Vegan Matzoh Balls

First off, let’s establish right away that I am – and always have been a “sinkers” girl. Chewy, dense, sink-to-the-bottom-of-the-bowl matzoh balls have always been my jam. I’m not even sure I know how to make a “floater” matzoh ball. (Okay, I probably do, but we won’t dwell on that.) They aren’t true matzoh balls …

Flourless Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I live in a house with self-proclaimed cookie monsters. Seriously, nothing brings them to attention faster than the promise of a cookie, and if it’s homemade, even better! It’s a dynamic that works well. I love baking cookies; they love eating them! The other day I found myself with some very ripe bananas to use …

Spring Tempeh “Chicken” Salad

Last week we had a brief glimpse of spring, and it put me in the mood for all kinds of light, airy, spring-like dishes. While I’ll always be a comfort food kind of girl, the thought of light salads and sandwiches, and easy on-the-go meals is calling to me. So are those lighter, summer jeans …

Caramelized Kale, Onion & Cheddar Scones

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 …

Creamy Chick’n Lasagna Soup

I love recipes that turn a classic dish on its side.  Lately I’ve been seeing an abundance of posts on Instagram about “Lasagna Soup”, and I’ve been intrigued.  But, I have and entire family of non-tomato sauce loving people (well, okay, one of them loves tomato but the feeling isn’t reciprocal.  The smallest two, however, …

Homestyle Chick’n Pot Pie

I’m a comfort food gal. Food that warms my body and soul is always at the top of my list.  Not that I don’t love salads (and goodness knows I NEED to eat more salad!) but, when I think about family and friends and breaking bread, I think of comforting dishes that are easy to …

Roasted Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

I’m eating this soup for breakfast today.  I’m not kidding.   It’s Monday, and it’s raining. (Welcome to November in Toronto), and I spent my early morning running the kids to school, grocery shopping, and hauling out garbage bins under a blustery mist of rain, and I’m chilled to the bone.   While I waited for my tea …

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 …

Quick and Easy Asian Chicken Noodle Soup

When I was a (really little) kid, there was this restaurant my Dad used to take me to downtown (on McCaul Street in the Village by the Grange, for those who know the area).  It was called Ginsburg and Wong, and it was my first introduction to ‘fusion’ food. Well, not so much fusion in …
