Herbal Teas Everyone Should Have!

Ah! It’s Fall! How glorious is that? I’m so ready for some colder temperatures, if only because it means I can cozy up with some warm tea in bed with a good book. If you know me, you will know that I’ve been on a tea-buying ban for two years now because my tea collectionContinue reading “Herbal Teas Everyone Should Have!”

Turmeric paste: where were you before?!?

I love golden milk or turmeric lattes, and I’m all for adding more turmeric and its anti-inflammatory goodness to my life. However, I have to admit that preparing this delicious drink from scratch every day is too much for me. I was about to give up, when I stumbled upon an instand drink I hadContinue reading “Turmeric paste: where were you before?!?”

Avataq and the most wonderful herbal teas + Giveaway! \\ Avataq et les meilleures tisanes + Tirage!

(La version française est plus bas!) When I worked at the Botanical Garden, I would often pass through the giftshop to look at the books… and teas. I would often leave with a box of Inuit herbal teas called “Northern Delights”. These were a staple to my tea collection and became usual gifts for friendsContinue reading “Avataq and the most wonderful herbal teas + Giveaway! \\ Avataq et les meilleures tisanes + Tirage!”

Relaxing Tea and workshop update!

Today was such an exciting day! If you follow me on Facebook, you have seen that I organized a workshop that happened tonight. I was really nervous that no one would show up, but 20 people came, and they were the best people I could have hoped for for my first vegan workshop. I seriouslyContinue reading “Relaxing Tea and workshop update!”

Mathilde, a Ladurée Tea

The last time we visited some family in France, I got the chance to raid a Ladurée store. Now, if ever you are going to Paris, I highly recommend visiting one of their uniquely cute pastry shops. Mind you, they don’t have a huge selection of vegan treats, but the feel of the store isContinue reading “Mathilde, a Ladurée Tea”

Because Outer Happiness is pretty great!

A few days ago, I contacted Outer Happiness, an Montreal-based Etsy store specialized in vegan body products like bath salts, body scrubs, masks and even candles. The products looked really cute, and the scent combinations sounded amazing! Marina, the shop owner, was kind enough to give me a few samples to try out: how exciting! IContinue reading “Because Outer Happiness is pretty great!”

Yorkshire Gold, a breakfast staple

I have mentioned before that I have slight tea addiction. Well, it’s not getting any better because I have discovered a new must for difficult mornings: Yorkshire Gold classic black tea. This is a very classic tea, and for a good reason! The taste is rich, deep and slightly bitter. No fruit, no flower, justContinue reading “Yorkshire Gold, a breakfast staple”

Earl Grey Vegan Ice Cream

I have a confession to make: I’m completely tea obsessed. I have been on a no-buying tea since last November, survived the craze for Christmas teas, and still have a full tea library and a tea cupboard that don’t seem to by any less crowded. It is crazy! I don’t know what it is aboutContinue reading “Earl Grey Vegan Ice Cream”

Vegan Pecan Sandies Cookies

Tonight I was craving cookies. Of course I ran to our pantry and looked for chocolate chips. Deception, deception: no more chocolate chips. So, I grabbed the next best thing: pecans.   Here is what you need: 1 1/4 cup gluten-free flour 1/2 cup pecans 3 tbs maple syrup 5 tbsp coconut oil 1 tbsContinue reading “Vegan Pecan Sandies Cookies”

Chai Coconut Mascarpone Cups

This week-end I was craving desserts, in particular yogurt parfaits where you place fruit over yogurt and add nuts, granola or other toppings. I have been experimenting with vegan yogurt, but so far the results have not been to my liking. Yet, I yearned for this rich cream consistency. So, I gathered a few thingsContinue reading “Chai Coconut Mascarpone Cups”
