Roasted Pumpkin Topped Rice Bake

  Grumpy Cat via Ffffound This is a simple, light tasting bake that is great for a weeknight winter dinner huddled around the heater. We’ve been doing a lot of that lately, up in the Wellington hills! As well as being delicious, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds add an extra punch of protein, vitamins and…

Vanilla-Lime Tea Cakes

Quote via Ffffound   I am going through a bit of a lime phase at the moment. Lime compliments so many flavours and it blends beautifully with vanilla in this recipe to make fragrant, light, tasty lil cakes. Awesomely, they take no time at all to throw together – the longest part will be waiting…

Chocolate-Pecan Brownie Loaf

Kielo S/S13 via VFiles   This recipe is a kind of Frankenstein creation, part loaf, part brownie. I can’t decide whether it is a brownie-style loaf or a loaf-style brownie. Either way, it tastes damn good! Chocolately, chewy, moist and delicious, it is perfect with a cup of Earl Grey, or underneath a big dollop…

Vegan Lemon-Lime Mini Cupcakes

Smashed Garlicky Cannellini Beans

Image via Ffffound |   My friend Shel gave me this easy, fast, rad as hell recipe when she was in town late last year and I will ever be grateful! It was the second coolest thing about her visit, next to meeting her badass & supercute baby boy for the first time ♥ These…

Caramel Cashew Cupcakes

Art via Ffffound |   There is something about the combination of cashews and caramel that is just so, so right. This recipe has a bunch of steps (it’s really a three-recipes-in-one deal, after all) but everything is quick and easy to whip up. It won’t take nearly as long as you might think, and…

Sinful Chocolate Pudding (The Subtle Triumph Of Silken Tofu)

Via Derhaarfluesterer Ink @ Tumblr   This recipe is adapted from How It All Vegan by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard. It is quite the deliciously simple dairy free dessert revelation. This is seriously good stuff. Tonight for dessert we ate a big bowl o’ pudding with an almond-topped Easy Vegan Chocolate Cupcake on the…

Sweet Banana Date Loaf

Via Ffffound   This is a tweaked version of the Banana Bread recipe in How It All Vegan by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard. I just added LSA and switched up the flour arrangement a little. LSA is awesome for a bunch of reasons: it is packed full of fibre, is a protein boost and…
