Tomato, Strawberry and Basil Sorbet (from The Best Homemade Vegan Cheese & Ice Cream Recipes)

Tomato Strawberry Basil Sorbet from Vegan Ice Cream

In my garden, the tomatoes are still producing strong! I planted heritage varieties of Chadwick Cherry tomatoes, a sweet, plump, slightly larger cherry tomato size than the norm, as well as Black Seaman tomatoes, a large, bigger-than-your-hand, dark red-purple tomato. I found these tomatoes had trouble ripening evenly, with lots of cracking with our summer […]

Soothing Oven-Stewed Pears Infused in Tea (vegan, free of gluten & dairy)

Oven-Poached Pears

My motto for the holidays is straight-forward and always the same: keep it simple. Keep it simple, simple, simple.  That extends to business events, outings with friends and family, holiday parties, and naturally, it also extends to food. Earlier this fall, The Honest Leaf in Toronto sent me samples of three of their tea blends […]

Meghan’s Rawmazing Key Lime Pie (dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free, gluten-free and raw)

In cooking, as in life, we sometimes make mistakes we can’t undo. Maybe we add way more salt than a stew needs, maybe we substitute sugar for salt in our favourite gluten-free muffin recipe, or maybe it’s forgetting a key ingredient that just “makes” the dish what it is. Fortunately, I didn’t make any mission […]

Vegan Strawberry Banana Coconut Soft Serve (vegan/dairy-free & no ice cream maker needed)

Vegan Strawberry Banana Coconut Soft Serve

I have some sad news, friends: we’re coming up on the tail end of our local strawberry season around here so you better get yours before they’re gone. If you can find organic strawberries, all the better (and all the rarer, in my experience) because this fruit is unfortunately heavily sprayed. In fact, strawberries are […]

Cooking with Tiger Nuts (and a recipe for Pink Lemonade Bars)

Tiger Nut Pink Lemonade Bars

A few years ago I had a pretty disappointing experience with food. In fact, I flew halfway across the world in search of a particular local delicacy… and I never did taste it or even lay eyes on it. Such a disappointment for a local food lover like me!   My Zealous Search for Tiger […]

Party Time Dessert Pizza (dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan friendly)

Dairy-free, gluten-free Party Time Dessert Pizza 1

It’s Friday! And you know what that means, don’t you? That’s right, it’s p-a-r-t-y time! To be a bit more specific, it’s Party Time Dessert Pizza time! (In hindsight, that’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?) Admittedly, I feel like no party is ever complete without pizza so it’s pretty easy for me to think of […]

Late Summer Peach & Almond Porridge (gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegan)

Hey guys, it’s been 37 days since I last posted a breakfast recipe and since you know how much I adore breakfast, I figured it was high time for another! This is a sweet easy late summer breakfast porridge, it’s mostly raw (if you use raw almonds), and there’s no cooking involved. It also consists […]
