Whipped feta dip

I had one of the tastiest brunches last weekend, made all the more delicious by an incredible eye-opening dip. I know, who thought a dip could be classed as so? Trust me on this. This plate was full of all things I love, looked incredible and tasted utterly divine. The ingredients were simple; feta cheese, peaches and dukkah. I’m new to this last ingredient, and … Continue reading Whipped feta dip

Vegan banana loaf

One of my favourite cakes growing up was banana cake. My mum’s banana cake, to be precise. It seemed to hold magical powers to soothe stresses, and was always the request of friends after a tough day at nursery aged 4, to those teenage years when life was just “so unfair”. It worked, and the smell of it cooking kept us on tenterhooks with mouth-watering … Continue reading Vegan banana loaf

Vegan chocolate mousse

I had some friends over for supper last week. A chocoholic, a vegan and a coeliac. It sounds like a foodie version of one of those Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman jokes. My usual dessert of choice after a healthy main, would be an indulgent lemon posset with an almond biscuit for dunking. However, the dairy loaded pud, complete with a biscuit was certainly not going … Continue reading Vegan chocolate mousse

Nutty almond butter fudge

I recently spent a lovely weekend in Whitley Bay, Newcastle, visiting a friend. On a particularly blustery Saturday we decided to walk the length of the beach and on to Tynemouth, where my phone’s pedometer reliably informed me we’d traced an impressive 15,045 steps. We deserved a treat, surely? I was fixated on finding some fudge; the sea air has that effect on me. Sadly … Continue reading Nutty almond butter fudge

Sweet treat Saturday

After a very successful day last Sunday, I’ll be back with Greetings, Comrade this Saturday 13th February at The Truman Brewery, London, with a range of delicious treats. I’m busy in the kitchen preparing a range of delicious goodies that I’ve been blogging about, including my vegan chocolate slices, Bliss Balls and coconut pops. Pop by the Backyard Market on Saturday, and pick up a sweet treat for … Continue reading Sweet treat Saturday

National (any excuse) day

What a busy week. Not only has National Breakfast Week been celebrated, we also had Chocolate Cake Day. Social media (or at least the threads I follow) has been awash with a multitude of heavily filtered pictures of porridge bowls soaked overnight in concoctions of almond milk and liberally sprinkled with goji berries. There have also been plenty of luscious, rich chocolate cakes oozing naughtiness, … Continue reading National (any excuse) day

Coconut blueberry muffins

I stumbled over this recipe for coconut blueberry muffins and having picked up a bag from a health store recently, I thought I’d give them a go. There’s a lot to be said for the delicately flavoured flour that can easily be the substitute replacement for others. Made from coconut solids ground into a very fine powder, it has a very subtle scent and flavour. … Continue reading Coconut blueberry muffins
