support and accountability with a coach. Consider me intrigued! I admire her for taking the initiative to get outside […]

Golden Red Lentil Dal with Cilantro-Speckled Basmati

Asking for help isn’t something that comes to me naturally as I’ve always been a fiercely independent worker. My previous supervisors always commented on this trait almost immediately whether it was in an academic or business setting, and I often took a lot of pride in the fact that I could do things on my […]

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte with Salted Pumpkin Spice Syrup

I’m baaaaaaaack! Miss me? Better yet…did you miss my tempting recipes popping into your feed each week? I sure have missed you all and this blog. Thankfully, it’s finally time to kick up my heels and celebrate because I handed in my second cookbook manuscript yesterday. All 250 pages of it including 100+ recipes (most […]

Warm + Roasted Winter Salad Bowl

This salad is a good example of how I love my salads in the winter – warm, hearty, and bursting with nutrition. Like a big hug. I have no desire to eat a cold salad right now (unless it’s this one, I suppose). It’s light, but still has that “stick to your ribs” quality I […]

Superfood Crunch Salad with Homemade Balsamic Apple Vinaigrette

This past year was easily my most memorable on record. It started with finding out we were expecting early in January, then it was a move and a several month house renovation (I do not recommend this while pregnant, hah), my first cookbook released in March, September brought the birth of our baby girl, and […]

Snickerdoodles! (vegan + gluten-free)

Meet my favourite holiday cookie of 2014 – the vegan and gluten-free Snickerdoodle! I’ve been testing all kinds of Christmas cookies this year and I decided to pick the best of the bunch and share that recipe with you before the holidays. The humble-looking Snickerdoodle doesn’t get enough respect in my opinion; it’s often overshadowed […]

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, […]

Crowd-Pleasing Vegan Caesar Salad

My dad is coming to visit this week. This means two very important things are on my “what to make dad” menu. 1) Chili, always and 2) Caesar salad. Those are essential food groups for the guy. Anything else is icing on the cake. Plus, I always welcome the opportunity to use my huge bamboo […]
