This pizza is awesome. Its sweet crust combined with the caramelized onions give it a flavour that you’ll definitely want again. After you finish one, you’ll wish you’d made two. The preparation seems complicated because it has many parts; truth is, it’s only time consuming! You can do everything in the order below, then continue to the next section instead of waiting.

This is the best cookie recipe I have ever tasted. Chewy and flavourful cookies that just melt in your mouth. You’ll probably melt too when you try a batch of these. Even my dad loves them… and he loves cookies!

The first time we made this we immediately fell in love with it! It’s such a great recipe for people that don’t like to cook. Lots of vegetables, lots of flavour, and lots of yummy leftovers for days afterwards! I like to have it with multigrain toast on the side, it makes me go mmm every time!

The word ‘chai’ is Hindi for tea, so if you ever hear anyone saying ‘chai tea’ you should beat them with your club of redundancy club. This recipe makes about 6-8 cups of delicious hot chai, great for cold evenings or spicing up hot ones!

8 slices fresh ginger
8 cardamom pods (split and seeded)
13 whole cloves
1.5 sticks cinnamon
2 black peppercorns

4 bags black tea
400 mL soy milk

Combine first ingredients in a slow cooker. Leave to simmer on high for 8 hours. Add the bags of black tea to steep for 5 minutes, then add the soy milk and serve hot!

French Immersion Toast

Recipes, February 25, 2010 at 08h17

This is a quick and easy breakfast that I like to make every once in a while. The batter is consistently good, so the extra boost of greatness comes from using a good bread. It takes me about 30 minutes to have 4 or 5 slices cooked. Good morning!

– batter –
1 banana
1/3 cup soy milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract (not artificial!)

sliced bread

Blend the bananas, soy milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in a blender until it is smooth. Pour the mixture onto a plate. Dip the slices of bread into the mix, coating each side. Fry in margarine in a medium-hot skillet until each side is golden brown, flipping once. Serve with maple syrup or a nice fresh berry sauce.
