IMG_7490

Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]

What To Do With Leftover Pie: Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole

IMG_4759

If you’re like my family, you probably have some leftover pie after a big holiday meal. Or maybe you don’t because Uncle Joe got up at 2am, cleared the place out, and then blamed it on Scruffy! Poor Scruffy. The next morning, no one really has the nerve to make the first move on the […]

Warm + Roasted Winter Salad Bowl

This salad is a good example of how I love my salads in the winter – warm, hearty, and bursting with nutrition. Like a big hug. I have no desire to eat a cold salad right now (unless it’s this one, I suppose). It’s light, but still has that “stick to your ribs” quality I […]

Being a gardener in August is a wonderful thing. Even for a Former Black Thumb! [Can I call myself a Former Black Thumb if I still kill indoor plants? I guess that is debatable…] I now have enough organic kale to supply Whole Foods. ;) The sweetest tomatoes I’ve tasted! We’ve been enjoying toasted tomato […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie, Three Ways: Classic, Rustic, & Gluten-Free

IMG_3764_thumb1

  Making a pie from scratch has to be one of the most feared tasks of all time. I would say it ranks right up there with bread baking, public speaking, and drinking something green. I always had this expectation that everything had to go perfectly for the pie to turn out. If my dough […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crust

pumpkinpiesquaresvegan-2816

After my last post, I knew I was destined to make a dessert using my gluten-free graham crackers. It’s just the right thing to do. Plus, a girl can only eat so many graham crackers for breakfast! You can imagine how nervous I felt testing this recipe – not knowing if it would turn out […]

Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf with Sweet Potato

IMG_4015

Despite what you may think, living with a food blogger is not always peachy! Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong. Despite all of this, Eric’s biggest complaint is that I rarely make the […]

Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe

IMG_4410

One of my frequently asked questions around this time of the year is always, “What vegan recipes can I make for my upcoming holiday meals that will impress the skeptics?” Eating vegetarian, vegan, or other special diet can be challenging, especially around the holidays. It doesn’t help matters when “Uncle Joe” is ranting and raving […]

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something." ~Neil Gaiman I shared this quote in […]
