Upside down ombre orange cake with vanilla

For me, one of the hardest things about blogging is writing my posts. I’ve never really been comfortable with expressing myself in that way, but I imagined over time it would get easier.

vegan lemon tarts – easy, no bake & ultra tangy!

In my early 20’s I was obsessed with a little French Patisserie near my work. I would find any excuse to pass by & pick up one of their lemon tarts. They were divine, but far from healthy. Fast forward to today & I still love that lemony tang in a dessert, but I want…

Chocolate Mint Slice – vegan, gluten & dairy free

This chocolate mint slice is one of my favourite things to make & eat. I have always loved the combination of chocolate & mint. As a little kid, my parents weren’t into keeping lollies & chocolates in the house, but they always had a box of Red Tulip After Dinner Mints in the fridge. You…

Vegan Raspberry Brownies

My almost 7-year-old son’s eyes lit up when I explained baking as a science, it’s one of his favourite subjects at school. He couldn’t wait to get started, a combination of Sous Chef and Scientist.
