Verona’s Tips: What to Consider When it Comes to CountertopsOne of the most exciting choices you will make regarding your new custom kitchen is the countertop. The cabinets are usually more demure, staying with a natural wood, a stained wood or white, black or grey (the newest colour to become popular). But you can really add drama, glitz and texture with the countertop. I think of it as the “pop” like the way your purse or shoes can accentuate any outfit with some colour. The fantastic thing about counters is that there are so many choices, you can really make your kitchen unique.

Healthy eating is a way of life for our family. I’ve found some great alternative recipes over the years. This is one of my favourite autumn recipes. – Verona
2 cups gluten-free ginger snaps
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup maple syrup
12 ounces silken extra-firm or firm tofu
2 cups cooked pumpkin puree
½ cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 generous tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To make the crust, crumble gingersnaps in a food processor or place them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Place crumbs in a bowl, add oil and syrup and stir until mixture sticks together. Place mixture into a lightly greased 9” pie plate and press to form ¼” thick crust.
To make the filling, wrap tofu in towels and press to remove excess water. In a clean food processor bowl, process tofu until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and process again to incorporate all the tofu. Add remaining filling ingredients and process until smooth and well combined.
Pour filling into pie crust. Cover edges with foil to prevent burning and place pie in preheated oven. Bake 50 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, cool and serve. (From the book, Living Without.)
