Love At First Bite – Sweetness Sundays

Standard
Pinaloves Organic Bakery, Cookie Varieties

As a newly born vegan for 2013, I can tell you that the transition to vegan cooking has been a purely pleasurable experience for me. I love getting in the kitchen and being creative. Making hot cereal masterpieces with whole grains and fruits, delicious cold grain salads for lunch with decadent avocados and black beans, discovering a million ways to use my newly stocked spice rack while making slow cooker creations for dinner. It takes me back to all the things that landed me in Culinary School at college, that one year of knowledge has never left me, although I did move on to Nursing, my true passion.

Almond Crescents, Gluten Free, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

The only thing I have yet to attempt is vegan baking. Not because I don’t like baking, or because I lack the equipment. Although I must admit that the top of my wish list is a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and a new Cuisinart, as I have neither. What has stopped me is all the ingredients you need to stock up on, many not found in any regular grocery store, in order to make something that is comparable to other home baked fare. I have stocked up on things like Molasses, Organic Cane Sugar, Flax Seeds, Dates, Dried Fruits and Nuts, and Organic All Purpose Flour. I have hunted down Almond Flour, Brown Rice Flour, and Agave Syrup. I have the Maple Syrup and Vegan Margarine in my fridge. I even got the Egg Replacement Mix and a spice grinder in order to make some of the more tricky ingredients. But for the life of me, I have yet to find a recipe to which I can say, “yes, I have all the ingredients I need, let’s bake this baby up!”

Gluten Free – Chocolate and Floral Cookie Collection, $32.00 USD on Etsy.

My brother, being super thoughtful, came for dinner a few weeks back and came in with a few groceries I had needed, surprised me with a box of vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were in a shelf stable box, looked pretty decent on the package, I read the label just to be sure they were vegan, and dove in to try one. Well, they were pretty good, not great, not like my mother’s baking, which is legend – wait for it – dary. But they were certainly the most treat-like thing I had had since going vegan. The problem, the box contained exactly 12 cookies, no bigger than a dollar Loonie coin, and it cost more than six dollars, with tax included. Twelve tiny cookies, average at best, at that price? It seemed insane to me, I knew that I either needed to find a new source of baked goods, or I had better make them myself.

A Platter of Delicious Cookies from Pinaloves Organic Bakery.

So as I have been collecting up vegan cookbooks, and looking at the list of ingredients I need to have on hand, I have also been spending a lot of time searching the web for a recipe to start out with.  I have been grabbing up the ingredients I find when I shop, and have got a good number of things in the pantry now, but not everything, not yet.

Boxed Love from Pinaloves Organic Bakery.

Now, many of you know I spend way more time on Etsy than is healthy for my pocketbook. I am always on the lookout fabulous items that I then must have in my life. After all, what would Foraging For Fab be without Etsy and all the other handmade sellers of wonderful. So every now and again I have a look for vegan goods, particularly from close locations, and when it comes to edibles, Canadian sellers are a must.  So there I was, searching out vegan sources of yummy, and up popped a new seller. The pictures looked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G to me, and gosh, they were from Montreal, Quebec; right here in Canada. And so I discovered Pinaloves Organic Bakery.

Sunflower Oats British Biscuits – Organic, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

These cookies, or little bites of heaven, as I now refer to them come in a variety of amazing flavors and types, and are made to suit many dietary restrictions or needs, not just vegan.  Pina also bakes up batches of Sugar Free, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free treats, in addition to her Vegan offerings.  The cookies are just like the classic home-made versions you love at Holiday Parties or Special Events, but they are something you can enjoy any day of the week with a cup of coffee or a herbal tea.

Vegan – Fruit & Spice Cookie Collection, $42.00 USD on Etsy.

I ordered up a mixed box of cookies, Vegan Fruit and Spice Mix, which held at least 75 biscuits, and a smaller package of 12 Chocolate Pistachio Squares. I quickly got a message back from Pina saying they would be baked up first thing the next morning and then sent out as soon as possible that day.  I have never ordered bakery products through the mail before, so I promptly forgot when to expect them, and went on with my day.

Irish Coffee Whiskey Sandwich Cookie – Vegan, $11.00 USD on Etsy.

When the package arrived before lunch time, just 3 days after my order was placed, I was doing a little happy dance in my apartment. They looked absolutely lovely, just as they were pictured in the Etsy Listings. There was even a little surprise inside the box, a new sandwich cookie recipe a Vegan Irish Coffee Whiskey delight, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. It was all so perfectly packaged, I even took some pictures with my phone to show my friends and family, or make them drool, either way I was too happy to notice.

