Mini Lemon Meringue Tarts

A lot of people enjoyed my chickpea tuna salad from yesterday (link here) and I’m hoping you will like this post just as much πŸ™‚ So today, I moved on to a dessert using chickpeas. Well, it sort of uses chickpeas – I used aquafaba, which is a chickpea by-product. Aquafaba (“bean water”) is the…

Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

I hope you liked my chickpea pancakes from yesterday (link here) and today I’m moving on to a nice chickpea lunch/snack. I’ve known of this recipe for a while but never made it because I usually just pop open a can of tuna. I actually love tuna salad, I used to eat it all the…

Nutty Chickpea Pancakes

Welcome to another week of my 1 item, 3 ways series. You can see my entire collection of posts from this challenge here. Well we’ve made it to the last week of august which means that summer has just flown by. I love warm weather so I’m not looking forward to the cold canadian winter…

Creamy Peanut Curry

As opposed to my other coconut recipes that used coconut meat, this last recipe used the milk. I love coconut milk because it’s a nice dairy free option that adds so much creaminess to whatever you put it in. I also wanted to make something was a complete meal since I’ve been making lots of…

Coconut Lemon Blondies

So far, in every week this month, I have made a baked good with my secret ingredient. I am keeping that streak going during coconut week. I made blondies using this recipe (link here). I love the combination of lemon and coconut in desserts, it’s so fresh and I just love anything with citrus. These…

BLT Sandwich w/ Coconut Bacon

Hope you enjoyed strawberry week (click here to see those posts), and welcome to coconut week! Since coconut comes in so many forms – fresh, shredded, flakes, milk – I wanted to use a variety in my recipes. For this first recipe, I used coconut flakes. I got this big bag from a health food…

Strawberry Oat Bars

For the last strawberry post, I wanted a nice dessert/snack. Instead of just a classic pie or crisp, I chose to make these strawberry oat bars. I used this recipe (link here). They were so yummy, and they were not too sweet, which I liked. The recipe includes an optional glaze but I think they…

Strawberry Avocado Toast

If you know me at all, you know that I love avocado. Not sure if I’ve mentioned before though, but I actually used to hate it. I only came to like it in the past couple of years. I never liked the texture but I guess now that I’m cooking more and becoming a sort…

Homemade Fruit Roll Ups

Fruit roll ups were one of my favourite snacks when I was a kid. The best was the one that had 2 flavours and you could pull apart. Also the one with tongue tattoos were so fun and made me feel cool. Childhood was a good time haha. Now that I’m older though, I definitely…

Lemon Cucumber Cupcakes

I know my first 2 cucumber recipes were a little more traditional, this last one was definitely out of the box. I really wanted to see if there were any recipes that used cucumber in desserts. There were surprisingly more recipes than I thought there would be. I ended up choosing this cucumber and lemon…
