My (Vegan) Version Of Zuppa Toscana.

Flipping through my recipe books that I got for Christmas today, I came across this delicious soup.  A classic Tuscan Winter dish, it’s loaded with potatoes and hearty sausage. Just because I cook vegan doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy this seriously cozy meal. With a few small tweaks, I created a just-as-hearty Zuppa Toscana with…

Non Dairy Cream Of Mushroom Soup

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” ―  Albert Einstein One of my favourite things about Wintertime is comfort food cooking.  The slow cooker takes centre stage on the counter and the crock pot gets to shine. It’s…

Tumeric Roasted Cauliflower Soup

“To feel safe and warm on a cold wet night, all you really need is soup.” It seems the rain has subsided to a drizzle. Its 10:04 pm and the rain came down, fitfully, fiercely most of the day.  I was grateful to be in the dry warmth of my car after running from my…

Last week we watched the documentary The Game Changers, a film about  how consuming a plant based diet has helped enhance the performance of elite athletes from the NFL to MMA.  It reminded me how important it is to feed our bodies fuel for optimal health & stamina.  Food that won’t weigh us down but…

Thai Peanut Curry Chicken

Tonight I thought I’d share an old recipe I found in a binder where I used to keep all of my menu plans and dishes. This was before Pinterest where, at the click of a mouse you have any recipe at your disposal. It’s been really windy and rainy yesterday and today. Remnants I’ve heard,…
