Vegetarian Pan Stuffing

This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d share one of the recipes that has been a hit with our family. Being a vegetarian, I kinda throw things for a loop, so I found this amazing vegan stuffing that’s… Continue Reading →

Vegetarian vs. Chicken: Flexitarian Enchiladas

When I was little, my dad had a health scare and needed to eat more low-fat and low-cholesterol food. He also went on big cooking/baking sprees when I was a kid, leaving the kitchen a disaster zone, much to my… Continue Reading →

Poached Salmon Pâté with Dill :: Recipe

My boyfriend’s brother really loves to cook, but the only person in his family who likes salmon is their mom. As she doesn’t live here yet, I got to be the taste tester and sous chef when PO decided to… Continue Reading →

Cranberry Orange Muffins with Oats & Applesauce :: Recipe

I had leftover applesauce from Hanukkah, and it (unfortunately) wasn’t the nice homemade stuff. It was basic, store-bought, unsweetened applesauce. And because I prefer savoury latkes with sourcream and chives, there was most of a jar left over. I decided… Continue Reading →

Scone Success with Homemade Clotted Cream :: Recipe

Don’t you hate it when you buy a bunch of obscure (or at least not typical to your household) ingredients for a recipe, and then plans change? This is how I ended up with buttermilk, mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, and… Continue Reading →

Hazelnut Truffles = Homemade Ferrero Rocher

Every Christmas, my boyfriend and his brothers make chocolates. They make rum balls and Nanaimo Bars, and then Tiramisu and Chocolate Cake with a Rum/Brandy/Coffee-soaked sponge base. This year, I asked to add a new chocolate to the mix: hazelnut… Continue Reading →

Vegetarian Korma in the Slow Cooker :: Recipe

I love the flavours of Indian cooking, but I cannot handle the heat of the spices. After researching different types of mild curry, I decided to try my hand at cooking a vegetarian korma. I combined a couple of different… Continue Reading →

Carrot-Orange Bran Muffins :: Recipe

I’ve been craving carrot-orange muffins since I saw them at Tim Horton’s a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, everything at Tim Horton’s seems to be loaded with sugar, so I decided to make my own. These carrot-orange muffins are made with… Continue Reading →

Carrot Ginger Soup :: Recipe

This fat-free vegan-friendly recipe will make any soup lover’s tummy smile. I combined a couple recipes to create this bad boy: a carrot-coriander soup that called for milk to make it creamy, and a butternut squash soup with ginger that… Continue Reading →

Fall Festival Recipe Exchange

My Friend Amy recently came up with this idea to celebrate autumn and all the great foods that go with it. I have to say that Autumn and Spring are my favourite seasons (I can never decide which I like… Continue Reading →

Starbucks-style Pumpkin Spice Loaf :: Recipe

I love the Pumpkin Spice Loaf that Starbucks seasonally releases. I searched the internet everywhere, and literally tons of websites claimed that this recipe was “thee” Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Loaf. WRONG. I tried so many recipes, and had tons of… Continue Reading →

Blackberries

A few weeks ago when I joined Julia at the Steveston Knitting Meetup, one of the gals (Petra, psophia17 on Ravelry) brought these delicious blueberry crumble bars. They are to die for. She posted the recipe link on the Terminal… Continue Reading →

The Golden Compass

Monday we went to see The Golden Compass. CW and I enjoyed it but agreed that it wasn’t very conclusive because it’s supposed to be a trilogy. I was sad there wasn’t more Daniel Craig. I told CW about the… Continue Reading →

Dinner anyone?

Doesn’t this dinner look gorgeous? I made Oven-Roasted Vegetables and pies for dinner tonight. Before I left home, I borrowed all of my mom’s cookbooks & clips that I liked and photocopied all the recipes I wanted to make my… Continue Reading →

Fresh Blackberry Pie

On Sunday, before CW and I came back to Vancouver, we went blackberry picking in the back fields at camp. We nearly filled two peanut butter jars full of fresh berries and when we got home, I made pie! I… Continue Reading →
