Kabocha Squash & Cheddar Muffins

Sundays to me are a perfect baking day. You get a baked treat for one of your meals or snacks, and you have leftovers for the rest of the week. There’s nothing like waking up on a dreary & rainy Monday morning and having homemade muffins waiting for you. These are savoury muffins, and a […]

Butternut Squash & Caramelised Onion Galette

On Thanksgiving weekend we were lucky enough to get an invite up to our friends’ cottage — perfectly situated on a lake surrounded by beautiful falling orange, yellow, and red leaves, and smelling and feeling like Fall. I was in charge of dinner one night, and wanted to make something “Thanksgiving-y” that wasn’t traditional Thanksgiving […]

Let’s pretend you’re having a dinner party.  And twenty minutes before the guests arrive, you realize you forgot to buy a baguette to go with the stew! What’s a good host to do but make some quick flatbreads? Of course, there’s no time to wait around for dough to rise — but that’s no problem, […]

Plum & Port Whole Wheat Tart

I think one of the basics you need up your kitchen sleeves is a good tart dough.  If you have a savoury one and a sweet one, you’re good to go.  Well, when I was thinking about making my first dinner as part of Vegan MoFo, I knew I needed a vegan sweet tart dough, […]
