Green Chilli Hummus

Green Chilli Hummus

I never met a hummus I didn’t like, but let’s face it, the garlicky breath it leaves behind is enough to make a small child keel over. So when my husband returned from work last week not stinking and raving about this unusual green garlic-free […]

Vegan Sweetcorn Fritters + Summer Peach Salsa

Vegan Sweetcorn Fritters + Summer Peach Salsa

This is the definition of a perfect lunch – at least it is for me! I’ve been making variations of sweetcorn fritters since I was a teenager, and I can’t think why it’s taken me so long to share this easy recipe here. My daughter […]

Peanut Butter & Jam Flapjacks

Peanut Butter & Jam Flapjacks

I’m baaaaaack! To cut a long story short, my poor website was hacked to within an inch of its life – and I’m happy to report it’s now back to its usual lovely self. I have missed blogging, despite my trust in t’internet taking a […]

Freestyle Falafel

I did a killer yoga workout this morning. Although I am quietly shedding excess weight since embarking on my vegan diet this month, my main goal is to tone up again after the chocolate-induced sag of Christmas! I was so hungry after all the stretching today, […]

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

This quantity makes a good solo adult lunch, or two portions for my five year old daughter. This is her favourite lunch, and has been for a long time. I don’t mind at all – it’s super easy to make and packed with protein from […]

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

This versatile (and Hallowe’en-appropriate) recipe was inspired by a batch of delicious pumpkin and chocolate chip cookies whipped up by my lovely friend James. I was trying to work out an unfussy recipe to use up the flesh scooped out of our obligatory Hallowe’en pumpkin, and […]

Cheese & Marmite Muffins

Cheese & Marmite Muffins

I devised these after a friend asked me to create a cupcake tower for her husband’s 40th birthday party. He is a huge fan of Marmite, so these muffins – topped with a swirl of cream cheese – were a quirky addition to the sweet […]

Lunchbox Blueberry Muffins

Lunchbox Blueberry Muffins

Every so often, my passion for baking all kinds sticky, chewy, creamy and generally moreish treats induces a pang of guilt, and I attempt to balance the situation by thinking up a healthier version of classic bakes. My daughter doesn’t eat sweets or bars of […]
