Mulled Wine Spiced Buns

I have been working at perfecting my Christmas Bun recipe and with these beauties I think I finally have it. Baking them will make your whole house smell like Christmas, and then you get the joy of eating them too. If you’re not feeling festive yet then I urge you to get in the kitchen, put […]

Peppermint Bark

I was first introduced to Peppermint Bark while visiting family in The States. For those unfamiliar with the American confection – it’s usually a layer of dark chocolate covered with a layer white chocolate, then topped with crushed candy canes. Sophisticated? Perhaps not. Tasty? Very. I thought I would make my own version as it’s […]

Caramel and Peanut Chocolate Cups

This little creation is what I imagine the love child of a snickers and a peanut butter cup to taste like. Mini-muffin sized dark chocolate cups filled with salty peanuts and a gooey caramel – what’s not to love? Any they’re so dinky small that they can’t be bad for you, even if you do eat […]

Original Source Shower Gel

One of the main misconceptions that I hear about going vegan is that it’s going to be expensive. I can see why this might be thought as there is certainly a market for fancy vegan health foods and mock meat/dairy products. But fruit, veg and pulses don’t have to cost much at all so it’s easy to […]

Banana and Raspberry Nice-Cream

Well who wouldn’t want to eat ice-cream for breakfast? The difference is that this version gives you two portions of fruit rather than a sugar and dairy hangover. It’s an ice-cream to feel good about. Although given the option I would happily munch on marmite toast for breakfast, I like to try and get at […]

Thick Chocolate Shake

A nice, cold thick chocolate shake always seems like a good option when I’m short on time and want something healthy. For those mornings when I’ve spent so long deciding what to wear that I’ve run out of time for breakfast but don’t want to leave the house on an empty stomach it’s a lifesaver. […]

Aqua-what? AquaFABA!

Aquafaba is the name that’s been given to the water drained from a tin of chickpeas. Yes, that stuff that you usually pour down the drain is now an ingredient in it’s own right, complete with a slightly silly name all of its own. It is pretty amazing stuff though. You can use it in […]

Simple Vegan Meringues

Ever so simple, ever so sweet. This recipe is super easy and produces lovely meringues without even the mention of an egg. Instead of egg whites the recipe uses aquafaba, which is the water drained from a tin of chickpeas. I know, it sounds insane, and not a little bit weird. Who wants a meringue with an after […]

Beefayre Watermint and Rosemary Candle

There’s not much to say about this candle apart from that it smells like absolute heaven. I wish I could climb inside the little glass container and live there as it just smells so darn good. Seeing as that’s not possible I will make do with burning it in my living room, taking  deep, appreciative […]
