Well that’s almost 2012 over as we welcome in the new year with a cheeky glass of fizz, listening to some of our favourite playlists and planning our resolutions for the year coming. I’m sticking with the ones I mentioned earlier, they seem like a good starting point and are achievable (she says optimistically). So in the spirit of getting back to some clean eating, Saturday Night was burger night which I served with a side of spicy sweet potato wedges and salad, which were just yummy, but most importantly, there were left overs for Sundays lunch…always plan ahead! So […]
Just before Christmas I had an inkling to make some vegan fudge, I’d seen a few recipes that involved peanut butter and I thought it sounded fabulously delicious so I created my own little medley on the basis that I used to love rum and raisin fudge, but having only brandy in the house, I thought it would be a worthy substitute (I was right too!). Right off I have to say, the fudge didn’t really work out the way I wanted… the taste was there, but the fudge was just too soft and just wouldn’t harden to the consistency […]
Broccoli & Red Pepper Tagliatelle served with a Spicy Satay Sauce – Clean Eating & Vegan, takes less than half an hour to prepare!
Ok, I’ll be the first to admit, I have gone totally overboard on all the sweet stuff this December. In my excitement in trying to make as many vegan sweet treats that I could possibly think of, I lost track of keeping our diet “clean”… but I had to give them a go didn’t I?? So the fridge is now empty of the decadent treats, having just finished off the Brandy and Raisin Fudge Cups (one last ridiculously sweet recipe to come) and I’ll be looking at making some clean, fabulously healthy whilst still seriously delicious goodies that we can […]
Christmas Roulade stuffed with mushrooms, lentils, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and a nut crust layer, served with all the trimmings!
This was our first ever Vegan Christmas and it was wonderful, truly wonderful. The sun was shining, the kir royale was chilling in the fridge and we had our festive sound track on in the back ground, ’twas perfect. Now we had spent a lot of time debating on what would be our centre piece for Christmas Dinner and we decided up a delicious stuffed Roulade from mouthwateringvegan, it sounded fabulously tasty and would see us right through until boxing day left overs. We spoke with our families, skyped and wished everyone Merry Christmas, then I took myself to the […]
I was having a look for some DIY Fashion inspiration and saw these stunning shoes that seem very straight forward to make and would look FABULOUS for a party, especially with your favourite little black dress. So Sex in the City, what’s not to love? I then got to searching for Faux Feathers to use… not as simple to find as I had initially thought, it took me over an hour of searching before I could find artificial feathers that could be used for this design, so if you do fancy the DIY Fashion tutorial from a pair and a […]
Along with Fondant Fancies and Belgian Buns, my nan and grandad always had some Iced Bakewell tarts on their sweet tray when my sister and I were round for tea and if there is one thing I love, it’s almond/marzipan, anything that tastes remotely marzipany is like catnip to me. So this weekend I just took a little nostalgic notion to make a bakewell tart and see how I got on and I think I did pretty well (if I do say so myself) not only did I make a Tart, but I also made 4 mini Iced Bakewell tarts.
