Pin It

One of my best days of last summer consisted of a few simple components: a few friends and I rode our bikes to Cartems Donuterie, got two boxes, (including one of each vegan flavour), and continued on to Crab Park.

This rich, thick mousse is every chocolate lover’s dream. It’s also extremely simple to make! I was inspired to create this recipe after enjoying a similar mousse at Wild Rice restaurant in Vancouver, BC.

They are also high in Vitamin C which we all need extra doses of to fight off those coughs and sniffles. I scoured the web and Continue Reading …

It’s me, “Salsa Sam” Shorkey, and since my recent VERY positive juice cleanse experience, I’ve been enjoying a green juice every morning.  In doing so, I’ve also been trying to come up with uses for the copious amounts of wasted pulp!  I saw a “pulp cracker” recipe on my friend Danny David’s page aka “Raw Continue Reading …
