Today I have a very Canadian treat to share with you. Nanaimo bars! All the Canadians reading this are licking their lips, but the rest of you are probably going, huh? Nanaimo bars are a tray dessert made up of a crust layer of crushed graham crackers, nuts, coconut and chocolate, a filling of fluffy vanilla frosting and a chocolate topping. But I wanted to do something a little more special and a little more green (after all it is St. Patrick’s Day) so here is a recipe for pistachio Nanaimo bars! Keep reading
I must admit I don’t particularly care for Valentine’s day and I rarely even acknowledge it’s existence. In theory it’s a great idea. Celebrating love! Yes, I am so in! There isn’t anything more important to celebrate. But Valentine’s day is about romantic love and that means missing out on so much other love worthy of celebration. What about love in a family or between friends? Or the love we have for our communities and our fellow human beings? I want to celebrate all those kinds of love! But all that said, this year I also really wanted to celebrate my awesome partner Dan, just because he is the best, you know? So this year Valentine’s day is all about carrot-pineapple cake.
This recipe is from From Scratch.
My first book! From Scratch is a vegetarian cookbook intended for people just becoming comfortable in their
own kitchens. Just like with Good and Cheap, the
PDF is free.
Print copies are a pricier than you might expect because this book is printed on demand (1 copy at a time).
You were looking for another Thanksgiving recipe, right? I’m pretty sure there aren’t NEARLY enough of those around, so I thought I’d take it upon myself to help you guys out. Good thing I’m here or breakfast would be impossible, children would cry, it would be a mess. I give you, pumpkin cinnamon rolls (or as we say in Canada, pumpkin cinnamon buns)! Keep reading
So it’s supposed to be spring now. But we’re not quite there yet. The farmers market is still bleak and wintery; no ramps, no asparagus, certainly no strawberries. What looks good? The apple cider donuts of course. But around here we don’t buy apple cider donuts. We make them.
