Chestnut Loaf w/ Rosemary Apricot Glaze

Happy Winter Solstice!! This savoury Chestnut Loaf topped with a Rosemary Apricot Glaze is what I’ll be packing over to my family Christmas Dinner. I wanted something that smelt and tasted like the festive season it is, and this loaf couldn’t have been more on point. It’s full of goodies including roasted chestnuts, butternut squash,…

GingerSpice Cookies

GingerSpice Cookies – these have got to be both mine & my sister’s absolute favourite cookies, or some variation of (and not just for the holidays). Yes, we may be a little picky when it comes to our favourite cookies. BUT when they do make the cut…you’ll know it – we can NEVER eat just…

MinceMeat(less) Tarts

MinceMeat(less) Tarts – they’ve been a feature in my parents holiday baking for YEARS. Well, at least the ‘meat’ version has. Although, I had never actually tried one of my parents tarts, I loved how rustic they looked adding an organic presence to a plate full of goodies. SO, it seemed I had some homework…

Hearty Enchilada Sauce

There’s this sauce my dad would make on taco night that was SO good I couldn’t help but hover in the kitchen sneaking SPOONFULS of it as it simmered down. I loved skimming the skin that forms off the top. Super flavourful. I would totally do this whole act of “…going to chop some cilantro!”…

Raw RedVelvet Brownies

AND when there’s beet pulp…why not make these Raw RedVelvet Brownies! After making the (nut)milkshakes from last week, I decided to put the pulp leftover from juicing into a batch of raw brownies. It’s recipes like this that feel like the core of thecrimsonsink – fresh, healthy, whole, and delicious plant based food. Beets also…

Lemony Potatoes & Walnut ‘Meat’

Is anyone else feeling like December is passing by VERY quickly?! SO much to do in what will hopefully be enough time (yikes). Oh, those festive eats – they’re EVERYWHERE.┬áSO, I’m trying to make an effort whenever possible to fit in my veggies!…and there’s nothing quite like sitting down to a BIG bowl of comfort….

Red Velvet (Nut)MilkShakes

Getting into the holiday spirit with these Red Velvet (Nut)MilkShakes! It may be cold outside, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about this deliciously creamy & healthy fresh shake. No need to sweat the calories on this one. I’ve been baking a lot of potatoes lately and had a craving for a milkshake….

Cauliflower Chowder + Coconut BaconBits

Cauliflower Chowder + Coconut BaconBits…the temperatures have really dropped over the last few days (or so it feels) and I’m FREEZING. Combined with the natural gas shortage, you can find me waltzing around my home with a blanket cape. There’s no shame when it comes to comfort & warmth. I get it. One of the…

Kale, Orange, & Farro Salad

Tis’ the season for mucho feasting! Before I get into it too deep, I’m bringing the greens. I love Christmas, but I’m ALL about the festivities leading up to the big day – games, gatherings, and seasonal traditions. With full schedules, we’re often resorting to platter-like snacking of (nut) cheeses, crackers, home pickled goods, fresh…
