It turned into a tradition that we would treat the other to High Tea and manicures for the other’s birthday. This became a bit more complicated when we both started living vegan. I took it upon myself to make us a proper Vegan High Tea, and started a new tradition.
Vegan Christmas: Gingerbread Cookies
Is Christmas really Christmas without gingerbread? The smells, the taste, it’s all just Christmas joy! There’s no bigger gingerbread fan than my husband, so every year I make up a batch of gingerbread cookies especially for him.
Vegan Buttery Sugar Cookies
It’s pretty easy to make delicious vegan cookies. When I discovered the winning recipe for vegan sugar/shortbread cookies, I became the designated Christmas sugar cookie maker. In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d share this deliciousness with you.
Where Do Vegans Get Their Nutrients?
In my almost-two-year vegan journey, I have learned quite a bit about proper nutrition, and how attainable it is on a vegan diet: as well as what scary things can happen to your body if you aren’t getting proper nutrition.

Halloween Recipes: Vegan “Vampire” Sliders
I delight in creating creepy versions of our favourite party snack foods, and our guests love it, too. Last year, I successfully created our first Vegan Halloween Menu, but it definitely had room for improvement. So, this year, I am planning ahead and testing recipes…First up, mini vampire sliders!
Spinach and Vegan Ricotta Tortellini with Rosé Sauce
I never like to say goodbye to a good thing, so I’ve spent much of my vegan journey trying to create vegan cheeses to solve all my taste cravings. Happily, I’ve been able to recreate an equally delicious vegan version of my preteen pasta fave — the spinach ricotta tortellini! I decided that this recipe was too good not to share, so here it is.
Have you noticed the veganization happening all over the US and Canada? The Junk Food Vegan is seizing the day lately, thanks to a few approaching-ubiquitous plant-based meat companies, Beyond Meat, and Impossible Foods, specializing in their own versions of seriously convincing vegan burgers.
