About Me

I was born on Spring Equinox, on the cusp of Aries and Pisces. I’m also a Monkey. (According to the Chinese Zodiac.) I love the creative process in its various manifestations. Reading and writing are a way of life to me. Baking is fun too. Running is therapy. (My remedies for getting out of my writer’s head for a while, if such a thing is indeed possible.) My favourite colour is…well, that’s personal. My favourite book is Wuthering Heights. I eat plants. I need to live close to water and trees. I’m a bit of a nerd and that nerdiness resulted in an M.A. and Ph.D. in Human Geography. I have no desire to travel to outer space but a trip around the world ranks high on my bucket list. Writing has been my chosen method of self-expression from a young age. Last but not least, I bleed red and white, as any proud Canuck.

    1. Thank you! That’s so sweet. I really enjoy your blog as well. Your recipes are delicious and always make my mouth water!

    1. Thanks so much! The recipe I’m posting today is vegan! Well, everything except the icing…but I think a simple substitution with vegan “butter” and the icing could be veganized too!! I’m definitely going to try to post more vegan options in the future. Thanks for your comment!

      1. I just checked out the recipe you posted today – love it! I look forward to more of your healthy and vegan recipes. I don’t know if you’ve ever baked with avocado, but I’ve successfully used it to replace oil in chocolate chip cookies. You can find the recipe I used on this post: http://honkifyourevegan.com/2013/07/02/10-fabulous-vegan-party-foods/. Other healthy tricks I use are to use beans (yes beans!) to replace oil and date paste to replace sugar. My most popular post ever is this brownie recipe I made with black beans: http://honkifyourevegan.com/2013/09/02/super-fudgy-healthy-vegan-brownies-2/.

        Oh, and thanks for following! Celeste :)

      2. Awesome! Thanks for the great suggestions and recipe referrals. I’ve been looking for a good black bean brownie recipe for ages, so thanks so much for sharing yours. Looking forward to trying it soon!

  1. fyi: I am in love with your site! Cupcakes, baking, writing, yoga–you have it all :-) Thanks for stopping over at food for fun for the bacon jam. Glad to have met you :-)

    1. Thank you! The chocolate cake on your blog looks so good all smothered with whipped cream. Mmm! Glad to meet you too! Keep up the great blogging!

    1. Thanks so much! I’ve been enjoying your blog posts too. :) Always great to meet new people with similar interests!!

  2. Just read your about page and we have so much in common. Besides being fellow Eastern Ontarians, Wuthering Heights is one of my favourite books. I reread it a couple of years ago. I came from that part of Yorkshire so it’s dear to my heart. BUT, it’s so hard to pick one favourite book, isn’t it? Of Human Bondage is up there with Wuthering Heights and well, so many more! And I also want to plan a trip around the world. Lovely to e-meet you!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by! I re-read “Wuthering Heights” just a few months ago and fell under its spell all over again. It is dear to heart as well. I’ve been to England many times, but I haven’t been to Yorkshire yet. I agree, “Of Human Bondage” is one of my favourites too. But yes, it’s hard to choose! Lovely to e-meet (I love that!) you too. ;)
