Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I don’t think that I have skipped breakfast, ever. A day without breakfast has not actually started yet. Most days I like to make myself an egg sandwich or Everyday Banana Pancakes. However, every weekend I like to make a nicer breakfast when I have the time….

White chocolate, Raspberry Tahini Cookies

Roasted Cauliflower with Lentils & Tahini Sauce

A couple weeks ago, my partner Mia and I really needed to go to the grocery store. We had nearly no food left in the fridge and were planning to go that evening. However, we needed to scrape together a lunch with what we had in the fridge to make it through the day. We…

Tropical Ginger Tofu

This is a delicious tofu stir fry that is a bit different than the typical soy sauce based stir fry. There is a vibrant citrus sauce with lots of ginger (and just a splash of soy sauce). Tying the dish together are small bits of pineapple in the stir fry that give you a delicious…
