Raw dessert? I’ll bet a lot of people will be thinking “Really? That sounds so boring!”. Most will probably think that a raw dessert consists of an apple. Or a banana. Or maybe, if you’re lucky, a bowl of ripe berries.

Warm and comforting – New house and new soup

It’s amazing how fast time flies. It only feels like we moved into the new house yesterday, yet it’s already been five days. Five days of manic packing, moving, cleaning, more moving, and heaps of unpacking.

It’s nowhere near done. I think it will probably be several weeks before we’re completely unpacked and settled in, but I don’t mind. It’s nice to just sit back, breathe and relax, enjoying the new house, the new scenery, the new atmosphere.

I also can’t quite believe that it’s Autumn already. The leaves are changing, autumnal vegetables are showing up in the shops, Halloween decorations have begun to appear.

And it’s getting colder. So much colder.

That isn’t what happened here.

Sudden inspiration..

Vegan Fortune cookies!

Tonight, I was going to do a review of the B&B I stayed at in Brighton last weekend, Paskins. But then I remembered that I have a little recipe idea to post alongside it, so Paskins will have to wait until tomorrow!

Instead, I’m going to do a quickie post about a new product I recently found! You’ll probably only be able to get it if, like me, you live in the UK. And if you’re close to a Lidls! But take a look at.. Continue reading
