I felt sad last night, so I baked some vegan chocolate chip cookies. Baking always relaxes me and cheers me up.

On hiatus

As you can tell, I haven’t really posted here for a while. My personal life has been quite turbulent this year, and now I have a wonderful 6-week old little boy to care for. However, I am planning to pick this up again when the summer is over, so stay tuned for new vegan kitchen adventures as we head into autumn!

Fat-free Beetroot Tea Loaf. I’ve veganised the recipe from the must-have Veg Everyday by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. It’s delicious! If you veganise the recipe, slightly larger quantities work better. You can also make this with carrot, courgette, or pumpkin or squash if you don’t like beetroot.

Preparations

My brother, sister-in-law, and baby-nephew are coming for a visit tomorrow, so I’m making Baked Chili with Cornbread Topping from La Dolce Vegan and Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie from Vegan Pie in the Sky. It’ll be the first proper sweet pie I ever made from scratch. Fingers crossed it’ll go well. If everything turns out I’ll post some pictures. Thanks to everyone who started following me recently, and/or liked or reblogged my posts. It really means the world to me. xoxo
