Scrummy Spicy Pasta, the Vegan Recipe

Pasta is my life. It was before I went vegan. It was before I went vegetarian. It still is now. Jazzing up a pasta dish is not hard and it definitely isn’t for a bog-standard vegan with basically zero culinary skills…

Vegusto No-Moo Vegan Cheese Review

Everything in my body screamed “WHAT ARE YOU DOING” but alas, the blocks of Vegusto No-Moo Vegan Cheese went into my basket & through the checkout…

Vegan chocolate cupcakes… first attempt.

It’s my Birthday on Monday, and I needed a cake. I couldn’t find one, but I did find this ‘ready mix’ box of chocolate cake in Morrisons on the ‘free-from’ shelves! By the way, I was sorely disappointed in the ‘free-from’ shelves, because basically everything is gluten free. There is nothing free from anything else…

Smooju Shmooju – Smoothi & Juice in one!

So, you guys all know that I RAVE about these new creations that have entered my life oh-so-recently… well, today I figured I’d make a scrummy one with a twist. I added lemon. My raw ingredients looked like this: Heads up though, those carrots are AMAZING. In Morrisons, they’ve responded to the amazing campaign from…

An honest review of Quorn Mince, from first-timers…

I decided that for tea (yes, that’s dinner to everyone south of Derby), to cook a staple meal that we usually eat every week or so. Only this time, it’d be veggie friendly! As a disclaimer, this is the first time I’ve ever cooked Quorn anything, so give me a bit of leeway for that!…

Soya Milk. The verdict.

Both my OH and I decided to switch out normal cow juice milk to soya milk to see what we thought. My farmer OH was sceptical, to put it mildly, but tried it regardless (bless him, A* no?!). Both of us were extremely pleasantly surprised! Not only was the Soya milk beautifully refreshing, it was…

Corner Shop Vegetarian Shopping.. Take 1

I walked into the corner shop today. I visit it a few times a week, so the staff know me. They know my habits, they know my purchase history, they know more about me and my daily life than most people do. So when I scurried around the aisles looking confused, I think they knew…

Breakfast is tricky.

After a ridiculously stressful morning dealing with all manor of problems and chaos, I lost creativity by 9am and totally failed to be imaginative. Great. Ended up with cheerios and milk. Seriously. Still, better than a bacon sarnie?! The one positive we can take from breakfast was the fact I coupled it with a banana…

The Smooju.

The concept of the Smooju has been around for a fair while, but I learnt about it from good friend & client, Evelyn’s Mark.  A Smooju is the best of both worlds. It’s a meal in a cup. It’s basically a superfood along with a super drink. Essentially, you grab yourself a whole load of fibrous…

The start of it all…

I’m a twenty-something country lass from Yorkshire, UK. I grew up around, and involved in, farming. I have, previously, snared my own dinner, hunted my food & gutted game. And do you know what? I absolutely hated it. That was where I started.
