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…

TREAT YOSELF TUESDAY; bath bombs, ho-cho, embroidery, oh my!

Happy TREAT YOSELF TUESDAY, darlings. It already seems like it’s been such a long week, but mostly because I have tried to pack everything in before I visit some FAM JAM AND PALS AND EAT SOME DELICIOUS VEGAN FOOD in Calgary tomorrow! That said, I’m NEVER too busy for self care, and here are some…

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…

Beer Battered Avocados

Oh hi! I know that previously, I sung praises about beer battered tofu and how great and lovely it is, and now I am here to do the same thing about DEEP FRIED AVOCADO! This summer has reinvigorated my love for most things avocado; on my toast and bagels, in salads, as guac with fresh…

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…

Babely Beer Battered Tofu <3

Hi lovelies! It’s Monday and I am feeling some serious comfort food vibez as I catch up on laundry and…well… Netflix watching! I looked in my fridge the other day, and noticed a brick of black pepper smoked tofu I hadn’t done anything with…sitting next to a tall can of beer. My two favourite things…

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…

FIELD TRIP FRIDAY: CHINESE NEW YEAR

GONG HEI FATT CHOI! K….so I’m a little late on the Happy Chinese New Year sentiments…as well as posting my Field Trip Friday. I had all noble intentions of staying in last night, eating some homemade icecream, and posting this ish. However, very last minute I went to hang out in the kitchen and make…

Self Care, Ch-ch-ch-changesssss, and Positive Vibes.

Hope all is well. I’m spending my early Saturday evening slurping soup from last night, the flavours intensified after chilling over night. As I stare out my window, the downtown cityscape quiets down, the darkness sets in, the streetlights turn on. It’s been a strange week; some might even say difficult, but tonight, I feel…
