Almond Caramel Apple Shortcakes

Today’s post is proudly inspired by Mary Berry. If you’ve never heard of her, firstly, do you live under a rock? Secondly, I’d like you to Google the Great British Bake-Off. I’ll give you a moment to catch up with the rest of the world before coming back to this post. Are we all on…

My Trip To Europe!

There was no way in hell that I was going to spend a month away from home and you guys would not hear a single word about it. In fact, 3 weeks from now you’ll most likely be begging me to stop talking about it. This trip changed me in more ways than I could…

Vegan Lemon Coconut Cream Pie

I’ve been dying to try out a vegan dessert that isn’t based on soaked cashews and this is THE ONE. When I was thinking about this one, I came across a couple of obstacles. #1 being how does one make pastry vegan? Figure that one out and all problems would magically disappear.

Roasted Buffalo Chickpea and Cauliflower Stuffed Baked Potatoes

The recipe title is a mouthful, but this meal is every bit as tantalising as you would expect it to be. Last week, I picked up a bunch of cauliflower at the store so I had been meaning to make something along the lines of roasted cauliflower. The problem was: how would I turn that…

Lentil Spinach Quesadillas with Guacamole

Happy Friday y’all! Today I bring you your latest obsession: these quesadillas. Being the only vegetarian in my household, cooking plant based meals that people actually enjoy has proven to be my toughest challenge. I’m perfectly happy eating a couscous salad but that wouldn’t please my rugby playing brother. My health conscious mother isn’t very comfortable…
