Thai Mango lettuce cups

Mangos, one of life’s most delicious winter luxuries. Here in Canada, we get mangos seasons so to speak – one in summer perfect for tropical patio foods. Once in winter for wishful winter health foods. One of my Winter health foods is Thai peanut salads. I love peanut sauces it pears beautifully with many types…

Strawberry “Nice” cream

Who said vegan has to be boring rabbit food? Just because your choosing to eat plant based does not mean you need to suffer your meals. God want you to enjoy your food “Go, eat your food with gladness…God approves of this.” Ecclesiastes 9:7 One of the many reasons people struggle with plant based is…

Creamy Vegan mushroom soup

Mushroom soup is one of my favourite comfort foods. During the 21 day Daniel fast one must remove dairy, which systematically cuts out all dairy. One could replace it with coconut cream but sometimes you just don’t want that coconut flavour… like in the case of wild mushroom soup…so often times that means you go…

No-yeast pizza crust – Jamie Oliver

When fasting with youth it is hard to get them motivated- the lack of “fun” food often puts them off. Say the word Pizza, and my kids are all ears. This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s cook book, I love his creativity. Also because it’s Jamie we know it’s a dependable recipe – I have…

Daniel Fast- Cauliflower steaks

What’s on the grill?

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her Ephesians 5:25 Summer is fast approaching and if your like our family that means grilling season. My husband has blessed me with his support of my plant based lifestyle change thus far. I sit and think about this, it wasn’t…

Flax Pancakes with Berry Compote

Eggs, how do you get around Eggs. For the everyday person, they are in EVERYTHING. As a pastry chef, I loved them, not really to eat, I hardly ever ate eggs. But for their structure. They are the glue of the pastry world. For those who are fasting, going plant based or allergic…they are annoying…

Flat bread~ by any other name

Unleavened bread, Matzo, Lavash, Tortilla, Roti, Chaipati, Kitcha, Bannock …. “Man cannot live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4 I have one child who is testing Jesus’ theory on that. He has become somewhat of a bread expert. He knows what he likes and what…

Food conspiracy- Dry Ranch mix

I have one child who is developing his taste for veg slowly. Very slowly. Dip is often requested. When it comes to creamy salad dressings I always questioned why creamy dressings could be shelf stable. If you think about it too long, you begin to wonder about all those food conspiracies. How much gunk really…