Vegan – Chocolate Pistachio Squares, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

I decided to try one of the Chocolate Pistachio Squares right away. I am not very good at delaying gratification when it comes to cookies, or most other things to be honest. I was hooked from the very first bite. These cookies are special, they have that perfectly home made love baked in feel to them. They taste delicious, they look so pretty yet in-perfect, the way homemade cookies do, and they just hit the right spot with all that I was looking for in a vegan treat. I had to read the label again to be sure it was in fact a vegan product, it was just too much like a crumbly buttery chocolate refrigerator cookie from my pre-vegan days.

Love Lemon – Gluten Free Sandwich Cookies, $11.00 USD on Etsy.

I quickly headed to my office so that I could leave feedback for Pinaloves Organic Bakery on Etsy, just too happy to wait a minute longer to tell everyone how very special these cookies are. I also checked out the Pinaloves Organic Bakery Website and Shop, where I got even more thrilled to learn about all the other wonderful things going on at Pinaloves, and got a lot of great information from the shop’s FAQ page. There is very specific information about the ingredients and the different dietary specialty cookies that they bake, among other yummy looking cakes and pastries. There are different package sizes, box combinations, and varieties available to suit any need.

Gluten Free – Chocolate and Floral Cookie Collection, $32.00 USD on Etsy.

I then caught a ride over to the shop’s Etsy Page, and left a little thank-you note with Pina and company, just so appreciative of the speed and professionalism ascribed to my order, and the joy these cookies brought me.

Cholesterol Free, Low Fat Vegan Chocolate Loaves with Chocolate Ganache

I think the best thing about these cookies and treats is that they cater to some very specific dietary needs, but they are so delicious that everyone will love them, and no one has to feel left out. The Diabetic can have their Biscotti with morning coffee. The individuals with  wheat allergies or Celiac Disease, can have their pick of amazing cookies and treats. Those who are Lactose Intolerant or have milk allergies can indulge without fear. The Vegan can have her cookies and love every single cruelty-free and nutritious bite!

Spelt Hazelnut Almond Cookies – Gluten Free, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

Now, before you get all suspicious about the excessive compliments I am sending the Pinaloves people, I will balance things out a little by saying that these cookies are not free, they are priced in my mind accordingly for the quality of the ingredients, and the time and love put into every one.  They are likely not the thing you will be able to have on hand just for nibbling on any old day of the week. They would make perfect hostess gifts, and would be an impressive thing to put out at parties. The smaller packages of a dozen or so cookies are more likely to an indulgent weekday treat for you and a friend or two, the boxes are a brilliant luxury for special occasions. If you happen to live in Montreal and can get access to these cookies without having them delivered, I think you will find yourself making frequent trips to get your cookie fix.

Sugar Free Biscotti by Pinaloves, $14.00 USD on Etsy.

The only other issue is that these cookies are just to good to last for long in your home. While my large order of goodies lasted about a week, shared with company and my sweet-tooth aside,  they are hard to resist or put away, they are just too delicious, and my sweet starved inner vegan-child pretty much dictated how many of these delicious bites I dove into at a sitting. It is best I not mention that, it’s embarrassing how little self-control I have most days.

Gluten Free – Pistachio Cookies, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

Don’t let that stop you from ordering them though, and don’t delay in checking out Pinaloves Organic Bakery’s Website, Etsy Shop, or Facebook page to catch even more pictures of the delicious offerings available freshly baked and directly to your home. I can assure you they will be baked and shipped with all the love and care you could hope for, and they will become fast favorites of anyone who is lucky enough to sample them.

Vegan Rosemary Raisin Sables, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

You can either buy through Etsy, or shop the online store, whichever mode you happen to prefer.  I have every reason to believe that the service and kind customer care that you will receive, even if it is just asking a question, will surpass your expectations. If you have a local vegan or specialty bakery, by all means give them a visit, the point is to support the small bakeries that are working very hard to establish themselves and serve quality goods made with care, conscious, and attention to detail, and stop buying shelf stable and overpriced goods where possible. Going local isn’t just about produce at the farmer’s market, it means buying things that are made close to home to avoid all the damage that can be done to the environment by shipping boxes of boxes from country to country over land and sea.

Gluten Free Cranberry Orange Cookies, $9.00 USD on Etsy.

