Baked Rosemary Ricotta Dip

During our last Costco adventure, I bought a massive tub of Ricotta for a lasagna I was making. I ended up using very little of it, and I HATE wasting cheese, that’s just such a tragedy. My mom and her friends (my “aunts”) had their “knitting night”…and I use the term knitting night LOOSELY …at my apartment last night so I had the perfect opportunity … Continue reading Baked Rosemary Ricotta Dip

Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

In a brave effort to host eight people for Sunday dinner at my apartment I tried to keep things as easy and make ahead as possible. With the oven full (and not to mention my apartment is 3 million degrees…with the fan on), there was no room or desire to make a hot appetizer. I’m so glad you’re here because the tapenade is good. I … Continue reading Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

Olive di Casino Royale (Fried Olives – Vegan)

I know I haven’t posted in a while…I’m sorry all my faithful followers! It’s been crazy lately. I was away on a family ski trip, I was sick, and I’m moving next weekend…so needless to say I have my hands full! My kitchen has been totally packed up ready for the move, so I don’t even have a fork or knife, but thankfully I have … Continue reading Olive di Casino Royale (Fried Olives – Vegan)

Olive Stuffed Jalapenos (Vegan)

My snowy week away with friends and family is over, and we have only a few weeks until our next snowy ski/boarding trip with my aunt and uncle, which means that Gord will once again be busting out fantastic vegan recipes. I’ve never been so full in my life as I was staying at their house. When we weren’t shredding up on the mountain, we … Continue reading Olive Stuffed Jalapenos (Vegan)

Vegan Triangle Puffs

Gord originally made these on our ski trip to Manning park last year. I couldn’t for the life of me remember how he made them. So instead of asking him, like a normal person, I brought up Vegan sausages to Kelowna and asked if we could make them, and yayyy we did! We ate these for lunch with our quick vegan pea soup (link attached) and … Continue reading Vegan Triangle Puffs

Brie in Pastry (Vegetarian)

This one seems self -explanatory, right? Take a wheel of brie, add your favourite jam and goodies into it, bake…and BAM…stellar appetizer with minimal prep! The most difficult part is remember to take out the puff pastry (best to defrost overnight in the fridge)…and waiting for it get all melty in the oven. It’s not uncommon for my BFF and I to sit down and … Continue reading Brie in Pastry (Vegetarian)
