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Gord originally made these on our ski trip to Manning park last year.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

Happy Friday! It’s been a long week, hasn’t it? If you’re one of my parents lucky dinner guests this weekend then you get to look forward to a massive lasagne dinner tomorrow night. Among the classics will be one that I made with this vegan red pasta sauce, which in my opinion, is delightful.  I’m not a big meat eater in my day to day, … Continue reading Vegan Red Pasta Sauce

Thai Peanut Curry (Vegan)

My favourite Thai place doesn’t deliver anymore, and even when they did, there was a $35 minimum, which is a lot when it’s only you and your wine, but I really only ate the curry anyways and it turns out it’s super easy to make! Also when I make it at home, I don’t have to pay extra for rice (what a rip off, eh!) … Continue reading Thai Peanut Curry (Vegan)

Schwarties Potatoes

I friggen LOVE potatoes…all kinds of potatoes…and these are honestly the easiest potatoes ever to make, there’s no chopping or cooking beforehand, everything gets mixed together and then baked. We’ve been eating these as long as I can remember and I used to stash a container of them away during dinner when no one was looking, just in case. The recipe is originally from Best … Continue reading Schwarties Potatoes

Pistachio Mint Pesto (vegan optional)

I really failed at growing basil this summer. Hard fail. I couldn’t compete with my moms exploding basil plants. My mint on the other hand went crazy, which was great, because mint is delicious in everything, but I found out this week that it’s especially delicious in pesto! It’s a nice shake up from traditional basil-pine nut pesto. It’s light, lemony and the pistachios make it a bit creamy! … Continue reading Pistachio Mint Pesto (vegan optional)

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)
