This vegan zucchini banana bread has been my go to snack these past few weeks. A great way to use up zucchini, this recipe makes two delicious loaves. Eat one right away, slice and freeze the other (I separate the slices with parchment paper). With a hint of cinnamon and crunchy walnuts, my favourite way to eat this is topped with a generous amount of tahini (or peanut butter) and fresh blackberries!
I love bagels.
After having lived in Montreal for several years, I make a point of bringing back bagels each time I visit. I have even been known to have an empty suitcase in tow for the sole purpose of bringing back the amazing St.-Viateur bagels. Dense and chewy with a faintly distinct sweetness Montreal bagels are always cooked in a wood fire oven. Although there are a handful of Montreal-style bagelrys here on the west coast, nothing compares to a true Montreal bagel hot out of the fire torn apart and dipped directly in cream cheese.
Making my own corn tortillas was always something that I found intimidating. I was convinced that a tortilla press was necessary and without one I wouldn’t bother. Instead opting to buy premade corn tortillas which are almost always disappointing, too dry, too thick and often cracking upon consumption. But this past winter my partner and I spent a few months traveling around Mexico, and my view on homemade tortillas was forever changed. All of a sudden my eyes were opened to what a handmade tortilla could be.
