Vegan Romanian Cozonac (De Post)
Cozonac is a classic, sweetened yeast bread originating from Romania. The citrus-scented sweet dough is twisted around a nutty filling, creating a spiral design once baked. It is traditionally made with butter, milk and eggs. This time, I’ve decided to create a vegan version which has that same delicious and comforting taste.
Orange and Hazelnut Yule Log Cake
Burning a yule log is a Christmas tradition that dates back before Medieval Times. Interestingly, the Yule log was initially an entire tree! Families would bring the trunk of the Yule tree inside their houses and stick the largest end into the fireplace to feed the fire over the 12 Days of Christmas. The Yule Log Cake, also known as a Bûche de Noël in French, originated from this old tradition.

6 façons de passer les fêtes en solo
Audrey Lagace vous présente ses 6 façons préférées de passer les fêtes en solo. Que vous soyez seul en raison de la pandémie ou par choix, rien ne vous empêche de vous faire plaisir, vous mettre confortable et prendre soin de vous. 1. Fais-toi une beauté Commence la soirée tôt et mets-toi belle comme si tu étais invitée à aller dans un souper de Noël chic dans ta belle-famille.

Psst… Guess What? You’re Supposed to Enjoy Christmas
Memories over measurements this time of year folks! Physical change is temporary but psychological change can be long lasting and lead to a more challenging time changing the physical. Permanent physical changes take time and too many people are getting caught up in the fear of weight gain around Christmas, rather than embracing this time of the year. That’s not to say your five-a-day consists of Terry’s Chocolate Oranges but allowing yourself to have those festive treats in moderation (or even slightly over) will have no lasting impact on your physical health; it could have a major impact on your mental health and relationship with food if you let it…
Vegan Gingerbread Cookies
Here's my favorite gingerbread cookies recipe. Soft in the centers, crisp on the edges, and with a perfect marriage of molasses and winter spices. This brown sugar-sweetened holiday goodness won't last long on your festive table. And did I say that I made everything vegan too? Can you believe it? They taste exactly like the traditional ones we used to made when I was younger. Your taste buds and the animals will thank you.
Has this ever happened to you?
It’s time to gather with your loved ones to celebrate and you can’t wait to tell them about your current accomplishment (academic success, new project, motherhood, creative hobby…) and to hear from them. You are proud of yourself and you really wish that your loved ones share that too. But...
Hot Spiced Apple Cider
This hot spiced cider recipe is one I learned from my mom, who would make it every year around Hanukkah. We would have friends and family over, light the Hanukkah candles, and enjoy a hot (and usually slightly alcoholic) glass of cider. Although this year will probably be different, I know that wherever I end up celebrating the holidays, I will be making this cider and feeling like I’m back home.
