Noah and Vegan Chocolate Orange Cake

I was on a train the day after the London premiere of Noah when I overheard a journalist who attended the premiere describe it as “very biblical.”  No kidding – I could have told him that after seeing the trailer!  After having seen the movie, I can confirm that there is indeed echoes of “swords […]

Marshmallows Made Marvellous and Cocoa and Cinnamon Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows are pretty much pure indulgence.  Fluffy, sugary and delicious.  While storebought marshmallows are having more and more seasonal flavour variety these days, homemade marshmallows can have any kind of flavour.

Carrot Cake Brownies

I am on a bit of a detox this week.  Laugh all you want (as trust me, I’m not a traditional diet person), but I’m just really trying to end this semi-permanent bloat that I’ve been feeling lately.  So this week, we’ve been cutting out dairy, gluten, caffeine, meat and really anything which could be […]
