Aquafabulous! Cookbook Giveaway

Ummm, wait now. How did it get to be December??? Suddenly it’s three weeks to Christmas and I haven’t done a thing.

If you’re like me (and, let me just say, don’t be) and you are panicking right now, maybe I can help.

I mean, I can help you. I can’t help myself, I’m clearly a lost cause.

I am giving away a couple copies of my cookbook, Aquafabulous!: 100+ Egg-Free Vegan Recipes Using Aquafaba. 

Aquafabulous!

This would make a great gift for the vegan on your Christmas list, or your sister/friend/cousin with the egg allergy. You could even keep it for yourself. I promise I won’t tell.  There are over 100 recipes, all vegan (and therefore egg-free), and delicious (I taste-tested every one personally). There’s lots of variety in there, as well, everything from breakfasts to snacks to desserts (especially desserts) and everything in between…

Like, oh, for example:

  • Vegan Chocolate Mousse
  • Pavlova
  • Crepes (both sweet and savoury)
  • Chocolate Waffled Brownie S’mores
  • “Everything Bagel” crackers
  • Vegan Pate

Aquafaba vegan pavlova

So good, right?

Okay, so here’s the deal.

  1. Comment below and tell me what recipe you’d like to see me “veganize.” It’s that simple! The contest will run for a week, ending at midnight on December 12. I’ll then draw one name at random from all the comments, and mail you a copy of my book! Boom!
  2. I’m giving away a second copy on my Instagram feed, click to enter that one as well.

Good luck!! And I wish you all an easy and carefree holiday with zero stress.

 

How to Make Roasted Garlic & Win a $50 Gift Pack from Sabra!

Garlic, glorious garlic!

When I was a kid growing up, we had zero spices in our house. It just wasn’t a thing. Oh, we had salt, but we didn’t even really use pepper–I remember quite clearly having 2 salt shakers instead.

As I got older, and started to learn more about cooking, and therefore seasoning, garlic was probably the first “spice” I ever started to experiment with. At first, it was dried garlic powder, but then later, I went right for the real thing, and started adding raw garlic to my cooking.

I love the flavour it brings. Garlic really is a superstar. And we are not far off now from Garlic Scape season, which is one of my favourite times of the year!

Garlic is an amazing ingredient, but roasted garlic is even more amazing! When you roast it, it becomes sweet and almost nutty. It becomes soft and buttery, and you can add it to so many things–like sauces, which it will help to thicken.

Here’s just a few things you can do with roasted garlic:

  • Add it to hummus
  • Add it to pasta sauce
  • Spread it on toast
  • Add it to salad dressings
  • Add it to soup
  • Add it to mashed potatoes
  • On pizza or nachos

It’s really versatile! Oh–and really simple to make. You don’t even need one of those fancy garlic baker thingies.

To celebrate April as Garlic Month, I’m giving away $50 worth of Sabra products!

The prize includes:

sabra prize pack

  • 5 VIP coupons, redeemable for full-sized product, AND
