3-Layer Almond Coconut Chocolate Bars

veganchocolatebar-2155

I may not have my costume picked out or a pumpkin carved yet (how the heck is it Oct 24th?), but the vegan candy options are a-go. That is, if they last until the weekend. I’ve been working on these layer bars for a few weeks now. It took a bit of patience to get […]

No Bake Elvis Bars

veganelvisbars-9939a

When I wrote this post yesterday afternoon I was sitting at my desk with a mini fan blasting ten inches from my face. My wrist rested on a frozen gel-pack and my hair was a lovely style of poof. Please remind me not to bother blow drying my hair when it’s this humid out. We […]

The Big Salad

If I owned a restaurant one of my main priorities would be to ban wimpy salads from the menu. It would be a Big Salad Only Zone enforced with salads the size of my head! *insert evil cackle* Salads that dreams are made of. We’ve all been presented with that sad restaurant salad garnished a […]

Quick ‘n Easy No-Bake Protein Bars

veganproteinbars-8865

Granola bars have to be one of my favourite things to make. I’ve had a soft spot for them since running the bakery. I look back to those days with (mostly) warm, fuzzy memories. Maybe making + shipping 500 bars a week by hand wasn’t ideal, but it was the experience that I enjoyed the […]

Irresistible Chewy Trail Mix Cookies (Vegan + Gluten-free)

vegantrailmixcookies-8631

Welcome to my dream cookie. Ram packed with healthy ingredients, chewy, crispy around the edges, thick and hearty, with dark chocolate sprinkled throughout. Not one who is content with a mediocre cookie, I tested these 4 times before they were deemed “in the vault”. That’s a lot of cookie eating! It’s a tough job I […]

My Favourite Lunch of the Moment: Easy Flaked Almond “Tuna” Salad

almondtunabites-8486

This summer marks my fourth year since I started experimenting with vegan recipe development. In what feels like the blink of an eye, I’ve shared over 400 recipes (and many more photos) with you on this blog. When I started out I didn’t know how to cook a simple potato or chop an onion. Seriously. […]

Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie with Toasted Almond Crust and Strawberry Vanilla Compote

veganrecipes-6857

Lately, I’ve been reflecting on lessons that I’ve learned since changing my career path and branching out on my own 4 and 1/2 years ago. Trying to pursue a new field in which I had no prior experience and grow a business feels like a rollercoaster most of the time. There are many ups and […]

2-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Frosting

veganchocolatefudgefrosting-4836

This frosting is quite possibly one of the best to come out of my kitchen. It’s dangerous in the best way possible – creamy and rich without being overly sweet. I really don’t know how I was able to save enough for the chocolate cupcakes. Best of all, it’s just two simple ingredients: Full-fat coconut […]

Banana Bread Protein Bars

vegangranolabars-3678

Whenever my heart feels heavy, lost, or confused I tend to turn to the kitchen to distract myself. Seeking comfort in food isn’t as bad as those ridiculous diet magazines make it out to be. Food can bring us all together and make us pause to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Sometimes, a big […]

Hasselback Potatoes and Hasselback Apples –The Show Down

hasselback apple-7484

Once upon a time there was a girl who liked to eat. This girl loves potatoes, especially Hasselback potatoes. One day last fall, she got an idea to make Hasselback baked apples. She had a feeling this would be the Greatest Dessert She’d Ever Made. So she grabbed a couple apples, sharpened her knives, and […]
