Vanilla Cashew Yogurt – vegan, soy-free, gluten-free

Hi kids! It feels like forever since I last posted. If you could see a glimpse of my life, well, I’m not going to pretend I’m keeping it all together in fine fashion. With the girls having summer break, puppy training, doing the photo shoot for the cover of “Plant-Powered Families” (and twice!), a couple… Continue Reading

Lentil Walnut-Apple Burgers topped with “Almonnaise”

Fourth of July and Canada Day (July 1st) seem to launch summer – the food, the picnics, BBQs, and kids breaking from school. For us, summer essentially started two weeks ago. Our teachers went on strike, so the kids abruptly left school two weeks early. Our girls will be going into grades 8, 5, and… Continue Reading

Artichoke and White Bean Dip

  Ever taste something, love it, and later discover that it contained an ingredient that you were pretty darn sure you didn’t like? If you’re a parent, you may have intentionally done this to ‘sneak’ in a particular food with your kiddos. But, ever have the experience where it happens naturally? Just serving the food… Continue Reading

Returning to Blogging: Peanut Thai Vegetable Stew

Hello friends. I’m officially back to blogging! I was very touched by your heartfelt comments on my last post. I read them all, quite a few times. Your kindness reached me during a rough time. Thank you. I’ve had some personal insights in the last couple of months. My journey has just begun. I have… Continue Reading

Orange Chocolate Pudding (vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, raw, oil-free, nut-free)

Hello friends! My blogging has been minimal these past two months, sorry I’ve been a little absent. I have missed communicating with you all! My absence has been for good reason, though. I’m finishing the manuscript for my next cookbook, due March 1st! It’s been tricky finding productive chunks of work time, because my day… Continue Reading

Walnut-Pecan Balls – and Reminiscing

My very first recipe for a vegan meatball was in The Everyday Vegan. That recipe isn’t a traditional meatball, more of an asian-fusion with flavors of hoisin, miso, cilantro and paired with a sweet and sour sauce. It’s actually one of my favorite recipes from TEV, though I rarely make them now (new recipe development… Continue Reading

Clean Eating: Smoky Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad

Out goes December with its indulgent dinners and desserts… and in comes January with cleanses, detox plans, and unfortunately – quick-fix diets. Silly diet programs aside, do you do cleanses or detox plans this time of year? I have never done a cleanse or detox. I could very well benefit from one, I”m not sure!… Continue Reading

Vegan Pumpkin Muffins (with chocolate chips!)

Welcome December! Any other moms feeling just a little overwhelmed? It’s not even shopping for the kids, right? It’s all the other stuff that comes with being a mom and the holidays. Cue: bake sales and craft fairs and field trips and projects and concerts and gingerbread houses and school parties and activity parties and… Continue Reading

Savory Pumpkin Recipe: Pumpkin Chickpea Cauliflower Curry with Cashew Cream Sauce

We just enjoyed our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. The best part? The pumpkin pie! I am transforming the mix for my Pumpkin Custards into a thicker, larger batch for a pumpkin pie filling, along with a homemade oat-and-nut crust. The first trial was fabulous, so I will be finalizing that recipe for you soon… Continue Reading

Recipe: Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto

Summer is winding down. Already I’m feeling blue! I’m a summer girl, so it’s hard for me to say farewell to the warm weather – SUNSHINE (vitamin D!) – abundant summer fruits and vegetables – and herbs. One of my cold-weather coping mechanisms is to batch and freeze pesto at the end of summer… for… Continue Reading

Vegan Cuts

Wildside Jar for green smoothies, thick and nut-based sauces and dessert purees. I use mine 1-2x/day.

Twister Jar is the BEST for healthy, homemade salad dressings and sauces
