Poppyseed Cookies (Mun Kichel)

Poppyseed Cookies (Mun Kichel)

My great Aunt Mollie was a saint. Loving, generous, kind-hearted, with an endless supply of patience that was much-needed on our side of the family. Every time she’d come to visit us, she’d haul along tins of mandelbrot (Jewish biscotti), pinwheel cookies and mun cookies. I always thought they were called ‘moon cookies’ because they […]

10 Vegan Cheese Recipes That Are Amazingly Cheese-Like

Whenever I ask readers what dairy product they miss the most, the answer is always cheese. What power does cheese hold over us? It’s been a long time since I’ve had real dairy cheese, but I recall feeling pulled by its tangy, salty taste and gooey texture. For many years, cheese was the food I […]

Blueberry Compote + Tips for Stewing Fruit

Blueberry Compote + Tips For Stewing Fruit

I haven’t posted a new recipe in over two months but I have a good reason: it’s tough to blog about food when you’re not eating very much of it. I’ve mainly been subsisting on broth, green juice, soup, dairy-free elixirs, low-fibre smoothies and stewed fruit like this recipe for blueberry compote. The reason? Another bowel […]

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 […]

Savory Baked Breakfast Oatmeal Cups

Savory Baked Breakfast Oatmeal Cups

This is a sponsored post by Bob’s Red Mill, which means I was compensated for my time to develop this recipe. I vet products carefully to ensure they align with my nutritional values, and only feature brands I genuinely use and enjoy. I was thrilled when Bob’s Red Mill approached me, as my gluten-free pantry was […]

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

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 […]
