Feline Farewells, Dragon Dreams, & Significant (Other) Updates

Is it already time to celebrate the arrival of another new year? 🐱>🐉 🤔 The Year of The Cat was an absolutely amazing, often intense, and incredibly educational journey––despite having commenced rather peculiarly/formidably. Looking back it now feels like one of the best years I’ve had in ages, possibly ever. Even in consideration of a few (then) seemingly endless difficulties faced along the way, it actually proved to be an incredibly momentous, transformational period for me––as I suppose is meant to be...

Lunar Noodling – Heirloom Apple/Butternut Pasta & Sunflower Seed Butter Sauce

Happy Lunar New Year! This time of year marks that particular moment when many of us (myself included) choose to observe onset of a new full calendar reset – and in this case the Year of The Monkey. In honour of kindred primates worldwide, this seems more than an appropriate time to celebrate with the best possible food to fuel primates of all species (including humans): FRUIT!   As it seems that ritual accompanies the onset of each new year, symbolism always plays an integral role in the way many of us are...

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...

24th Veganniversary Treat: Raw Carrot Cake Donuts

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today is a big day of festivities for me, as I shall also be celebrating my 24th year of veganism and dedication to a lifelong journey of commitment toward peaceful co-existence with all fellow Earthlings. As some may recall from last year’s ‘Celebration of Spring’ themed post, the 5th of May is also my birthday–a day which I have always found most helpful to use as a mile marker for new experiences. Despite my reluctance to celebrate my day of birth as some monumental...
