Vancity Virtual Potluck: Vegan Beer Chow Mein & Tofu

This is an update of an old post because I went to re-shoot the photos of this dish for the never-coming cookbook I’m working on (joking!) and I was so embarrassed by the old post that I felt like it deserved a do-over. Plus what better reason than for the Vancity Virtual Potluck? It’s a…

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…

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…

Spicy Cucumber Salad

My next supper club is coming up! It’s going to be so pretty, right in Olympic Village overlooking the water. I’m trying something new by renting a space, it feels so fancy. Plus all proceeds will be benefiting my friend Rubie’s project at Ubuntu! They’re building a much-needed play area in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. So come…

Savoury Waffles with ‘Chicken’ and Avocado Cream

I have probably eaten close to a pound of sugar in the last couple of days. But you know what? I feel f**king fantastic because it’s for Ubuntu. If you haven’t already, put your order in for vegan cupcakes or whatever to be delivered to your door!* Or just make a donation and save me…

Lindsay is Vegan’s Ubuntu Meals

I was talking to Rubie from Ubuntu the other day, asking her what projects her organization was working on and what they needed. (For a refresher on Rubie and Ubuntu, click here.) She was telling me how their next goal was to raise $25,000 for a play and therapy area for the kids they care…

5 Foods to Stop Throwing Away

I’ve been a little behind on my blogging but it’s because I’ve been tinkering with my site. Come and take a look! Thoughts? Feelings? Thoughts about your feelings? I’ve also been working on my cookbook which many people have asked about and to answer your questions about when it’s coming out…I have no idea. I’m…

Vegan Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pizza

Valentine’s Day always brings back sweet memories of my friend Beth and Kevin Costner. Obviously. When we were single we would celebrate Valentine’s Day with Treatzza Pizza and a Kevin Costner movie because we were awesome. Wait…what’s this photo doing here?Yes, Beth is holding Kevin’s first movie; Sizzle Beach. In honour of our not-at-all weird…

Secret Supper Dates for 2016!

This is my year and I’m totally feeling it. Can you tell? I’ve pretty much shouted it at you for the past 3 or 4 blog posts. Also- still no wine and I’m feeling pretty f**king fantastic even though it seems to continue to baffle and confuse people to the point of rage. I get…

Vegan Ramen

I’ve decided to give up wine for 2016 and I wouldn’t say people are losing their damn minds over it, but pretty close. It’s making me wonder if my love of wine has earned me a reputation over the years. Here’s what conversations about it have been like: “I’m giving up wine for 2016.” “I read…

Rosewater Pudding with Pistachios

2016 is off to a great start! If it hasn’t been a fantastic new year for you so far, don’t worry the Chinese New Year (where things really matter….sorry it’s true) is just under a month away. I’ve almost booked venues for 3 supper clubs this year! I’m still working on securing a venue for…
