Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with a Twist


Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]


No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream Torte


Since I made my chocolate avocado tortes (see no bake version and cooked crust version), they quickly became a favourite warm weather dessert – cold, decadent, and also two of the 21 most popular dessert recipes on the blog in 2011. The avocado is masked by the chocolate and creates a cream-like texture, richness, and […]


Spring Salad with Strawberry Lemon Basil Dressing


  As May approaches and spring is in full force, I’m finding excuses to walk everywhere, lugging my camera in tote. I have a blister and sore right shoulder to prove it! Tulips, daffodils, and cherry blossoms are in bloom, tiny green leaves sprout, I’m sneezing like crazy, and our car is a lovely shade […]


Citrus Beet Salad with Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing


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 though […]


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


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


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 […]


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) […]


Holiday Salad with Cranberry Apple Orange Vinaigrette


Pop Quiz: Shredded Coconut or snow? Answer: Shredded coconut ……just joking! It’s snow. We had our first dusting of snow today and it made for a nice backdrop for a few photos. The snow also made for a near-death experience while carrying the camera, tripod, plate, and salad dressing across the slippery deck. This may […]


End of Summer Peach Apple Cobbler


Last weekend, I bought my last basket of Ontario peaches from the farmer’s market. From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut. But first, I wanted to make a farewell summer recipe using fresh peaches, a couple of the season’s first apples, and […]
