baked spicy korean “fried chicken”

Somehow I fell down a ‘mukbang‘ rabbit hole on Instagram the other night. (If you’re not familiar, it’s a social media thing where people eat vast quantities of food in front of a camera and share it to YouTube, TikTok and Instagram.) Sometimes it has an ASMR component to it, and sometimes it’s just for …

High School cafeteria chocolate chip cookies

There really isn’t a lot I’d like to bring back from my high school years. I’m quite content to leave my “Tease it to Jesus” 80s hair and mouthful of braces as nothing more than a fond memory. But the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies from the school cafeteria are another story. Warm, gooey, “make-your-gums-tingle-from-all-the-sugar” cookies …

Baked gingerbread donuts with cinnamon glaze

I’m lucky to live in a city that has a huge and vibrant vegan scene. Toronto is full of restaurants that cater to vegan and vegetarian lifestyles, and we have many vegan-only or extremely vegan-friendly grocery stores, which makes it really easy to maintain a plant-based diet. We are also very lucky to be home …

Double Chocolate & Peanut Butter Streusel muffins

Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit by calling these “muffins”. The crumb is so light and soft and chocolatey, that it’s really hard to tell it apart from a chocolate cupcake. But in the absence of frosting (and the appearance of streusel, which is definitely a “muffin thing”), we’ll go ahead and call these muffins. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
