The long weekend is FINALLY here and because of that, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite staple recipes for summer 2018. (Warning: the following photos may induce severe hunger) If you’re Canadian or American, or are planning to get together with friends or family this weekend (or any weekend!), I promise you that these burgers won’t disappoint and will quickly become a crowd pleaser. Easy to make, super delicious and a recipe that feeds 6, these burgers are a great way to kick off the warm weather and celebrate the 4th of July and Canada Day! Good food, good company, warm weather… what more could you ask for?! 

Vegan Mini Pizzas with Creamy Garlic Dip

Let’s get something straight: people LOVE their pizza. With over 3 billion pizzas sold in the United States each year, pizza lands itself amongst the most popular dishes year after year after year.  Some people even consider pizza an entire food group, and come to think of it, I have actually never met a person that didn’t like pizza! And for good reason: it is really delicious! It is savoury, comforting and satisfying. It hits all of the right spots, and while I personally don’t consider pizza an entire food group, I must admit that I love it too! A lot.

Pizza is the perfect party food and always a crowd pleaser, so when I started thinking about what I’d be serving at my Super Bowl party this year, I knew I had to include it on the menu. But I couldn’t stop there; no pizza is complete without a creamy garlic dip. Any of my memories of pizza pre-going-vegan always included a creamy garlic dip, and so I started experimenting to recreate the dip I once loved. The recipe below not only replicates the dip I used to get from pizza chains, I think it improves it! It is carnivore approved, devoured every time it’s made and requested each and every get together we have. I do warn you though, there is enough garlic to ward off vampires! So if you and your guests aren’t heavily into garlic like we are, start off with less in your recipe and work your way up.

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.
