It’s been ages since I posted a recipe. And seeing as food is the heart of this blog that fact makes me a little sad.
I have been in a bit of a kitchen creativity slump recently. I do still cook most nights but meals have become simple and routine and until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t baked in months. Continue reading “Recipe: Vegan Strawberry-Banana Ice Cream”
100 years ago today, the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli, Turkey.

Either way, I love it; I love the beans, I love the chilli, I love the spices, I love the margaritas that accompany it… and of course, I love the variety of vegetarian options available.

Summertime calls for salad. And not just lettuce and tomatoes; that’s not a salad – that’s lettuce and tomatoes. For a true salad, I like to experiment with flavours and textures and colour. Continue reading “Recipe: Summery Beetroot and Potato Salad”
I haven’t baked in a while but as I have the house to myself this weekend, I thought I’d make the most of it! Continue reading “Recipe: Zesty Vegan Orange Muffins”
