Chai Spiced Hot Cross or Tea Buns (Vegan)

Chai Spiced Hot Cross or Tea Buns (Vegan)

I’ve been wanting to create a vegan hot cross bun for a while now, and I thought, heck, why not make them a little bit special while I was at it? This recipe combines two of our old favourites: my world famous (well, maybe just 

Eggy Seasoning

Eggy Seasoning

There are a lot of great egg substitutes out there, but they can be expensive and hard to find. We’ve found that basic ingredients, such as tofu and chickpeas, are excellent stand-ins for eggs, and this simple seasoning elevates them even further, reducing the need 

Basic No-Knead Bread

Basic No-Knead Bread

I’ve already posted my favourite No-Knead Oatmeal Bread recipe, but I thought I would also share my super quick base recipe that I use either totally on its own, or as a jumping off point for various flavoured loaves. I most often use it to 

Easy Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Easy Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

This has become one of our all time favorite breakfasts. We’ve tried all kinds of egg replacers since removing eggs from our diet – some of them are excellent, but they can be expensive or hard to find. Happily, it turns out the simplest alternative 

Chickpea Tuna

Chickpea Tuna

One of the things I missed most after going vegan was canned tuna. It was such an easy thing to add to sandwiches, casseroles, and pasta – I would even eat it on its own on crackers or in salads. However, being at the top

Irish Soda Bread (Vegan)

No-Knead Dinner Rolls

No-Knead Dinner Rolls

Our holidays almost always include at least one incarnation of a rich, decadent bread, and that’s often in the form of a decorative wreath or braid, Christmas morning cinnamon buns, or soft and buttery dinner rolls. While it’s totally possible to make bread without milk 

Farmhouse Scones and Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan)

Farmhouse Scones and Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan)

Every farmhouse kitchen needs a basic scone recipe, and this one is as good as they come. I’ve made others over the years that are perhaps more impressive due to their various embellishments (debatable), but this one is perfect for showcasing homemade jams and spreads, 

Nutritional Yeast Salad Dressing (Low Oil)

Nutritional Yeast Salad Dressing (Low Oil)

I’ve never been a fan of store-bought dressings; they’re often too sweet, too fatty, or just plain boring. The only exception is a local one made by Little Creek, which was our go-to for a long time. That is, until I discovered the recipe for 

Eggless Benedict

Eggless Benedict

Eggless Benedict? I know it sounds a little crazy to attempt to recreate a recipe without using the featured ingredient (I mean, it’s right there in the name!), but what if you don’t want to eat eggs, or can’t for health reasons, or your feathered
