Boiled Orange and Almond Cake from “Good Food Fast”

Don’t you just love when an idea and a plan of attack come together at once? I was reading an article by Sam Worley on Epicurious about baking with citrus, and how to use the whole fruit for extra flavour. Worley recommends soaking or simmering slices of orange (rind and all!) in simple syrup… so […]

Spicy Red Lentils

Mmmm, red lentils. They have become a staple around here, as they contain a good boost of protein, taste delicious, and cost so little! I made these red lentils on the same day as my Roasted Squash with Tahini and Lemons, so that I’d have a protein course along with my veggies.   I served them […]

Devil’s Tongue Hot Sauce for Karen

My lovely friend Karen brought me some hot hot hot “Devil’s Tongue” peppers from her garden, asking if I took requests for the blog. And when she said I could have the peppers if I made hot sauce and shared the recipe, I was TOTALLY in! I was debating what to do with them, and […]

Chili Lime Popcorn

Did you know you can make popcorn easily on your stove?  Just put the kernels and some oil in a pot with a lid, keep your heat down to medium-low, and you’ll have better-than-microwave popcorn! Mr. KitchenOperas and I are big popcorn fans.  We’ll make a big bowl in the evenings, and munch away to […]

Toronto: Tori’s Bakeshop — A Vegan Bakery

Vegan MoFo has meant that Ashley and I have spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Today was just too beautiful to stay inside, so we went for an adventure: lunch at Tori’s Bakeshop, followed by a walk on the boardwalk. I’ve heard lots of good things about Tori’s Bakeshop, but hadn’t been yet… […]

A Solo Socca Snack

I’ve been making a lot of socca around here (imagine a big savoury chickpea-flour pancake!), and finally have come up with a single-serving version… which I’ve been making for a quick snack, or even breakfast!!! The last time I blogged about socca, my sister (Heather) and I flavoured it two ways: 1) with Indian spices […]

Ashley made these awesome energy balls that look like Larabar-inspired apple pie truffles. I totally need a batch in my fridge for this week! I’ve made energy balls like this before, like these Dark Chocolate & Orange Energy Balls or ones with protein powder, and they’re a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.  You totally feel like you’re […]
