i am 35

Today marks another trip around the sun for me.

While I am not going to sit here and complain about how this past year has been (I am still alive and well!), I will say that I truly only wish one thing for my 35th year on this earth. That is for everyone to have a healthy and happy new year ahead of them.

2020 is almost gone but we are still here. Let’s enjoy it while we still can!

Have a lovely week, all.

recipe: creamy (& vegan) roasted cauliflower soup

Who doesn’t love a hot bowl of creamy soup during the cooler months? There is something so comforting about having that little circle of warmth in front of your face, and inhaling the rich aromas that it gently gives off.

I personally have become a fan of serving soup for get-togethers. It is a nice alternative in having to come up with several appetizers for several people. The best part is that it can be made days or weeks in advance. Simply freeze it upon making it, removing it and heating it on the stove the day of the event!

Not everyone will grab a bowl, but those that do will appreciate its rich and smooth taste. Best of all, it is quick to make and incredibly healthy. I guarantee that no one will guess that it’s vegan.

Creamy (& Vegan) Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Ingredients:

2 tbsp oil
1/2 head of garlic, or at least 5 cloves
1 Spanish onion, chopped
1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups coconut (or almond) milk
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground thyme

Steps:

1. Heat the oil in a large pot. Remove the skin from the garlic, chop it, then press down on it with a knife to release the juices. Throw it in the pot and leave it on medium heat. 

2. While the garlic is cooking, chop the onion and cauliflower and add it to the pot as well. Then add the vegetable broth, coconut (or almond) milk, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Then remove it from the burner and set it aside.

3. Very carefully, transfer the soup into a blender. Don’t add too much when it’s still hot. Blend a little bit, pour it into a new bowl or container, then blend, pour, blend, pour, etc. until the entire soup is a nice puree. From there, you can either eat it on the spot, keep it in the fridge for a few days, or freeze it for a few weeks. It’s up to you! Enjoy!

wilder is two

Our beloved boy will be turning 2 years old on Sunday.

He has changed so much over this past year, going from no teeth to now 18 of them, he is potty trained, talks, sings, knows his colours and ABCs, and so much more! He loves vehicles, animals, and books.

He truly lives up to his wild name, and we couldn’t love him more! Happy birthday, big boy!!
