Vegan Cinnamon Rolls (with make-ahead option!)

Wow, it was not my intention to disappear from the blog for so long! I tell you, this parenting gig isn’t easy. It just swallows me up at times. March and April were a couple of the hardest months we’ve had since becoming parents of two. We were struggling to stay afloat and not sleeping […]

In the Buff Smoothie Bowl

  There’s no turning back: we’ve officially shifted from the sleepy newborn stage into a whole other beast. It was good while it lasted, I have to say. Arlo’s development is steaming ahead, and with that has come his first sleep regression (or “progression”, if we’re seeing the glass half full), and his desire to […]

Power Biscotti from Blissful Basil

“…I’ve finally learned to greet anxiety with gratitude, because it is not my enemy but my teacher. And it’s taught me one of the greatest lessons of all: When faced with a problem, you can choose to avoid it, you can walk around it, and you can pretend that it doesn’t exist, but you will […]

New Mama Glo Bars (lactation-friendly, nut-free)

“I’ve officially polished off my ‘postpartum’ Glo Bar stash.” This is what I wrote on Snapchat early in September to accompany a photo of me gobbling up my last lonely bar from the freezer. I had overestimated my self-control at 9 months pregnant just a tad, thinking I could stock the freezer a month early with […]

Chocolate Raspberry Dreams Breakfast Parfait

Way back in the day, I used to be all about creating breakfast parfaits. Do any of my long-time readers remember the onslaught of breakfast parfait recipes I posted around 2009/2010?

One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan + gf)

Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

All Day Glow Green Smoothie

Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to eat more veggies—which I realize may sound a bit funny coming from someone who eats plant-based—but it’s all too easy to get into ruts, especially when things are busy. It’s just so convenient to grab something from a box sometimes! Pregnancy also makes my food obsessions and […]

Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding Bowls

  With an almost bursting bladder and plenty of nervous anticipation, yesterday I headed off to our anatomy scan ultrasound appointment. I always find I get anxious for pregnancy ultrasounds in general, but this one especially. I felt a knot in my stomach all morning long. It’s a fairly long ultrasound since they check all […]

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 […]

Coconut-Cardamom Vegan Overnight Oat Parfait with Blueberry Chia Seed Jam

Food photography has been sparse in my house these days (Now, if we’re talking baby photography on iPhones, well let’s just say I’m killing it.) Lately, I only have 15-20 minutes for food photoshoots, so I’ve learned to be super quick when it comes to snapping pictures. I used to be militant about using my […]

Super Thick Coconut Yogurt (the shortcut method!)

Hi, my name is Angela and I’m in love with coconut meat. I also like shortcuts, so discovering frozen bags of coconut meat made me a bit giddy… When I first tried coconut meat I wasn’t sure if I liked it, but it totally grew on me. It’s lightly sweet, super filling (it packs 8g […]

Happy Digestion Smoothie

My digestion has been a bit out of whack over the past few months. Actually, I’m feeling a bit out of whack as a whole. Maybe I was naïve, but I really didn’t anticipate the postpartum phase to be so challenging, on many different levels. The pregnancy seems to get the most attention while the […]

Coffee Shop Worthy Caramel Vanilla Bean Hazelnut Milk

Summer is known for having a slower pace, but this season looks like it will be more productivity-seeking than anything.
