12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 8: [Recipe] Vegan Banana Bread

We make banana bread a LOT in our house – almost every weekend. This is mostly because our daughter loves to bake with me, she loves banana bread, and this recipe is one of the easiest banana bread recipes you’ll ever come across. I usually add a handful or two of chocolate chips to the loaf, and some sprinkles too if that’s what my girl wants.

Oh, and this banana bread recipe is now my favourite. No joke. It’s the go-to recipe for banana bread in this house – I think it stays more moist than most other recipes I’ve tried.

12 Frilly Days of Christmas 2015, Day 7: [Recipe] Maple Dijon Green Beans

Maple dijon green beans – a very simple recipe and a favourite in our house. Three happy diners sitting around the table, just four ingredients, and about five minutes.

I have been so excited about posting this recipe – it really is absolutely delicious, and just so simple. We default to using this recipe for our supper side dish all the time. We had them just a couple of nights ago and my husband asked me if I thought we could put the sauce on other vegetables too – that’s how much we like this recipe.

[Recipe] Black Bean Soup

Soup!

Soup always reminds me of being a kid. I have so many distinct memories of soup as a child.

I remember sitting at my Nannie’s table eating Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom at lunch time. I’d bike from my school to Nannie’s house for lunch, then quickly back to school. Cream of mushroom was always on the menu.

I remember so many evenings when tomato soup and grilled cheese was our supper. Once again, a Campbell’s canned soup. To this day, it’s still one of my favourite meals.

I remember weekend lunches of Lipton Noodle soup, the envelope of yellow broth and fine noodles. I loved it. I’d scoop out and drink all of the broth first, and leave the noodles for last.

Soup’s just a part of everyone’s childhood isn’t it?

[Recipe] Cashew “Sour Cream”

If you checked out the blog last week, you saw that I made a cashew “cheese” sauce. I am currently on a diet to eliminate gluten, dairy, and soy.

Well, it’s become quite apparent that I am quite a dairy princess. I am really missing my dairy. I never thought I ate much dairy, but when you’re paying attention for the purpose of avoiding it, you really realize how much of the stuff you do eat. My major downfalls in the dairy department are cheese (glorious CHEESE!) and butter. And if it’s summertime, you’d better believe I eat a lot of ice cream. Heck, I eat it in the winter too. When I’m around, ice cream just isn’t safe.

[Recipe] Cashew “Cheese” Sauce

Cheese-free cheese sauce.

Why? WHY?

I am currently undergoing an elimination diet to get to the bottom of some nagging health issues. Nothing too serious, just nagging stuff. My amazing naturopath suggested I go through an elimination diet to see if some of the nagging issues had underlying food-related causes.

I’ll admit that at first I was pretty resistant, but I know my way around food and food alternatives, and I can’t see any harm in doing the elimination diet, so I got on board.

No dairy. No gluten. No soy. One month.
