raw rosey rocky road

Pistachio + Rose Rocky Road

In the past, optimism was a characteristic that seemed to elude me. I could have safely been labelled the ‘glass half empty’ kind. The good news is however, due to the cleverness of the human brain, a hopeful, optimistic attitude is something you can actually acquire. If optimism is a gene that you inherit, I […]

Cashew Maple Muesli Bars

Do you have certain songs that transport you to a particular time in your life? I do. I can listen to a song and instantly be hauled back to the past. But not just by way of memories, it’s much deeper than that. It’s as if the song pokes me hard in the heart with its index finger. And suddenly […]

Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

Well, here we are, the start of the new school year. I have mixed emotions about this, yet again. Although it is just a day, and my son is only one measly day older than yesterday, the start of a new grade signifies that my little baby is much further away from being a baby. […]

Fruit and Nut Tabouli

My life, over the last six months, has been tipped upside down and thrown on it’s head. Hence my lack of commitment to Eat This My Friend. Without delving too deeply into my personal life, I discovered that in times of total stress I completely lose my appetite. I have not been in the mood to […]

Simple Vegan Banana Bread

This is one of those very handy recipes to have up your sleeve. A vegan banana bread. I have made many over the years, this one is the simplest, and the best. And yet another one of those ones that you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between a vegan or conventional one. Even if […]

Apple Cinnamon Tea Cake

Last week I was told by a friend, one I don’t know all that well, that they were surprised to hear about my wild teen years and ‘troubled’ past. They had always thought I was so conservative.  Conservative! I couldn’t believe it! It’s been on my mind ever since. It is quite intriguing how other […]

Spiced Pumpkin and Pecan Muffins

Second week in a row I am posting a recipe for cakes/muffins. Apologies if it’s a bit boring – it is just what I happen to be cooking.. I was inspired this week by a combination of things. There was the lovely @inkedincolour who posted a gorgeous recipe for pumpkin cakes, they looked incredible and I was […]

lemon poppy seed cakes in tin

Little Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes

Just a quick post this week, whilst I settle into my new ‘full capacity’ life. I made these little cakes to pop into young Clancy’s lunchbox during the week. Our lemon tree is heaving with lemons – it’s unreal. And Clancy, who is not really a cake fan, actually loves lemon cake of all things. […]

Raw Fruit + Nut Chocolate Bark

Of all the recipes I post on this site, the raw vegan treats are, by far, the most popular. Which suggests to me that we are more health conscious now than we have even been. We are informed, and aware. Nutritious ingredients –  the superfoods – have become so popular, that they are now affordable and accessible. These […]
