3-Ingredient Cookies - Salted Dark Chocolate Sunbutter

Salted Dark Chocolate Sunbutter 3-Ingredient Cookies

You’ve probably seen recipes for 3-ingredient cookies floating around the internet. I even posted one many years ago, back in the days when I ate eggs and white sugar and peanut butter like it was going out of style. It’s a simple recipe: equal parts sugar and nut butter plus one egg. And you know what I […]

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Mixed Berry Coconut Ice Cream

Way back in January, when I decided to eliminate sugar for a month, I bought a 2-kilogram bag of mixed berries. I thought, ‘Berries are naturally sweet. I’ll have more smoothies!’ You know what dampens the desire for smoothies? Freezing temperatures, snow and ice, and then rain until the end of May. And so, those berries […]

Edamame + Roasted Garlic Dip

Edamame + Roasted Garlic Spread

I’m reluctant to complain about the weather, but I’m going to do it anyway. After the icy winter we had here in Vancouver where the sidewalks and roads were literal skating rinks (but not fun ones – they were dangerous!), I promised I would never gripe about rain. Of course, if you consider weather conversations meaningless […]

Pumpkin Kale Scones

Savory Pumpkin, Kale and Almond Scones (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

It could be said that I have unusual tastes when it comes to food. In fact, it has been said. I don’t mean I’m the type of person who eats adventurously, like the people who will eat intestines and fried grasshoppers. I’m way too much of a scaredy-cat for that. But I am the gal […]

Quinoa + Lentil Breakfast Hash

Do I have to tell you I’m a fan of savory breakfasts? Cause I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned it oh, only a few times – and you’re probably sick of hearing it. Sometimes people tell you stuff over and over and you’ve just got to smile and nod. Like when my Grandma used to tell me every […]

Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins with Butternut Squash

In January, I eliminated sugar for the month – even natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey and coconut sugar. The combination of too much dark chocolate and umpteen impromptu baking sessions on weekday afternoons left me feeling like sugar had become more of a habit than a treat. So, my month of sugar-living began on January […]

Turmeric Rice with Raisins

Golden Turmeric Rice with Raisins

Why is it that everyone loves grapes, but hates raisins? Think about it. I’ve never seen a plump red grape languishing on a fruit platter, and the wine industry is certainly thriving. But if a raisin-hater mistakes a raisin for a chocolate chip in a baked good? This happens: It might not surprise you to learn […]
