RECIPE: Tofu yogurt brownies

I’ve been thinking about brownie recipes recently – brownies aren’t something we ate a lot when I lived at home, but I used to make salted caramel brownies to take to parties. I haven’t made brownies gluten-free vegan before because the ingredients are relatively easy to make free from, but it seems lazy somehow just…

Guest post: Brammibals Doughnuts, Berlin

One of my closest friends (of Morrisons chocolate chip fame) moved to Berlin at the start of the year and as she’s vegan, I asked her to look out for something that was worth a review for me. Apparently Berlin is full of vegan and gluten-free bakeries and restaurants, so I’m definitely missing out –…

RECIPE: Anniversary & lemon doughnuts

We watched a film, About Time a few months back (it’s not new, we’re just a bit slow on the uptake) and in the film the main character goes to a pitch black restaurant and ends up meeting a girl (you can probably imagine the rest). The restaurant in the film was Dans Le Noir…

Cobbler is a bit of a cross between scone and sponge and I consider it just…

Greenwich and wedding cake

I always look forward to London in summer – it seems to get quieter, more relaxed and just more pleasant (that is when I forget about the sweaty commute, the sudden changes in weather that results in going from boiling to freezing and the filthy feet if I ever try and wear flip flops). It’s…

Cornwall

We just got back from our trip to Cornwall, which was really lovely. We go down to Cornwall fairly frequently as my partner is from there and nearly his entire family still live there so we can always stay with someone. This trip we did some cat and house sitting while my partner’s Dad was…
