Popcorn Balls

It’s a Popcorn Ball & The Great Pumpkin kind of night – thank you, Charles Schulz. Two classics + two pups to keep me warm (& safe) = pure Halloween bliss. These plant based beauties are gooey, lightly butter/vanilla flavoured, and packed full of chewy dried super fruit & toasted pepitas. They’re an oldie made into…

Caramel Apples *TwoWays

Just look at ’em shiny apples! It was like taking an awkward selfie (honestly, ALL selfies are awkward – they never turnout well for me…yikes). Caramel Apples – TwoWays. The more subtle Double Glazed Maple & the rich, Coconut Caramel. Both are SUPER sticky, so you won’t want to bump apples unless you plan on…

Pumpkin PeanutButter Dog Biscuits

The pups needed a little Thanksgiving love too! I don’t know what it is about pumpkin puree, but it’s always hanging around in my refrigerator. Max and Belle were pretty excited to have these Pumpkin PeanutButter Dog Biscuits on the menu for a couple weeks. They’ll eat almost anything, but like their mom, PeanutButter is…

Spiced Apple Galette

Ahh, this Spiced Apple Galette though. She’s a stunner. When I bought my house over 3yrs ago, I went on a mission to create, to me, the perfect pie crust. Not only had I just bought my first home, but I also inherited a variety of fruit bearing trees including a large apple tree. I…

Pumpkin Dinner Rolls (Buns)

There’s just something about the smell of freshly baked bread. It’s probably right up there with one of the most recognizable (delicious) smells in the world. Yum. I don’t eat a lot of bread, but these Pumpkin Dinner Rolls (Buns) were devoured in minutes – I had help. They’re actually a converted recipe my grandma…

Veggie Gravy

Coming atcha on a Sunday! SO what are those BlackBean, Walnut, & Cremini Baked Balls topped with?! Veggie Gravy…mmm. My pops makes a mean gravy from scratch, but since being 100% plant based, I needed to cook up one of my own. It’s pretty much a simple veggie soup base that is naturally thickened by…

BlackBean, Walnut, & Cremini Baked Balls

AND the ‘meat’ to my potatoes…these BlackBean, Walnut, & Cremini Baked Balls. If anyone wants to suggest a different name, please go right ahead! These beauts made one delicious centre piece to our feast. The carnivores in the fam felt they were a pretty solid alternative. Yeah, they did – they’re packed full of protein. They…

BrusselSprout Salad

First up, BrusselSprout Salad. Roasted & pan fried brussels are some of our favourites!…but I wanted something fresh on my plate, so I decided to make a simple salad with organic dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, and Toasted Walnut Dressing. It fit in perfectly. That much needed lightly acidic bite to balance out all the other…

Thanksgiving Feast

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! It’s been a busy one but I couldn’t be more grateful for ALL the tasty eats. I had a couple dinners to attend, and chowed down on some serious veg. Full tummy and heart. Well, here’s my spread! Kept things pretty simple seeing as I had SO much that I wanted to…

Spicy Tofu + BlackBean Tacos

It’s not a Tuesday, but I think Wednesdays are fair game for Tacos. Same with Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays…love em’. These tacos are stuffed full of perfectly spiced tofu + organic black beans, crisp green cabbage, cilantro, green onions, avocado, and bbq corn. This is definitely a recipe I purposely make extra of. Just think…taco salad,…

Carrot Oatmeal Bars

This is what happens when you’re deciding on what ‘shot’ to take of the food – AND munch while doing so. Of course, it had to be from the top. These Carrot Oatmeal Bars are loaded with goodies. I kept making these gems for a few weeks back-to-back. They were the perfect jumpstart to my…

Apple Slaw

Weekend cabin eats…full plate of roasted veg, Apple Slaw, & Field Roast ‘sausage’ cozied in with a pile of caramelized onions. What you don’t see is the pot of steamed fresh garden carrots and beets sitting just out of frame. As usual, there was no lack of food. What a great weekend to take in Fall….
