Raw Almond Butter Cups

Rawalmondbuttercupsvegan-7350

I just realized that I’ve turned on my oven maybe once in the past week. What a glorious thing. What could be worthy of turning on the oven during a heat wave, you might ask? Two words: sweet potatoes! Yes, even in the summer, heat wave be damned, I need my sweet potato fix. This […]

The ingredients list appeared to be vegan (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Grape Juice Concentrate, Pectin, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Colors Added […]

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars-8721

Magical Coconut Bars were always one of my favourite dessert squares growing up, next to Nanaimo bars. In my younger mind, the sweeter the dessert, the better. The words “too sweet” just weren’t in my vocabulary back then.   Fortunately, for my body (and cavity-prone teeth) I outgrew this mindset, embracing lighter, slightly earthier versions of […]

Vegan & Gluten-Free Florentines (almond lace cookies)

vegan florentine cookies lace-8499

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for almost a full year. How does that even happen? The truth is, I made these cookies on January 1st 2012 (I know, what killer timing to make cookies), but I figured posting a cookie recipe on the first day of the year was akin to posting a salad […]

Crispy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies-8400

So begins the time of the year when it’s totally acceptable to have a freezer bursting with cookies. There’s always something on hand for unexpected guests, not to mention evening nibbles while cozied up in front of the TV, which we’ve been kinda glued to lately (oops). My friends and family are about to be […]

PEP cool mint patties were one of my favourite candy bars growing up. Oh, and Junior Mints. And York Peppermint Patties! Gah. And Wonderbars, but that’s another story.

Here’s a fun summer square that highlights two of my favourite foods – summer cherries and almonds! I don’t know what it is, but I just love the combination of almonds and cherries. Add a touch of almond extract and it puts me over the edge in bliss. I adapted my Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies […]

Happy Trails Adventure Cookies

IMG_1170

Last week was the week of the granola bar in my kitchen. It was also, unfortunately, the week of sticky fingers, sticky cupboards, sticky floors, sticky handles, and sticky clothing. Actually, it still is. I should do something about that.. I’ve been testing oodles of baked and no-bake granola bars for the cookbook, working hard […]

IMG_0287

It’s no secret that I am a huge cookie dough fan. As a child, I loved nothing more than eating cookie dough straight from the bowl. My best friend Allison and I used to buy those pre-made Pillsbury cookie dough packages and split the package for a snack. Totally normal. If you asked me what […]
