Sundried Tomato Cheese Rolls

We all need a go-to easy to throw together appetizer in our arsenal, this is mine at the moment.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

This Pumpkin Spice Bread is an easy quick bread. Healthy and vegan with a little extra sweet on top.   Pumpkin is the thing this week. Apologies if you are done with pumpkin. I'm just getting started. There might have been a latte. That probably started it. And...

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Waffles

Pumpkin pie in a crispy and fluffy waffle - a yummy fall breakfast treat. Tomorrow, while you are eating your Sunday breakfast, I will be running 13.1 miles.  For fun, I suppose, since I am certainly not running to win. While I'm running I will be thinking about how I...

Favourite Peanut and Tomato Soup

This is not a typical tomato soup. Peanut butter adds a creamy and smooth texture to this soup. The flavours here are little on the spicier side, highlighting the its sweetness just perfectly.

Barley with Lemon and Kale

Barley with Lemon and Kale. A hearty whole grain side dish full of greens, with lots of garlic and lemon. Love your whole grains!

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

A quick and easy vegetarian family meal, this Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry is ready in about 35 minutes. Serve with Naan for a simple, one-pot meal.

Soft Whole Wheat Pretzels

This soft Whole Wheat Pretzel is vegan and can be made in about and hour. This is not my usual post first thing in the New Year. Typically I go for something cleaner... like a lentil soup or something on the lighter side. Okay - usually a soup. And no, I am not making...

Vegan Cranberry Ginger Snack Cake

I see this cake making an appearance on Christmas morning. Something to throw in the oven while the coffee brews and then share slightly warm after most of the presents have been opened. I would serve as I did here, in generous wedges

Ginger Molasses Cookies

These Ginger Molasses Cookies may very well be the best cookie I have ever made. Three kinds of ginger give these cookies an extra gingery kick!

Two-Bite Nutella Brownies

These Two-Bite Nutella Brownies take less than 20 minutes start to finish and need just 3 ingredients. So easy, make them tonight!

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

This Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad has a decidedly holiday twist with the dried cranberries and walnuts. I’ve used a very basic lemon dressing with a little honey to sweeten things up. Nothing crazy. This is easy stuff to throw together. This is one of my favourite ways to serve Brussels Sprouts — raw.

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Carrots with Parmesan

This past Thanksgiving (Canadian version) my Sister-In-Law made these garlic roasted carrots and then covered them with Parmesan and I decided right then that it was the best thing ever to happen to a bunch of carrots. So I had to make them. This is my take on her...

Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Butter Muffins

Pumpkin butter gives these muffins the most rich and sweet pumpkin-y flavour. It would not be fall without a pumpkin spice recipe and here is this year's contribution - Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Butter Muffins. I've used pumpkin butter in these muffins (rather than just...

Oven Roasted Maple Glazed Carrots

I'm not entirely sure why I ended up with so many incredibly cute and perfect farmer's market baby carrots, but I did. Thank you Costco. And fortunately for you, I've used these lovely little bits of crunchy orange and created a couple of side dishes for your next big...

Vegan Butternut Chili. A Slow-cooker Recipe

A warm, slightly sweet and vegan chili. It tastes like fall. And I know it is good for you. Filling and comforting. Perfect for taking the chill from your bones after a long fall walk.

Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake

  This might be the best cheesecake I have ever made. I think someone said that. I'm proud of this one. This Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake is a creamy, lightly spiced cheesecake baked in a gingered graham cracker crust, covered in sautéed cinnamon apples, topped...

Easy Red Lentil Soup

Guys, I'm going to be straight with you here. As much as I love my slow-cooker, most days I am just not together enough at 7am to execute a slow-cooker recipe properly. Nor am I disciplined enough to get such a thing started sometime between dinner clean up and my...

Apple Oatmeal Muffins

A simple cinnamon muffin packed with nutritious oatmeal and fresh fall apples. Pack these in the kids lunch box for a healthy low-fat snack.
