Vegan MoFo on the Road – Coming home post Sandy.

We’re finally home, albeit a few days later than planned due to Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy. We arrived in Philadelphia on Saturday morning after a night on the bus. Sleeplessness and trying to navigate an unfamiliar transit system made for an interesting time, but we found our way to our hotel, and JC made it to his […]

VeganMoFo – Unofficial Soup Week continues at The Depanneur – French Onion Soup

Foursquare tells me it’s been at least three months since I’ve been to The Depanneur (fondly known as The Dep) but I’m glad we went over there last night. JC and I were trying to figure out what to do for date night on such a grey and rainy evening, and I saw a Dep […]

Vegan MoFo – Challah becomes French Toast.

So last week I made Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Maple Challah, and it was delicious. After we finished the first loaf, I wondered if I could do anything fun with the second loaf – and french toast came to mind. My mom had bought a package of EcoIdeas Cinnamon French Toast mix (it’s vegan and gluten-free) […]

Vegan MoFo – Upping my Tillers Rep in Real Life – Fresh City Farms

This weekend JC and I got our hands dirty at the Fresh City Farms plots at Downsview Park. It takes around an hour to get out there by bus from our house, but it was genuinely rewarding (and not just in the quantity of beets we brought home with us afterwards.) I picked eggplant, hot […]

Vegan MoFo – Friday Night Apple Cinnamon Stuffed Maple Challah and a goodbye to an old (camera) friend.

It’s getting cold outside, which also means it’s getting cold in the house. Emmie cat has gotten snugglier, and so have I, especially in my resistance to turn on the heat until at least the end of October. I don’t think that’s going to happen. It’s also time where I realize I don’t own any […]

Vegan MoFo – Things I Love Thursday – Produce, TEDxToronto #TILT

It’s almost hard to believe that another week has gone by so quickly. Time flies when you’re having fun? Or maybe it’s just when you’re busy. It’s nice to reflect on the things I love and am thankful for at least once a week, because it keeps things in perspective. Looking back, I can see […]

Vegan Mofo Day 2 – Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Experiment

Today I made a cheesecake. It happened by accident, it happened as many things related to food happen, I look at them and think… hmm. Maybe this will work, or “I wonder what will happen if I combine this.” I realize there are perfectly good recipes for Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with a chocolate chip cookie […]
