Tim tam time!


Today’s post is nothing serious – just a quick zoom in on some treats I made this weekend. Pal Charlene was a lamb and put me into contact with someone who was eager to adopt a kitten, and within less than a week my dearest Gina (Noir) was safe and sound with her new family. To say thanks I rustled up a few vegan Tim Tam type cookies, since she once brought them over to work for us to try out (the proper way with two edges bitten off!) and they were really fun and delightful.  Continue reading



Cherry tomato pie with nutty parsnip peppadew crust

platedpiebbiteWhat to do with an excess of cherry tomatoes? But pie, of course! Delicious and flavourful reclaimed cracker crust with the sweet tang of tomatoes atop a creamy beany filling with the suprise of baby corn and zucchini nestled inside. Oh man, comfort food is just divine, especially on a sunny but chilly winter’s day.

Cheesy mustard parsnip spread, sweet potato patty + cranberry pesto pita (and the NuNaturals giveaway winners!)


So yesterday I complained of a sugar overdose (I’ll be eating my words pretty soon), so I decided to show off my weekend lunch that just brimmed with colour and happiness. I absolutely adore savoury foods and bringing together easy ingredients in a fun way, and this was such a pleasure to look at and eat that it pretty much made the weekend. Man-thing was still rather sick so I ended up doing a lot of chores and making batches of soup and quiches for the week ahead, so whilst the oven was on I jazzed together this plate, and it was simply bliss!

Before I get carried away, however, I need to announce the 4 lucky and randomly selected winners of the NuNaturals giveaway! :D :D

Raw lemon curd ice-cream cake with taco crunch

So yesterday I shared my choco-dipped ice-cream tacos, and today I’m showing off a different way of using the same ingredients. Sometimes one buys excess when you’re not sure about quantities, but I’m very glad to have splurged hard on soaking too many dates and blending too many bananas. Win win all round! (Marm + T – the simplicity of it all is why I said you’d facepalm yourself! :D)

Speaking of win, my NuNaturals competition is now closed and I’ll be announcing the winners tomorrow! I’m letting the rafflecopter decide who the lucky 4 are, so it’s even a surprise for me ;)

Chocolate-dipped ice-cream tacos – two versions!

ice cream taco treatWhilst making tofu sprout tacos the other day I was reminiscing about the wonderful, store-bought ice-cream tacos I used to munch as a kid. My experiences with tacos have therefore usually been sweet in nature, which is why I’ve been determined to stock up on taco shells again and try out a vegan and healthy version of this glorious food memory. Obviously the originals were ridiculously rich and creamy and just brimming with all sorts of indulgent elements, but there’s no reason one can’t still enjoy ice-cream tacos without whipping out the stretchy pants.

My NuNaturals giveaway ends 21 July, so get cracking and enter – 4 lucky winners get a whole host of delightful treats delivered straight to their doorstep. The competition is open worldwide, because that’s just how amazing NuNaturals is :D
