Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies! Was this anyone else’s favourite as a kid (still is)?!? That crisp exterior, chewy interior, and loads of melty chocolate chips. THE best. Today, I make these gems with dairy free chocolate chunks – love them. AND the salt…just present enough to make these cookies slightly addictive. Glass of cold (nut)…

Grilled Veg Sammie

Grilled (fully loaded) Veg Sammie on homemade ciabatta. The only complaint I received about this sandwich…it’s a little too BIG. Ok, I can live with that. Packed with caramelized onions, roasted eggplant, red pepper, portobello mushrooms, zucchini, and house feta – there’s definitely no lack of flavour here! That ciabatta grilled up perfectly soaking up…

Cabin Cobb Salad

Breakfast, lunch, dinner – this salad can pretty well fit in ANYWHERE. Cabin Cobb Salad. I tacked on ‘cabin’ simply because I eat a few variations of this salad, and brekkie at the cabin is usually (scrambled tofu) eggs + smart bacon. Thanks LightLife! This salad is always a favourite as it sports ALL of…

Tortiglioni w/ *Roasted CherryTomato Pesto

Let there be PASTA – you had to see this one coming! Still riding the wave of easy eats, and what’s easier than tossing some al dente pasta in with the Roasted CherryTomato Pesto I whipped up the other day. Fridays are ALL about welcoming the weekend by calling your crew, kicking up your feet,…

Roasted CherryTomato Pesto

It’s (finally) SPRING! For me, Spring is all about simple sides like this Roasted CherryTomato Pesto. The warmer temps turn me into a cheerful content grazer rather than the better be BIG hungry beast winter weather seems to attract (cue Godzilla clip). The cold just makes me SO hangry?! It doesn’t get much easier than…

ChagaCino Protein Bars

ChagaCino Protein Bars – with just a hint of coffee (CappucCino). Has anyone tried Mushroom Coffee yet?? I was lucky enough to sip on a cup recently. Thanks @surferbaron! If you have a chance to try @foursigmatic coffee, DO IT. It was delicious & instant – perfect for those days when running out the door…

Crumbly Baked Pineapple

Yep, this one takes me WAY back – Crumbly Baked Pineapple. This recipe reminds me of one you’d find in a children’s cookbook – it’s fun, sweet, and easy. As kids, my older sister would play ‘restaurant’ with me and my brother. I think she would have been around 16, which would have made me…

Butternut Squash Romesco Soup

I don’t know about you, but the hour change is hitting me HARD (…zzz). It’s simple meals like this Butternut Squash Romesco Soup that keep me nourished during my more spent days. I just LOVE sauces like romesco – packs on TON of flavour, good for DAYS, and SO versatile. I always have some sort…

Artisan Beet Burger

BEET Burgers – one of my all time favourites. AND apparently, I’m not the only one. Hi Anne! This isn’t my first burger that features beets. I posted THE Converter (Veggie) Burger last year – yum. Unlike THE Converter (Veggie) Burger, this Artisan Beet Burger contains just beets – and an apple, aside from a…

THE Quinoa Salad

We’ve only ever referenced this salad as THE Quinoa Salad. This recipe, or some variation of, has been in the family since quinoa first made its way onto store shelves – AND it continues to be a hit with family & friends since. We started out by first mixing it with (a whole) cucumber, green…

Spiced Apple+Pecan Pancakes

International Pancake Day…whaaa, did I miss it?! Apparently yesterday was the BIG day, and seeing as I had planned to post pancakes on Friday anyways – I’m bumping it up to today to catch the tail-end of this classic breakfast wave. There were some really yummy looking stacks out there! Love it. Although mine aren’t…

Pistachio Encrusted Broccoli w/ Harissa Mayo

Happy Monday! Before I get into today’s post, I’d just like to say Thank You. I ‘ve been receiving multiple notifications regarding my recipes/posts – shared, tagged, made. I’m over joyed to share something I enjoy SO much with likeminded people. Super cool. What a true pleasure it is to also experience many of you…
