Product Review/WARNING: Vedica Organics Dried Chickpeas

I’m back! Sort of…(?) Just now re-finding my way back online, gradually, after an exceptionally long period of having absolutely no access to functional electronic devices. This lengthy bout of away, hereby dubbed the “Great Technology Meltdown of 2016”, followed by the premature demise of a dear friend, fellow vegan/advocate, and colleague (of sorts) also led to a subsequent loss of desire to post anything of late since life offline has been so very overwhelming. However, I’m...

Noodling About with Spiral Slicers & Thai Nut Butter Sauce

Warm greetings to you, kind reader, and a bittersweet farewell to 2015   As promised per my previous post, I have more to share in relation to some testing I’ve been doing of various attachments acquired for use with the KitchenAid Artisan series stand mixer I’ve recently inherited upon the passing of my dear father. This holiday season has been incredibly difficult without him, and experimentation with one of his most liked gadgets was meant to bring a bit of joy into a heart-heavy journey...

Raw & Vegan Thousand Island

Thousand Island?   I always found this particular dressing to be incredibly odd, right down to the name. What exactly is it? How did it come to be known by such a strange name? Does it ever go off? Is that colour really natural? O_o Growing up in a household which may possibly have been considered to be the polar opposite of vegan, I noticed a rather strange habit my father had of persistently stocking our pantry to the gills with hos own regular “staples” (none of which ever seemed to consist of...

Corned Beetroot

Erm… WHAT and cabbage?   Strange as it may sound, I honestly had no idea what “corned beef” was, or how such a thing was made, until just a few short weeks ago. I suppose it’s possible that some morbid curiosity at the name was what led me to sit still for long enough to find out… Cheers for the cringes, Food Network! 😛 Perhaps that’s only to be expected from someone who never really engaged in consumption of such things (though I can hardly believe that my 25th...

Raw Vegan Korma & Spicy Aubergine Curry

Happy Summer, friends!   Please forgive my exceptionally lengthy lapse between entries? It has indeed been awhile since my last post, mainly due to the previously mentioned camera failure/technical difficulties & general “chaos superabundance” which comes with the onset of Summer. This post was actually composed several weeks ago & saved as draft, as the featured meals were created in honour of my little Sphynx friend’s birthday. However, the post was pushed to the backburner when...
