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 […]

Easy St. Patrick’s Day Appetizer: Sneaky Shamrock Spinach Crackers & Green Dip

IMG_8198

This has to be one of the easiest green recipes I’ve ever made, aside from the Green Monster. I’ve wanted to make green crackers for a while now, using spinach for the lovely green colour and burst of nutrition. Attempt #1 was adapting the gluten-free crackers with spinach. The dough was super sticky and it […]

Easy Lemon Dill Tofu

IMG_8175

I really can’t believe that I went all these years without tofu in my life. I was under the impression that tofu gave me horrible stomach pains whenever I ate it, so that was the main reason for avoiding it. I recently discovered it doesn’t seem to bother my stomach like I thought. When you […]

Happy Friday! Just a quick note about the pancake recipe I posted yesterday. I tried the pancakes this morning using a couple different methods after a reader mentioned the pancakes stuck to the pan after making a couple small substitutions. I went back into the kitchen to see if I could figure out why the […]

Citrus Beet Salad with Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing

IMG_7906

  I’m a recent beet fan, however I can’t say I’ve made much time to cook with them. They just always seem like such a pain in the butt to prepare and cook, don’t they? The peeling, the red stains, the roots, the dirt. Bah. I used to pass them by for easier-to-prepare vegetables, even […]

Tropical Mango, Banana, & Pineapple Kale Salad with Creamy Pineapple Lime Coconut Dressing

IMG_7710

As I type this post, we’re getting a snow storm. It’s so beautiful out, but I can’t help but dream of the summer. I can barely remember what the forest looks like all green and full of life. Right now, it’s stark white and eerily still. I don’t know about you, but I‘ve got a […]

Whole Foods Inspired Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing

IMG_7490

Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]

Dark Chocolate Cherry Walnut Truffles

IMG_7346

I was at Bulk Barn last week to pick up hemp seeds and I left with various red and pink mini cupcake liners, dried cherries, red heart tins, hearts on a stick, and V-Day heart tags. You know, baking “construction materials”. Gag me. I tell ya, I embarrass myself sometimes. Oh, and I forgot the […]

Top 12 Vegan Entrées of 2011

IMG_3732

      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 […]
