Plant based fat free scones

November 27, 2019

As promised I am posting a recipe for plant based scones that are also fat free. I don’t often make health claims on any of my recipes but I think this one would pass as healthy by most people. I used quinoa flour in the first recipe and it has quite a distinct quinoa”ish” flavour. If you want something less pronounced either use another flour (like oat or spelt) or blend half quinoa and half... View Article

French toast (a.k.a. Pain Perdu)

November 25, 2019

This is not something I make frequently but when I want it I want it and today was the day. Luckily I had good homemade bread that worked well with this, or get a beautiful challah bread, or a brioche if you are lucky. Otherwise, any good white bread would do. You can use whole wheat but this is not a health dish, it’s more like a rare treat. It’s best to leave the bread... View Article

Brioche

November 24, 2019

        Marie Antoinette became famous, or infamous, for her saying “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”, loosely translated to “let them eat cake”. Well, if she was offering brioche to the masses, maybe it was not such a bad thing (relax, just kidding). As it is brioche is my number one go to breakfast bread, even more so than the hallowed croissant, which I love as well. However, given a choice, which happens... View Article

Fat free dairy free apple muffins

November 12, 2019

    I made these little guys while visiting my daughter Alexis in Toronto. My daughter Jade and I flew to visit Alexis who is expecting a baby in January. We had a fun gals week, eating, shopping, cooking and relaxing. Too bad they all live so far from us. These are simple muffins that do not contain dairy or fat. The little bit of sugar is optional, I forgot to add it when I... View Article

Roasted Butternut Squash Mini Pancakes, vegan

November 3, 2019

    With all the beautiful squashes that are available at the markets of course I am buying and cooking them frequently. Roasting squashed of all kinds is probably my favourite way of serving them and then I can also use the roasted flesh to make into soups, use in baking and like this morning, use them in pancakes. I made these with leftover roasted butternut squash from yesterday and they were lovely, although I... View Article

Scrambled egg tartine on sourdough bread

November 2, 2019

  My foodie friend Val and I traveled a couple of hours south a few weeks ago especially to get a sourdough bread from a chef who offers them at the local market. The bread was so outstandingly good that I made a few tartines with it, topping it with roasted peppers, figs and gorgonzola, beautiful ricotta and a couple of more toppings. The only one that got photographed was this breakfast tartine with scramble... View Article

Matcha soaked steel cut oats

October 6, 2019

      For me breakfast is cereal but sometimes I like to switch things around, especially in the summer when a hot cereal may seem heavy. On those occasions I would soak oats overnight in plant based milk, orange juice or apple juice, and have it for breakfast cold with topping of seasonal fruits. This time I soaked the oats in cashew milk and decided to add a little matcha for colour, flavour and... View Article

Vegan No Fat Pancakes

September 9, 2019

  I was in the mood for pancakes and made them for dinner, so there. Why not? Breakfast for dinner is apparently a good thing. I had a small box of wild huckleberries, foraged by Scott Moran in the mountains of BC, and used them both inside the pancake batter and scattered around the plate. The white stuff on top could or could not be whipped cream, I admit nothing. And the drizzle you see... View Article

Chocolate Waffles with Caramelized Pears

November 27, 2017

Pancakes and waffles breakfasts are rare in our house these days. There were times when it was a standard weekend fare but then the kids were at home and life was different. Still, now and then I feel like making waffles and indulge: whipped cream, maple syrup, caramelized or fresh fruits, the works. This past weekend was one of those occasions and believe it or not, I made both buttermilk waffles AND chocolate waffles. There... View Article
