Gluten-free and vegan granola

Choose Your Own Adventure Gluten-Free Granola

One of the biggest challenges for Type-A personalities is accepting there are some (many?) things in life that we can’t control. We can’t prevent the morning traffic jam. We can’t manipulate other people’s habits and behaviours. We can’t direct the weather to be sunny and warm when we want it to be. We can’t regulate […]

Butternut Squash Breakfast Congee

Slow Cooker Squash Breakfast Congee

You never forget your first time…eating congee. Well, at least I didn’t. The story of my introduction to congee was certainly memorable, and like some first times of the naked variety, it did include a penis – that amusing anecdote can be found over here. Congee has always been one of my go-to comfort foods when I […]

Gluten-free Dukkah Flatbread

Dukkah-Spiced Flatbread and a Giveaway

My first introduction to dukkah was at a local restaurant and had the consistency of a paste, rather than the traditional dry blend of nuts and spices. I loved it so much I created my own version at home. Which I also loved. And have never made it since. Blame it on writing a food […]

Dairy-free Smoothie

Awesome Dairy-Free Smoothie Tips

Summer’s almost over and I hope you’re not sad. I’m never bummed about the curtains closing on the summertime season. I was always a big nerd and loved the whole back-to-school vibe, and now as a grown-up I love fall because it involves the best food: butternut squash, pumpkin, apples, pears, cinnamon, onions, garlic, Brussels sprouts, […]

Dairy-Free Healthy Blizzard

Ice Cream Friday: Sunbutter Cup Blizzards

Have you ever made peanut (or almond) butter cups at home? It’s a simple treat, but a time-consuming one: Melt chocolate. Swirl in mini muffin liners. Chill. Melt nut butter and sugar. Spoon into liners. Chill. Melt chocolate again. Pour over the top of the nut butter. Chill for the last time. Then I saw […]

Ice Cream Friday: Around the Web

Soooo this Friday’s dairy-free ice cream attempt was a big fat flop. The theme of the week was ‘breakfast ice cream’, where I hopped on the banana ice cream train and tossed in a few superfoods like hemp and cacao for a healthy morning treat. It basically came out like this smoothie. Don’t get me […]

Mocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Mocha Almond Fudge

I am genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed this recipe for two reasons: I hate coffee I hate anything that tastes like coffee And yet, here I am, grasping spoonfuls of mocha almond fudge as if it were my last day on earth. I declare this the best dairy-free ice cream I’ve made so […]

Sea Salt and Honey Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Sea Salt and Honey

Every week I say to myself, “This Ice Cream Friday I should make a sorbet.” And then I never do. Part of the reason is I’m not a fan of fruity desserts and will always choose the gooey, chocolatey, caramel-ish options over crumbles, sorbets or fruit-stuffed pies. But mainly the reason is when summertime fruits […]

Vegan Mint Chip Sandwiches

Ice Cream Friday: Mini Mint Chocolate Chip Sandwiches

It’s been unseasonably hot in Vancouver this summer – in fact, so damn hot we’re under water restrictions and there is yellowish-brown crispy grass everywhere you look. Shortly before the water restrictions began, we watched a wonderful movie called Young Ones – check it out if you get the chance – about a futuristic time […]
