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 …

Blueberry Bourbon Crumble – Gluten-Free

I love that we’re well into that time of year when all sorts of amazing fruit is in season and local!  Crumbles are one of my favourite ways to use a bounty of fruit and make dessert for a crowd.  This being blueberry season, it’s time for some blueberry crumble, but with a twist…it’s time for a …

Jerk Mushrooms on Zucchini Noodles – Vegan and Gluten-Free

I just cannot get enough zucchini noodles right now.  I am totally obsessed.  At the moment, my favourite way to eat them is with jerk mushrooms, but they work with curries and Stroganoff too.  The dish is vegan, gluten-free and totally healthy, but still very satisfying.  I think that it’s the combination of the meaty mushrooms and spicy …

Stuffed Peppadew Peppers & Cottage Snacks

Getting to the cottage on a Friday night can be quite an adventure.  Everyone is leaving at different times, there is always traffic, so, instead of making a big meal for dinner, we always put out a huge selection of bread, cheese, meats and snacks.  The most recent addition to our snacking feast?  Feta stuffed …

My Cottage Kitchen Essentials

I’m packing for a trip to the cottage this weekend!  While that means the usual swimsuits and sunscreen, for me it also means packing a bunch of kitchen tools.  There are certain kitchen essentials that I am not willing to leave behind, either because I’m fussy or they’re just too useful.  While this is my …

Hot Pastrami Pizza

I love experimenting with recipes. Sometimes they turn out OK, sometimes not so much.  This Hot Pastrami Pizza was a huge and surprising success!  I received some looks from Mr. Fox about putting mustard on a pizza, but he happily ate his words when helping himself to a first (and second) slice. It’s actually ridiculously easy to make. …

Asian Lettuce Cups – Fast and Gluten-Free

This is one of my go-to dinners if I’m in a rush, have company coming over that has a “diverse” set of eating restrictions or if I’m just feeling like something light and healthy.  These Asian Lettuce Cups are surprisingly simple to put together and, depending on what protein you want to use, can satisfy …
