Avocado Stuffed Lentil Balls with Sweet Potato Wedges & Homemade Hot Sauce

For the last 6 weeks I have had access to an awesome kitchen and do you know how many times I’ve actually “properly cooked” in it? Go on guess! The answer, to my eternal shame, is none! I had such great visions of all the things I was going to make, oh the cakes I would bake, the fine dining ideas I would play around with, but, alas, I have been drawn away from the kitchen and into the comfy seats of the cafes, bars and eateries of Edinburgh, a city that is booming with vegan food! It’s quite awesome. […]

Vegan in Paphos

It used to be, not that long ago in fact, when we had to make do with a village salad minus the feta cheese, or spend a week or two eating veggie burgers in order to dine out with friends and family in Paphos. But oh how things have changed! Paphos has now become quite the vegan friendly holiday destination, with many restaurants and cafes carrying at least one vegan dish on their menu. Now I’m not saying that they are all brilliant, but I like that they have started to at least offer options. I thought I’d give a […]

Vegan in Rome, it’s much easier than you think!

It seems like all of a sudden, Rome is a Mecca for vegans. Not only do the supermarkets carry some fantastic vegan friendly ranges, but restaurants are catching on too with vegan specific menus that have a great selection, not just a garden salad like some places we will not mention! It doesn’t seem that long ago, only 3 or 4 years really, that we were resigned to having slices of pizza pomodoro for dinner while we were in Rome. Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, the pizza is delicious, but after about 10 slices during a break […]

Less than 24 hours in Rome? You can still pack in a lot of sightseeing!

Last week, we arrived in Rome around 1:45pm having got the train from Ciampino to Termini. We’d already booked our night in an apartment suite just next to the Vatican, so we decided to walk from Termini, straight down Via Cavour, which eventually spits you out between the Colosseum and Vittorio Emanuele monument. Having flown in under a thick covering of cloud and spots of rain, the sun was now belting out through the clearing skies, so we stopped for a while to eat our sandwiches and grab some water all within the view of Trajan’s Forum. Feeling refreshed, we […]

Feeding Frenzy in Surfers Paradise – Food shopping and dining out.

We were told by lots of people that Australia would be expensive and that we would spend most of our budget on food/drink, but we’re a slightly different kind of traveller. We always stay in apartments with a kitchen so we hit the supermarkets like Coles or Woolworths and for the vast majority of the time, we eat in. Of course we love dressing up and going out, but spending a huge chunk of money every night on a restaurant dinner just isn’t my idea of a fun. Our apartment in Surfer’s Paradise was just a 10 minute walk to […]

Oh So Simple Strawberry Tart

I’ve had this little recipe waiting to be added for a few weeks now, but I’ve been working on a few house projects (updating my kitchen) and we also took ourselves off for a couple of days to Protaras for my birthday, which was fabulous. I was meeting up with family for the evening and taking in the delights of the Abba tribute band at the Love Boat pub (yes it really was called the Love Boat) and then suffered the next day from the effects of the local wine, ah well! We spent the day on Nissi Beach in […]
