This Healthy (And Quick) Take on Linzer Cookies Is Here to Save the Holidays

This Healthy (And Quick) Take on Linzer Cookies Is Here to Save the Holidays

December 24, 2019

We made it. It’s December 24. Before we break out our January resolution pants, though, we’ve got some healthy and quick holiday cookies to squeeze in.

PSA: making linzer cookies isn't easy. They look and are extra. The shapes. The sandwich technique. The perfect dusting of powdered sugar. Who has time for that when you still need to decorate your Christmas tree which you haven’t bought yet, cook a five course Christmas dinner, wrap your Christmas presents that Amazon delivery guy should deliver today (fingers crossed) and keep your sanity while handling all this Christmas jazz.

Happy almost the end of December kids. 

We can’t believe it’s already time for the December playlist. Scratch that, we can’t believe that Christmas is happening tomorrow! It’s absolutely insane how fast the month — and year — has flown. Are you last minute Xmas cooking? Got all your last minute holiday shopping done? Like with last month’s playlist, here’s hoping this last minute mix of tunes will be a good one to have on in the background as you navigate the days ahead. We’ve included several low key songs this month (perfect for curling up with some cocoa by the fire), as well as plenty of upbeat tracks that’ll energize you to finish that last bit of gift wrapping and cookie making. And, no Christmas carols! (we hate to admit it, but we maxed out on them about a week after Thanksgiving. Total bah humbug, we know.)

GOT THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS? LET'S MAKE SOME HERBED CASHEW CHEESE + CRANBERRY CROSTINI

November 30, 2019

Ah, Thanksgiving leftovers. What’s not to love!

It’s easy to figure out what to do with all the mashed potatoes and pie (eat it, duh) – but what about the extra can of cranberry sauce and all of those leftover herbs in your crisper drawer?

Make use of both in this recipe for this decadent Herbed Cashew Cheese and Cranberry Crostini. The best part? You can use either canned cranberry sauce or homemade/fresh, and you can mix and match the herbs you have leftover (we love the combination of fresh rosemary and thyme).

Let’s Creep It Real: This Olive Tapenade Is So Wickedly Good You Are Going To Finish It All In One Sitting

October 31, 2019

Happy Halloween! If you're throwing a Halloween party, you have to serve more than candy and alcohol. We made this olive tapenade the other evening and honestly we could NOT stop eating it. Those little crunchy pieces of toasted rice cakes topped with ample quantities of olive goodness were going down like gangbusters.

IF YOU AREN'T MAKING PUMPKIN SOUP IN OCTOBER, ARE YOU REALLY LIVING?

October 12, 2019

Fall means different things to different people. Some of us love the crunch of leaves underfoot; some savor a crisp autumn breeze; some want nothing more than a mug full of hot liquid spiked with seasonal flavours.

But let's not kid ourselves: at this time of year, it's really all about the pumpkin. Maybe we're just pumpkin enablers, but if you ask us, there's nothing wrong with a seasonal pumpkin addiction. That's why we are sharing with you today our favourite pumpkin soup recipe for those chilly nights.

NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL FROM NOW ON

September 21, 2019

After shutting our business (including our website) on September 20 to participate in the Digital Climate Strike, we are back. We took this Friday off to think about what we can do as individuals and also what we can do as a company to help fuel the change. We believe in using our business as a force for good. That’s why we’re calling upon other business leaders, and also our customers, to support the climate strike alongside The Sustainabiliteens here in Vancouver (learn about a strike near you here).
