Vegan cherry ripe

Is there such a thing as Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in the UK?  If there is, I haven’t found one yet.  And who cares anyway, because you can make them yourself! I used to demolish Cherry Ripe bars when I was living in Australia, and along with Bounty bars they were top of the pile…

Raw chocolate orange bliss balls

I have now officially moved into the big time of small time cooking (!) – I bought a proper food processor.  Can you believe I’ve gone this long without one?  Crazy.

Vegan apple tart

When you discover vegan pastry (hi Jus Rol puff pastry!) you have to make everything you’ve ever made with pastry one more time, y’know, just to test whether or not it’s any good. So far, so yum. Apples and pastry go together brilliantly, and this recipe is so easy you have no…

Vegan “bounty” bars

Thought it might be an idea to start off the blog with one of my favourite treats – vegan Bounty bars. I was a huge fan of Bounty bars before going vegan, and this just goes to show that you don’t actually give anything up if you make the switch to a plant based lifestyle. …
