My Vegan Future

I’m going to get serious for a moment. Most of you who know me probably read that sentence as sarcasm and are awaiting a hilarious gif. Sadly, you will be disappointed. This is a bit of a long story but here goes. While I was a teenager I found a passion for animal welfare, environmental…

Dill Parsley Pasta with Sunflower Seeds and Walnuts

How’s everyone’s New Year’s resolutions going? I’m still not drinking coffee and the world seems less bright, beautiful, and full of hope. Other than that 2017 is going pretty well! Everyone I know seemed to have recognized that we were all operating at a higher frequency during the holidays and maybe we needed to unwind a…

Fried Eggplant Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Garlic

My poor, poor neglected blog. Where do I even begin? We’re going to get sincere for a moment here. My life has changed, I’ve changed, and everything around me has shifted. It’s been almost 5 months since I quit my job and started my own company with my business partner. Meaning our success, our schedules,…

Spicy Tomato Cashew Soup

I find making a quick soup from scratch is an easy solution and fun activity for a toddler who’s acting like they just found and ate a Red Bull lollipop. I’m getting the very last of the veggies from our garden which meant Linden and I grabbed a few ripe tomatoes and herbs and had…

Introducing my new business!

It has been an intense few weeks that have flown by and although I’ve been cooking a ton, I haven’t been formally experimenting in the kitchen so apologies for no new recipes! My partner and I have officially launched our new business, Piquant Marketing and it’s thrilling, nerve-wracking, exhausting, and a ton of work. It’s absolutely a…

Zucchini Pizza with Beet Sauce and Pumpkin Seeds

I recently discovered that one of my friends has a knack for growing monster food. She may spend her weekends posing with them at markets, claiming 1st prize in the categories of ‘Veggies That Belong in the Avengers’. I mean, look at this photo: I actually see it still sitting on my kitchen table and…

Grilled BBQ Potatoes with Radish Leaf Sauce

Happy (Belated) Canada Day! This long weekend was such a whirlwind and so fun. Having a 2-year-old definitely changes the game on sunny 3 day weekends. Forget lazy afternoons or being delightfully day drunk. Hello front row seats for the Steveston Parade at 8am and mid-day meltdowns in front of thousands of tourists and your…

Vegan Meat Pie with Chanterelle Mushrooms and Field Roast Sausages

You’d think with Rich’s English ancestry we’d eat a lot more British food, like bangers and mash. I think I’ve made him custard maybe 3 times in 10 years. Maybe it’s because I’ve  met two English people in my life who have said (without provoking) ‘YOU’RE WELCOME FOR THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE!’ Ummmm…thanks and is that…

Green Veggies & Flower Pizza with Pesto and Aparagus

This is year is my first having my own veggie garden so even though I planted all my seeds more than a month ago, I wasn’t really prepared when everything started growing really well. I’ve got pumpkin plants spiraling out of the soil onto the grass, beans that I’ve had to tie up with wrapping…

Lindsay is Vegan Supper Club 2016!

2 years ago I went to a secret supper club and thought ‘phhhffft I can do this.’ And yes I was drinking so I probably said it pretty obnoxiously. Ahhh simpler times.  I’d like to go back and pat that Lindsay on the head and say ‘Bless you, sweet and stupid one.’ Because I went…
