We may be in the midst of “Summer in November” here in Toronto, but 75F degree temps in Autumn isn’t enough to stop me from making my most favorite fall cookies ever: Snickerdoodles!These cookies have a slightly crispy cinnamon sugar exterior that covers a pillowy soft, rich butter cookie inside which literally melts in your… Continue reading The BEST Snickerdoodles ever!
We woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning – not enough to really stick (it’s all gone now), but enough to remind me that winter is on its way.Of course, as I’m typing this, I’m seeing the weather forecast will hit 60F again by Friday, but it’s just for a day or… Continue reading Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Kale
It’s been quite a week trying to get started with online school.Our school district had a huge spike in students switching from in-person to online classes, and not enough teachers to cover them, so we’ve been in a holding pattern with one child and a delayed start with the other one.So we took this opportunity… Continue reading Mini Pumpkin Spice Muffins
I am hopelessly hooked on these scones. There's a specialty grocer in my city that has their own in-house bakery and they make a vegan kale & onion scone. I'm not down there often, but when I do, I always buy one (or three...let's be real here, I'm a carb junkie if ever there was… Continue reading Caramelized Kale, Onion & Cheddar Scones
With back to school just around the corner, extra curricular activities starting up again, and the general easy-breezy-lazy days of summer fading away, I’m starting to prepare myself for the busy days ahead. Which, if you’re like me, means a whole lot of running (ok, driving) around shuffling little people to and fro, and constant trips to the grocery store, Walmart, etc., all while still trying to manage a career. Morning breakfast rush, school lunches, after-school-on-the-way-to snack – all perfect examples of times where quick, make-ahead, healthy snacks (like these no-bake, low sugar chocolate chip energy bites) are a lifesaver.
I’m a history buff and I have a love for all things vintage – especially when it comes to the kitchen. I’ve been collecting vintage cookbooks and retro kitchenware for years, so it’s no surprise that when I decided to write a dessert cookbook, I packed it full of modernized, plant-based versions of classic retro… Continue reading Busy Day Lemon Cake
Nothing Says fall quite like these Apple Spice muffins. With a streusel-like topping and chunks of apple, they are the perfect treat to cozy up with after a day of apple picking (and a great way to use up some of your bounty!) To give these muffins even more texture, try chopping some walnuts or… Continue reading Apple Spice Muffins
Have you tried my ultimate ranch seasoning yet? It takes just minutes to make and lasts forever. I make a huge jar of it and use it for everything – ranch dips and dressings, as a seasoning for roasted potatoes, and as a popcorn shaker or coating for roasted cashews.It’s delish and made from just 6… Continue reading Vegan Ranch Seasoning and Dip
I had an abundance of red radishes recently and, after roasting a few and pickling a bunch, I needed a creative way to use up the rest of them.Cool, creamy, tangy tzatziki is one of my favorite dips, and I’ve got a wicked dairy-free version in my first cookbook that has fooled many non-vegans into… Continue reading Vegan Radish Tzatziki
I came across a non-vegan version of this recipe in a vintage cookbook and decided I needed it in my life. And being that it's a yeast-free bread, it was right up my alley. (My breadmaking skills leave much to be desired. I have this unfounded fear of working with yeast. Yes, I know...I need… Continue reading Peanut Butter Quick Bread
So... remember that just-like-grandma-made blueberry muffin recipe I shared last week? Turns out they also make the best-ever Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Muffins. Soft and fluffy on the inside with perfectly baked crunchy sugar tops. I always find myself making a double batch of these because they disappear so quickly. Its that crunchy-sugar topping that makes… Continue reading Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Muffins
