There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t make myself a cup of tea. I’m always trying out new brands and flavours, on a quest to find my perfect tea. My go-to tea has been Japanese Sencha loose leaf for years, but I like to spice things up once and a while. I […]

Tropical Raspberry Lime Zinger

IMG_1666

Every morning for breakfast while in Calgary, I made my favourite hot oatmeal for Diane and I. It was so chilly and rainy during our stay, the only thing on my mind was something hot. I had no desire for anything cold like vegan overnight oats or Green Monsters (except for the amazing peanut butter […]

Easy Overnight Buckwheat Parfait

IMG_0790

All of these warm spring mornings have brought back my cravings for no-cook parfaits. Parfaits are one of my favourite summer foods because they are virtually effortless, don’t require a stove, and are different every time I make them. Lately, I’ve been enjoying this breakfast quite a bit and it only dawned on me recently […]

Layered Raw Taco Salad for Two

IMG_0645

If you ever find yourself in a salad rut, this raw taco salad is a great way to break out of it. Hearty and flavourful, every bite is a fiesta in your mouth. It’s a bit (ok, a lot) different from the taco salad of my youth, but certainly no less tasty! My inspiration comes […]

IMG_0494

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]

IMG_0175

Since I made my chocolate avocado tortes (see no bake version and cooked crust version), they quickly became a favourite warm weather dessert – cold, decadent, and also two of the 21 most popular dessert recipes on the blog in 2011.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Scratch!

IMG_9938

Just in the nick of time, I ended up thinking of a few things to make for my get together on Saturday. I worked hard all afternoon and of course made a complete disaster of the place. Is it ever possible not to make a disaster just before hosting a party? Don’t think so. Not […]

Crazy Woman Chocolate Blender Pudding

IMG_9820

This 60-second recipe happened as a result of a major chocolate craving over the weekend. If PMS is good for one thing and one thing only it’s for inspiring many of my favourite recipes. This weekend, I was craving this secret-ingredient chocolate pudding like a crazy woman, but I didn’t have a couple of the […]

Spring Salad with Strawberry Lemon Basil Dressing

IMG_9518

  As May approaches and spring is in full force, I’m finding excuses to walk everywhere, lugging my camera in tote. I have a blister and sore right shoulder to prove it! Tulips, daffodils, and cherry blossoms are in bloom, tiny green leaves sprout, I’m sneezing like crazy, and our car is a lovely shade […]

Mini Peanut Butter Cups in a Jar

IMG_8867

Last week on Twitter, I asked you guys if you’d rather see a main course or dessert recipe for the upcoming Easter holiday. Of course, many of you vegan goblins said you wanted BOTH! I like the way you think. Actually, the majority vote was for the main course recipe, easily by a 80/20 split. […]
