Frosted Animal Crackers

0 comments

These are a total trip-down-memory-lane kind of treat. Who didn’t love getting a box of animal crackers as a kid and biting the heads off of lions and tigers and bears? Guaranteed fun…until the box was empty of course. I love recreating childhood favorites and introducing them to my kids. […]

Summer Bean Salad

1 comment

I’m really not sure whether to call this a salad, or a dip, or just the most amazing flavour explosion ever to hit your mouth. It’s kind of all three. Last weekend my cousin Lisa brought this salad to a family BBQ and it was a huge hit. Like we […]

Spicy Peanut (or Pea-not) Ginger Tofu

0 comments

I also like to call this “clean out the fridge tofu”, because its the perfect opportunity to make a fabulous dish using all the leftover veggies loitering around your fridge. This dish is all about the sauce. It’s thick and rich and has the perfect balance of heat, sweet, salty […]

Summer Corn and Onion Fritters

0 comments

When people ask me where I learned to cook (or bake), I always say, “Ina taught me.”  (The Ina referring to Ina Garten – The Barefoot Contessa.) Now of course, this is only partially true; I’ve never really met Ina – although I was lucky enough to see her in […]

Mini Pizza Bites

Food is always more fun when it’s bite-size, right? Teeny-tiny, cute versions of our fave foods always taste better and are so much fun to eat (plus, you can totally eat MORE of them without having to do an extra hour or three of cardio the next day!) Summer is […]

Vegan Egg Salad

0 comments

“So what food do you miss most from your non-vegan days?” I’ve been vegan for close to eight years now, and I legit still get asked this question on almost a weekly basis. And my answer is always, unwaveringly, the same: eggs. I always thought cheese was going to be […]

Sweet Potato “Hummus” Dip

0 comments

So I really want to call this “hummus”, but with a very noticeable lack of chick peas (the traditional ingredient in hummus), it clearly isn’t, so we’re going to stick with Sweet Potato Dip. But make no mistake, it is designed to mimic hummus in every way, from the garlic […]

Red Pepper & Smoked Gouda Bisque

2 comments

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 […]

Vegan Easter Creme Eggs

0 comments

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 […]

Spanish Quinoa and Peppers (GF)

1 comment

So I’m going to start off by saying this isn’t a traditional Passover dish. But I’ve come to learn over the years – especially since adopting a plant-based lifestyle, that traditions aren’t written in stone. They are made by those you share them with, and sharing good dishes (whether time-tested […]
