This Monday is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who served to protect the United States of America. Now, while I may be Canadian, I do spend quite a bit of time in the US, and have many friends and family there – so this holiday has quite a bit of significance for me as well. I know I’ll never truly understand its significance being Canadian, but I still love to honour our southern neighbours and those that fought for such a great country. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the families who have lost loved ones.

Rexall: A Historic Landmark Transformed

This week, I had the pleasure of attending the launch event of Rexall’s newest location in one of Toronto’s most iconic buildings, The Brunswick House. With plenty of my own memories made there with friends throughout the years, truth be told, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I walked through those front doors on Thursday morning.

For many Toronto locals, especially those living nearby, The Brunswick House at 481 Bloor St. W. was nothing short of a neighbourhood hotspot. With a history of live music and many jazz and blues music legends having played on its stage, including Etta James, Buddy Guy, Jeff Healey and many more throughout the mid to late 1900’s, “The Brunny” was and forever will be a landmark in Toronto’s Annex.

Vegan, Kosher For Passover Adaptable

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings are a classic when it comes to parties (or any evenings at home too) or game days. The perfect way to veganize buffalo chicken wings, these cauliflower florets transform into the crunchy, spicy and addictive flavours people love so much in the chicken version. If you’re new to The Vegan Jetsetter, I should tell you that I’m a huge believer that every non-vegan dish can be made into a vegan version that tastes the same, if not better. I’m all about limiting the cruelty to animals, the impact on the environment and increasing the health benefits to your body WITHOUT sacrificing taste, so turning such a popular chicken dish into a vegan version was something I was really excited about. A little research and trial and error and here we are. 
 
You’ll be amazed at how easy these cauliflower wings are to make. They don’t fall apart, which if I’m being honest, is always a concern when creating a batter without eggs, and they store well in the fridge for a couple days. If you’re making them in advance of your party and trust yourself not to devour them before your guests arrive (I had a REALLY hard time not doing this), I recommend  just popping them into the oven for 10 minutes on 400°F right before serving, just to crisp them up again. And voila, you’re good to go! Try seeing if they last the night – I bet they won’t. For the ‘wings’, I used this recipe by Peta. To make it Kosher for Passover, substitute the flour with matzo meal.
