    Vegan Christmas O’clock

    It is that time of year when we can no longer ignore that Christmas is round the corner and Santa’s little elves are beavering away preparing treats for those of us that have been good throughout the year.  If you have been a little less than good and want to make amends over the festive [...]

  • Sage Pesto 02

    Roasted Walnut and Sage Pesto

    I recently collected what I can only assume will be my last glut of sage from the garden. I was slightly overwhelmd by the amount that I harvested and set about thinking what I could do with it (besides drying it for future use) that would make good use of its super tasty qualities. That [...]

  • Chocho and Pomegranate Salad

      I didn’t really want to admit it…in fact I shouldn’t have to as it never really happened but it seems as though the end of the summer is here.  If you like me live in the UK you will be fully aware of the very sorry excuse for a summer we have experienced this [...]

  • Black Currant and White Choc Fool

    Blackcurrant & White Chocolate Fool

    A while ago I went to visit a local wild life conservation/organic vegetable growing group to see what they were up to and if I could join the merriment. The very nice man who I met there gifted me with some freshly picked blackcurrants and I thought it only right that I made a bit [...]

  • Caribbean Carrot Punch

    After a recent discovery of a few bags of forgotten carrots in the fridge, memories of my nan and her Carrot Punch recipe came back to me. I thought I would reinterpret her original version with a healthier lighter option and create something that would suit most dietary requirements. Enjoy! Enjoy this? You might also [...]

  • Stewed Sprouted Black Eye Beans

    Sometimes you fancy something that tastes of home, that fills the kitchen full of aromas from what can seem like another lifetime ago.  You fancy something that reminds you of time spent with family in places near and far and that brings warmth and memories of sunshine.  Alternatively you may just fancy something tasty and [...]

  • Soursop Juice Drink

    I absolutely loved the taste of soursop but it is not one of those things that I eat that often.  It is one of those when I’m on holiday in the West Indies type things.  It only occured to me to buy some when I met a lovely Jamaican lady in our local shop, who [...]

  • Almond Apricot Walnut Tart

    Almond Apricot Walnut Tart with Butterscotch Sauce

    Do you ever fancy something a bit out of the ordinary, a bit decadent, a bit Parisian patisserie?  Well I do and often owing to the ingredients that these delightful looking gems include I refrain.  But never one to do without and feel hard done by I have come up with a very decadent little [...]

  • Protein Rich Hot Chocolate

    What happened to the sunshine? What happened to the short wearing t-shirt loving heat? It seems to me that this might end up being one of the most unpredictable summers in a very long time so this little recipe can give you a bit of a boost on those slightly duller days.  It is a [...]

Khallouk & Taylor

        Sometimes you will find yourself in an area and you just don’t know where to go for a cup of something refreshing.  This happened to me when I was staying with a good friend in Pimlico.  Fortunately she knew where to go and took us to Khallouk & Taylor.  This is [...]

Strawberry Fields Forever

This year I have had to make significant efforts to remind myself that we are actually “enjoying” the months of summer.  As the weather has taken a dip and  the mornings are often grey, I decided that some positive action had to be taken to bring back some summer lovin’.  One of my memories of [...]
