Eat-All-Week Caribbean Rice & Peas

Eat-All-Week Caribbean Rice & Peas

I can eat this by the bucketload. Rice and Peas is a traditional dish in countless regions, but most people tend to think of the gorgeous Caribbean islands where it is a staple food and routinely served up as a side dish to pretty much […]

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

It’s nearly Christmas! How’s your December going so far? I know I say every year how much I enjoy the festive season but I really do. Twinkling fairy lights and the smell of cinnamon wafting through the air makes me feels so warm and cosy […]

Blackberry (Summer Berry) Smoothie // Vegan Basics

Blackberry (Summer Berry) Smoothie // Vegan Basics

Who doesn’t enjoy a chilled fruity drink on a hot afternoon? I absolutely love picking blackberries at this time of year – there’s something quite satisfying about foraging for fruit! We are lucky enough to have two great playgrounds nearby, one of which we only discovered […]

Tofu Thai Green Curry

Tofu Thai Green Curry

With summer fast approaching, I suspect this will be the last of the posts utilising the slow cooker before it is tucked away until autumn. But what a scrumptious dish for a season finale! This Thai curry is super easy and packed with veggies and […]

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

I love this recipe – it was the first curry I ever made! I have no doubt it’s not quite ‘authentic’, but who cares when it’s got so much going for it. It’s super healthy, naturally vegan and I’ve been making it for about a […]

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s a universally accepted fact that children are programmed to love ice cream. Now that summer appears to have returned, this might be just the thing to keep the wee ones busy for a few hours. Prior to this, I last attempted to make ice […]

Dreamy Chocolate Cheesecake (Vegan)

Dreamy Chocolate Cheesecake (Vegan)

I’ve been thinking a lot about veganism recently. Although I’m not sure it’s a realistic option for a baking obsessive, and I don’t know if I could ever fully make the transition, I am attempting to cut eggs and dairy from my day-to-day diet as […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake

Today is Baking With Honey’s first birthday! I’ve been bursting to share this gorgeous cake recipe with you for a while now, but as it is most definitely a celebratory kind of cake, I wanted to wait for a suitable occasion. (Despite the fact that […]

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Now that autumn is upon us and the evenings are becoming a little bit more chilly, I thought it was time to post another comforting pie recipe! I’m mad about coconut and if I can find a way of incorporating into my cooking and baking, […]

Soft-Bake Bounty Cookies

Soft-Bake Bounty Cookies

I’ll be frank here; I know full well that Bounty is not, ahem, everyone’s idea of ‘a taste of paradise’. But fear not; you can safely omit the chunks of chocolate-encased coconut and replace with your choice of chocolate chips, chopped nuts (hazelnuts work well) […]

Streusel-Topped Tropical Loaf Cake

Streusel-Topped Tropical Loaf Cake

This really is an ugly duckling of a loaf cake, but it makes up for it in deliciousness! This is one of my very favourite bakes – it is moist and full of flavour. The streusel-like, crumbly topping is popular in the Caribbean and the cake contains […]

Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

This is a really warming, creamy, fragrant curry, and is now probably my favourite, having evolved for a couple of years with tweaks here and there. The chilli gives a lovely heat, nothing intense, just a pleasing kick – which you can increase (or decrease) […]
