Vegan Danish Bakery

T discovered this link yesterday to the Vegan Danish Bakery in Thornhill, north of Toronto. It looks like a bit of a trek, but I'm excited to head out there and try some of their rice-krispy squares. Has anyone heard anything about this place or been there?

Valley Girl

I watched the sweet 1983 film Valley Girl on late night TV last night as I couldn't sleep. I forgot how much I like it, especially Nicholas Cage's character and the song that closes out the film.

Rainy Saturday

Home brewed ginger tea sweetened with a little agave, and a vegan apricot, walnut and oatmeal cookie. A perfect snack for a rainy Saturday afternoon watching Project Runway and reading this book.

Cooking Catch Up

I've been enjoying spending lots of time in the kitchen over the last day or so, and with rain forecast for the next few days, I'm sure this will continue. Yesterday I made some vegan banana bread with spelt flour from the recipe in the Vegan Yum Yum cookbook. Dinner was soba noodles, store bought Korean dumplings and a simple soy broth with edamame, carrots, beans and spring onions which were lurking in our veggie crisper.

Today I pickled some radishes after being inspired by the tsukemono/Japanese pickles at our local Korean supermarket yesterday. Finally I made some granola with almonds, pecans and golden flaxseed, as well as dried apricots, figs and pears.
