Did anyone else just eat an insane amount of carbs during quaratine? I won’t lie, I spent a lot of the time baking bagels, cinnamon buns, bread (I was already on that bandwagon before it was quarantine cool), lots of pasta, potatoes…if it was carby, I was into it.

Cheddar & Onion Pierogi

Pierogi are delicious. They’re creamy, carbie, cheesy, and super versatile. You can do so much with them. One of my favourite ways to eat them is when we eat them for breakfast while we’re camping. They’re delicious with eggs, bacon and ketchup. Although, when we make that, we’re using frozen pierogi’s, not these delicious hand crafted ones! These aren’t complicated to make. It’s a simple … Continue reading Cheddar & Onion Pierogi

I’ve been spoiled and have grown up travelling there…a lot (thank you gramma and gramps for smart investing!) and we have our own routine…or traditions when we’re there. One of our traditions is our Maui breakfast. Fresh fruit, cottage cheese, toast and maybeee a mimosa or two. Buttttt … Continue reading Citrusy Curry Tofu (Vegan)

I spent last week in snowy Kelowna with my family, and it was perfect! As per norm, it was full of snowboarding, games, wine, martinis and delicious, comforting vegan food (and a few bites of cheese 😉 ).
