Coconut Cream Pie French Toast

I recently had an inspired moment where I decided that I really needed to make Coconut Cream Pie French Toast.  Mr. Fox, a lover of both Coconut Cream Pie and French Toast, agreed to make the hard sacrifice and be the test subject for the dish.  The dish was inspired by a picture of Banana Cream Pie French Toast that …

Cucumbers and Honey – My Summer Snack

OK.  I admit that this is not really a recipe, but most people have never heard of eating cucumbers and honey together.  Cucumbers and honey?  This is a very old school snack for me. My great grandmother would eat this and – I believe – introduced me to it.  Sliced cucumbers dipped in honey is …

Sparkling Ginger Mint Lemonade sweetened with Agave

My mom recently presented me with the largest piece of ginger that I have ever seen.   I’m not kidding – I checked and it weighed a pound.  What do you do with a pound of ginger?  My freezer was already stocked up with lots of my Ginger Paste, so I decided that drinks were …

Falafel Salad Wraps – Gluten Free and Vegan

I love falafel.  I really really do.  A couple of years ago, I had a crazy craving and discovered that there are no good ones in my neighborhood.  Wha?  I actually couldn’t believe that a neighborhood in Toronto didn’t have decent falafel, but there it was.  After trying a number of sub-par falafel (Hint:  You should never …

Roman Style Zucchini Brie Pizza

I’m still on a total pizza kick here. This one was inspired by a Roman style pizzeria in our area.  My favourite type of pizza is Neapolitan style, but the Roman place is giving it a run for it’s money!  They recently had a gorgeous looking zucchini brie pizza on display and I knew at …

My Healthy Breakfast – Ranchero Hash

As much as my perfect breakfast is a poached egg on toast, on a normal weekday, I’m looking for a healthy breakfast that doesn’t require a huge effort.  I also like to try and get as many vegetables squeezed into breakfast as possible.  It makes me feel all virtuous and stuff like that. Now, I’m also …

Gluten-Free Guava Oatmeal Crumb Bars

When I was gathering supplies for my Taco Party last weekend, I stumbled on some guava paste at the Mexican grocery store and decided to grab it.  I have a habit of grabbing things without a plan when I’m grocery shopping. Sometimes it works out, sometimes they live in the cupboard way a little too long. …

Taco Party!

Between Gluten sensitivities, Dairy/Lactose intolerance, Vegetarians, Vegetable haters, it’s sometimes hard to plan a group dinner that everyone can eat and that no one feels singled out during due to their eating restrictions. My favourite solution…taco party.   And not just any crunchy-shell-from-a-box-with-a-packet-of-seasoning tacos either (although there are fans of those crunchy shells around here.)  I’m …

Spring Time Pizza with Asparagus and Feta

As much as I love our local pizza joint, I also love making pizza at home. Pizza is one of those blank canvases that you can really play around and get creative with. It’s also a great thing to make for a bunch of people since it cooks so quickly and you can accommodate for different tastes …

My Rules for Cooking

When it comes to cooking, I have a few rules that I not only enforce on myself, but also sometimes “encourage” my friends and family to follow.  I know…I’m bad, but I really feel strongly about these things.  I even admit to not always following some of them myself (see #9), but I think that …

Ode to a Crouton

This post is at the request of my Mom.  She was the one that taught me to make my own croutons and I’ve never looked back.  It’s insanely easy to do and anyone eating them thinks that you’re the most brilliant person in the world.  Once you try these, you will never buy croutons again. …

A Fresh Salad Bowl

This is one of my favourite lunches!  It’s light, yet satisfying.  You can change it completely by mixing up the veggies, noodles or using a different sauce.  It’s even vegan and gluten-free. The sauce that I currently cannot get enough of is Spicy Peanut Lime sauce and it’s stupidly easy to make.  You can do it …
