Orange Cinnamon Morning Rolls & Maple Kumquat Preserves

It is a new week and I am excited to continue along with the Brave New Meal cookbook and get back on track with a good recipe. Today I made the orange cinnamon morning rolls. Because my last yeast dough experience went quite well with the blueberry thyme marble rolls (link here) I was excited…

Now that I’m a few recipes into my new cookbook challenge (Brave New Meal), I thought it would be a good time to look back at some of my favourite recipes from my previous cookbook (Thug Kitchen 101). Overall, I quite enjoyed this book. It was a nice fresh look at vegan cooking and really…

Curry Roasted Eggplant

Happy Monday! Just like every week, I’m starting mine with a recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook.
