Oh So Oatie Bars.

These babies are a doddle to make, and are a great way to use up any odd bits of dried fruit and nuts you have lying around. I used Gluten free oats as I seem to have a surfit of them in my cupboard… Pour a bag of oats into a large mixing bowl and slowly add…

Goodness me it’s Gluten free.

Call me weird (you won’t be the first) but I have never been a pizza fan. I know shock horror what’s wrong with me right? I just never liked the concept, deep base, thin crust, stuffed crust whatever… All too messy and doughy and stodgy for this fussy person, until I discovered this amazing recipe…

Namaste New Year.

  A New Year looms and I can’t believe a whole year has passed since I have posted anything on my blog… I actually feel quite embarrassed about that, where has the time gone? What the heck have I been doing? Well, Yoga mostly, less time in the kitchen, more time on the mat! And time,…

Loafing about.

For me Sunday has become a day that has developed a reassuring and comfortable routine to it. I no longer get that dreaded “back to school tomorrow ” feeling that can still haunt us in our adult life. We get up a little later, I make Vegan scramble for breakfast with lovely strong black coffee,…

How do you Hygge?

Well as I mentioned in an earlier post, turns out I’ve been embracing Hygge for years without  actually knowing it was a thing! In a coincidental set of circumstances, I had literally just finished reading an article about Hygge and what it means, when a friends post on Instagram all about Hygge pinged up. My…

Cloudy Skies…

Well, It’s been a while since I posted anything on my little blog. I’m not sure why ? I have still been cooking like crazy, generally jazzing out in my own bonkers way. Maybe its the weather? Maybe I just haven’t felt very “bloggy” ? (Is that even a thing? Can I ask any more…

Min’s Marzipan Dimples…

I have always loved, loved, loved Marzipan and so I decided to give making my own a go….  It couldn’t  be easier! I literally just took a small bag of ground almonds (250gm) and mixed it into a malleable thick paste by adding some almond oil, (about 3-4 tablespoons.) I wanted to add a delicate…

Stargazey soup 

I just made this today because I was playing around with my petit four cutters and some stray carrots (I know too much time on my hands right?) I love making soups, especially in the winter, you can use up all the odd bits of pasta and rice and veggies you have knocking around and…

Pesto for the people.

This pesto recipe is a doddle, experiment with different nuts, because they all lend such a different depth of flavour. Cashew Pesto. With the addition of Nutrional Yeast this has a mild creamy almost cheesey taste to it. 2 Bunches of basil 2 cloves of garlic Salt and pepper to taste Olive oil (add as you…

Persian pudding pots.

This was a total experiment that was inspired by some dried rose petals we had left in the kitchen from another meal and a visit to our local Indian corner store. I wanted to make a sort of Persian/ Indian inspired milk pudding with so I just went free style and was so pleased with…
