Vegan Blackberry and Coriander Ice Cream


So, the day before yesterday marked one year for this blog. I know I missed the actual date, but the holidays can be busy! The year flew by so fast, and with it, I was able to post 83 recipes (or so my blog tells me). Not so bad! Thank you to you guys, who have been following, or who have been visiting and using my recipes for inspiration 🙂

I figured I needed to post a special recipe to mark the year (and end of 2014), so while this isn’t extra special, the flavour of thic ice cream is awesome. Today, I bring to you a vegan blackberry and coriander ice cream. Continue reading Vegan Blackberry and Coriander Ice Cream

Sri Lankan Love Cake


Merry Christmas!! I hope you guys are enjoying the holiday season with lots of food and desserts and presents and more. I apologize for the lack of updates lately – it’s been hectic! Honestly, Christmas came around so quickly, I am not sure where the year went. If you’re still looking for recipes for tonight’s dinner, why not try making some cranberry sauce, or celeriac & parsnip puree (a feature on tonight’s dinner).  Continue reading Sri Lankan Love Cake

No-Bake Rum Balls


The holiday season is just around the corner (10 days?!!?), and that means loads of desserts and chocolates and sweets! Of course, this also means the endless sugar rush that lasts at least until after New Year’s. If you don’t want to continually be eating all those refined sugars, then this recipe is perfect for you (and super quick and easy — and I’m all about that!).

Broccoli & Sweet Potato Soup


I don’t know about you guys, but it’s getting colder. This is a bit relative though, because Vancouver is still much milder compared to the rest of Canada, but it’s cold for us, okay? It’s been a little stormy lately, and we’ve had tons of rain. It has not made me want to go out. However, it is the perfect season for soups!  Continue reading Broccoli & Sweet Potato Soup

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers


I can’t believe we’re already into December. 2014 is ending soon, and 2015 is approaching. Where does the time fly, honestly?Have you thought about your New Year’s resolutions? I don’t really quite believe in them, but I guess they’re more of a goal you set for your self. I think I met this year’s one by eating healthier, keeping fit, and keeping up with this blog – I’d like to say a job well done! Butttt, it doesn’t have to be something you have to set every New Year. It can be whenever you feel like setting a goal, with no particular deadline. Continue reading Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Sorry for the lack of updates lately! It has been a busy semester, but guess what? I’ve finished grad school! I can’t believe the past 2.5 years have gone by so quickly. On to new things now. Still holding out for getting into med school next fall…so no end in schooling yet. I think I’ll forever be a student. Why, you ask? I don’t know.

It’s gotten chilly lately, and we just had our first dusting of snow here in Vancouver (though, it never really stuck… or rather it all melted). With winter fast approaching and fall making its way out, it’s time to get out the soup recipes to keep yourself warm. Since squash and apples are both fall items, I needed to come up with a soup recipe. Continue reading Butternut Squash & Apple Soup
