Living the Loca Vida Vegan: Creamy Pasta with Almond Feta and Broccoli Rabe

We just got through a crazy weekend, all right: first it was Hurricane Irene pelting the East Coast (hope everyone affected came out safe! My poor cousin CBC is still without power, for the second day in a row. . . looks like it will be another day or two until […]


Wellness Weekend August 25-29, 2011

We’re down to the last weekend in August, which here in Toronto means lots of kids getting geared up for school, as many BBQs as you can possibly squeeze in at the last minute, and maybe one more use of that sleeveless white tank top. For our friends in the antipodes, it means […]


Flash in the Pan: Chocolate Bean Butter

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at […]


Corn + Corn + Corn = Pancakes*

*Or, Corn Cubed Pancakes

*Or, You Don’t Need Math to Enjoy These Pancakes

[Unadorned corny goodness, tall and proud.]

I was one of those students who always did pretty well in math even though I didn’t understand most of it. In other words, I was a good memorizer. […]


Winners of Nutra-Vege Omega 3 Oils (and a Pancake Sneak Peek!)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was filled with about 200 exams to mark. . . luckily, there were also some wonderful eats (see below), including more salad dressing made with my Nutra-Vege entirely animal-free Omega 3 oil. I’m so glad that you all seem as excited about it as […]


Wellness Weekend August 18-22, 2011

I gasped a little when I wrote that date up there in this post’s title–so close to the end of August, already?? It’s hard to believe how quickly the summer has whizzed by here in Toronto. Well, we’ve still got lots of warm weather left before winter, so I plan to […]


Chocolate Covered Fudgesicles (Sugar free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Vegan)

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you likely know a few things about me already: I adore my Girls (and you’re not too shabby, either, HH); I abhor winter and all its accoutrements (and–*sob*–it is just around the corner!); though it’s been many years, I still harbor resentment […]


Giveaways Gone Wild IV: My New Favorite Source of Omega 3’s (and Raw Sweet Potato and Greens Slaw)

[As I mentioned last time, I’m thrilled beyond words that my cookbook, Sweet Freedom, is one of only three cookbooks recommended on Ellen DeGeneres’s new “Going Vegan with Ellen” page! If you’ve had success with the recipes or if you have the book and like it, please hop over and leave a comment to let […]


Wellness Weekend August 11-15

I hope everyone is taking full advantage of summer weather here in the northern hemisphere–it’s been amazing here in Toronto! And it sure seems as if you are all making good use of the summer produce before it’s all gone. There were loads of fabulous fresh recipes in last week’s roundup. […]


Chinese Scallion Pancakes: The Remake

The other evening, my friend Eternal Optimist and I went to see a movie (Friends with Benefits–surprisingly enjoyable, and I even liked Justin Timberlake in it!). We both love watching the trailers before the film, but what struck us this time was how many of them were actually promoting remakes of […]
