Vegan Supper Club: Fine Dining at Home

Vegan Supper Club #10 | Fine Dining at Home
Though the components of this meal were somewhat haphazardly & randomly decided upon, they came together in such a way that made our simple Saturday night dinner seem sophisticated and restaurant worthy. Yes, this tenth (!!) edition of Chelsea’s & my Vegan Supper Club might go down as one of the best ones yet!
Starter: Super Slaw
For the salad portion of our meal, we made the Super Slaw […]

Mix n Match Dinner Bowls

Recently Mac & I had some friends over for dinner. I didn’t really know what to make, so I ended up whipping up a bunch of things, piling them all together in a bowl, and calling it dinner! Mix n Match Dinner Bowls to be precise!

The above picture was of my leftovers the following day. Don’t worry, we do actually serve food to our friends & guests in proper bowls & plates and not Tupperware!

Whether […]

Post-Vacation Meals – Quick, Easy & Inexpensive! (+ How To!)

When Mac & I got back from Barbados, there was practically nothing left in our fridge. Save for a few apples, a head of cabbage, and some sorry daikon radishes, we didn’t have much to eat! After a quick trip to the grocery store – where I spent less than $14! – I came home to whip up the following:

A/ Quinoa. B/ Mixed Vegetable Quiche. C/ Roasted Tandoori Chickpeas. D/ Sweet Potato & Tomato Stew

It’s not super glamorous, […]

Vegan Supper Club: Fall Comforts

Vegan Supper Club #8
Another month, another supper club! Chelsea and I were at it again, and this time our Vegan Supper Club was all about the flavours and comforts of fall.

My apologies for the dark & dismal photo quality. Although the flavours of fall are delightful, the early sunsets and associated dark lighting are not. Especially when paired with my less than stellar phone camera.
Fall Comforts
To start the meal off, we made Grilled Miso Apples […]

My Go To Food Blogs for Recipe Inspiration

It’s no surprise that I love to cook. I’m always trying to create new dishes with different flavour combinations, or experimenting with new-to-me ingredients. When I first went vegan in October 2013, I relied heavily on food blogs for new & creative recipes, as well as for inspiration in the kitchen. I’ve rounded up 9 of my go-to food blogs for recipe inspiration where I can usually be guaranteed to find what I’m looking for! Happy cooking!
