Jump To Recipe I’m a bit of a donut fiend. Maybe it’s because Canadian culture is so closely tied to Tim Hortons donuts and coffee. Maybe it’s because my parents celebrated all their children’s tee-ball, softball, and baseball wins with a box of donuts. Maybe it’s because no road trip was complete without a couple […]

The Best Carrot Cupcakes and Cream Cheese Frosting – All Vegan
I feel it necessary to say up front that these are THE BEST, and they are ALL VEGAN. I wanted a proper vegan cream cheese frosting to get the classic carrot cake feel…
Vegan Brunch: It’s Real and It’s Fabulous
Of course, when you think of breakfast or brunch, invariably, you will think of eggs, bacon, coffee with cream and sugar. That is, you will think of foods that are the opposite of vegan. I swear to you though, a vegan brunch as familiar as your old standard of bacon, eggs, and toast with butter, is totally possible and delicious.
Vegan Chai Iced Cinnamon Buns
I think there is a common misconception that vegans can’t have baked goods. The traditional recipes are FULL of milk, egg, butter — all those animal by-products. Fortunately there are MANY vegan alternative recipes to the beloved traditional baked goods… one of my favourites, the Cinnamon Bun.
Tofu, Cheeze, Mushroom, and Spinach Quiche with Potato Crust
It wasn’t until my taste buds developed a bit that I started to enjoy quiche for the rich, savoury flavour, and the versatility, and indulgence. Then, soon after I’d learned to like quiche, I became vegan and found a substitute for quiche!
Holiday Vegan Eggnog
I’ve always been a bit of an eggnog fiend. Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit better than a fresh cup of eggnog and Christmas songs. This will be my first Vegan Christmas, and I was starting to feel a bit of a nostalgia pang — so I decided to solve it with some vegan eggnog!
My Vegan Halloween
Halloween is my favourite holiday. I love fall, I love dress-up, and I love ghost stories. More importantly, though, this holiday encourages more creativity than all others, and how could I not love that?! This year, I got to have fun making spooky vegan recipes and drinks, with a couple gluten-free options as well. Come into my blog lair, and let me show you…
Vegan, Caramel, Gluten-free Cheesecake (Yes Please)
The typical vegan cheesecake recipe involves a cashew base. Having over-indulged on all things cashew at the start of my vegan journey, I developed a bit of a sensitivity to the nut. I tend to get super bloated and pained when I eat cashews now, so I had mostly ruled out cheesecake for the foreseeable future. Until now… This recipe does not use any cashews! That’s also good news for those looking for a less fat-heavy cheesecake recipe. The base of this cheesecake is coconut milk, which is half the fat content of cashews.
My Fave Quinoa Salad
Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, largely unrefined, ancient grain, and a more environmentally friendly choice of grain. According to Self Nutrition Data, there are 8.1g of protein per 1 cup of cooked quinoa. Quinoa protein is comparable to casein, the protein found in dairy, and is considered a complete or essential protein source. I’m going to share with you my favourite base for Quinoa Salad, below. This one is tangy and savoury and happens to be seriously addictive…
Vegan Gluten-Free Seed Crackers
When you first talk to others about going vegan, without a doubt, you will hear a few “but where will you get your protein?” protests from omnivores. There’s a prolific misconception that meat is the best/only source of protein for any diet, anywhere. The best way I’ve found to easily integrate plant-based protein sources into my diet is to generously integrate legumes into my dishes …
