Such an amazing bird in an urban setting. Quite the contrast with the cars moving below. πŸ¦…
.
I love the talons and the feathers blowing in the wind. Absolutely magnificent bird. Not good to feed them though. Hope you enjoy this one. πŸ¦…

Instagram post 2187124406425716944_2050690299 Happy Thanksgiving 🍽 with a vegan plant based meal. No dairy, no meat etc. This is a first for me. Currently I am working on a Plant Based Nutrition certification from @ecornell_online . Really fascinating.
🍽
πŸ½πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ So I decided to give this meal a whirl.
The "ham" is actually Tofu marinated in hot hot spices. Thank you to @yupitsvegan for the recipe. Add my own sourdough stuffing muffins topped with homemade cranberry sauce. For veggies, salad with apples, walnuts, pomegranate arils,  lettuce and lemon dressing.
πŸ…πŸ… Add fresh tomatoes for garnish,and finish with a sweet squash and organic sweet potato mash with pumpkin pie spices. 
Thank you to @robertapal74_

Instagram post 2184343430100190531_2050690299 🍎🍏Organic Apple PieπŸ₯§πŸŽπŸwith sinfully butter crust and sugared organic cranberry @patiencefruitco decorations.  I have working in my pie crust to get the perfect taste and "fork shatter". So this one definitely is a good one.  Using high fat European style butter Churn84 @gayleafoodscoop, the crust rolls beautifully and bakes nicely. 
Using pie filling recipe from @bakerhands Tara Jensen, the apple filling is deeeeeelucious. Thanks Tara. Happy Thanksgiving to you. πŸ₯§πŸ₯§
πŸ₯§πŸπŸŽ
I tend to like having an open top with pie crust decorations.  Just the right touch of spices. Cinnamon,  mace, allspice and cloves.

Instagram post 2181365366348089108_2050690299 Working on recipes and pictures for my book, this was my second try at poached pears. The first try tasted great but lacked the styling I wanted. 🍷🍷
🍷🍷
Using a Beaujolais wine and  crystallized ginger, this really packs some taste and wow factor on the plate. Thus recipe is easy and fairly quick with the exception of the pineapple decorations. 🍍🍍
🍍🍍
I noticed a pineapple that was way past its prime so I cut it up only to find that the sugars were Wow. So I cut it up and made thin flower petals out of it and dried them in the oven at a low temperature for a few hours. Then decorated the centre of the flower with orange zest.
❄
❄
Still the plate seemed to lack something,  so I added some rock candy to the juice on the plate.  That added some jewelry to the plate. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚
πŸ·πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ
Recipe is posted on my website.  Link in the profile.  I hope you give it a try.  Enjoy my friends and happy Wednesday πŸ˜‹

Instagram post 2177760565317277714_2050690299 Wahoo eggless🍌 banana bread.🍌 This recipe is a lower calorie banana bread. It uses  organic silken tofu instead of eggs. This acts as a protein  binder.Taste is enhanced with cut bananas on top. They add moistness, beauty and flavour. Using really ripe bananas with highly developed sugars is the best way to have sweetness with less added sugar.

On October 27th 04:45 you passed away.πŸ™ I was so lucky to be with you the night before.  Thank you for being there for me always.  We all miss you so much. I can't stop crying. Your funeral was beautiful though. So many friends, family and students were there to wish you love and  peace. The American Legion in St Peter played TAPS for you.  I was never prouder. The man, father, son, brother, husband, uncle, grandfather and greatgrandfather. πŸ™
I cannot count the times your wise , graceful and gentle counsel saved me and guided me.

Rest in peace Aaron Bernard Everett. But  I know that I will be ok because you were mine and I am yours forever. πŸ™

Thank you to @gustavusadolphuscollege for the flag down at half mast for my Dad. He so loved the college and his students.  His ashes rest at the Chapel Memorial Gardens at Gustavus where the young students will walk by every day. He can keep an eye on them.

Instagram post 2165534048695701728_2050690299 Celebration Fall harvest with a bit of funπŸ₯§Pumpkin pie πŸ₯§with a canola oil pie crust. The chocolate is avocado mousse piped on. The whipped cream is actually vanilla flavored yoghurt which I find keeps its form better.
The pie filling sweetened with monkfruit so it is #lowcarb.  It is aged one day with lots of Ceylon cinnamon,  mace, allspice, cloves and ginger. 
Easy to make and even easier to eatπŸ₯§πŸ₯§

Instagram post 2162491364042312243_2050690299 Is it a real Rose? NoπŸ˜‚πŸ₯€Sugar roseπŸ₯€ and leaves made from gum paste.  This was the last thing that I made in my class last weekend at the @canadasbakingandsweetsshow. It was fascinating to see the raw gum paste how to transform it bit by bit into Rose petals and leaves. The texture and shaping is so interesting to do. There are many steps to get there with various precision tools. 
It is posed on top of my Pony Tail palm for fun. Blends in quite nicely. Enjoy.

Have a great weekend my friends.
