Roasted Rhubarb Muffins Title1

Rhubarb gets me into a frenzy. Every year it’s the same: those pretty, slender stalks that bear my two favorite colours only visit our vegetable patches for a short while and before you know it, they’ve gone. So I panic, buy loads, try to make the most of them, but I just end up making […]

Gluten-Free + Vegan Recipe | Almond Apricot Coconut Bars

July 15, 2014


 These sticky, sweet, chewy, crunchy wonders are perfect for any summer party you’re going to. I designed the recipe to make 12-16 bars (in a 9×13 pan) so you’d have enough for a crowd. I made them, along with cream cheese brownies and chocolate peanut butter fudge squares, for a baby shower and they were […]

I am a chocolate truffle fiend. No truffle is safe from me – if it’s vegan and it’s made of chocolate, I will eat it. I’ve got a fair collection on my own blog already, from traditional praline truffles to more, shall we say, extravagant ones, but I think I’ve really pushed the boundaries of […]

Gluten-free + Vegan Recipe | Mixed Berry & Rhubarb Quinoa Crumble

June 2, 2014


This might be a bit blasphemous to some, but I tend to prefer a hearty crumble to a pie any day of the week.  I think it’s because I love the combination of hearty grains and juicy, seasonal fruit.  There’s not too much prep work involved with crumbles like there is with a pie.  But, […]

Gluten-free + Vegan Recipe | Almond, Orange + Cardamom Cookies

May 25, 2014


I don’t know if these qualify as “cookies”. In the UK, these would most definitely be biscuits. In French, you would call these “sablés” (“sandy”) because of their crumbly texture. I guess “shortbread” is the appropriate term for these little treats, and you could almost imagine them patiently waiting in a tartan tin box for […]

Vegan + Gluten-Free Recipe | Boozy Berries & Cream

May 13, 2014


For months, my fridge has been stuffed with more strawberries than I know what to do with. I’ve been making chia seed jam and strawberry chocolate parfaits, not to mention slicing those red beauties up on our fresh greens and tossing them in to smoothies. I think I’ve actually come to take for granted that […]

Vegan + Gluten-Free Recipe | Cardamom Roasted Strawberry Bread

May 9, 2014


During strawberry season, my favorite way to eat them is raw.  Hands down.  Sometimes I catch myself at the kitchen sink, popping them in my mouth as fast as I can rinse them off.  If I have a little time on my hands, perhaps on a lazy Sunday, I’ll go the extra step and roast […]

I sometimes joke that I moved to the United Kingdom purely because I’m such a tea fanatic. I really am, though. Last time I moved, my mother was there helping me pack up everything; when we got to the kitchen, she put her foot down: ‘Who needs this much tea?!’ she said, aghast at the […]
