Adventures in London Fog Meringues aka. *~AQUA WTFABA?!*~

If there is anything I resent about GETTING MY PROTEIN more than anything in the world, it is totally the gross chickpea water that comes out of a can all vile and thick, and smells disgusting, and I seriously rinse those things for like 15 minutes straight in a colander and peel off the skins…

Vegan Ginger “Beef”

Weirdly enough, we are kind of spoiled here in Alberta with vegan western-ized Chinese food. Even while in Vancouver last week with a ton of vegan options available to me, I still found myself pining for all of my favourites. One of my favourite places growing up in our small town happened to double as a Chinese…

Roasted Vegetable Skillet Lasagna! PASTA PUNX PREVAIL!

My obsession with my cast iron skillets continues! After a long week, I decided I would like to spend my Saturday evening in, alone, eating pasta. As one does. I had half a box of lasagna noodles in the back of the pantry just waiting to be enjoyed, but I haven’t had the patience lately for…

Miso Ramen is for (white wine) Lovers.

Happy Sunday darlings! We kinda had our first bit of actual snow over the weekend, and I thought I would finally get around to sharing some of the soup recipes I’ve been keeping up my sleeve. All winter, I am seriously powered by soup. To the point where even right now, I have a couple different…

Things I Love Thursday: C.R.E.A.M (Chocolate Rules Everything Around Me)

Oh hiiiii pals! It’s time for another THINGS I LOVE THURSDAY. I have sung high praises about chocolate for TILT before, but this is a super special one. My friends over at Cococo Chocolatiers, owners of Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut® recently contacted me, and hooked me up with some awesome treats. My little parcel of chocolate joy…

“I feel full after the risotto.”

TODAY I CAME HOME AND CHANGED IMMEDIATELY INTO MY FLEECE PYJAMAS AND THEN MADE RISOTTO FOR THE FIRST EVER TIME, AND NOW I AM CURLED UP EATING THE RISOTTO AND DRINKING THE REST OF THE CHEAP WINE THAT DOESN’T GO INTO THE RISOTTO. THEN I WATCHED THIS EPISODE OF SEINFELD BECAUSE IT IS TOO GOOD…

2015: The Summer of the Charcuterie ft. Sundried Tomato Dill Cheeseballs

Is it weird for a vegan to suddenly obsess and browse pages of artisanally crafted cheeseboards for her newfound charcuterie habit? Because I’m pretty positive that I want to eat charcuterie style for the rest of my life. Between spending hot summer days outside at the farmer’s markets, sweating in the kitchen, or just generally…

Crust Punk French Onion Soup

I mean, I guess this soup isn’t all that crusty, but after the Crust Punk Mac n’ Cheese happenings in T.O.F.U Magazine this month, a friend and I decided I just needed to upthepunx on here generally. I had written a French Onion soup recipe once before a few years back, but decided yesterday that…

NO FAIL MAC N NOT CHEESE.

  If you have followed The Cozy Vegan for awhile, you’ll note that I have a certain affinity for vegan mac n cheese! I have written many mac n not cheese recipes for you cutie pies in the past, but I think I have finally landed on a real winner! I’ve experimented with so many….

Field Trip Fridays!!!! YEG Chinatown!

Lovelies! I haven’t had a solid Field Trip Friday in forever, and 2015 is going to be all about being rad and doing whatever I want all the time. Which happened to be a field trip today. It’s been quiet times the past week with the holidays, but after a sleepy New Year’s day of…

Red Curry Mac n’ (not) Cheese

Cozy timessss! It’s winter! It’s -28 degrees Celsius outside! It’s time to hide inside, stare out the window at the snow, and eat comfort food. This evening I was craving vegan mac n’ cheese, but also contemplating ordering thai curry but then realized what a jerk move it would be to expect someone to bring…
