I hope everyone has been well. It’s been busy in our household and we’ve kind of been trapped in the house due to the smoke from the wildfires in British Columbia coming into our neck of the woods. It smelled like a camp fire outside for the last several days, the sky had a weird […]Read more "Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice"
Hello!! It’s been three months since I’ve last posted. If you follow me on Instagram, I posted about my absence and apologized. I basically couldn’t figure out how to juggle school, cycling, finding the time to search for new recipes and try them out. I’ll post all about this conflict later this week, and a […]Read more "Best Vegan “Pulled Pork” Sandwich"
One day last week I actually had time to look up some new recipes. I was starting to get in a rut with my usual recipes and the joy of cooking was starting to fade. Then I found this recipe for a vegan enchilada pasta casserole. I read through it and it looked pretty simple […]Read more "Vegan Enchilada Pasta Casserole"
It’s been cold here lately! It’s like Old Man Winter woke up and realized it’s still winter so he decided to come back with a vengeance. According to my weather app, it’s now -17C with a windchill of -25C (1.4F and windchill is -13F). I can’t remember what it was yesterday, but there’s been no change […]Read more "Sunshine Soup"
Lately, I’ve been on a carb kick and I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I’m training for a bike ride that I’m doing in June. I’ll do a separate post on that later. But I’m cooking a lot of rice and pasta dishes. I really need to vary what I cook, but it’s just […]Read more "Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes"

Let’s start off with saying “yes, I know the feature image is crap.” That’s what happens when you’re taking photos while you’re cooking. Ok, so that’s off my chest, let’s get on to the recipe. You know how sometimes you get in a rut and you’re recycling the same old recipes, and then you suddenly […]Read more "Vegan Kofta Balls with Butter Chick’n Sauce"
So, it’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted! My sister-in-law was in town for about a week in April, and when she was here I managed to pick up a copy of Minimalist Baker’s cookbook: Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-Based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes. With all the cookbooks I have, I […]Read more "Minimalist Baker Cookbook Review"
How have y’all been?! My trip back home to Augusta, GA and to my Mom’s wedding in Charleston, SC was good. I was surprised at the amount of gluten-free and free-from choices there are at the grocery stores now. I guess I’m used to the way it was 10 years ago. I was worried about […]Read more "Baked Saffron Falafel"
Most people know this dish as General Tso’s chicken, but we vegans and vegetarians know it as General Tso’s tofu. Either way, the dish is good and it’s quick and simple. I’ve tried various versions of this dish over the last year or so and I’ve decided that this one, from Minimalist Baker […]Read more "General Tso’s Tofu"
