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...

Vegetarian Lentil Meatballs

These have a decidedly Italian flavour and work well with your favourite tomato-based sauce. Leftovers, with sauce, make really nice veggie meatballs subs.

Chocolate Guinness Cake

I like how not frilly this cake is. This is a cake that feels as dark and stormy as the winter skies. It’s cozy like a coffee, or rather a dark stout.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Put a couple of 12 year-old girls in a kitchen on a Saturday afternoon and you will end up with a batch of cookies. Promise. which can be a handy strategy if you're looking for a little somethin' sweet These are a dense and kinda chewy cookie. We mixed up the...

Pickled Red Cabbage

You have to agree with me that this is the prettiest pickle you have ever seen. Wait -- I might have said that before Ok - so regardless,,, The last CSA bin delivery for the year - on December 16 no less  - included this lovely red cabbage. But with the holidays right...

Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale

This. This is how I like spaghetti squash – when it is still spaghetti squash. When we are not really pretending it is something else. But serving it up as it is. Highlighting all those vegetable qualities that really do make it something wonderful. Adding some sharp and intense flavours like garlic and feta. Good olive oil. This Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale is spot on… if I do say so myself. 🙂

Caramelized Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Smoked Cheddar

Sometimes the simplest things are the best of things. And sometimes simple can be so much more than just simple….
These are not the sweet potatoes you had yesterday. Nope. These are Roasted Sweet Potatoes and they are sweet and salty and peppery and smoky. These are amazing.

Double Chocolate Glazed Donut Cake

A sweet, rich and deeply chocolate cake made with honey and glazed with honey and taste just like a Tim Horton’s Double Chocolate Glazed Donut.

Vegan Carrot Muffins

Today I'm revisiting one of our lunch-box favorites! - Vegan Carrot Muffins. In the grand scheme of things I don't have as much time in the kitchen as I would like, so I tend to try new things more often than I go back and remake the same recipes over and over....

Cauliflower and Tofu Curry

My curry love aside, most curries are veggie filled bowls of healthy goodness making them a smart mom choice for family dinner. This quick Cauliflower and Tofu Curry is no exception. My favourite thing about this dish is its incredible simplicity – hardly more than 5 ingredients (none too exotic) that come together to make something just really good.

Spiced Whisky Pecan Pie Cheesecake

This cheesecake may be the best cheesecake ever. And I would know, because I have made so many cheesecakes. Once upon a time I cooked my way through the Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese calendar. For real. I made every.one. For every occasion I'd whip together a...

Creamy Tomato Mac and Cheese Bake

One of my favourite things about the cold weather is that I feel like I have all the reasons to make creamy and cheesy pasta dishes - like this one - also a February recipe. I have permission. It's expected and needed. It's cold and we need something warm and cozy to...

Almond and Cherry Granola Bars

Today we are paying homage to a granola bar that has saved the day more than once this past month. I am very serious. This will save you from yourself.. As in save you from the vending machine in the lunch room, fries at the arena kiosk, from another bowl of cereal, from near starvation when mom has not made it to the store yet….
