Red Pepper & Smoked Gouda Bisque

It’s May…the middle of May to be exact, and it’s cold outside. Like October or early November cold. It seems Mother Nature is a bit confused these days. We’re done with winter. We’re done with fall. We’re done with rain and cold and wind and grey skies. But yet that has been our weather forecast …

Vegan Easter Creme Eggs

Is there anything more iconically “Easter” than a creme egg? I have had a love-affair with them ever since I was a little kid. Back then, they were only available at Easter so they were highly coveted and savoured. I would look forward to getting to eat a few of them every April…until my first …

Vegan Matzoh Ball Soup

Ahh, matzoh ball soup. Bubbie’s specialty, and guaranteed to cure what ails you. It’s the Jewish form of penicillin. Got a cold? Upset stomach? Sad about something? Bubbie’s on her way over with soup. For many, it’s a Friday night Shabbat staple. For others, it’s regular comfort food oncold winter nights, or in the middle …

Garlicky Spinach & Bacon Dip

This is THE spinach dip you need in your life.  Game day, girls night, holidays, Tuesdays…any reason is good enough to make this dip. It is the most spectacular dip.  Creamy and crunchy, salty, savory, and yet slightly sweet. It hits all the notes. But don’t just take my word for it, I shared it …

The Ultimate Tofu Scramble

Let’s be honest here, eggs are a hard thing to replace. And whenever I’m asked “what’s the thing you miss most now that you’re vegan?”, my answer is almost always eggs. They were always an easy go-to dish, and incredibly versatile.  But, knowing what I do about them, I prefer to let them be chicks, and …

Pumpkin Spice Cereal Bar Treats

Happy first day of Autumn! I’m celebrating it with a sick kiddo this weekend. So, to cheer her up, we decided to play around with these new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and make a new cereal bar treat! Regular Cheerios are a go-to cereal in our house. They are vegan (obviously), low in sugar, and fun …

No Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

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.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

School mornings…they are just around the corner now.  And if they are anything like my house,  they involve a lot of rushing around  trying to get everyone out the door and on the school bus/dropped off at school on time, while searching for lost shoes, misplaced homework, the pink-with-purple-sparkles-and-a-unicorn hair clip that MUST be worn …

One Pot Garlic Butter Pasta

We are in the dog days of August, where the air is so thick and humid you can cut it with a knife, and the mere thought of turning on kitchen appliances makes you break out into even more of a sweat, but yet somehow, that wasn’t enough of a deterrent for this carb-loving mama …
