5 Inexpensive Cooking Tools You Need in Your Kitchen

  Whipping up recipes from scratch is much easier (and quicker) when you have the right tools to do the job. I love my fancy appliances like my Vitamix, my food processor, my juicer and my food dehydrator, but the truth is you don’t need them to get a delicious meal on the table. All […]

Dairy-Free Turmeric Latte

Dairy-Free Turmeric Latte

Annnnnddddd it’s December. You haven’t heard from me in awhile – since my last recipe post in August – but I come bearing a gift: a caffeine-free + dairy-free turmeric latte. Four months is the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging since I began carving out this little space on the web seven years ago. […]

Gluten-Free All Dressed Tortilla Chips

All-Dressed Tortilla Chips (Gluten-Free)

As a child of the 80s, it has always struck me that I’m part of an age group that straddles the old and the new. My generation remembers what it’s like to use rotary phones and payphones. We recall getting up to change TV channels and writing letters on customized stationary using brightly coloured pens […]

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, I feel strongly about preventing food waste. If you want to get on my bad side, wasting food will do the trick (though I really wish you wouldn’t). Here’s another way you can avoid it: make this broccoli stalk soup. Broccoli is a popular vegetable, and it wasn’t until a few years […]

Headshot: Catherine Farquharson/Documentographer.com Before we go any further, I need to declare that this review of The UnDiet Cookbook is not impartial or objective in any way. As many of you know, I interned with Meghan Telpner nearly four years ago (I actually kicked off my internship on the photo shoot for her first book, […]

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 […]

Curried Veggie Paté

This paté is a delightful combination of sweet and spicy. At first bite you might think, ‘Oh, this is too sweet’, but then you’ll be hit by the savory notes of the curry powder and go, ‘Nah’. Gourmet culinary folks probably think I shouldn’t be calling this paté, since paté is technically a spreadable mixture […]

Neopolitan ‘Ice Cream’ Cake

On Friday, I celebrated Food Revolution Day by throwing a potluck party. I wanted to honour real food and real ingredients, but let’s be honest: it was actually an excuse to make this cake. When you mostly cook for yourself or for one other person, it’s difficult to justify making a dessert that calls for […]

Gluten-Free Lentil Loaf

Lentil Loaf Stuffed with Garlicky Cauliflower Mashed ‘Potatoes’

Some days are perfect for green smoothies and kale salads. Others are meant for heartier fare, like this loaf. It’s like eating meat and potatoes, without the actual meat or potatoes. It’s even perfect for the lazy folk, who don’t even need to expend the effort to scoop more than one forkful – all of […]

New E-Book: Stress-Free Eating

Take it easy. Relax. Don’t worry about it. Chill out. Loosen up. We’ve all heard these phrases before when we’re feeling stressed or anxious; however, the ability to unwind is easier said than done. If you’ve got stress in your life, you’re definitely not alone. In Canada, where I live, nearly one in four Canadians […]
