Allergy Info: Low Sugar

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

Allergy Info: Gluten Free Option

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 […]

Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheeze

Allergy Info: Gluten Free Option, Nut Free Option

IMG_2422

Over the past couple years, I’ve made many different vegan cheeze sauce recipes. The initial ones weren’t what I would consider spectacular, but with trial and error I’ve made recipes that not only satisfy my cravings, but make me crave the new recipes instead of actually craving cheese itself. As a former cheese addict, this […]

Chocolate Pumpkin Butter & Naked Apple Butter

IMG_2291

I can’t stop making fruit butter…help! This time, I adapted my go-to pumpkin butter recipe and added cocoa powder and pure maple syrup to create a lovely chocolate flavour. It’s a fun change if you are getting bored of plain pumpkin butter (not that that would ever happen). ;) Silky & smooth pumpkin butter with […]

Meet MONSTER kale…just in time for Halloween… Flashback to May 2011: Madness. The peppers continue to grow even despite this cool and rainy weather! As well as […]

My Journey to Naturopathy: Part 1

IMG_2343

My first visit with the Naturopath Doctor was exciting. In a 1-hour consultation, I felt like we made more progress with my health issues than the past few years with my regular family physician. My regular family physician tends to dismiss everything I tell him and I feel like I’ve had no resolve for any […]
