Since I became vegan I have been craving french toast. It was our Sunday breakfast growing up and my dad always made it for us. Topped with real maple syrup and butter that came from my grandfather’s farm. YUM!

I found a recipe but wasn’t completely satisfied with it, so I took the general idea and changed it up a bit. I am still working on it, so when you try this please give me feedback.



makes about 8 if you use medium slices of whole wheat bread

1 cup vanilla soy milk
3 to 4 tbsps corn starch (depending how thick you want the coating on the bread)
1/2 cup chick pea flour (do not use any other kind, this is the only one that works)
1 tbsp cinnamon or nutmeg or mix up both
Oil for the frying pan

Mix the soy milk with the corn starch and flour, mix well. Right before you are about to start dipping your bread add the cinnamon.

Heat up your pan.

If using fresh or soft bread don’t leave it in the mixture too long, the bread will fall apart. 😦

Banana Bread
I had a tonne of ripe banana’s in the freezer so decided to make a couple loaves of banana bread. I am trying to veganize my mom’s recipe and am still working on it, so no recipe just yet. I may change my mind and post it as I want others to try it out.


Lemon Squares
One of my favourite forums on the planet can be found over at theppk.com. I was in the kitchen forum when Isa proclaimed she invented vegan lemon squares. I LOVE lemon squares and the fact there is a vegan version made me happy. So I made them. When they were done I was confused. Why aren’t they yellow… then I realized… it’s because I used raw sugar, which is brown. To get yellow lemon squares you need white sugar. Oh well, they are super delish anyway!!!!! Here is where you will find the recipe, you will need to scroll down a bit.

Here are my brownish lemon bar pics




I’m making pizza for dinner so recipe and pictures later!

lots ‘o’ food

today I made quite a bit of food… tomorrow there will be even more.

Here what I made today


~Baking Powder Biscuts (from Sarah Kramer’s cookbook)

~Quinoa Stew

1 cup Quinoa
1 cup veggie broth
8 mushroom
2 ribs celery
one large can plum tomatos (use the juice)
1 small onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano

first saute the onions, garlic and celery, when onions are getting transluecent, throw in mushrooms, saute for a bit more, then add the Quinoa, saute for about 5 more minutes then add the broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer for another 20 minutes. Stir once in while so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.

~Chicken Flavoured Seitan (viki’s recipe)

2 cups vital wheat gluten
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried sage
1/4 tsp cumin seed or ground cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 cups cold water
1/3 cup tamari or soy sauce
8 cups water
1/2 cup tamari or soy sauce
3 tsp chicken flavored broth powder (a vegan product available in many natural food stores)

In a large bowl, mix together the vital wheat gluten, rosemary, thyme, sage, cumin seed, chicken flavored broth and garlic powder. In a separate bowl, combine the water and tamari or soy sauce. Using a strong spoon and mixing quickly, slowly pour liquid into gluten mixture. The gluten will develop very fast and become very rubbery and elastic. If there is any remaining dry mix, quickly add a small amount of water to soak it up. Personally once the liquid is mixed, I mix the rest with my hands. Once thoroughly mixed, knead the dough for approximately 5 minutes. Once done needing shape into a log about 10” long. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.

In a large stock pot, combine 8 cups cold water with 1/2 cup tamari or soy sauce and vegetable stock cube or powder to taste. Cut gluten log into desired shapes, maximum 1/2 inch thick. Individually drop the gluten pieces into the cold stock. Once the dough is in the cold broth, set to boil. Once boiling reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Seitan may now turned into any creation you like.

~Mini Cheese cakes (recipe to come)

~Veganized Dianne Smart’s Baked Beans (slow cooker recipe)
2 16 oz cans of Navy Beans or 1 small bag of dry Navy Beans (if you are going to use dry, soak for 24 hours in hot water.
1 1/2 cups molasses
1 1/2 cups water
1 small onion
6 slices vegan bacon
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
1 5.5 oz can of tomato paste
pepper to taste

Before placing the ingredients in the pot, make sure you spray the walls with vegetable oil, the beans may stick. In a separate bowl combine all ingredient till the beans are completely covered with sauce. Pour all ingredients into the oiled crockery and then cook on low for 8 hours. Do not use the high setting for these beans as they will cook too fast and dry out.
