Raw S’Mores (Grain Free, Vegan, Candida-Diet Friendly)

From what I can tell, S’mores are the quintessential “camp” food. What child hasn’t eaten a gooey S’mores bar? Well, dear readers, it’s True Confession time: I am that child who has never eaten a S’mores bar. (Does that make me S’less?)

When I was a kid, summers were a fairly […]

Coconut Crusted Tofu Appetizer Bites with Creamy Green Curry Dipping Sauce

Summer really is the perfect time to throw a party, isn’t it? The weather welcomes outdoor events, quick preparation, colorful foods to adorn backyard tabletops, and people are just generally. . . . happier (okay, so I’m talking about me. In summer, I am generally happier).

Remembering Mom Today

The Girls having a little wrestle-fest in the back yard.

For someone who’s been without her mother for quite a long time (my mum died in 1991), I tend to think about her rather a lot.

Potato-Free Rutabaga Hash Browns

When I was an undergrad, I submitted a short story to the university literary journal, which was edited by my beloved mentor, John Ditsky (I guess on some level, since we’d already become friends by then and he’d always encouraged my writing, I kind of “knew” he’d publish the story). It […]

So, where the heck have I been this past week? It feels like a long time since I last posted on this blog. In reality, it’s only been since last Thursday’s Wellness Weekend. Even […]

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

So here’s a scenario from my an imaginary 20-something woman’s life:

Let’s say this woman just got a job teaching as a sessional instructor at a large college in a large North American city. She’s very keen to do well on the job and practice all she’s learned about pedagogy.

Chai Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Maker Required!)

[Smooth, creamy. . . and oh so easy!]

I’m so glad it’s ice cream season again, aren’t you? Not because it coincides with climbing temperatures (though the 25C (78F) and sunny days are certainly welcome). Not because it means the HH and I can bring The Girls down to […]

Go Ahead, Indulge: Baked Millet-Squash Porridge

[How to indulge on a Sunday morning.]

Recently, a friend emailed me a link to this interview with Bel Kaufman (author of the legendary novel Up the Down Staircase). What struck me most about Kaufman (apart from the fact that she’s still vibrant and joking at 100), was her […]
