A Nasty Trick for Halloween. . .

Hi Everyone–

Sorry I haven’t been appearing much on these pages of late. Due to a nasty (and I mean nasty) computer virus, I haven’t had access to my computer for over a week. My machine is currently at the shop of Computer Fix-It Guy #4. If he can’t find the source of the problem, […]

Flash in the Pan: No-Bake Caramel Cookie Dough Truffle Balls

[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.

Pumpkin love was in the air for last week’s Wellness Weekend–I guess I can’t deny that autumn is really here. Well, with dishes like the ones you contributed, I guess the fall can’t be all that bad (though I’m not quite ready to say “hello” to winter, yet–ack!).


I Am Thankful For. . . Unconventional Vegan Cassoulet

For someone who considers her typical days to be fairly mundane, it does seem I’ve got quite a soft spot for all things unconventional.

I’d trace this penchant for the eccentric back to my grade six art class with Miss Tarnofsky. Miss T (we all thought it should stand for “Terror”) was the […]


SOS October 2011: Autumn Fruit Crumble

I grew up in a home where my two sisters and I learned to bake before our birthdays hit the double digits. Before we learned to read, before we wore a training bra, before we could drive a car, we were baking. As young as four or five, we’d be enlisted […]


Wellness Weekend October 13-17, 2011

I hope everyone had a great Canadian Thanksgiving last weekend (even if you’re not Canadian–we Canucks are generous that way). 😉

As always, I was amazed by the variety and creativity of the recipes you submitted last week. I’ve decided to go with a different, specific theme […]


Spiced Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread

Ah, nothing like a short work week, is there? Hope those of you who celebrated on Monday had a great Thanksgiving! (And hope everyone else had a good weekend, short as it was!).

I can’t wait to tell you all about the phenomenal Thanksgiving Vegan Cassoulet I made for The HH […]
