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…

Garlicky Mashed Cauliflower

Where my keto friends at?! This one’s for you! We are officially entering Fall and that means, Thanksgiving. I’m a lover of enjoying seventy-four side dishes and can always forego the main one. I am always on the hunt for new and fun sides to add to any meal…especially those around the holidays! This mashed…

Gluten-Free Zucchini Galette

Think: flaky, creamy, cheesy, lemony, zucchini-y. All of the good things about a savoury dish brought together into a pretty and rustic galette. If you know me, you know I love a good galette.

Easy Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Do you remember a few years ago when the “Cauliflower Soup Diet” was a thing? I feel like it was a thing. Either way, this cauliflower soup is healthy and you can eat it every day, if you want to! I used my Simple Living Soup Maker to make this soup. If you haven’t heard…

Avocado Croutons

True story: I cut into an avocado that I thought was ready to be mashed onto toast, but it wasn’t. Usually I’m better than this. I struggled with what to do. I knew that if I put it back into the fridge, it wouldn’t ever reach its max potential, as it had already been exposed…

Butternut Squash and Kale Lasagne Roll-Ups

Sometimes I pretend I’m on the show Chopped and I try to use ingredients in an innovative way. Like lasagne noodles for example. Why lay flat, when you can roll, baby. Thaz right. The layers in this lasagne aren’t lookin’ like a sedimentary rock, nuh uh. They are more like a snail shell. Yah feel…

Make-Ahead Vegan Sweet Potato Salad

Here is the perfect plant-based side dish for this year’s lonely Easter dinner. It is perfect because: You can (and should) make it the day before It is 100% vegan It tastes like traditional mayo-based potato salad, but healthier It’s a smaller batch (you should be social distancing!) I love potatoes of all kinds, yet…

Crockpot Ginger and Turmeric Immune-Boosting Soup

Soup. Soupa-doop. Soupa-doopa-doopa-doop. Grab your salt ‘n pepa (get it?!) and let’s finish off this last month of winter with some cozy, comforting, cold-fighting soup! Nineteen. More. Days. Although I love living in a country that experiences four diverse seasons, winter is always way too long. And as a teacher, it’s hard NOT to pick…
