‘Tis the season that your schedule becomes jammed with holiday parties, family commitments and everything in between. It’s also the time of year where temptations of unhealthy food is all around us and we become so busy we lose sight of eating healthy.
When the cool fall weather starts to approach, and the days get shorter, there’s nothing better than curling up in some fuzzy socks after a long day with a big plate of comfort food. Casseroles have literally been around since the 20s and have been known as the one-dish meal that you can cram a whole whack of goodness into (without spending the whole night in the kitchen). This recipe is one of my favourites for the fall and winter because it seriously warms my soul. The best part is that it’s super simple to make and you’ll have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day! It’s the meal that keeps on giving.
Holy Guacamole, did someone say Nutty Dark Chocolate + Strawberry Chia Jam Cheesecake?  Yep, I did and this cake is entirely inspired by my childhood addiction. I know what you're thinking, Maria was healthy when she was young... HAHA  NOPE!  I wasn't addicted to vegetable recipes and vegetarian recipes, I was a full on CAKE ADDICT!   I'm not kidding guys I would eat DQ Ice Cream Cake at any opportunity and half the time it wasn't even my damn birthday *sigh* - poor parents .
Are you tired of all your fresh, gorgeous herbs always going to waste? Well, I was - not to mention the fact that I am notorious for killing plants and herbs because 1) its too hot in my house and I can't keep up with watering 2) I just kill them, I don't mean to but I am no green thumb.  Anyway, enough about me and more about these gorgeous, clever and time saving Olive Oil Pods! They're the perfect way to quickly add flavour to all your vegan vegetable recipes and vegetarian recipes!  You can jazz them up in class by ensuring you use natural and organic foods (herbs in this case) to make sure you're getting the best quality into each dish.
Oh yes you guys! I made the best damn "Big Mac" sauce using Maille Canada Gherkins and holy shit, IT WAS AMAZING! I know a lot of us have cravings in the kitchen and for some reason mine are always related to dips and sauces, like I could put them on anything and basically replace them as a meal - oops.
Hello everyone and Happy July!! Can you believe it, I've officially gone nuts and made soup in the middle of this heat wave but Andrew proved a good point to the other day, to help justify my madness.  "Baby, it's not Summer everywhere in the world" so this recipe is for everyone but for half the world to enjoy now and perhaps for my Summer experiencing dare devils! I went into this vegan + vegetarian soup recipe quite scared if I am honest.  Creating a traditional recipe and transforming it into something its not technically meant to be can be quite frightening but it was all worth it because this recipe is bomb AF! I guarantee, guarantee, everyone in your family is going to fall in love with it.
Baby! Baby! Baby! Summer is here and damn its hot.  Who wants to be stuck inside making fussy recipes whilst missing out on that Vitamin D? I sure as hell don't.  Bit ironic thats what I do, don't yah think? I've created this dish and its being added to the easiest plant based diet salad recipes list! I used Kalikori Olive Oil - if you click on that link you can ever yourself in to WIN some olive oil for yourself!!
It's super simple salad time! Can I get a YEEEHAW?  Because we're obviously all super excited about this nutritious salad that takes under 20 minutes to makes and like 4 minutes to eat!  This salad is a combination of BOMBMALICIOUS + FABULOSO and will leave you feeling like the sexy goddess you are.
  Baby it is BBQ Party season and I am damn excited! These Black Bean Burgers are the perfect addition to your next gathering and I promise you that they will be the star of the show.  They are super delicious, nutritious and easy to follow! When asked about these babies you can ensure all your guests that they are made from natural food, vegetarian + vegan and even recommend the recipe for their plant based diet recipes collection! I made these last night for Andrew and he fell in love.  He said that they probably wouldn't have been the same without the homemade "Big Mac Sauce" or  Thousand Island so please do not skip out on that!
Hey everyone and welcome to the perfect excuse for me to make pasta AGAIN! I will be making the best carb loading meal for your next Marathon or outdoor activity!
