Figgy Buckwheat Muffins

I had a small holiday tea party for a few of my girlfriends last week, and wanted to make one really special baked treat. After making Kim Boyce’s 100% Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies from her amazing Good to the Grain, I’ve wanted to try every other recipe in the book.  And the one that […]

Samovar

So I have to share another foodie find in San Francisco: Samovar Tea Lounge.  I discovered Samovar through two recommendations: Heidi’s San Francisco List at 101 Cookbooks, and a tweet my favourite local tea shop — David’s Tea.  And I am so glad I did! This was my amazing view for two of my lunches.  […]

Apple Cranberry Oatmeal

I have had way too much fun playing around with oatmeal lately — and the latest combination is perfect for the holidays: apples, cranberries, and cinnamon!  Yum! I’ve added in some maple syrup and vanilla for a touch of sweetness, and this is one of my favourite oatmeal combinations yet.  I think I’m going to […]

Baked Apple Breakfast

I have a new favourite breakfast: baked apples topped with oats, nuts, and coconut. A wonderful thing about this breakfast is that you can make it for dessert the night before, and make leftovers-on-purpose for breakfast the next day.  Then you have slow-cooked, aromatic baked apples for breakfast with no time spent in the kitchen […]

Quince Tart with Maple Caramel

I have a new favourite dessert: a quince tart with a maple caramel and a buttery whole wheat crust. Have you met quince before?  (Remember my Quince Clafoutis?)  It’s my favourite fruit: looks like an apple, and smells like the most floral perfumed fruit you’ll ever find!  It’s quince time right now in Toronto, and […]

Millet & Ginger Muffins

I am currently in a breakfast phase where all I want to eat is muffins. Last week they were Meghan‘s Vegan & Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins (yum!), and this week I wanted something with even more fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and crystallized ginger are my go-to fall baking spices, and they are great in […]

Vegan Green Mango Salad

I crave mango salad.  In fact, it is one of my favourite things.  However, I don’t eat it very often as I am afraid of sneaky fish sauce making its way into the otherwise very veggie-friendly salad.  I’ve found fish sauce in mango salads one too many times after being assured that the salad would […]

Whole Wheat Fresh Ginger Cake with Peach Compote

If you like ginger, you need this cake now. It is moist and luscious, and full of spicy ginger goodness — the perfect complement to a “celebrating the end of summer dinner” and birthday celebration chez Louise.  I wanted to do a special cake for her birthday, and knowing how she feels about ginger, it […]

Almond Plum Cake

This cake is perfect.  I think it’s going to be the cake that I serve whenever I need to pull out a breathtaking dessert at the end of a meal.  And only when plums are perfectly in season, like right now for those of us in Ontario.  As you can see, I enjoyed this cake […]
