Brussels Sprout Hash

I’ve never bought Brussels sprouts before because they just seem extra hard to clean well. They also seem to have quite a bad reputation for some reason. I love cabbage so I don’t know why I never made the leap to these babies. Anyways, I’m giving them a shot today with this Brussels Sprout Hash…

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…

Artichoke Brunch Bake

I know the writers of this cookbook Brave New Meal like to do things a little differently, as we saw with the breakfast spaghetti a couple posts back (link here). Today’s recipe is a vegan take on a frittata. So obviously classic frittata is made with eggs but there are no eggs in this recipe….

Breakfast Spaghetti

The writers of this cookbook keep trying to change the game and they’ve done it with this recipe. This is breakfast spaghetti. Yes you read that right – spaghetti for breakfast. I think the thought process behind this recipe was that it would be pasta combined with some of the classic things that you would…

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…

Hatch Chile Salsa

Before I get into this post I just wanted to say that this is actually going to be my last recipe that I cook from the cookbook called Thug Kitchen 101. I’ve had a new cookbook from the same company for a few months now and I’m finally starting it. So my next post is…

“Fried” Rice Salad

Have you ever had a cold rice salad? This was my first time trying it and I quite liked it. To me, and probably many other people, cold rice does not sound very appealing. However, when it’s mixed with lots of other ingredients, it all works together and the rice adds such a nice textural…

Happy Monday! I know I posted the last recipe on Thursday (link here) but I wanted to take the weekend to relax and not think about writing. But I am here now and ready to write! I’m so happy with how this challenge went. Going through all my posts to make my faves list was…

New Cookbook Challenge + Recipe #1: West African Peanut Soup

When I finished my first cookbook challenge for the Yum & Yummer book by Greta Podleski (all recipes here), I told myself that I probably wouldn’t cook through another book. It was just a lot of work to organize all the recipes and be on such a consistent schedule of cooking, drafting and posting. It…

Wow, 102 recipes later I have completed my Yum & Yummer cookbook challenge! And yes, there are recipes in the book that I did not make due to dietary restrictions, but I made everything else that I could. Overall, this was an amazing cookbook. Almost every recipe was a hit – there were only a…
