Nutty Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

I mentioned in my previous post that I just had to make some cookies with my left over lemon and I created a quick batch of these luscious Nutty Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies that have gone down an absolute treat in this house! The recipe will make 8 cookies, just a nice amount to last a few days with a cup of tea (I’m currently drinking echinacia and raspberry) and an episode of Lost.

Simple and Delicious Hot Cross Buns, just in time for Easter.

Last year I had a go at making hot cross buns and I remember that they were OK. I was still in my learning phase of vegan-izing all my baking recipes so the end result, although tasty, wasn’t quite the same as what I remember them to be like. Well this year I am extremely pleased with my little batch of hot cross buns.┬áThis is my practice run as I’ll be making another batch closer to Easter and I might also make some Easter Chocolates/Truffles as well. While I was waiting on my dough rising yesterday I also made a […]

Nacho Coated Spinach Falafel served with Tomato Chipotle Kidney Beans and an Avocado & Coriander Dip

This is a little recipe from Saturday night that I made after being inspired by some of the meals I had while back in the UK. We had some Nacho burgers (they were from the frozen section of the supermarket) and it got me thinking about different coatings for my own recipes, so I put a plan in action and came up with this spicy and delicious dinner. It served 2 of us very well, but with no left overs, which is unusual for me as I always tend to over cater when making burgers and falafel. We’ve eaten all […]

Trio of Afternoon Tea Tartlets, ridiculously easy to make and delicious to eat.

I was pottering around in the kitchen yesterday thinking of what to make and I’d had visions of making a strawberry tart (a big one) and a couple of mini raw tartlets, however I had a major kitchen disaster… I made the large strawberry tart but when I went to slice it, it was a complete mushy mess that pretty much fell apart, I think there was just too much juice coming from the strawberries (even though I had sieved most of the juices out) and it just collapsed the pie. But have no fear… I always make way too […]

Maple Roasted Parsnip & Cannellini Bean Loaf, topped with a Spicy Tomato Sauce

I was swithering yesterday whether to make burgers or a loaf for dinner, but when I seen the parsnips the decision was easy… loaf! When I lived in Scotland I had never had a parsnip, they just weren’t a popular veg, it wasn’t until my first Sunday dinner at Martin’s parents house that I had them served to me and now they are a staple for Christmas dinners and now in my vegetable loafs. They have a great unique flavour to them and are fantastic whether spicy or sweet, in a veggie loaf or a soup, the parsnip is indeed […]

Roasted Red Pepper & Cherry Tomato Tagliatelle with Mushroom & Olive Tapenade

This dish, I shan’t lie, is divine… the flavour you get from the tapenade is incredible, it’s deep and rich and moreish. I’m still gushing about it now,15 hours later, it was that good. The dish itself is fast and easy and would suit everyone (well those who like olives I suppose) you might want to reduce the portion size a little and serve with some crusty toasted bread rubbed with garlic, or even save some of the tapenade to put on the toast, up to you. We just went with a good sized pasta portion with the tapenade stirred […]
