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)

Tahini Harvest Bowl

Nope, I didn’t hurt myself. I was Dwight Schrute-ing it last night. If you don’t know what that means you should go look up who Dwight Schrute is, I bascially looked like this last night: Meaning that like Dwight, I wouldn’t be allowed in any fancy stores for safety concerns. “I’m a beet farmer, you idiot!” I’m actually not a beet farmer though. But I do like beets, and I … Continue reading Tahini Harvest Bowl

Caprese Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Growing up I HATED mushrooms. That’s not even an exaggeration. If they were even anywhere near my food, I wouldn’t eat it. I didn’t do the whole “just pick them out” thing, I flat out refused because they’ve already touched the other food. And don’t even bother trying to hide them, I would know. “I can still taste them!!”. There were many many untouched plates of food and fights … Continue reading Caprese Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

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
