Easy Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Tofu Breakfast Sandwich (Vegan)

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 is also the secret to the breakfast sandwich of yourRead more

Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Buns With Cream Cheese Frosting (Vegan)

Gooey vegan cinnamon buns with cream cheese frosting.

In our house, Christmas morning has always involved eating cinnamon buns while opening our stockings – there’s something about sticky fingers and wrapping paper (and shiny new gifts) that just works. 🙂  As a kid, my mom’s cinnamon rolls were dripping with golden, cinnamon-y syrup, and studded with raisins – so good!! When I wasRead more

No-Knead Dinner Rolls

These vegan dinner rolls are so tender they melt in your mouth. This rich egg and dairy-free dough can be used as a base for challah, cinnamon buns, or to create farmhouse sandwich loaves.

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 and eggs, the most festive ones usually feature both. TheseRead more

Harvest Veggie Chowder (Vegan/GF Option)

Harvest Vegetable Chowder/Soup (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

When the autumn rains hit, there’s nothing more comforting than a warming bowl of soup loaded with chunky vegetables (except maybe a long bath followed by stretchy pants), so we’ve been eating this one a lot lately. The timing is perfect, as gardens, larders, and farmers markets are bursting with produce just begging to beRead more

Pesto Portobello Burger (Vegan)

Portobello Pesto Burger (Vegan)

Mushrooms are a vegan flavour-seeker’s best friend; their savoury earthiness is a godsend for those craving the comforting richness of stewed meats and broths, but not the meat itself. Even before I became a vegetarian, I was all about the mushrooms; a burger just wasn’t complete without a huge pile of sauteed mushrooms on top.Read more

No Knead Oatmeal Sandwich Bread (Vegan, Oil-Free)

No Knead Oatmeal Bread - Vegan, Oil-Free

Bread is the cornerstone of any good farmhouse kitchen. It’s such a simple thing, made with the most basic of ingredients, but is pivotal to so many of our most memorable family meals. Like rice, corn, potatoes, and other starchy staples, it is the foundation of a healthy, satisfying diet. I started dabbling in breadRead more

Vegan Truck Stop Pancakes

Vegan Truck Stop Pancakes - Whole Grain, Egg and Dairy Free

Vegan truck stop – now that’s an image I enjoy more than I probably should. Having grown up with truck-driving uncles (I’m talking Smokey and the Bandit era truckers), I can’t help but laugh at the thought of them pulling in to fuel up at a roadside stop run by vegans. While that’s something I’mRead more

Tangy Cheddar Sauce for Nachos (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil Free)

Cheese Sauce for Nachos - Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free

To say that I love nachos would be an understatement. Corn chips are arguably the perfect snack food, and if you smother that deliciousness with refried beans, some good salsa, and a mountain of cheese, you’d be hard pressed to find anything I enjoy more. I’ve tried many variations over the years, not only becauseRead more

Sheep-Free Haggis (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

Sheep Burns Supper Veggie

I’ve never had a traditional haggis. Call me crazy, but I prefer sheep in their original packaging. So what’s a good Scottish girl to do when her favourite January reason for feastin’ rolls around? Veggie haggis, of course! Burns Suppers are something we started doing with our kids back when we were home schooling. We wouldRead more

11 Tips for Easing the Transition to a Plant-Based Diet

Tips for Easing the Transition to a Plant-Based/Vegan Diet

Are you thinking about reducing the amount of meat, eggs, and dairy you eat? Limiting your intake of these things is sure to benefit you physically, but it’s not always an easy adjustment to make, mentally. I have several friends and family members who have been told to adopt a plant-based diet for a varietyRead more
