VegExpo 2015 was amazing! My companions and I had a great time browsing through the isles to discover awesome vegan items, local business and so much food. (You get to see my partner reluctantly posing in the first picture too!). I'll highlight my favorites:
Appetizers and Dips

I've cracked it! First with my Hot Cauliflower Wings, now with these onions rings. A batter that requires zero oils or fats to crisp up beautifly in a hot oven. I have many many plans for this. Most definitely will be serving variations of these to people would join our secret dinner parties (more info coming soon, but you can sign up for the mailing list here.)
I first got the chance to meet Kristin from Will Travel for Vegan Food at two of her talks at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival, and it was one of those experiences that changes things. See I had JUST started Plates for Plants at that point in time and her talks about her journey and how to run a successful blog really got me thinking I could turn this into a full time gig.
Spring is definitely in the air now, at least here in Vancouver it is! All the flowers are blooming and the air and sun are warm during the day and satisfyingly chilly at night. This means that casseroles and hearty dishes like this Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie are still very very welcome in the cool evenings. This dish is a delightful twist on the classic I grew up eating. Although it had very different ingredients, this still reminds me of evening with my family as a kid.
How time flies! I haven't posted in awhile, mostly due to the increased efforts I've been putting towards the launch of a personal chef service here in Vancouver. I'm getting SO close to being totally ready and I'm excited (and scared) beyond anything to be doing this. I have a few cooking classes ready to be advertized and will be making annoucements soon as to a schedule and all that. Personal Chef services are up and running, you can check out the services page for more information.
