Vegan MOFO – Day 3 – Creamy cashew cheesy-dip

Hello fellow MOFO-ers! I had intended on doing a nice long blog post today about the wonders and joys of cashew cheese (cue trumpet fan-fare and confetti). But alas, moving got in the way, and what with packing, cleaning and working (again!) I’m now getting very close to running out of day.. I really do need to start writing these things earlier on!

Amazing onion rings – Healthy and delicious! Cooked & Raw options!

I have pretty mixed feelings about onion rings. Whilst I will agree that they are tasty.. traditional onion rings, in all their battered, fried glory.. just seem pretty.. gross.
Heavily processed, lacking in nutritional value, and high in fat..
If you make them yourself they will obviously be better.. but what if you could make them healthy?

Raw Carrot Cake – a flavour explosion.

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.
Oh, you do not know how wrong you are…

Cauli-cous – A raw adventure!

Well hello lovely people, did you think I’d forgotten about you? Not a chance! Life has been pretty full at the moment, some of it planned, some not, so I’ve been kept very busy for the past few months. But I’ve been absolutely itching to get back to blogging! And now I think I truly have something blog-worthy to share with you all.

Sweet Potato Bites

The other day, I simply had no idea what to cook for dinner. Pasta came to mind, or perhaps rice? Served with some kind of sweet potato dish?

Before I knew it, sweet potatoes, kidney beans and sweetcorn had leapt out at me, declaring that what I would be making for dinner, would be Mexican-themed.

Perfect Purple Pasta

I had very colourful dreams last night. Bright purples, glowing reds, vibrant greens, and stunning yellows….

Oh hello, stunning yellow..
Oh hello, stunning yellow..

And when I awoke, I just knew that something had to be done about that colourful, vibrant dream.. Continue reading

Purple Goddess Dressing

Sometimes, a recipe will take weeks, maybe even months, and occasionally years to perfect. You’ll start off with an idea, or a vague notion of what might work. And you play around with it, tweaking it here and there, until finally you end up with what you dreamed up all those many days ago….

That isn’t what happened here.

Pesto Spaghetti

I know, I know. I said that I would be posting this recipe the very day after I posted my Pesto recipe – But sometimes, life just gets in the way!
Saturday was spent at my fiancĂ©’s mum’s house, with my fiance’s family. No laptops, barely any phone usage, simply spent relaxing in the garden and spending time together.
With a particularly fun game of hide and seek, in which I won one of the games (they had to give up!) by hiding in an abandoned tree-house 😛

Sometimes, being so short and little has it’s perks!

Okay, so this photo wasn't taken at my fiancé's mum's.. I forgot to take photos that day!

Basil & Almond Pesto – And a birthday!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been The Birthday Fairy. (A bit confusing perhaps, seeing as though this is Pixie Produce, but hey, on Sunday’s I’m a Unicorn, and I’ve always been crazy about dragons – I’m a whole fairy-tale rolled into one)

Speaking of Fairy Tales, there really is something magical about fresh basil...

3-in-1 – A cheese, a dip, and a sandwich! (of sorts)

Spring time is one of my favourite times of the year. It starts to warm up (so no more worrying about, is it going to snow today? Are we going to have another supermarket raid as everyone panic-buys 20 loaves of bread?) And it’s also not too hot that, with the exception of curling up inside your freezer, there’s nothing you can do to escape the heat (Something that I’ve only ever experienced since living in Devon. In Wales, such heat is just a myth!)
