ginger-cashew nori rolls


I have officially lost my rep as never skipping a Meatless Monday – I hate that it has been so many weeks without a recipe here from me. Between taking a bit of a break and having a kitchen in full reno (I currently go up the hill to Dad’s house to use the kitchen there), I haven’t been blogging as much.

I am jonesing to get in the kitchen and cook, though – all this time off is doing for me is making a very long list of creations I cannot wait to get to. Some delicious ideas come out of this brain, you guys. You will see soon. Kitchen is probably 3 weeks from completion.

That said, I could not skip both of the weeks featuring nuts. Being plant based, nuts are one of my favorite ingredients to work with – they are extremely versatile and the possibilities are endless.

Each of the following recipes have nuts as a major component. Enjoy:

As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder–and the appetite for food and creativity grow 😉 Your renovation is so exciting that I’m sure everything will be worth the wait!

I was thinking about you on my way home from the gym this morning – little did I know you’d be back today!! I’m so sorry that it’s the day before a bit of a MMAZ break, but I know you’ll keep up the creativity without me. I miss your amazing food posts!! :)


12 Kristina Sloggett November 5, 2013 at 5:15 pm

no problem … it will take a bit for me to be back in the ‘full’ swing of things, this is probably perfect timing actually! 😉


13 Emma November 4, 2013 at 2:38 pm

Too much deliciousness to handle here! Everything looks amazing but those chocolate fudge fig truffles have got me drooling!!
Don’t worry about the little break. We’re all still here reading :)
