Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton Alberta! Vegan Heaven!

I just wanted to take a minute and share my favorite place to eat, the Hotel Macdonald here in Edmonton AB.

Let me start off by saying this hotel is amazing, it is beautiful beyond words and they cater to vegetarians and vegans! The food they serve is amazing and they take the time to ensure every detail of the meal is perfection.

They have a brand new vegan menu to choose from but if you want something else, let them know and they are more than happy to make it for you! They have made my husband and I amazing 7 course meals for special occasions, delicous breakfasts and casual lunchs.

If you are ever in Edmonton visiting, stay at the hotel or stop by to enjoy the amazing cuisine!

French Toast!

This past weekend I wanted to try a breakfast I use to love, french roast. I saw a book called Vegan Yum Yum and found a great recipe for just that! I would highly suggest everyone who wants amazingly quick, pretty and yummy vegan food to get this book, it's excellent!

Vegan Yum Yum also has a blog so just click the link for some terrific ideas!

my husband was SO happy when he woke up to the smell of the french toast! I added some berries and maple syrup and let's just say they didn't last long!

Chocolate Chip Scones!

Oh my goodness! Things have been so crazy here! I unfortunately severely sprained my ankle and have not been able to stand around and bake in the kitchen. Hubby has been taking great care of me but I was getting antzy so I thought scones would cheer me up!

These tasty ones are from "The Joy of Vegan Baking" and are pretty simple to make. I love them alone or with a little fresh Jam! They are not exactly "fat free" but hey, I deserve a little treat after my ankle injury! LOL!

I will be posting more now that I am mobile so keep an eye out for some yummy new treats (and disasters no!)!
