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…

Broccoli Salad

WHY IS IT 30 DEGREES OUTSIDE?! I am seriously melting this week, and between the heat and all of the time I’ve spent baking, I am so ready to never turn on my oven again (until next week’s market of course). So at this point, any excuse to eat just salad for a meal is…

Side Dish Saturdays: Warm Quinoa and Wild Rice “Salad”

Happy Saturday darlings! Soooo….I’m kind of cheating because I am kind of eating this “side dish” as a full meal today, but I didn’t want to change Saturdays to SALAD SATURDAYS because reasons. Anyways, this is a little dish I through together while lurking through the cupboards finding something to eat for lunch! Ingredients: 2…

Side Dish Saturdays ft. Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Hi friends! This entry is going to be short and I am going to talk about turning one of the most boring ways to eat a potato into a more exciting way to eat the same potato. When I was a kid, we ate a lot of baked potatoes with our meals. Always a “protein,”…

Rainy Evening Pesto Soup

Hi everyone. I’m sorry I’ve been slow with my Vegan MoFo posts, but truth be told it’s been a bit of a hellish week. GOOD THINGS TO COME THOUGH! All week it was stupid hot and I hadn’t felt like cooking much, then today was super rainy and beautiful. Benson and I are currently having…

Creamy Coconut-sicles (Fudge and Berry Editions)

July has only begun, and my city already experienced its hottest day of the year this week, ew. So, when I woke up today a sweaty monster (I knew you’d love that visual), and found my dog trying to shield himself from the heat underneath my bed, I decided that from THIS DAY FORTH, my…

Gluten Free White Chocolate Pancakes

My city (Calgary) is currently in a state of emergency due to flooding, and I have the Friday off work due to closures. I am safe and sound cuddling my dog, and I trust my fellow Calgarians are safe as well. By updating my blog to talk about awesome pancakes, I hope my local readers…

More Adventures in Allergen Free Baking

As you may have noticed, my interest in gluten free baking and cooking has skyrocketed in the past month or so. This is partially due to the amount of requests I’ve had lately for gluten free fare, but more likely, it is just because I enjoy the challenge. Recently, I was asked to bake a…

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-free Edition. Nut-free too.)

I have never met a gluten-free cookie I liked. Don’t take this personally if you have ever tried to feed me a GFTHING, but I have just never tried anything that fit both of these criteria that I’ve enjoyed. Perhaps it was tasty, but it fell apart too easily for lack of binding. Or didn’t…
