Homemade Mocha Nutella (Vegan, Refined-Sugar Free)

homemade nutella vegan rawtella-8250

When I have great ambitions to re-create a favourite food product at home, it usually takes the right moment of inspiration to push me along. Or, it simply takes remembering to snap the photos before the husband and I eat the entire batch (such was the case with my vegan cookie recreation from Zephyr Café…doh). […]

Lightened Up Raw Pecan Pumpkin Butter

I was recently asked in an interview how veganism has changed my life. Normally, questions like this bring out the best (worst?) of my indecisive nature, but this answer came to me quite easily. Veganism has changed my life in countless ways, but the one that stands out is how my love for animals has […]

Before we left for our trip, I found myself with a couple pints of blueberries and a few spotted bananas to use up. I’ve been meaning to make my strawberry chia seed jam for a while now, so I ended up adapting my recipe using blueberries, all-natural sweetener, and a touch of vanilla. It turned […]

Last June, my blog buddy Ashley came for a visit! It was our first time meeting ‘in real life’. I was nervous and basically had hot flashes anticipating her arrival.

I’ve always loved teaching. When I was a young girl, I used to play school with my stuffed animals and any friends that I could trick into being a student in my class. I made an Attendance List (the students didn’t always show up on time!) and I taught math, writing, art, and deep life […]

Slow Cooker Naked Apple Butter

Last year, I dusted off my slow cooker and made my first batch of apple butter. While it tasted incredible, I realized (after the fact) that I cooked the apples way too long. I was left with a mere cup of apple butter from 5 pounds of apples. That sure was some thick, concentrated apple […]

Sugar-Free Apple Pie Chia Seed Jam + Breakfast Parfait

This is the sort of recipe that takes away all the end of summer blues, at least temporarily. I recently discovered that I can make chia seed jam without the need for any sweetener at all. A natural, no added sugar jam recipe? Yes, it’s totally possible! My little secret? Apples. They are perfectly sweet […]
