12 Dec, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

Just last week, I shared with you that President’s Choice had released their brand new PC® Insiders Collection™ with over 70 new items for the holiday season.  They had challenged me to take part in their #PCDishOut campaign where I had to make and create dishes with some of the items from the line. Now because I was feeling so inspired, not only did I create one recipe but I created two recipes! These recipes fall into the Brunch and Dinner categories from the new PC®…

When the lovely people over at Choc., an LA/Brooklyn-based gluten-free, organic brownie company asked if they could send me some samples to taste and write about, I think I fell off of my chair. Not only have brownies been one of my very favorite sweet treats for the past twenty-three years of my life, I actually think “brownie” may have been my first word. I’m gonna be real with y’all, brownies are pretty easy to screw up. They are a…

Vegan Home Cookin’ with Gillian: Chocolate Pie

4 Apr, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

Have you ever had a daydream about pie? I have. More than once if I’m being honest. Some of those times were about cherry pie or my grandma’s apple pie but a lot of them are about a chocolate pie I had at a bakery when I lived in Chicago. Sadly, I don’t live there anymore and sadder still, it wasn’t vegan. Something about that rich silky texture with the whip cream bewitched me and I haven’t stopped thinking about it…

Chai Choco 1

If you’ve ever been out drinking with me, you know that I swear by coconut water as a hangover cure. But it’s not just for hangovers: it’s perfect after a hot day outside, or a workout. It’s really hydrating, with no added sugar, and full of potassium and magnesium. When I found out that they were venturing into chocolate territory, I was pretty intrigued. Normally, I’m not a chocolate-loving person, but Jax Coco has managed to blend the natural tartness of…

Outside of a beautiful building in the East End of Toronto, I met my photographer for the night, Yuli Scheidt. We were both surprised we had never noticed the converted condo building and made our way to the lounge  (where we discovered this was an old CBC building) to participate in a wine and chocolate tasting organized by Grain-Free JK Gourmet. The national producer and distributor of healthy and all-natural baking flours, mixes and snacks just launched a line of…

Bûches De Noël

It’s almost embarrassing to admit that I’ve never had a chance to experience the wonder that is Nadège until recently. Having a rare opportunity to get a glimpse into the genius that is Chef Nadége Nourian, I came prepared with the knowledge that I was going to be experiencing magic. Tucked away atop Nadège’s charming Queen West storefront is a working kitchen that has evolved into an event space. This tiny oasis was the perfect backdrop for an afternoon tasting of…
