Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

What a GAME last night! Congrats Toronto & Oakland – both were super entertaining to watch. In spirit of yesterday’s festivities, I’ve decide to post some Buffalo Cauli Wings – nom, nom. SO…I finally gave into the Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ craze! After making the rounds at a few favourite eateries to try this stuff out,…

Spiced GreenBeans

Long days like the ones during this long weekend call for some simple fresh eats. Rather than take off and escape to the lake, I’ve been spending every available moment getting caught up on some much needed yard maintenance. Next, the exterior of my house is receiving a total facelift – oy. To keep spirits…

GoldenBeet Chips + Garlicky Spinach Avocado Dip

Sunny days call for deck eats! We’re back in munch mode as the weather has warmed. A couple weeks back I got my hands on some rustic golden beets, so I decided some chips were in order + a side of one of our fave dips – Garlicky Spinach Avocado Dip (emphasis on GARLICKY i.e….

Spiced Apple Cake

As a kid, I had this love/hate relationship with apples. They were my parents quick solution to tide-over a hungry child. For the record, I was still hungry. My lunchbox always included the same – bologna sandwich (no, thank you – tradesies), a fruit rollup, and an apple. The apple was the ONE item I…

Zesty Cheddar Kale Chips

I could faceplant into this bowl:) While I was making the taco layer for my Seven Layered Dip, I thought how have I not rubbed this stuff ALL over kale?! I’ve made kale chips many times, but not once did I think to use my taco sauce recipe. SO, the result…simply the BEST. Once dried,…

Seven Layered Dip

It’s APRIL. I’m excited to say I was gifted my first watermelon of the season – practically its own food group, right! Yum. What I didn’t remember, what it was like to drive with a watermelon. Do you buckle it? Well, either way it kept myself and the pups entertained while we made our way…

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…

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…

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies

StewedRaspberry Yam Brownies! I’ve heard about yam brownies here and there, and finally decided to give them ago putting my own spin on things. I always LOVE the idea of including fruits and/or veg in baked goods. Typically, when I think of brownies they’re fudgy, quite sweet, and rich. These brownies are a couple of…

Nacho Cheese

I bought a jar of @truly.turmeric Wildcrafted Whole Root Turmeric Paste and knew I had to use it in one of my upcoming recipes. Beautiful product. That recipe…this velvety Nacho Cheese. I LOVE turmeric, especially when it comes in a ready to use paste. What I didn’t know when I decided to add it, how well…
