Oatmeal Earl Grey and Lavender Sandwich Cookies

Okay, okay, I can only take credit for half of this recipe. The other half – the Earl Grey Lavender London Fog Gelato – is made by my favourite CANADIAN company – Righteous Gelato. This stuff is GOLD, so why not sandwich it between two cookies?! YUM. I’ve always loved baking, but as we all…

Creamy Vegan Mushroom Rigatoni

There was one time in my life when I hated mushrooms. Can you even believe that? What was I thinking. Now I love those little fungi so much. That’s why I had to dedicate this pasta to them – to say I’m sorry for a lifetime of neglect, and it won’t happen again. One thing…

Hot and Sweet Cauliflower Wings

Story time with Kelly: Way back in the day, before I knew anything about cooking, I tried to fry food at home. I was in university and I can’t recall what I was making, but I can recall almost burning the house down. I put a pot of oil on the stove and waited. And…

Middle Eastern Orzo Pilaf

What happens when the Middle East meets the Mediterranean? Only the greatest of things! Okay, I am in love with all flavours of all regions of the world (literally), but Middle Eastern…AND Italian?! Two heavyweights in the culinary world and I’m here for it! Like a hundo P’s. Let me break down this fusion for…

Roasted Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Crouton Skewers

What’s better than tomato soup and grilled cheese when the weather starts to get chilly?! Here’s a hint: It starts with “n” and ends with “othing.” Tomato season is over where I am from, but soup season is just beginning, so I had to grab one more batch of fresh tomatoes to use to make…

Pumpkin and Kale Pizza

Mmmhm, yup. You read it right. Pumpkin pizza, baby. And, it’s damn good! When an ingredient comes into season, you better believe I overdo it. Every. Single. Time. But seriously, that’s what we are supposed to do, right?! Eat local, eat seasonal. For our country, for our health. The greatest part of this pizza is…

Channeling my inner Rihanna and bringing yah that cake, cake, cake, cake. Vegan cake, cake, cake, cake. That’s right…Eggless, milkless, and as a bonus – glutenless! No bad foods allowed. A perfect Thanksgiving dessert for the upcoming long weekend! This cake takes minutes to put together, minutes to bake, and seconds to eat. It is…

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

We don’t buy our pumpkin puree, nah, we make our own! Because, why not?! Have you ever seen homemade pumpkin puree? It’s a completely different colour than the one from the can, and you know what that means. Less guck. The puree from the store often includes preservatives, such as sugar and salt, so I…

Sweet Potato Fries

It’s the simple things in life. Reading a book outside in the warm weather. Sippin’ cocoa by the fire. Dipping sweet potato fries in my Good-on-Everything Green Sauce. Livin’ for it. This is a simple recipe. Simple, yet impactful. It took me a while to nail sweet potato fries. They are tricky little buggers. But,…

Gluten Free Crepes with an Apple Cinnamon Compote

I was recently sent a soup maker in the mail. It has become one of my favourite small appliances because of it’s versatility and ease of use. What does that have to do with these crepes, you ask? I made them in it. It’s not just a soup maker, peeps, and you can find it…
