Bridal Shower Desserts

This past Sunday I was honoured to do another catering gig. This time it was for a friend’s bridal shower! Knowing how much I love to cook and bake, my friend got me in touch with her mom and arranged for me to cater her bridal shower desserts. There were about 30 guests, and there was fruit & veggie platters, as well as samosas & spring rolls in addition to my desserts!

Vegan Supper Club: Cook our Books

Vegan Supper Club #11
Chelsea and I have many obsessions in common: cooking, reading about food, making food, eating food… most things food related, actually. We also have a big obsession for cookbooks. With so many of our favourite bloggers-turned-cookbook-authors out there now, it’s easy to get carried away establish a refined collection of swoon-worthy cookbooks.
