Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

For all the Canadians in the crowd — Happy Thanksgiving!!!! We were so thankful to be able to celebrate with family and friends last night. And our wonderful host, Michael, was sweet enough to accommodate all of our food challenges: one gluten-free vegetarian-blogging-vegan-for-the-month (me!), one vegetarian, two omnivore mushroom-haters, and two omnivores who will eat […]

The Pickled Soprano

Happy National Vodka Day! I had no idea it was Vodka Day until I stumbled across something on Twitter this afternoon. It’s also National Taco Day — to celebrate I think you need some gorgeous Collard Green & White Bean Spicy Chipotle Tacos. And while you’re at it, may I suggest a vodka cocktail? The […]

Banana Nut Muffins (aka. Ash’s Celebratory Muffs)

The lovely Ash and I were getting together today for some much deserved tea time and a celebration — and as such I totally needed to make celebratory mini muffins. Or “Celebration Muffs” as we are now calling them. I went with banana nut as my flavour of the day, as I had some bananas […]

The Plant Cafe, San Francisco

While I was in San Francisco, I thought I’d take myself on a walk to the pier. And am I ever glad I did! I discovered some amazing food shops at The Ferry Building Marketplace at Pier 1, along with a farmers’ market! But based on a recommendation from my Twitter friend Christa, I kept […]

Samovar Tea Lounge, San Francisco – 2012

I was in San Francisco last week, and my absolute favourite place to visit while I’m there is Samovar Tea Lounge in the Yerba Buena Gardens.  I stopped in for tea and lunch, and was treated to a quite place away from the hustle and bustle of both the city and of the conference I […]

Gluten-Free Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Tart

Remember when we had oh-so-many raspberries and made the Raspberries & Cream Ice Slice? Well, we had enough raspberries for a second dessert, and it needed chocolate. So I invented this tart. It’s deep, dark, and sinfully chocolatey. With not only a chocolate crust, but a silky chocolate ganache filling. And topped with raspberries for […]

Corn & Kidney Bean Casserole

The lovely folks at Thomas Allen & Son were kind enough to send me a review copy of a new vegan cookbook — Vicki’s Vegan Kitchen by Vicki Chelf. And so I had a cookbook to curl up with by the fire when we spent a week at the cottage.  While we were up there, […]

Garlicky Spinach & Lentil Soup

I’ve been experimenting with the green garlic that I’ve been getting in my fabulous veggie box… it’s kind of like having fresh garlic, garlic scapes, leeks, and onions, all at the same time! I used all of the parts of the green garlic in this soup and it was oh-so delicious and garlicky without being […]

Sister Socca with Indian Spices & Sister Socca Pizza

Guess who’s back? Back again. Heather’s back. Tell a friend. Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Heather’s back! And we decided to have another experimenting sister-date in the kitchen. This time, we were playing around with socca — a chickpea pancake from Nice of gluten-free proteiny deliciousness. [Heather says: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.] […]

Roasted Radishes

So there I was, poking around on Pinterest the other day (which Pem has decided should be pronounced: “P”-interest), and up popped a pin for Roasted Radishes. I immediately pinned it to my “Eat Me” Board, and went on with my day. Well, I couldn’t get that thought of Roasted Radishes out of my head. […]