I am now going to resist temptation and skip ordering another batch of Pinaloves goodies, at least for today, no promises about tomorrow though. Maybe one day, when I have been making my own vegan baked-goods, I can hope to be as good as the crew at Pinaloves Organic Bakery. If not, well, I am going to get very friendly with the mail-person bringing me boxes full of love on a regular basis. Hope you enjoyed your own Sweet Sunday!

We Should All Have A Dream – Time Travel Thursdays

Standard
Fine Art Print – “Hidden Gems” Ballerina and Saxophone – 5×7 by Aesha Ash, Swan Dreams – A Shop With A Cause on Etsy.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

In February, the United States and Canada share a common observance, a rare thing between our two countries, but a welcome one particularly in this case. February is Black History Month, and it is a time to not just look to the past to find astonishing heroes and heroines that have changed the world as we know it, but a time to assess where we now sit in relation to our goals for understanding and harmony between all persons. This post will feature images of items available right now on Etsy that are particularly evocative as we look at Black History Month, and remember our shared history, and equally importantly, our shared future, for our children, and for our children’s children.

Black History Month is a time to recognize that we share more with our fellow man than we can possibly imagine, and that the differences are the things that make us unique and special in this world.  It was Edmund Burke who first said, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” Burke, a British Statesman and Philosopher, may have said it in the 1700s, but it is just as true today as it ever was.  Ignoring our history, weather it be triumphant or traumatic, only serves to allow us to repeat our mistakes in ignorance. When you know better, you do better. This month’s celebrations are not about placing blame on any person or persons, they are about the strength of the human spirit to survive the most bleak of circumstances, and to show us that we are all capable of great acts of bravery when push comes to shove.

I am not black, I am not a visible minority, unless you consider being female as a minority, statistically it is not.  I consider myself instead an “Invisible Minority”. I am a Jewish woman, and though I am not orthodox in my observances, I do self identify as a Jew. That means that people who meet me in my professional life often assume I am not Jewish.  I have been present when people I consider to be friends have used derogatory terms, even absent-mindedly, in reference to the Jewish people. I was once discussing a shopping trip with a group of fellow nurses when a male nurse over 15 years my senior, stated, “How did you get a deal like that? Did you Jew them down?”

It is a very difficult experience to explain if you have never been a party to it. It is a bit like being slapped in the face by an invisible hand.  It stings, but it goes deeper, it wounds something inside you.  When you realize that this type of thinking is usually something learned early in life from one’s parents or peers, that it takes generations to change the thinking behind it, and that the subsequent slur is often uttered without any conscious intent to wound. I can say that I myself, until that day, had not really examined my own use of certain terms. That single experience was so shocking to me, so life altering, that I cannot help but shudder to imagine the experience of those who face open hostility and violence based on their religion or skin colour, their heritage, sexuality, or race.

When I was a child trading toys with my little friends, we used the term “Indian Giver” quite freely, meant as the ultimate put down for those who took back what they had traded.  My mother pointed out to me at a young age that it was a hateful and ignorant thing to say, and I am grateful to her for it. I know that into my early twenties I was using the term “Gyped” to describe a situation where I felt I had been cheated out of money. It was only after realizing that the term actually referred to a Gypsy transaction, and in light of my own experience with a similar term involving my heritage, that I eradicated the term from my vocabulary. It now brings a great deal of shame to my heart to know that I may have offended someone with my thoughtless and ignorant remarks.

I am in no way a student of Black History, I have learned what I know from reading books, watching television documentaries, and through my general education.  I wish I was able to give you a concise history of Black America and Canada, but I cannot claim that expertise.  What I can do is speak from my heart, and hopefully reach yours, and say that as I know better, I try to do better, I can say that it is an ongoing process, and one we can all take part in.  Racism, bigotry, and racial intolerance is one of the last unspoken taboos in our culture. We often are so uncomfortable with our history, we choose to ignore it.  We are more comfortable discussing sexual harassment, violence, and practically anything else in order to prevent us dealing with racial tension.

I selected the images and items to showcase in this post very carefully, for a variety of reasons. Some are obviously connected to Black History Month, featuring iconic images and persons, while other are less obviously so. As for the photographs, where some might only see the face of a black man or woman, I see the image, but also see the sameness in experience. Who hasn’t taken a picture of a young man about to ship off to war, of a family around a dinner table during the holiday time, or held on to pictures of their ancestors long after the names and connections have gone a bit fuzzy.  That is the beauty of Etsy, you can find the most amazing things, no matter what you are looking for.

