Egg Yolk Ravioli


No, this isn’t vegan. It’s definitely a special occasion type of dish. For brunch. And it’s well worth the time and effort! Continue reading Egg Yolk Ravioli

Blueberry Oat Muffins for four


Because sometimes you only want a small batch. Because you only want to make enough that will last a few days, or as a snack to take to work, or just to simply eat a couple.

While I enjoy making a whole tray of muffins, sometimes they’re just left to go stale, or no one eats them all (correction: I don’t eat them all), or you forget about them…

Vegan Earl Grey & Orange Scones


When I used to work for Starbucks, I hated earl grey tea. As a barista, we needed to try all drinks in order to be able to recommend  pairings. I couldn’t stand the peppery taste of earl grey (what I taste prominently), and wasn’t the fondest of the London Fog drink. Fast forward 7 years, and now I love the drink and the tea.

Vegetarian Quiche


I’ve always been a lover of brunch, so I’m constantly looking for new recipes to make for lunch. Waffles has been a staple, as has been crepes. My best friend came over, and I suggested we could cook the meal at home. This time, I wanted to try my hand at quiche, since I don’t recall ever doing it on my own. Plus, who doesn’t like a good hearty quiche – packed with protein from the eggs, and wonderful veggies, and a delicious crust. Continue reading Vegetarian Quiche

Gluten-Free Zucchini Pancakes


Hopefully you guys remember my carrot cake waffles recipe from awhile back. Even though I haven’t had waffles in a while, I wasn’t really in the mood to bring out the waffle iron…it takes a lot of cleaning, and I’m the laziest person as you recall in my last post 😛

Since I hadn’t made any pancakes in a while, I thought I would post a recipe. You could say that this pancake recipe is inspired by carrot cake, only using zucchini as the star ingredient. Continue reading Gluten-Free Zucchini Pancakes

Cardamom & Rosewater Biscotti


What day is it today? I turn 25. Quarter century. Where is the time flying?

I don’t have any birthday-themed recipe today, although I am having an afternoon bbq tomorrow, and I am making the full menu 🙂 Perhaps there will be some recipes I will share later on.

Yup, so I’m still going on about the cardamom & rosewater flavour combination. I started going through a phase where I was putting it in my oatmeal (YUM!), and making more donuts. This time? I was inspired to make biscotti. Continue reading Cardamom & Rosewater Biscotti
