Spiced Sweet Potato Hummus

I know I’m really bending the definition of hummus. Technically, this probably should be called a bean dip. But pretty much any chickpea or bean combination pureed into dippy goodness – is hummus in my book. I just can’t help myself… #hummusisafoodgroup Even if we can’t agree on whether it should be called a dip or hummus –… Continue Reading

Peanut Butter Pudding with Berrylicious Swirl (feature recipe from Plant-Powered Families!)

Our girls are on spring break this week and next, so I’m busy keeping them busy at home! They are spread out in ages (almost 14, 10, and almost 6), so I find they rarely want to do the same things. Sometimes the older two hang out, other times the younger two play together or do… Continue Reading

Warmly Spiced Quinoa Chickpea Stew

Often times, you guys remind me of my own recipes. When I get an email or tweet from you about a recipe you are loving, I’m reminded to share more about those dishes, right here. And I appreciate those notes, especially right now! Between preparing for my book launch in May, reviewing final book edits, preparing for Christmas,… Continue Reading

Gingerbread Granola (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

This weekend I began the very first of my holiday baking! I’m packing up boxes of Christmas gifts for our parents in Newfoundland and my best friend in Ottawa, and decided to sneak in some homemade granola! I’ve had this Gingerbread Granola recipe in my pocket for a couple of years. My recipe testers have already tried it, as I was… Continue Reading

Chocolate Gem Gingerbread

Chocolate and gingerbread. Delicious on their own, but when paired together – a quintessential holiday treat. For many years I made chocolate-ginger-almond-cranberry bark for Christmas gifts, and later I began a new tradition making Chocolate Gingery Cookies (from LTEV). With those goodies in mind, I created this new whole-foods Chocolate Gem Gingerbread!   This gingerbread is delicious without the addition of… Continue Reading

Green Chickpea Hummus

A couple of months ago, Paul returned from Costco with a big bag of frozen green chickpeas. I had heard about them, but never tried them, so I was pretty excited about his food find. Green chickpeas are the raw, fresh form of chickpeas we know and love. They aren’t a fresh legume you find… Continue Reading

Before I get to the food today, I want to start with a note of gratitude. Thank you for all of your heartfelt comments here, and on FB, about Sarabi. It helped to read your beautiful experiences and kind comments. My sincere thanks. Now… not too long ago, I hinted about these Cinnabon Muffins. Ok, more… Continue Reading

Maple-Chipotle Chickpea Salad Dressing (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

For the past year or two I’ve been coming up with a slew of new salad dressings. All whole-foods based, all delicious! Things have been so busy with my new book (promise, details soon!), mothering, and other projects that I haven’t had a chance to properly organize or even post one of these recipes. Until today! This… Continue Reading

POWER Cookies for Back-To-School

My wee girl starts full day kindergarten this year. It’s her first time in full-day school. And my first time with ALL my girls in full-day school! For the last 13+ years I’ve been with kiddos. So, it’s a big change for her, an even bigger change for me. Once school starts, that is… our teachers… Continue Reading

Berry “Scuffins”

With the kids going back-to-school, I bake healthy snacks at least a few times a week. Usually a variety of nut-free muffins, or my pumpkin seed oat bars, or snackles. Whatever the choice, most days it’s got to be fuss-free. I want to get those ingredients into a bowl, mixed and into the oven. I try to… Continue Reading
