Falafel as Frik

Holla folks. After a few weeks of barely having time to cook for myself ever, I finally picked a gloomy-ish day to stay in and spend the better half of the afternoon in my kitchen at home. After a brief disaster wherein I broke a jar of coconut oil then stepped on the glass like…

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…

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…

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…

My Cruelty-Free Summer Picks!

So, is it safe to say that summer is finally upon us?! After some pretty rainy days, I feel as though we’ve finally experienced our first few breaths of summer this week. Blue Rose Baking Co has launched at the farmer’s markets, and we look forward to sticking around until fall. I plan on spending…

Vegan Nanaimo Bars and Earth Balance Feature!

Good morning darlings! It is the day of Christmas eve and I am cozied up and hiding in, obviously enjoying some Earl Grey Tea! I know I’ve been posting a lot about guest blogs that I’ve done, but I promise that this is the last one I am going to share for awhile, as I got…

Getting Cozy for the Holidays With Whole Foods

It was a rainy day in Oregon when I fell head over heels for Whole Foods. Seeking out a quick lunch and some treats to smuggle in my suitcase home to Canada, I stumbled on into Whole Foods. This being my first time walking through the aisles of a Whole Foods, I wandered around amazed,…

Veggie Faux Gratin <3

Every year as it gets colder outside, my body undergoes some sort of weird winter transformation where it only wants comfort food ever. Suddenly, the only vegetables I crave are those that can be roasted or mashed, and I want BREAD FOR EVERY MEAL. I drink five different kinds of tea a day when I’m…

Take Care of Yourself Tuesday. *no recipes just rambles*

Holy damn you guys, I’m sorry for the radio silence the past week or so. Things have been so busy lately I’ve hardly had time to sit down. Now, I’m actually laying down, in bed. Home sick from class, actually, because I’m quite worn down and have come down with some obligatory beginning of winter…
