Sweetened condensed milk is one of those naff ingredients that is actually pretty handy to have in the cupboard as the key ingredient for all kinds of tooth-rotting deliciousness such as caramel, no-churn ice cream, banoffee pie and fudge. Recipes like salted caramel millionaires – definitely one of […]

Happy New Year! I know we are well into January (ahem, approaching February), and I’m not entirely sure when the cut-off date is, but Happy New Year all the same! Isn’t it cold? London has been thickly coated in frost for what seems like forever, and […]

Savoury ‘Parmesan’ Sprinkles // Vegan Basics

Savoury ‘Parmesan’ Sprinkles // Vegan Basics

I have to start this by saying this stuff tastes AMAZING. It tastes a bit like the salty, tangy powdery remnants at the bottom of a bag of sour cream and chive crisps – you know what I’m talking about! If that sounds off-the-chart repulsive, then […]

Oat & Raisin Cookies

Oat & Raisin Cookies

The classic oat and raisin cookie! It’s another vegan treat for you that tastes identical to the original – sweet and crumbly, with just the right amount of chewiness and wholesome oatie texture. Also moreish and dunkable and oh so good with a cup of […]

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 […]
