Homemade Refried Beans

One thing I have mentioned over and over again is that Kodi and I have been focusing on cost savings and zero waste in our house. This month of April, I am going to focus on zero waste recipes, and creating a zero waste kitchen (blog post coming soon). Every morning we make breakfast, and…

Vegan Chocolate Pudding Cups

The two New Year resolutions Kodi and I have not broke yet have been making lunches every day with healthy options and reducing waste. With many changes in our lives; me starting a new career, him starting a new job, we have buckled down and try to make as much stuff from home that is…

Copy Cat Corn Salsa

If I am going to be honest, this recipe came up because I was craving a burrito bowl from Chipotle, and I didn’t want to drive all the way to Langley, or downtown Vancouver. So as I kept opening and closing the fridge, freezer and all the cupboards with not inspiration and not wanting anything…

Pasta Dough!

Pasta. Pasta is life. Carbs are life. But when you make it from scratch yourself, you appreciate it even more. I didn’t think I could love pasta anymore than I did, but I do when we make it from scratch. It is fresh, it has more taste than store bought and it is fun to…

Cranberry, Coconut & Almond Chocolate Bark

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps and Peanut Sauce

Sea Salt, Vinegar and Rosemary Beet Chips.

Eating seasonal in the winter time seems like a BIG challenge, almost impossible. But it really is not that hard. There are lots of options: Apples, artichoke, barley, bok choi, beets, broccoli, broccolini, brussel sprouts, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, chard, crimini mushrooms, fennel, garlic, kale, leeks, micro greens, oats, onions, oyster mushrooms, pea shoots, portabello…

Banana “Bread” Granola

In this household, we love Banana Bread, we always have a loaf of banana bread on the go. But recently, we have been making some changes and adjustments to our eating and cut out refined sugar, and a large amount of carbs. Restart, ya know? Kodi attempted to make granola when I was away and…

The Simple Equation for Roasting Veg

Roasted Veggies are one of my FAVOURITE things to make in the winter time. It is easy, you can add any type of seasoning to create different flavours, and usually, winter veg is nice and hearty and can last for a couple of days for leftover lunches. The best thing about roasting vegetables is that…
