Sweet treats

Tue, 5 Oct, 2021 - 15:59

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? And what could be sweeter than a sweet treat that has only four ingredients, involves no baking and takes hardly any time at all to make?!

These are delicious with tea or coffee and as they are also quite filling they are probably one of the few treats out there where you can happily say ‘one (or two!) is enough’.

I split a weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share - a veg box! - with my husband and another friend. I love that it gives us local produce throughout the year, connects us to the landscape and the seasons where we live, and the farmers who provide our food, and is much more environmentally friendly than getting all our fruit & veg from the grocery store. 

In our last November share, we were given a surprise bag of...

Christmas recipes and food ideas

Tue, 15 Dec, 2015 - 12:24

Whether you’re eating with fellow vegans/veggies or sharing the holiday with meat eaters, why not offer some lovely, kind and inclusive food that everyone can eat? I cook vegan every year for ‘mixed’ friends and family, all of whom love the all vegan dinner, desserts and everything!
