Vegan Chickpea Brownies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Once in a while you just need a sweet treat. For me that means anything with chocolate. These brownies are a healthier version yet don’t compromise the chewiness and rich flavour brownies should have. There’s only 2 of us at home so eating an entire tray is out of the question.

Tea & Tarot Time : A Recipe for Thumbprint Jam Cookies

On Wednesday there was a Full Blood Moon with an Eclipse said to bring changes (including the weather). A storm came in from the Pacific drenching the coast; I never complain about the rain as it’s what keeps our temperate forests lush and green. I invited my sister over for Tea & Tarot. We hung…

Turkey, Leek and Mushroom Pie

I stepped out on this gorgeous sunny November day to pick up stocking stuffers. I like to start my Christmas shopping early so that by the time the shops get busy, I’m done and able to indulge in a cozy month long Christmas movie marathon.   It was so much colder yesterday but today it…
