Chocolate brittle ice-cream

Whoop whoop! I am super excited about today’s post because I get to talk about one of my favourite things: chocolate ice-cream! Some of you may have seen my review of One Green Planet’s Food Monster app here but I’ve shifted it over to this post so that each one gets its own bit of shiny 😀Chocolate brittle ice-cream {vegan + gluten-free} via Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading

Frosty passionfruit pear cheezecake

Friday!! Whoo hoo! Well, I don’t want to say not really, since I have so much work to do and little time in which to get it down, but it’s still the principle of the matter: celebrate where and when you can. It’s been a while since I posted something food-related, so I figured I’d dig something out of the draft archives that I’ve wanted to share for a while. These munchies are long gone by now, but they were tasty and easy, so even laziness is no excuse for me to make them again, and for you to try them out 😀Passionfruit pear cheezecakes via Marfigs' Munchies {vegan + gluten-free}

A trip to Morocco!

Ok, I’m going to start this all of by reminding everyone that I used to be a diplomat’s brat and spent about 20 years travelling up and down the world, so contrary, I guess, to what most people will imagine, I would happily burn my passport and never leave the country. Nevertheless the thought of disappointing my little siblings was too great a feat to overcome, so Man-thing and I packed up our goodies and presents, and said goodbye to the cats as we marched off to the airport for a holiday. This is a little overview of what we got up to! Moroccotrip

Hot cross bundt cake {vegan + gluten-free}

Ahoy from Morocco! The radio silence on the blog and elsewhere has been the result of intense tourist vibes, but I had to stop and say hi with some delicious cake that we munched last week before leaving for Rabat.Hot cross bundt cake {vegan and gluten-free} via Marfigs' Munchies

Tofu PB cream pie {vegan}

Oh my soul, how is it already Wednesday?? Usually I would be clawing at the walls in anguish, waiting for the weekend, but this weekend we’re heading to Morocco for 12 or so days, and I haven’t been on an overseas plane in eight or so years, so yikes! This week is therefore going to be packed with packing, so I decided to share this whilst I still can: a super delicious, not too sweet but utterly decadent tofu PB cream pie!Tofu PB cream pie {vegan} via Marfigs' MunchiesAnd before I forget, if any of you would like to use Facebook as your main means of being notified of new posts on the blog, take a second to eyeball the following! 🙂 Too many “followers” on Facebook just aren’t getting their fair share of shiny, and I’d really love for every post to reach each and every one of you who are interested.facebookmarfigs Continue reading

Passion fruit curd {vegan + gluten-free}

Shepherd’s pie quesadilla {vegan + gluten-free}

Phew! When is it holiday?? These days every moment, even those in which I am supposedly bored, are basically booked or planned for. I’m not exhausted per se, just rather grumpy. Anyway, all that being said I did some meal prep on Sunday which helped with stress relief and I felt much better, not to mention the house was nicely stocked again for a week’s worth of munching. This is more of an idea that a straight-up recipe, because the ingredients are plain and simple but the result tasty and filling!Vegan & GF Shepherd's Pie Quesadillas via Marfigs' MunchiesAnd once again remember to download the free Chocolate Cleanse Riot ebook! (I promise it’s a celebration of chocolate and not at all a traditional “cleanse” :p)The Chocolate Cleanse Riot - Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading

Carrot oat balls

Whoo hoo! Ever since I finished exams I have been living life to the full…or at least getting full on these carrot oat balls. Same thing, nay? Anyhow, since I am unchained for the moment I have a breath to catch in time and space and start getting all my ducks in a row for the next few adventures: my teaching practicals starting at the beginning of next month, a possible cool second job that will make me feel rich, a trip to Morocco to plan (ARGH!), and other treats like homing kittens and attending courses on how to be an awesomesauce teacher. Well, if you thought that was a mouthful you should see the inside of my head: it’s just a non-stop blab fest, which is why I’m going to switch over to food now to calm us all down again 😀

The chocolate cleanse riot: free ebook!

It’s finally here!! I can’t remember if I’ve been sneaky or not about this ebook (which is possibly another layer of ninja if I can hide even that from myself) but I’ve finished and it’s all yours for free and it’s 100% dedicated to my food mistress: chocolate. No matter how busy I get or how lazy, there’s always time in the day for a nibble on something chocolate-y. I may have something of an addiction, but I’ve decided to make a total chocolate cleanse for myself….with chocolate. And since it’s free, you can “cleanse” with me! 😀Chocolate Cleanse Riot Ebook via Marfigs Munchies Continue reading
