Pesto Lentil Stir Fry in Oven Baked Tomatoes

Pesto Stuffed Tomatoes

One of the most vivid memories from my sister’s wedding this year was my amazing and custom-made vegan dinner! (Besides losing some major tooth enamel while my daughter had a melt down during the vows…)

It was pretty simple but it was incredible, like I would do bad things to have it again. I figured it couldn’t be that hard to make so I set out to re-create the baked tomatoes with cooked veggies…

Vegan Laksa

I wanted to call this post ‘White People Laksa’ because I made so many changes to the original recipe that it’s more ‘Laksa-inpired’ than actual Laksa. But I figured that might be offensive. So maybe ‘Laksa Fusion’? Isn’t that the PC way of calling something white-washed? Am I even allowed to say that? No matter, you will understand when you read the rest of this post.

I bought some rice noodles…

Text 7 Jul My Juice Cleanse
Vegan Juice Cleanse

I felt I was starting to develop some unhealthy habits and since I’m still trying to feel like my pre-baby self I figured I would try a juice cleanse. It seems to be all the rage on Instagram so I figured I would give it a try. Besides Instagram, I also went to another reliable source for health & nutrition, Pinterest. A 3 day cleanse seemed like a good fit. Rich and I would have one at breakfast…

My cousin Tamara is at a really awesome (I was going to say beautiful but I’m on my second glass of wine and I questioned whether I would use that word if I was on my second glass of water…I digress…) phase of her food journey. (Sorry for the second tangent within a bracket but aren’t we all at some part of our food journey? It’s beautiful…HA I did it!)

Anyways, she’s looking to broaden her…

Mango Pineapple Peach Curry

Fruity Vegan Curry

Cooking curry in my apartment for my two friends was a bad idea. If you’ve been to my place in the summer (and you’d remember), you’d know that it’s f–king hot. Like makeup-melting hot. Throw in a hot stove, spicy food, and three people plus a baby breathing in the humid air and it’s a recipe for disaster. My guests were kind enough to say that it wasn’t so bad if they sat on the tiles in the…

I feel like this is something Lizzie would snack on while complaining about how awful Mr. Darcy is. Also can we take a moment to think about what a badass female character she is? I will take Elizabeth Bennett over Bella Swan ANY DAY. I think Elizabeth might be one of the most awesome female characters in literature, with the MEGA AWESOME Lisbeth being a serious contender.

Ok sorry, I nerded out…

Pasta with Preserved Lemons

Those of you that follow me on Instragram (which is you right?) know that I was pretty pumped to make some preserved lemons a while ago but I wasn’t really sure what to do with them. Although they are pretty!

They’re really easy to make too, you basically cut up some meyer lemons, rub some sea salt in them and then fill the jar up with more lemon juice. Then pop them in the fridge for 3 weeks…

Fruity Vegan Tacos

The fruit this time of year is so fantastic, I like to hit the produce section with no idea of what I’m going to make and then figuring it out when I get home and unpack my loot. It was another day where Grandma had Linden so I didn’t have much time to prep or make anything complicated, time was ticking!

I love mango in my burritos and on my veggie burgers so I decided to amp it up with some…

GF Vegan Carrot Muffins

It seems like pretty much everyone I know is having a baby or had one in the last couple of months and the majority of them are baby girls! It’s a pretty special time for me because it gives me an excuse to bake/cook for them and they really can’t say no. When else will your loved ones be so desperate for a fresh meal that they’ll eat whatever you give them no questions asked??

I have a couple…

Vegan Fruit Tart

In less than 3 weeks my sister is getting MAWEEED!

Today was her wedding shower and she’s a fan of fruit tart like cakes so I wanted to give a vegan version a try. It still blows my mind that cashews can create desserts that are so fantastically delicious.

I used my regular pie recipe for the crust (but cut the measurements in half)…
