Whats New This Week?

October 21, 2019

            Do you ever feel like there’s one thing you just can’t seem to cook or bake? Well I do, and that’s brownies! To this day I have never made a perfect batch of brownies, by this I mean like a big pan of brownies, for some reason if I make little ones in muffin cups, they turn out great but I’ve NEVER cook a full try of brownies right!...

          There’s something about the cooler weather that always makes my diet take a 360 twist for the worst. I tend to forget that fruits and veggies are not optional but necessary, and end up eating a ton of calorie dense foods that make me feel horrible, but warm and cozy at the same time. 

          This year, I decided to pay attention t...

        The explanation of why I made doughnuts this week is simple, Maxime bought me a doughnut pan; and so, I made doughnuts.

          So I guess the sentence above wasn’t enough to fill in my intro to this weeks recipe, was it?  Fine I’ll continue on …

          A few months ago, when I was...

          Sometimes work lunches can be a bore, I tend to stick to the same 3 or 4 meals usually based around pasta or rice, I like my carbs :p As a new years resolution I decided it would be a good idea to incorporate more meals with a wider variety of grains, veggies and protein.  So lets kick it off with one of my newest workweek favourites! Veggie filled falafel...

            Last week was an insane rush, from the moment I woke up until the second I was finally able to fall asleep! Along with trying to get used to the new job, making reservations and plans for a weekend getaway, taking care of the apartment, a sick fiancé along side two overly energetic cats; I have to admit, it wasn't easy!  Saturday morning before leaving I...

          While waiting in line at Starbucks the other morning, I noticed they had these amazing looking treats; naturally, they were not vegan so as soon as I got home I made it my mission to find out how to make something similar.  Keep in mind I’ve never tried the Starbucks version, but oh man, you are in for a treat with these homemade cranberry Bliss bars!...

        My first Christmas as a vegan, I had no idea what to make for a fancy looking “main” meal. So much like everyone else, I set out on an Internet hunt for delicious holiday foods for vegans. The first “Christmas” inspired food I found were these amazing vegan pot pies, my family didn’t have Pot pies around the holidays, but there was something about this recipe...

          When I was a kid I was all about the sugar cookies, my sister was more of a gingerbread lover…. For some weird reason this year I actually felt like I needed to make gingerbread cookies BEFORE my beloved sugar cookies ?! What’s up with that? Anyways after three batches of gingerbread cookies I finally found a recipe that worked!  The first batch was too cru...

          Okay, So this is the second recipe I’ve tried for royal icing, The first recipe I tried was made with Aquafaba (chickpea brine) and it turned out very well! However I wanted to find another type of liquid I could use, I don’t often have a can of chickpeas at home since I prefer to cook my own from scratch.

          Af...

          Like most families, as a kid we had our traditions, on the first of December every year, I would get home from my volleyball tournament and my mom and sister would always be waiting for me, Christmas music playing, a bowl of chips, a plate of cookies and some spiced Pepsi (I know none of this is healthy but hey, its once a year! Also … they don’t make spice...

          This week was tofu inspired; the weather is getting cooler which means it's bulking season for this home girl! In the winter I tend to be at the gym 6 to 7 days a week, including tons of heavy lifting and hard work! In the summer I tend to lean more towards cardio and toning, and winter is when I kick it into full gear and try to build and feed my body to g...

           Chilli, Is the any other food that screams the cool weather of fall has officially arrived? When I was a kid my mom always made chilli when the weather was just starting to get cold, I guess you can say it became somewhat of a tradition I decided to keep! If you have any veggies you’re unsure of what to do with in the fridge, toss them into a big pot of ch...

          Ever go to a fancy restaurant, and while looking for vegan options you come across a pasta dish that catches your eye. You know the one, pastas stuffed with cheese in a creamy, cheesy sauce and then baked in the oven to grill more cheese on top, and all you can think is…. “Why can’t they make this vegan?” Well no need to spend $25+ on pasta in a restaurant!...

Well lets not let a little cold bring us down!
