Its also very easy to make and exceptionally delicious to eat! The main ingredients for this dish are raw pecans, rolled oats, cocoa powder, cashews,…

Raw Cashew Strawberry Cheesecake

Removing dairy from my baking has been really hard especially if you knew how much I love cheesecake. This recipe was inspired from Isa Chandra who does amazing vegan and vegetarian food. Her cooking is tasty and wholesome without making things artificial. Soak 3 cups of cashews overnight or for at least 3 hours. Soaking…

Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

I created this dish for a special birthday meal and it was inspired by The Keg’s Mushroom Neptune. Although this does not compare to the taste, it was something that was easy to whip up. For this recipe, I used portobello mushrooms but any mushroom caps will work. Remove the stems on the mushrooms. I…

Kabocha Squash Pasta Sauce

This is my attempt at reducing dairy from my diet. My eczema started flaring up and I had to go back to a more strict diet that did not include a lot of dairy. For this recipe, I used a kabocha squash. It has an earthy sweet taste and is perfect for thick sauces. I…

Frickin’ Easy Vegan Black Forest Cake

By popular demand, I tried to make a vegan version of my black forest cake.  It sort of worked?! I guess.  It tasted great but the coconut whipped cream didn’t last long.  My original cake was made with whipping cream and it was perfect. It was a moist and delicious cake. This version was just…

Review: Vegan Pudding & Co

How do I find places that I want to review?  Well through instagram…. and food porn.  I love looking at food pictures and following others who live in Vancouver and seeing what they eat.  I would like to try more places but I only can eat so much and going out is  expensive.  So I…

Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

Creamy, dairy free, egg free, tasty, noms, yum.  I have finally perfected my recipe for cauliflower alfredo sauce.  You won’t miss the cheese or dairy.  It is also a sneaky way to get your kids to eat veggies.  I think this is also great for someone who is watching their calorie intake. What you need…

White Bean Dairyfree Alfredo Sauce

Living dairy-free has its benefits.  I feel healthier and lighter.  Living this way also gave me a chance too be creative and a purpose to experiment to replicate my favorite dishes.  Here is a recipe that I thought was decent, but I would still need to do a few changes to make this awesome.  I…

Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love dressing up and eating pumpkin pie.  This year however I am trying something new out.  Pumpkin cupcakes with vegan cream cheese icing.  I hope they turn out because anything vegan scares me! I think the hardest thing with this recipe is trying to…

Coconut Cream of Mushroom Chicken

One thing that I miss is cream of mushroom soup. In this recipe, I tried to recreate the taste and texture using coconut milk. Start by slicing and sautéing 5 mushrooms in dairy-free butter or oil. Browning the mushrooms would bring out the nice earthy flavour. Set the mushrooms to one side while you brown…

Non-Dairy Creamer

Going dairy free can be hard. Especially when you love the rich creamy taste of milk in your coffee.  I have been looking for an alternative for quite a while.  The soy creamers that are available are usually full of sugar (which as you know I cannot have). I tried hemp milk, almond milk, cashew…

Dairy-free Ice Cream Cake

Having restrictions in your diet doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy what you eat.  You just need to find ways to work around it. It allows you to try new things and expand your food choices. My sister just recently stopped having dairy. I guess that is a good thing because dairy isn’t really that…
