Sauces

Cheezy Sauces

Everyone and their dog have a faux cheese sauce these days. I am no different. I have tried one other and found it thin and bland. I modified it but still didn’t have the flavour I like. I have watched a few YouTube videos with various different takes on cheeze sauce and found some inspiration.… Continue reading Cheezy Sauces

Bread

Oil-Free Naan (vg)

As breads go naan is a favourite. I love dipping it in curry or if big enough filling it with curry and salad to eat as a wrap. The action of kneading the dough and the joy of watching it rise just feels good and if you are having a bad day can give you… Continue reading Oil-Free Naan (vg)

Dinners

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which means… Continue reading Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Snacks

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Cookies, Biscuits, or whatever other word you want to use. Sometimes you just need a cookie but getting them with no dairy, egg or oil would be a nightmare. Cookies are easy to make which is luck because I lost my oatmeal cookie recipe and had to wing it. No worries, I have now done… Continue reading Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Sides

Cornbread

I didn't grow up eating cornbread. While living in Texas when my kids were small my youngest, Katie, fell in love with cornbread prompting me to have a go a couple of times.  Still wasn't a big fan and stopped trying to Katie's chagrin.  I only decided to have another go because I was making… Continue reading Cornbread

Pasta Sauce

Who doesn’t love spaghetti covered in tomato-y goodness? I know I do. In fact this was the meal my daughter specifically asked me to make this week so it must be good. I have been known to buy sauces but they are never quite right and I always need to buy several jars to feed… Continue reading Pasta Sauce

Dinners

Hines Baked Beans

Yes, I did that play on words. I previously had this recipe on here but have updated it to a whole foods friendly option, tested it out again, and gotten the pictures I wanted to share so here we go again! I originally modified another recipe 9 years ago but as life evolves so has… Continue reading Hines Baked Beans

Dinners, Sourdough

Sourdough Casserole (vegan)

I really enjoyed the Chicken Sourdough Casserole that I wrote about while still eating meat. The sourdough topping was very much not WFPB however so I had a go at fixing this. It was a success. Sourdough Casserole 800g sourdough starter 1 300g packet of silken tofu  2 Tablespoons Nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons baking powder… Continue reading Sourdough Casserole (vegan)

What I Eat in a Day

I am working on a few recipes but I will admit that I am a bit stuck at the moment. I have been watching these what I eat in a day videos so I thought I could do a blog version of it. You will notice I tend to be rather heavy in the fruit.… Continue reading What I Eat in a Day

Desserts

Applesauce

Do you have any idea how easy it is to make applesauce? It is so simple that the first time I made it was in Kindergarten when I was 5 years old. Of course we made it as a class project and didn’t worry about nutrition back then. I distinctly remember sugar being a big… Continue reading Applesauce
