I first made this lemon curd some time ago now to fill my vegan lemon curd layer cake, but I felt like it deserved it’s own recipe post. Recently Damian has been trying to cut down on dairy as it isn’t very good for his stomach (a problem that a lot of people have I think), so I have been trying to join him. Seeing as I am already vegetarian (occasionally pescatarian), this has meant that I have been making a lot more vegan recipes so expect to see more of them on here! (more…)

Sun-dried Tomato Chickpea Burgers & Beer Battered Onion Rings

Sun-dried tomato chickpea burgers and beer battered onion rings - delicious vegetarian/vegan burgers served with the most amazing onion rings!

The other day I shared my recipe for tangzhong burger buns and promised I would be sharing a burger recipe to go with them; well here it is – sun-dried tomato chickpea burgers. These are totally vegetarian/vegan burgers that are easy to make, delicious and very satisfying. I served the burgers alongside some amazing home-made beer battered onion rings which were utterly addictive and so much better than shop bought ones. (more…)

Vegan Roasted Banana Ice Cream With Rum Coconut Caramel Swirl & June 2016 Degustabox Review

Vegan roasted banana ice cream with rum coconut caramel swirlI absolutely could never, and would never, go vegan. This is for two main reasons, those being cheese, and ice cream; which are probably my favourite food groups (don’t try telling me that vegan “cheese” is any kind of substitute for the real stuff). That being said, I do occasionally make a vegan recipe, more out of necessity than on purpose – because I’ve run out of eggs for example. In the case of this vegan roasted banana ice cream, I had some bananas that needed to be used up and fancied making ice cream with them but didn’t have any cream in the house; I did however have a tin of coconut milk; so there you go, accidental vegan ice cream.

Easy, No-Churn M&M’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream With Chocolate Fudge Swirl

Easy, no-churn M&M's cookie dough ice cream with chocolate fudge swirl

It is my 30th birthday tomorrow and I’m not particularly happy about it. I just don’t feel grown-up enough to be 30 years old; I still feel like I’m just bumbling through life without a clue what I’m actually doing (but then do you ever actually grow out of that feeling?). I know that “30 is just a number” and “you’re only as old as you feel” blah blah blah etc. etc, but I can’t quite shake the feeling of dread about saying goodbye to my twenties. To commiserate and cheer me up a bit I made a batch of thoroughly un-grown-up ice cream – easy, no-churn M&M’s cookie dough ice cream with chocolate fudge swirl. (more…)

Pistachio Stracciatella Ice Cream & May 2016 Degustabox Review

Pistachio stracciatella ice cream - creamy pistachio ice cream with flecks of dark chocolate (egg free)

We have had some truly hot, summery weather recently, perfect for ice cream. Not that I think there is ever a bad time for ice cream, but you can’t deny that it is much more satisfying when eaten in the sunshine; preferably on a beach. Though living in Birmingham there is a definite shortage of beaches nearby… In the garden then. (more…)
