It is just as delicious eaten outside in the sunshine as it is when eaten wrapped up in a blanket on a cold day. Which is perfect for this awkward time of year, when the weather could go either way.

Flapjacks have to be the ultimate in simple yet satisfying treats. If you are feeling low on energy then a sweet, chewy, buttery flapjack with a cup of tea is just the thing to perk you back up again. Here I have veganised them and added a tasty mix of dried fruits, nuts and seeds (mostly because I wanted to clear some odds and ends out of the cupboard but the result is delicious!) (more…)

While I do love a plain scone, split and spread thickly with jam and cream; sometimes a flavoured one is what I want. One that has enough taste and sweetness of it’s own that it needs nothing more than a smear of butter to really make it shine. (more…)

I’ve been meaning to experiment with coconut oil pastry for a while now so this also seemed like the perfect occasion to try that out too and I am happy to report that it turned out fabulously!

Raspberry almond overnight oats - get prepared with this super simple recipe for a tasty make-ahead breakfast of creamy almond flavoured oats with raspberry compote.

Last week I took a trip to London courtesy of Arla to have a lovely lunch and learn a bit more about fibre and the newly launched Arla Fibre yogurts. Despite government recommendations that we should each be consuming 30g of fibre a day, the average UK adult only eats around 18g – nowhere near enough! (more…)

I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)
