Cabbage Rolls, Southwest Scramble, Easy Falafel & Lentil Loaf :)

I’ve been trying to get a post done forever, it feels like. I’ve started one just like this several times but now I’m really starting it with a commitment to finish and post. It’s weird to me that I was continuously half finishing a post and then something would always pull me away and I…

Big Macs, Faux Tuna Salad & Stew

Happy Groundhog Day! I really like groundhog day when it comes around each year. I’m excited to hear the groundhogs’ consensus – I guess see it, not so much hear it. Hear it from their human handlers and from the news, I guess is the more accurate way to say that. There are several groundhogs…

Peach Blueberry Cobbler, Vegan Goulash & Thanksgiving Bowl

Summer is finally coming to an end. A very slow, hot, humid and rainy end. That’s alright though, I can dream of fall for a few more weeks until it actually arrives. I brought out my fall scented candles in preparation and I’ve been researching the best vegan pumpkin spiced latte recipes to make at…

Comfort Food Substitutes + Detox Soup (Summer is busy!)

So I was under the impression, as a child, that summer was the time for relaxing. You have this massive surplus of free time to do things such as: lie around in a hammock, run through a sprinkler, sit in the grass and eat some popsicles, or read endless novels. That is really what I…

Ottawa Race Weekend!

First of all – Ottawa Race Weekend was an awesome experience, I would highly recommend participating to anyone. Second – it was HOT AS HELL. While most people wisely stayed near a body of water, ran through sprinklers, or vegged out in an air conditioned space…some crazy 38’000 people decided to do some distance running. …

Hashbrown Casserole, Banana Bread & Energy Balls

In an effort to post more regularly and avoid posts like last time (gigantic list of things) here are just a few things I wanted to share this week. I’m training for my 10K race more regularly now. The weather is being ridiculous so honestly it’s a challenge to get out there. Yesterday I went…

Ready for Spring!

Spring was here in Ottawa, but then there was a snow storm and it went away. Now it might be coming back. That’s the weather of Canada in a nutshell. It’s been a long time, I don’t even know where to start! In fact, I just decided I will write this in several parts so…

Wedding Soup & Valentine’s Cookies <3

It’s finally here – the sometimes loved, sometimes dreaded, Valentine’s Day. This time, it’s an entire weekend. Thankfully, here in Canada (depending on your province) we have Family Day on Monday, to recharge after this weekend of either romance, loathing, or indifference. Some people hate Valentine’s Day, and I get that. But I love to…

Rice Noodle Salad, Cookies & Winterlude!

First recipe from Thug Kitchen done, and oh my god, that was a crazy amount of chopping. I don’t think I’ve chopped that much in my life before. This is what real cooking in adulthood is; endless chopping. I knew it was too easy, what I’d been doing before, this is the real deal. Here’s…

Apple Pie Oatmeal, Chickpea Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

This is the very last recipe I picked from the Oh She Glows cookbook to test out. I really enjoyed challenging myself to try ten recipes from the book, a few of them are definitely keepers that I’m so happy to have now. The chickpea salad and lentil-kale soup in particular, I’ve made each of…

Banana Pancakes, Tropical Smoothie & Blossom Cafe

Well I think I have to say first – thank you for these pancakes, Thug Kitchen. If there’s a better winter morning than eating banana pancakes, drinking coffee, watching The Office in your PJ’s while it lightly snows outside, I’d like to SEE IT. These yummy pancakes are super easy to make. The recipes makes…

Burrrrritos (with cashew cheese!)

Broccoli & Cashew Cheese Quinoa Burritos – I know, that’s a mouthful. So are the burritos, but they are very delicious mouthfuls so it’s all good. The sixth recipe I’ve tried from the Oh She Glows cookbook – four more to go! It turns out, cashew “cheese” sauce is not as terrible as I had…
