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 […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free Sorghum Salad with Tahini Dressing

Gluten-Free Sorghum ‘Couscous’ with Tahini Dressing

I often feel baffled about what to bring to potlucks. What will be pleasing to most palates? What is easy to transport? What can I have as a satisfying main dish if there is nothing else at the potluck I can eat? Is my dish too weird or healthy? Not to mention the pressure I […]

Stuffed Shells with Dairy-Free Cream Sauce

Stuffed Shells with Dairy-Free Cauliflower Cream Sauce

Have you ever been lured by a bright, alluring or unusual ingredient at the grocery store? You know, like a gleaming cascade of blood-red cherries, a trendy bag of coconut flour, or a knobbly lump of celery root? As a food blogger, this is something that happens to me quite regularly. Look – it’s a […]

Vegan Egg-Free Tofu Scramble

Greek-Style Smoked Tofu Scramble

My last post for Food Bloggers of Canada shared my favourite ways to create egg-free brunches. Then I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a new recipe for an awesome vegan breakfast. This is one of those recipes that was simply meant to be. In the eggless brunch article, I tossed out the idea […]

How to Eat Healthfully When You Can’t Cook

The life of a klutz is a tough burden to bear. Sure, pratfalls and belly flops are funny to watch on TV or in the movies – but in reality? Constant injuries are justifiably un-fun. I move through the world like a baby giraffe learning to walk: gangly, awkward, legs wobbly and akimbo. Yet unlike […]

Vegan Pumpkin Scones

Maple Pumpkin Scones (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

My husband came down with the cold at the end of January. And as many of you know, sometimes it’s hard to keep yourself away from the germs that permeate the house once a family member is infected. My immune system fought valiantly for two weeks, and then I had one of those semi-colds. Is […]

2015 From Scratch Charity Cookbook

From Scratch Cookbook for Charity

It doesn’t escape me that the concept of food blogging might seem wasteful, extravagant or downright silly to those who don’t have enough to eat. Even healthy eating concerns must seem trite to someone with an empty belly: does it matter if that apple is organic or local or non-GMO when you’re scrambling to satisfy […]
