Bomb-Digity Baking Powder Biscuits


These biscuits are THE BEST!  It is a very rare occasion at our house to eat soup without having a few of these along with it.  They are the perfect blend of spices and flavours in a delicious and perfectly chewy baking powder biscuit.  And the best part is, they are super quick and easy to make.  Usually I'm done making them before the oven is even preheated, which in my opinion is a real treat indeed.  So here's how it's done...

First of all, I'd just like to point out that in the pictures I'm using a standard muffin tin, only because it's all I have currently.  I lightly grease my muffin tins to make it easier to turn out the biscuits, but ideally you could use either parchment muffin cups or a silicone muffin pan instead, thus making the biscuits 100% oil free.  I still need to invest in some silicone bakeware and parchment paper muffin cups, so for the moment, I'm still using my old tins.

So, prep your muffin tin, by either greasing it lightly, or lining it with parchment muffin cups, and preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.


In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, oregano, basil, and salt.  Whisk until combined.


Melt the honey, and combine with the plant milk, whisking until combined.


Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.  I know there's a whisk in this picture, but I actually find it easier to use a large spoon at the point instead, as the mixture is quite thick and tends to gum up the whisk.  Spoon the batter evenly into a standard muffin tin, filling all 12 cups.


Bake your biscuits for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.  Remove from the oven.  If you used muffin cups for your biscuits, you can transfer them to a cooling rack right away.  Otherwise, I like to let them sit for a couple of minutes first before transferring them.  You may want to loosen around the edges of each biscuit with a butter knife to help get them out of the tin.


Serve warm with your favourite soup, or try one of my favourites!

Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Well, these are kind of my faves.  My family goes crazy for them, and they are requested multiple times per week.  It's awesome too, because they are so darn healthy that I don't mind accommodating the requests at all.  We eat them for breakfast, lunch and supper...often.  The amount of sweet potato I use varies greatly, depending on the size of sweet potato I'm using, or what I happen to have on hand.  I've used anywhere from 2-5 cups of sweet potatoes (cooked) and always get awesome results.  I started out using 1/2 a large sweet potato per batch, but lately I use the whole thing and they turn out the same as far as cooking time and consistency, I just get the satisfaction of knowing I'm packing more nutrients into each waffle and the batter ends up stretching farther and tasting a little more sweet and flavourful.  BONUS!
So here's how it's done... Combine sweet potato, apple sauce, plant based milk & honey in a high speed blender.

Chocolate Almond Truffles

If you're looking for a rich, creamy, decadent dessert, that is also quick, easy, and only has 5 ingredients (all of which you'll likely have on hand right now), please allow me to be your new best friend.  These truffles are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, and have a rich dark chocolate taste that you can indulge in guilt-free.  Although the title says they're almond flavoured, you really can make these truffles whatever flavour you'd like.  I've done peppermint, vanilla, orange...whatever suits your fancy / craving.  I've also rolled them in crushed nuts instead of coconut, but coconut remains my personal favourite.

So to begin, line a small bread board or baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Toast your coconut over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic (around 5 mins), stirring frequently.


Transfer the coconut to a small plate to cool as you mix together your truffle ingredients.
Next, combine the cocoa powder, full fat coconut …

Hickory-Maple Smoked Chili

As much as I hate to admit it, it's still winter up here in Canada 😕.  My kids are having a blast on our very own personal snowboarding hill that my husband built in the front yard...but...I'm DONE WITH SNOW!!! 😩  I hate the terrible highway conditions and the black ice, and the drifts, and the whiteouts, and just the overall COLD!  {Sigh...}


I can however take comfort in the kitchen though.  My very favourite part of winter is the soul warming food...soups, warm drinks, fresh breads, and all that good stuff.  Today I'm bringing you a Chili, and the Crumb-Free Corn Bread I serve with it.  This chili is pretty awesome, despite how brown and mushy it looks.  Man, I never realized how ugly chili was until I tried to take pictures of it.  It really isn't a very photogenic food, but I promise you, it's delicious!  As the name implies, it's got a tinge of maple flavour, and some hickory liquid smoke, the perfect blend in my opinion.  As usual, this chili is also pa…
