Dear Baking, I miss you.

Hi bakers!

My apologies for the complete lack of cooking and baking posts these past few weeks. I spent a good chunk of the new year with a cast on my arm (yaaaay), moved to Toronto, and have been training for a race.  Needless to say, baking has not been at the top of my ‘to-do’ items.

Now that I am settled and completly healed I am going to try and post more often on cooking/baking, especially healthy and low fat recipes!

Happy Baking!

Hi Everyone!

We’re coming up to the busy holiday season. I thought I would tell you about a book that can get you from Monday to Friday without having to wonder what to make for dinner.

Canadian Living’s Everyday Favorites is excellent. This book is full of simple recipes that cover all types of diets and tastes.

The Tabouleh salad recipe makes a huge batch and its so good!

If you’re a meat eater there are some delicious stir fry and pasta repicpes as well.

You can grab this book on Amazon or Indigo/Chapters.

Happy Cooking!

Hi Everyone!

It’s Wednesday again (believe it or not) so it’s time for another book shelf selection!

Since I am writing this post pretty ‘early’ this morning breakfast seems to be on the brain. In fact, my stomach is growling while I am writing this.

One of my favourite grab-and-go breakfasts is a homemade muffin and one of my all time favorite muffin cook books is 150 Best Vegan Muffin Recipes!

This book is written by Camilla Saulsbury, a freelance food writer, recipe developer and cooking instructor.

Eveything I have made from this book has been delicious! The Morning Oatmeal Muffins are fantastic. I could eat one right now!

Another appealing aspect of this book is its price. The book is around $15 and can be found on Amazon and Indigo/Chapters.

I hope you try it out.

Happy Baking (and eating)!

Hi Everyone!

It’s Wednesday already and that means it’s time for another selection from my bookshelf! Last week I featured a book full of sweet treats, so I thought this week I would feature a book more on the savoury and spicy side.

Everyday Indian is an extremely delicious and accessible guide to Indian cooking, written by Bal Arneson.  Bal is a chef, Food TV personality, and cook book author becoming increasingly well known for her tasty and un-intimidating Indian recipes.

Everyday Indian is a great book worth owning.  There are many vegetarian options in this book, as well as many vegan friendly recipes.  Indian food uses many legumes and vegetables often making it a very balanced choice for people going meatless or meat-reduced.

I have made the lentil soup.  So easy, healthy, and delicious!

I also made homemade paneer cheese using Bal’s book. I substituted goat milk in for cow’s due to allergies.

Bal’s website features some recipes that are free to try.  Check them out!

Everyday Indian is not Bal’s most recent book but it is the one I own and love. You can pick up this book at Chapters/Indigo or Amazon.

If you are curious about starting to cook Indian food this is a great place to start!

Happy cooking!
