Chickpea, Fennel & Yellow Zucchini Soup

Our weather turned this morning — it’s officially fall, and I’m loving it.  ‘Tis the season of fuzzy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and most importantly, soup!

Chickpea & Collard Greens Coconut Curry

One of my favourite ways to spend an evening with my dear friend Pem is in the kitchen.  We have had cooking dates since we first became friends in high school, trying this recipe of her mum’s for a party, or that recipe in a cookbook that got one of us really excited.  It’s the […]

Pumpkin Chai Hummus

Ashley, my hummus-co-blogger, is back to share the sweet hummus we came up with this weekend — it’s a great pairing to the Roasted Butternut Hummus because it uses the other half-can of chickpeas and the other bit of butternut squash, as well as the Masala Chai Spice Blend we posted yesterday.  We’re calling it […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Hummus

Ash and I got together this weekend for another hummus date!  We started with a PERFECT yoga class that has set the gold standard for yoga classes to come — it was a vinyasa class and had a really great flow that kicked our butts.  I’ve started running this year, and have noticed that I […]
