The easter recipes you didn't know you needed until today. This year it definitely feels like easter weekend sneaked up on me with all the madness going on in the world with COVID-19. But it's in these times that we find solace in the quality time we get to spend with loved ones and "breaking bread" like Barbara Coloroso says. "There is something profoundly satisfying about sharing a meal. Eating together, breaking bread together, is one of the oldest and most fundamentally unifying of human experiences." - Barbara Coloroso I've...

I can still remember 7 year old me trying to convince my mom that soda floats weren't dessert whenever we went to the Spur or Wimpy diner. Most people don't have the slightest idea what a soda float is, and that's so sad. A soda float is the glorious marriage of a glass of cold soda (my favourite was creme soda) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. When the ice cream starts to melt it makes this fizzy deliciousness. This can be enjoyed with a...

The taste of a summer celebration with a hint of floral and fresh strawberries. Are you a pancake or waffle type of person? Because waffles are basically pancakes with abs. Another reason I believe waffles trump pancakes is because they're the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Debate closed. So let's get waffling! Gluten-free and vegan waffles that are crispy? This used to a myth in the TGR kitchen until now, my friends. And with summer being in full swing what...

With Medjool dates, maca and mesquite for a hint of salted caramel. In general, I'm more of a sweet tooth when it comes to breakfast. I also always try and keep it healthy and balanced especially in the week. This toasted coconut smoothie is the perfect combination of delicious and nutritious. Let's get blending! Ingredient break down I chose to use pea protein because I prefer the taste to whey protein, but you can use any protein of your choosing; vanilla, chai, maybe even chocolate for extra decadence. The addition of...

Creamy vegan matcha popsicles with a white chocolate drizzle, pistachio, and strawberries. Any good café worth its salt is serving matcha lattes these days.

Popsicles are one of my favourite treats to snack on and cool down all at once a hot summer's day. Ingredient break down Coconut yoghurt Loaded with probiotic benefits you can make your own coconut yoghurt. You can also use regular greek or plain yoghurt . Matcha I LOVE matcha and using...

Vegan laksa with soba noodles and crispy chickpeas. When it comes to laksa it's all about taking that extra few minutes to fry off the spicy and aromatic paste that will play off perfectly against the creaminess of the coconut versus the acidity of the lime and freshness of the coriander and mint making it a well balanced laksa. In most recipes online you'll see that there is fish sauce added for that unami taste (aka 5th taste), but I'm not so keen on fish sauce as it's just too...

Easy, quick and tasty spiced orange and cocoa overnight oats. I HATE overnight oats. Well, used to hate it until I discovered that adding less chia seeds and warming it up before eating it really makes a HUGE difference in my opinion. The nice thing about overnight oats is that it really saves so much time when you really just have time to grab-and-go in the morning. It's also a really quick and easy thing to prepare the night or even weekend before. There's also countless ways you can...

Easy, delicious homemade bagels or should I say BAE - GOALS. Friends ! How exciting ? This recipe makes it possible to make and enjoy homemade vegan, paleo bagels with only 6-ingredients. The very first time I had a bagel was at a random Bed & Breakfast in between Las Vegas and San Francisco where we stopped at for an average bed and average American Breakfast. Exactly like it should be on an American road trip, I guess. Even though it was back in 2015 and I...
