Flash in the Pan: Supremely Summery Raw Zucchini “Bruschetta”

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] […]

Zucchini Fritters (Vegan, Grain-free, Candida Diet)

During this month that was MoFo, I’ve been writing up weekly roundups at the end of each week to recap what transpired.  As you can see, I missed this past weekend, what with exciting events (both the “exciting-scary” and “exciting-fun” categories) taking place between Thursday and Saturday.  And since Vegan MoFo actually ends today, I […]

Grilled Vegetable Salad with Fresh Tarragon Dressing

Remember that first blush of new love, those early days when you were still keen to learn every little thing about your sweetheart?  A casual glance around the back yard revealed the emerald hue of the grass, the red of the tomato plants, the coral of the peonies all mysteriously so much sharper and more intense, as if your world […]

Raw Linguine with Bolognese Sauce and Hemp Parmesan

[Zucchini Pasta Bolognese–hearty and delicious] Dealing with all the exigencies of the anti candida diet (ACD) can really be a challenge.  After more than a year without sugars (sniff, boo hoo), most fruits (miss ya, mangoes!), gluten (you were overrated anyway), yeasts (nooch!  nooch!), fungi (bye, bye, portobello steaks) or anything else fermented (thank God you […]

Gena’s Raw (Bean Free) Broccoli Hummus

In case you haven’t noticed, we Canadians are pretty obsessed with the weather.  It rules our schedules, our wardrobes and our moods.  Wake up to sunny skies and 26C (79 F), as we did a couple of weeks ago, and it’s going to be a good day.  Wake up to glum, sodden skies, and that […]

Gold and Green Warm Summer Salad

  Remember last week, when I crowed about summer finally arriving in Southern Ontario?  Well, little did I know that that single day would constitute the entire season!  As of this week, we’re waking up to a distinct chill under ever-darkening skies;  there’s condensation on my car windows when I slip into the driver’s seat; and the […]

Flash in the Pan: Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] Over the […]

Vegan Molten Chocolate Cakes

[Disclaimer:  With all the responses I’ve gotten to this cake–good AND bad–I felt it necessary to point out that I created this recipe as a response to all the hype over a particular cookbook that has taken the spotlight over hiding spinach in a chocolate dessert. As I mentioned in the original post about sweets […]
