Pear, Apple & Grape Crumble

Sweets, mmm…. I have a big sweet tooth. Before my dietary transition, I would indulge in pastries (French, preferably), cookies, cakes, ice cream, you name it! One of the biggest misconception about a plant-based diet is that you have to deprive yourself of anything and everything tasty and delicious, especially in the desserts compartment. That […]

Almond Butter & Strawberry Breakfast Toast

As the season is changing and mornings are definitely colder, I find myself craving warm and hearty breakfasts. In fact, I secretly love cold mornings because they give me an excuse to indulge in dessert-like breakfasts. This simple, yet very tasty, toast is a perfect example. Growing up we never really had any nut butters […]

Pumpkin Spice Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

October 21st. (It’s been way too long since my last post!) My birthday was yesterday. I am a year older. The air is getting crispier. The light is softening into warm yellow tones. And as the trees are turning a vibrant red, Autumn is officially settling in… Time flies. Which means this recipe is well […]

Mango & Black Bean Tacos – 2 Ways

Growing up we used to have taco nights – DIY style. There would be a bunch of bowls laid out on the table: one containing ground beef, another with shredded cheese, one filled with lettuce, a smaller one with salsa, another containing diced tomatoes and a last one with sour cream. And then there would be […]

Quick & Easy Lunch: The Avocado Toast

Sooooo… avocado toasts, eh? (Apparently I still have a little bit of Canadian in me.) Not sure what the big deal is but they’re popping everywhere! Literally, everywhere. I understand why people think they’re so good – let’s face it, bread and avocado together is genius – but this recent avocado-mania is beyond me. As […]

Spinach Salad // Zucchini, Tomato & Avocado

My sister left to Italy last night. She’s moving there for two years to study a Master’s program. Although I am used to her and I living apart, we’ve spent quite a lot of time together for the past three months. So naturally I feel a little disoriented today. In fact, I thought she was […]

Apple Muffins

Today is my stepfather’s birthday!!! Even though his introduction into my life when I was nine wasn’t a very smooth one, my stepdad has become a huge part of my life! He’s taught me not pick a carrot from a plate at a potluck and then put it back because it looked deformed. He also helped […]

Blueberry Banana Pancakes

Pancakes…oh, pancakes! One of my earliest memories moving to the US at the age of five, was eating pancakes on Sunday mornings. It soon became a ritual. My dad would play Queen’s “We are the champions” on the stereo and then let me help him prepare the batter. It makes me cringe a little to […]

Spanish Gazpacho

It is SO HOT here. And humid. I’m not going to complain, I love heat. I’ll take a warm climate over a cold one any day. The problem is I’m a little tired of eating salads for lunch everyday. And that’s a big statement for me to say because I consider myself the Salad Queen. […]
