Healthy And Satisfying: Vegan Butternut Squash Soup Recipe


by: Nicole MacPherson


The leaves are beautiful colours and the sky is blue, but there is a definite chill in the air. Fall is such a pretty time of the year, but I spend most of it acclimatizing to the frosty mornings and brisk winds. "Put on another sweater," is my mantra, but on these chilly days, I like to have something that warms me from the inside out. That's right, I'm talking about soup!

Vegan Kitchen Hacks: Substituting Heavy Cream


by: Nicole MacPherson

1/2 cup raw cashews
1/3 to 1/2 cup water

Addictively Delicious: Caramel Corn Recipe


by: Nicole MacPherson


Hey yummy mummies, want to cook? This caramel corn is the single most addictive substance since Walter White's crystal meth. Or so I've been told; I've never actually sampled Walter White's crystal meth. I'm just going to assume that it is, because any time I make it I immediately break it into pieces and divide it into containers to give away; if I don't do this, I WILL eat it all. There are no half-measures for me.


The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Nicole loves food!  She loves cooking, baking, grocery shopping, and just wearing her apron that sports a cupcake motif.  For the most part she avoids processed and packaged foods and loves to create recipes based on her craving-of-the-day. Nicole is a longtime vegetarian (sometimes vegan) who lives in Calgary with her husband, two sons, and a male dog.  Her testosterone-infused house is one full of meat-lovers, and she ties on that cupcake apron to incorporate her family’s love of meat into her own meatless meals. Vegetarian and vegan meals can be simple and delicious — and can easily be adapted for those who are on Team Carnivore.   

Join Nicole as she divulges tips and tricks for creating meals, snacks, and desserts that appeal to the whole family, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
