Maple Glazed Pecans

I don’t have any story to tell you about this recipe. I just love pecans and maple syrup together! These two ingredients are the perfect combination, and it’s even better when you add some ginger to the mix! This recipe takes 20 minutes to prepare, is delicious, and makes for a great ‘mason jar’ gift.Continue reading “Maple Glazed Pecans”

Sweet Potato Nori Roll

You have a nice, filling, fresh, and colourful meal that you can customize to your liking (or to your fridge’s content)! Here is what you need for each roll: 1 NoriContinue reading “Sweet Potato Nori Roll”

Vegan Chocolate Tiramisu

I have to admit, I only had tiramisu once before going vegan. For some reason, however, I was craving the smooth layers of chocolate cake and cream. So I made some chocolate cake, thick vegan cream, a rum-chocolate dipping liquid, and here you go! Here is what you need for the cake: 120g gluten freeContinue reading “Vegan Chocolate Tiramisu”

Simple Curry (for busy nights)

This is the recipe I fall back on when I’m feeling like having some comfort food. It is very quick to make, looks impressive and is really delicious! It also makes for a great lunch!

Simple Fruit Leather

I really hate to throw away food. When I see that the produce I bought is getting old and will go bad soon, I try to transform it to extend its life to avoid waste. I have to say, however, that meal planing reduces and often eliminates waste as you are only buying what youContinue reading “Simple Fruit Leather”

Fancy (but easy) Mushroom Nest

This week-end I went to Blanc de Gris which is an urban farm specialized in oyster mushrooms. How fun!

Thai Zoodle, Fresh and Flavourful!

A few months ago I bought a spiralizer and started really loving zoodles or courgettis. It is so easy to take up a zucchini and transform it into noodles. Since I’m gluten-free, this is the perfect option as it is inexpensive and replaces wheat pastas really well. I really like to make thicker noodles thatContinue reading “Thai Zoodle, Fresh and Flavourful!”

This soup does the trick!Continue reading “Corn Chowder, the ultimate comfort soup?”

Easy Jicama Pasta

I really like jicama! It is great raw in salads: crunchy and fresh, it really adds a lot of texture to any salad. Guess what? It’s also great cooked! Paired up with asparagus and pasta, it creates a very easy and fresh recipe for spring, while still being filling and deliciously flavourful! Cooked jicama hasContinue reading “Easy Jicama Pasta”

Vietnamese Food Series!

Last week was my March break week: I have already started a very serious mourning period! I took advantage of the time I had to organize my school work, plan my exams, correct the pieces of work I had collected, and plan all my classes until the end of the year… I wish! I actuallyContinue reading “Vietnamese Food Series!”
