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 […]

Gluten-Free Grains

Get Your Guide to Gluten-Free Grains

A decade ago, if you asked me to name all the grains I could think of, I would’ve capped out at four: wheat, rice, oats and rye. Today, my pantry is home to grains that number in the double digits and I’m always eager to try to latest and trendiest gluten-free grain. New gluten-free eaters often gravitate […]

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 […]

This ain’t nutella. It’s not even close – for a delicious version that is, check out this decadent chocolate spread (and it’s nut-free to boot!).

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.

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 […]

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 […]
