Peanut butter/oat/cinnamon/almond cookies from the “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar” cookbook.
The raw mix and these straight out of the oven were amazing, but only a day later they were very dry and almost “healthy cookie tasting” (you know what I mean) which is a shame. You’re meant to use salted peanuts in place of the almonds so that might have made a difference? Eh, all I’d say is make 1/2 the batch and serve them straight away! ^_^

Veggie bao - organic marinated tofu cake and steamed bun served with choi sum, hoisin sauce, crush peanuts, coriander + dikkon radish.
I had this today for lunch in Bristol and it was lovely! The cafe was very small but cute, service was fast and it was only £6 for two of these which is amazing. I’m surprised there wasn’t a queue out the door! Plus you can get takeaway which I’ll definitely be doing when I’m feeling like a lazy student rather than spending a lot of money on a greasy, horrible takeaway. :P
Oh, and the cafe is called BAOWOW. (coolest name ever, I know)

This is how I spent Valentine’s - making a lot of sushi (very poorly) with my best friend/boyfriend. We tried to make it romantic by forming the rolls in to a sort of heart shape! But we did eat them in animal onesies whilst watching Millionaire Matchmaker re-runs, so. Perhaps being romantic just isn’t my thing!
Oh and I also attempted to make vegan fortune cookies, but instead of fortunes I put little compliments inside - they tasted awesome but were a little unsightly, haha! It’s the thought that counts… O_o
Sorry (again, I know) for the lack of anything. I’m clearly just rubbish with time management! I really need to work on that. Maybe tomorrow…

Vegan chocolate peanut butter cupcakes with a peanut butter buttercream frosting and a toasted almond each. (from the recipe book Ms Cupcake : The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town!)

This is the second time I’ve made these and they’re still uh-maze-ing. The cakes are so incredibly light and fluffy that you don’t think they’re quite cooked when you take them out of the oven, but don’t leave them in a minute longer. The muffin top is perfectly crispy and even though I’ve used about a 1/10th of the icing this calls for, they’re absolutely delicious. I’d really recommend getting this book if you can get your hands on it! :D

I’m back! (and vegan!)

Hello there! Sorry for the long disappearance, I’ve no excuse. I was very busy but there’s always time, I’m learning that now!

I’m half way through my course which is scary but exciting at the same time. Also I’ve had 2 out of 4 offers for university, I’ve yet to have an offer from my top choice but hopefully it’s in the near future. ^_^

And yes, I’m vegan again! I’ve always wanted to go back, and this time I’ve convinced my boyfriend to do it with me so there are 2 new vegans in the world. It’s not like I’ll have to make too many alterations in my diet anyway, I just have to be more cautious when eating out, I suppose.

2014 : the year my permanent veganism began! :D
