Vegan Dulce de Leche

Ice Cream Friday: Vegan Dulce de Leche

I am a firm believer that cooking food from scratch is far less expensive than eating out or buying prepackaged foods. In my e-book Healthy Eating on a Budget, one of my top recommendations to save money is preparing meals at home. But the exception to that rule? Homemade vegan dulce de leche ice cream. […]

Vegan Matcha Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Dairy-Free Matcha Chip

I decided there aren’t enough dairy-free ice cream recipes on this blog, so I’m going to remedy that by instituting ‘Ice Cream Fridays’. ‘Cause everyone loves ice cream on the weekend. This means I’m gonna burn through a whole lot of coconut milk and maple syrup, but I’m totally okay with that. I usually lean […]

Vegan Salted Chocolate Chia Pudding

Dairy-Free Salted Chocolate Chia Pudding

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!? In the last year I have mutated from a sweet ‘n salty hater into a salt shaker fiend who happily scarfs salted caramel ice cream and devours chocolate bars with sea salt. Is this what happens when you’re a grownup in your mid-30s – you suddenly begin eating salty chocolate? […]

Gluten-free and vegan coconut macaroons

Passover Lemon Coconut Macaroons (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

If you’re Jewish and grew up in Toronto, it’s very likely you had grandparents who flew or drove down to Florida for the winter. My mother’s parents bopped around a few rented apartments before purchasing their own condo in Lake Worth. It’s been nearly 15 years since I’ve been there, so my recollection is a […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Ramen in a Mason Jar

Gluten-Free Ramen in a Mason Jar

Mason jar salads have become immensely popular and I think they’re a fantastic idea. And yet I’ve never made one because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a fan of raw salads –  and no adorable mason jar is going to change that. Then a few weeks ago, a friend posted this recipe for travelling […]

How to Make Dairy-Free Chocolate

There is a lot to love about chocolate. To state the obvious, it tastes incredible and euphoric. The culinary equivalent of being rowed down a warm, breezy river at sunset by Ryan Gosling, if you will. Chocolate has a load of health benefits, too. It helps us relax, reduces inflammation, combats free radicals, improves our […]

Slow Cooker Vegan Split Pea Soup

Three-Ingredient Vegan Split Pea Soup

This easy vegan recipe came to be for two very important reasons. One, I was down to my last few scraps of produce in the fridge. And two, I wanted to create a recipe that our dog Daisy could also enjoy. You see, I’ve been trying to get her to eat more vegetables. Most dog […]

Gluten-Free, Vegan Avocado Toast

Simple Avocado Toast + A Vegan Omega-3 Giveaway

Writing a food blog pushes me to innovate and create, because I’m a creature of habit. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not the meticulous kind of gal who eats the exact same things over and over, like your ‘ol Gramps who begins the day with a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of prunes. I […]

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One-pot pasta dishes made a splash in the food world last year, thanks to Martha Stewart. I repeatedly heard from many bloggers and friends that one-pot pasta could not be done with gluten-free pasta because it would become a thick, gluey mess. I never thought to question this, likely a product of my agreeable, conciliatory […]

Roasted Beet Hummus

Beet-mus (Roasted Beet Hummus)

Well, well, well. Doesn’t this look festive? I strongly suggest you invite roasted beet hummus, or beet-mus as I like to call it, to show its pretty face at your holiday table. Can you schmear it on Brussels sprouts and turkey? No, not so much. But it does make an excellent healthy, allergen-friendly appetizer when […]
