I have a sneaky confession: I really like this kind of treat. The fact that they require NO BAKING (just a little melting) and they aren’t that hard to clean up after doesn’t hurt either, let’s face it. But in all seriousness, these little (or not that little – it’s up to you when you slice them) marshmallow treats are like little bites of childhood for me.
Do you ever have those times where you just really don’t feel like baking? Or cooking? Or really doing much of anything in the kitchen? That’s been me for the past few weeks and so last week I completely gave into the feeling. No post, no social media, no emails… I just took myself on a little break. Well, not really a break because I still had work and the rest of life going on, but nothing food-related progressed until yesterday. Like a little niggle in the back of my brain, the desire to make something came back and I was out to the shops to pick up some ingredients as soon as the opened. The first thing I did after stepping foot in the kitchen was to whip up a batch of my healthy blueberry muffins, which I first made a few months ago and held off posting until I could make them again.
Hands up if you like a savoury breakfasts? Well – this one is for you. Although, if you’re like me and prefer something sweet for breakfast then don’t panic either – just do what I do, and eat this curried kale and tofu scramble at lunch instead.
Make ahead breakfasts: the saviour of busy people across the planet. On days when I’ve forgotten that I really need to wash my hair, make some lunch and buy a train ticket I am incredibly grateful for the days when at least I know I just need to grab a jar of cherry bakewell overnight oats out the fridge as I dash to the train station ticket office with my hair still wet.
Time flies, and apparently so does the first part of September! I totally forgot to finish this before going on holiday. I considered leaving this one out altogether, but I’d actually already prepped most of it in terms of recaps and such (below). So here it is, much delayed: what happened in August on the blog?
Meal prepping food should be easy and the end result, irresistibly delicious. My lemon chia pudding ticks both those boxes. Topped with bright, homemade vegan lemon curd and tart berries, this divine make-ahead breakfast ticks all my boxes for a grab-and-go breakfast.
What does your average person take to the gym every day? Shoes? Kit? What about when that same person has to go to work first? Suddenly space becomes a premium! Find out what I consider to be the “essentials” in my new video.
We all have a favourite hot drink, right? One that we can turn to for a reliable source of comfort on those days where the wind whips through your jacket, rain lashes your hair to your forehead and your hands are like little blocks of numbness attached to your arms. Enough of English weather (in August, I would like to point out)… this is my homemade vegan mocha latte.
Despite my long-standing, well-known love of porridge for breakfast, I have a confession. I really like another kind of breakfast food. Pancakes. Pancake Sunday is a beloved, solo tradition. Solo because… well because my OH likes to sleep in, and my rumbly stomach gets me up before he is ready to roll out of bed.