In the United States they call their society “A Great Melting Pot”, in Canada, we call it “Multiculturalism”, in both cases, there are groups that remain marginalized for a variety of reasons, and that is our reality, and our failure.  Use this Black History Month to examine your own experiences, how can you do better for your family and by your neighbor.  I start with me, I can only change me, but I hope that by example I can show my young nieces and nephew that all people have value, no matter their colour, creed, or religion. We need to be a part of our community, and by extension our world, by interacting with others. We, each of us, need to develop an appreciation of our differences and dream of a day when no single person ever feels the sting of racism and ignorance again. Martin Luther King Jr. made the saying “I have a dream” famous, but each and every one of us should all have a dream of our own, and leave a legacy of love behind when we are gone, just like Martin Luther King Jr. did.

Fine Art Print – 5×7 – Hidden Gems by Aesha Ash, Swan Dreams – A Shop With A Cause on Etsy.

The image that heads this post, and the one above are the work of a very talented photographer named Aesha Ash, whose Etsy Shop “Swan Dreams – A Shop With A Cause” features many such beautiful images. The reason I wanted to leave a little special note at the bottom of this post, is because a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these stunning images goes towards organizations that endeavor to bring the beauty and benefits of ballet to children and youth in under-served communities. One of my nieces is currently studying classical ballet with a teacher who was herself trained in the exacting Russian Schools of Ballet. At first, my niece was having trouble with the strict attention to minor details and the constant correction of her form, but at some point, it clicked with her. She now sees constructive criticism as a means of making her better, of making her the best she can be.  For a nine-year old girl, I have seen the amazing effect that has had on everything else she does in her life, from daily homework to her downhill skiing, and it is a wonderful thing.  I find the work of the group that Aesha‘s work supports, The Swan Dreams Project, to be truly inspiring.  All children need to find the thing that makes life magical and beautiful, and teaches them to reach for the stars. Please follow the link to Aesha’s Etsy Shop to see more and learn how you can support this project.

It Can Be Munday Everyday – Strange Stuff Saturdays

Standard
SNORTING COKE

When I happened upon the Etsy shop called Boopsie Daisy I did a full-on double-take, and then another. Then I literally doubled over laughing. How can I express the absolute joy, retro-kitsch, colorful silliness that is the work of Missy Munday of Kelowna, British Columbia. It’s like some wonderful childhood dream, enchanted little dolls and creatures playing with everyday objects all on their own. It may seem to be utter silliness, but there is some serious skill involved in the astonishing Fine Art Prints created by Missy. Pay attention to the names of each print, they are just as brilliantly strange as the image itself.

DIRTY BERTIE
MACKIE
OLIVIA

Toys and characters that are so familiar juxtaposed with elements of nature, foodstuffs, and a myriad of pop-culture references make for a purely fun experience. Eye-popping colour and perfected lighting techniques make for the most amazing captures.  Some images are cute in there Kawaii kitschy-ness, others are evocative in their Sad-Eyed Style.  Then there are the images that seem to have vaguely hidden cultural commentary running through them, making them a tad bit disturbing.  Missy’s work is simply spectacular.


DIGGIN THE DOG
MY SUNDAE BATH
WETTY BOOP

All in all, the body of work displayed by Missy Munday is incredible. I can only image what her studio must look like, and how much fun she has combining crazy elements to create her day-glow bright visual feasts.  With close to 300 items in her shop, Boopsie Daisy on Etsy, I can only show you a very tiny sample of her wonderfully weird work.  Her Fine Art Prints feature all the elements I love in strange and odd creations, and some I didn’t even know I would like until I saw them.

LET THEM EAT CAKE
FLOSSY LOVE AFFAIR
SINFULLY SWEET

 Make sure you visit Missy’s shop, Boopsie Daisy, and browse her work. You will laugh, you will do the double-take, and you will more then likely find a favorite from among her marvelously weird fantasy works.  Priced from just $4.00 USD for an ACEO Sized Image [Artist Trading Card] to  $55.00 USD for a Trio Set of 8″x12″ Prints, there is something for every budget.

READ TO ME NANA
HELLO MY NAME IS KITTY
PIG OUT

Missy will create custom listings for you if the image you want is not listed in the size you are looking for, so just drop her a note. What a wonderful gift these prints would make for that oh so hard to buy for friend. You know this is one gift they will never forget. Oh how I love these Saturday posts. Have a strange and wonderful day.

