Last Minute Protein Energy Bars & Creamy Holly Nog Smoothie

IMG_4728

It’s the day after the American Thanksgiving and I’m sure the last thing anyone wants is an energy bar. However, it’s also Black Friday in the US and I figured maybe you could use some energy after all! There is very little that could pull me out of bed at midnight to enter long, cold […]

Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe

IMG_4410

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 […]

Mushroom Millet Soup with Cheezy Garlic Bread

IMG_4015

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 […]

Pumpkin Maple Baked Bean Cornbread Casserole

IMG_2692

I always say the best recipes follow the worst disasters. And that’s just what happened yesterday. Because if one more thing went wrong, I was debating putting up a ‘Closed, please come again’ sign on the blog all Thanksgiving weekend. The first step was admitting that I’m all baked out at the moment, which probably […]

Red Lentil and Squash Curry Stew

IMG_2628

Leftovers are the best. A “free”, delicious meal without the work? I’ll take it. Unless of course you don’t know what to do with the leftovers and they die a slow death in the fridge. One day you walk into the kitchen gasping, “What IS that smell!?” only to open the fridge and find those […]

Make-Ahead Steel Cut Oatmeal & 4 New Oatmeal Recipes

IMG_2128

You wouldn’t know it from the plethora of steel-cut oatmeal recipes I have on the blog (one), but steel-cut oats are actually my favourite way to enjoy oatmeal. The only problem is I’m usually too hungry to wait 30 minutes to eat breakfast. Hence, my obsession with quick breakfasts like Vegan overnight oats, Green Monsters, […]

Gazpacho

IMG_5959

I went 27 years of my life never making Gazpacho and in the past 2 weeks I’ve made it 3 times.  I blame hot yoga and my crazy water cravings. ;) “Gazpacho is a cold Spanish tomato-based raw vegetable soup, originating in the southern region of Andalusia. Gazpacho is widely consumed throughout Spain, neighboring Portugal […]

Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf with Sweet Potato

IMG_4015

Despite what you may think, living with a food blogger is not always peachy! Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong. Despite all of this, Eric’s biggest complaint is that I rarely make the […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m very happy to announce that we raised $7,234 dollars (and climbing!) for the Japan Disaster Fundraiser!! I am absolutely blown away and touched by your generosity. I never dreamed that this much money was possible in just over a day’s time. This money is going to help many in need! […]

Spelt Berry Porridge with Granola, Dates, and Raspberries

IMG_2434

Last year, I had my first cooking attempt with wheat berries when I made the Back on Track Wheat Berry Salad. I fell head over heels. (That is one of my favourite salads by the way!) Wheat berries are chewy, versatile, and they pack a great nutritional punch. And then I discovered spelt berries. I […]
