It’s the holidays!  Time to have some fun and get together with all of your friends.  I received some gorgeous potatoes from the Little Potato Company, so I decided that it was time for a potato party!   The Little Potato Company sent me some lovely blushing belle and gorgeous fingerling potatoes.  I decided to …

Meringues Three Ways – Gluten-Free

It’s time to bake some cookies!  Actually, around here, anytime is cookie baking time, but today we’re making cookies for the holidays.  I love a master recipe that you can turn into a variety of things.  In this case, we’re making meringues three ways:  Salted Chocolate, Candy Cane and Almond.  You get three cookie for the price …

Kung Pao Cauliflower – Vegan & Gluten-Free

I have been obsessed with Jennifer Bain’s recipe for Kung Pao Cauliflower ever since I first read the article in The Toronto Star.  OBSESSED.  I’m almost ashamed to admit how many times I’ve already made it.     In my quest to get the cauliflower super crispy, I’ve made a few changes to the recipe, so I’m …

Thai Pizza with Mushrooms

It’s pizza time again!  I came up with this Thai Pizza one night when I had a fridge full of leftovers from a recent Asian Lettuce Cup party.  It’s how I love to create new pizzas…”What’s in the fridge?  Throw it on one of the pizzas I’m making!”  This one turned out particularly delish – the fresh toppings …

Breakfast Bruschetta

This is one of my favourite things to make when I have leftover tomato sauce kicking around (like after I make pizza, which is a lot.)  Toast, tomato sauce, egg and a ton of Parmesan cheese.  So good!  While watching Food TV (which I also do a lot), I stumbled upon this different way of …

Mexican Lentil Soup – Vegan & Gluten-Free

It’s soup weather!  The leaves are turning and there’s a chill in the air, so what better thing to make than a spicy, Mexican soup?  This soup was inspired by a trip to Mexico.  I was eating tortilla soup on a gorgeous outdoor cafe and realized that I might be able to duplicate the texture of …

Peanut Sauce Noodles with Veggies – Vegan & Gluten-Free

I created this dish when I had a crazy head cold and needed something fast, easy and satisfying.  It’s basically a one pot meal, but the various ingredients are added at different times, so that they’re all done (and not overcooked) at the same time. This recipe uses the same type of noodles as Pad …

My Vegan Detox Bibimbap

I’m a huge fan of Korean food.  Huge.  I keep two different type of kimchi in my fridge for kimchi-related emergencies.  It took me a while to realize that I could make some of my favourite Korean dishes at home, but once I started, there was no stopping me.  This is my quick, vegan take on …

Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate (there’s Pumpkin in it!)

I can’t believe that it’s almost fall!  Pumpkin spiced lattes have been around for ages now (is it weird that I’ve never tried one?) and all of the stores are filled with Hallowe’en stuff.  We’ve had a few cold days already here in Toronto, so it’s time for some Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate.  Unlike the ubiquitous …

Vegan Arepas – also Gluten-Free!

If you’ve never had arepas, you seriously need to try them!  They’re kind of like an English muffin, but made of corn masa and split open like a pita.  Arapas are gluten-free, so they’re a great open to replace bread if you’re cooking for someone with a gluten sensitivity.  Arepas are usually filled with meat, but …

Cheese Board Pizza with Apple and Walnuts

I’m playing with pizza again!  I made this pizza the first time because I happened to have some apples, blue cheese and ricotta in the fridge (and I love playing with food.)  When it was pizza time again, I didn’t have any blue cheese or ricotta, but did have some leftover cheese from going a little …

My Green Smoothie – Healthy & Vegan

Mr. Fox might like a creamy pink smoothie, but my favourite is a bright green smoothie that’s loaded with healthy fruit and veggies.  This is a bit of a pared down version of Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie.  The Glowing Green Smoothie is amazing, but I don’t always want to blend up that big of a …