A Is For Awesome – Found On A Friday

Standard

I am admittedly slow to catch on to trends, sometimes I need to get hit over the head with something to realize that it is out there at all. It’s even better when that trend is literally AWESOME. Alphabet Photography, the work of Niagara Falls photographer and entrepreneur Jennifer Blakeley is one of those things that make me feel like I am the last to arrive at the party. Jennifer spent over 2 years traveling the world looking for letters in the things we see everyday. I mean that quite literally, Jennifer found shapes and details in architecture and the environment around her that form letters of the alphabet, and then she came home to create Alphabet Photography. With dozens of options for each letter, this stunning photography takes on a whole new dimension when the individual letters are combined to make words, names, or titles.

Starting at under $40 USD/CDN you can get a lovely piece of artwork on your walls that says more than just about any architectural photography could. While each image alone would be a stunning image, beautiful captures with amazing tone, shading, and depth, combined they have a whole new life. This is not “hit you over the head” obvious word-art, this is subtle, and often you really have to look to decipher the words. Jennifer Blakeley has an amazing eye, as most artists do, for seeing things that others simply cannot. Above is one of the Gifts On A Budget options, spelling out the word DREAM. It is Plaqued and Framed, as is the image below, JOY. Both priced at $39.99.

These sepia toned images of the most popular 3, 4, and 5 letter words, all copyright of Alphabet Photography, are available in simple Plaque Mounts as well, for even more economical options. The simple but sweet word LOVE, shown below, would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift, the Plaque Mount version is available for only $25 USD/CDN.

But my very favorite part of the Alphabet Photography website, and the best part of the concept by far, is the custom Create A Word application. You can type any word into the window and an instant Alphabet Photography Word will present itself. If you want to adjust the individual letters to ones more or less recognizable, or just more to your liking, you can click on the letter in question and select from over a dozen options in matching sepia toned fabulousness. For fun, I played around with my blog name, FORAGING FOR FAB and created the following three images.

These images are screen captures, which is why they have watermarks over each letter. I also did a little editing to add mats and frames in my own fun bright colors, but they are obviously not actual framed works. I hope Jennifer and the team at Alphabet Photography will forgive me for my little cut and paste, these frame colors are not at all like the stunning frames offered by the company. The Art created using the custom Create A Word application allows you to select matting and frame options, each image is an original printed photograph, and they are custom framed and shipped from the studio in Niagara Falls. Framed, matted custom words start from $145 USD/CDN. In addition to the stunning sepia photographs, there is a “found sign/neon letter” option for individual letters. Prices are similarly variable based on the word length. I created screen captured versions below [and at the top of this post] to give you an idea of what I am talking about, using my pen name/nick name KETSY. Of course a real frame and mat, with actual photographs is going to be far more lovely and of course, watermark free.

This bright version would be a great addition to a child’s bedroom decor, or would suit a more retro designed space. The sepia letters seem so classic, I can see them in an office or study, they would fit into most modern homes with ease. There is also a line of products called the Inspirational Series that includes a poster printed on Photographic Grade paper and mounted on wood, with wood frames. These special prints include sentiments, quotes, and inspirational sayings with the Alphabet Photography words. They would make unique gifts and are reasonably priced at under $50 USD/CDN. Below you will find a lovely example for the word BELIEVE. The text quote reads ‘As you believe, so you become’ – Unknown.

There are heaps more wonderful items available from Alphabet Photography, including a full alphabet poster, calendars, wonderful framing options, single letter prints, and now a new design series featuring an amazing ‘Human Alphabet’ featuring high profile members of Gymnastics Canada. This amazingly beautiful work by Jennifer Blakeley features Canadian athletes forming the letters of the alphabet with their bodies, in part to provide support to Canadian Gymnastics Team as they prepare for the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The images are beautiful, inspirational, and so meaningful to athletes and fans of sport worldwide. Find out more about this new project at Limited Time Human Alphabet Art, where 100% of proceeds from the limited edition Inspirational Series and Human Alphabet Poster go towards supporting Gymnastics Canada in the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games. These specific products would make the perfect gift for any gymnast, dancer, or athlete in your life, but you can also use the individual images to create, again, custom words. I am going to close this post with one final image captured from the Create A Word interactive tool, featuring this Human Alphabet, and then send you off to explore all the wonderful items on the Alphabet Photography site. GO TEAM CANADA.
