roasted cauliflower and white bean salad

This hearty vegan roasted cauliflower salad with cannellini beans, chewy kamut, and toasted pine nuts is great warm or cold. I bought a Christmas tree on the weekend.

toast for dinner – spiced saucy corn on toast

The last week has been a late golden surge of summer. After a fairly chilly late August, the little burst of warmth and sun was so welcome, fleeting and fickle though it may be. I always find this time of year a bit melancholy, and it seems this year more than ever. Everything is dying,…

Today I’m be finishing my last day of work before the summer holidays, typing furiously on my laptop while sitting on a train speeding towards the airport. Talk about down to the wire! Then just a hop, a skip, and a jump (read: 17 hours in transit) and I’ll be back in Vancouver for a…
