Seeing the Positive in a Negative Situation

IMG_72632

If there’s one thing that unites us all, it’s that we all suffer. We all triumph. We face obstacles in our lives and encounter things that throw us off our course and challenge our inner strength. That’s life, with the lesson often seen in retrospect. Without the difficult times, there would be no great times. […]

Have you ever been at a point in your life when you feel a creeping urgency to do stuff? Important stuff. Fun stuff. I’m not dead yet stuff. I’m not getting any younger stuff. Life Crisis stuff. I need to stop watching Fall TV and get off my butt stuff. Eric and I came to […]

IMG_3387

I know, I know quit it with the pumpkin recipes already! It’s inadvertently turned into Pumpkin Week. I promise to lay off pumpkin after this. Wait, no I don’t. Who do you think I am here? I can’t make any promises when it comes to pumpkin. I can only promise that I fell in love […]

Vegan Pumpkin Mac ‘n Cheeze Sauce

IMG_3331

Yesterday’s joke has actually turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy; I’ve been eating pumpkin non-stop all week. And I can’t seem to stop. Maybe there is some truth to my Long Weekend Hangover theory after all. Pumpkin does make everything better. Oh, and I have a great Pumpkin chia pudding recipe coming up. It might be […]

Pumpkin Gingerbread Smoothie

IMG_3310

A Long Weekend Hangover (LWH): describes the sum of unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following a holiday long weekend, such as Thanksgiving. The LWH is especially hard to recover from if you were drinking red wine like juice, eating Pumpkin Pie Brownies like vegetables, and singing Moves Like Jagger 14 times during a 3 hour […]

Thanksgiving 2011

IMG_3160

This was one of those rare Thanksgivings with picture perfect, summer-like weather. If I could bottle up any type of weather and have it year round it would have been this weekend’s: 25-26C, low humidity, blue skies, and gorgeous Fall colours. I could do 365 days of this, thankyouverymuch. The only thing that could have […]

Last Minute Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

20101002IMG_4115_thumb

If you’re like me, you tend to leave some things to the last minute. My dreaded tasks include: Getting the oil in my car changed. I loathe going to the car shop. It’s one of my all-time least enjoyed errands. Renewing my passport. My passport has been expired for a few months now and I’ve […]

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 […]

The Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie That Never Was

IMG_2268

You know, I think Pumpkin Pies are totally overrated. Pumpkin, sugar, and a buttery crust? Meh. Over it. Pumpkin Pie is so 1651. But clearly you wouldn’t believe such a tall tale. You know me better than that…don’t you. You know the truth is that I desperately wanted to make a vegan and soy-free pumpkin […]

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 […]
