Cool Cabana

Yesterday, on what was probably the hottest day of the year, I braved the heat to grab some food at Cabana, a Brasilian restaurant serving some foodie delights and great cocktails. Starting a meal with a cocktail is for me the official nod to the Summer, that is exactly what I did when arriving at Cabana….

Food Heaven…Literally!

Food Heaven sent me the most incredible soya latte, it is so sweet yet still has that punch of coffee in it. I had it with plenty of ice and it was divine. Summer is coming and iced coffee is soon going to be my drink of choice in any coffee shop, however, this soya latte,…

Scrumptious Sowans

The delightful people at Sowan’s sent me some of their fantastic Irish products to use at home. They sent some baking mixtures such as Date and Chia Seed Muffin Mix, Vanilla Cupcake Mix, Chocolate Brownie Mix and Mega Spelt Bread Mix, as well as sending some wonderful amaranth and quinoa. All the mixes were gluten free and…

BWT Brilliance

BWT were kind enough to send me their water jug to try out, in a gorgeous bright green colour, that is ideal for summer. It comes with a double filtering cartridge which filters tap water and mineralises it with magnesium, as much as 40mg of magnesium per litre of water. The activated carbon granules act like…

Hot Indian Curry

If you have read my earlier post about Shemin’s Pastes then you will know that I am a big fan and that is why I will be using their Indian Hot Curry Paste in the recipe I am about to share. This paste adds depth and spice to this dish, it is spicy and works…

Spring into Easter

Easter is a time when eating is something that is pretty much part and parcel of the holiday season. Yes, of course, there will be chocolate but more so than just the sweet affairs, there will come times when you will want to make a feast for the entire family (or just yourself), which is…

5 Minute Pizza

​I haven’t ordered pizza for a long time, but I’m pretty sure if I were ordering 6 pizzas, I would be looking at spending somewhere close to £50, maybe even more. I have devised a way to make a yummy vegan pizza, that costs around £6 to make 6 pizzas, with cheese and all the…

Toad in the hole 

When something this good is completely vegan, it just has to be made for everyone I know!  This is why I think toad in the hole is a great Boxing Day option,  it’s so cheap and easy. Give it a go! My recipe serves 2 large portions, or 4 small portions depending on how hungry…

Mango Sorbet

​Dessert time for my blog posts and what a treat! Winter is a great time to treat yourself, I tend to want to still keep myself from plunging too far into sugary treats, but am aware that unfortunately, in order to have some yummy desserts, sometimes you have to treat yourself, just a little bit….

Perfect Roast Potatoes

​Every roast dinner, which essentially is what an Xmas day dinner is, needs potato. It goes without saying that a roast potato needs to feature on the plate somewhere, however, there is no reason why you can’t explore other forms of potato on your plate, on Xmas day or any other day in the festive…
