Roasted asparagus coated in garlic and sesame seeds

Asparagus (asparagii?) are a delicacy. I grew up having them rarely because they were so expensive. Even as an adult I see the price for the smallest amount and walk away. This is actually what I almost always do with avocados too, except with them I remember how cheap they were when I was a child and how inflated the price now it.

Anyway, back to the asparagus and the recipe of my dreams.

A selfie I took over the break - Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! There is an unspoken, nationwide rule about when you can no longer wish people new year felicitations: the cut off seems to be January the third at about 11am. After that it’s just ‘good morning’, and the new year break is nothing more than a glorious dream. But since I haven’t blogged since 2017 I feel it’s completely fine for me to fly in he face of convention!

So HAPPY NEW YEAR!

In 2017, blogging took a back seat and work very much took the front seat (is that even a thing?). I lost motivation and determination to write. It turns out that taking a break was the best thing I could have done. I am buzzing with ideas! So I wanted to write to wish you all to 2018, and let you know that this is going to be a magnificent year.

Thank you for sticking with me – I can’t tell you how much I love you all.

This Christmas I fully embraced the festive spirit! Firstly there was the homemade vegan mince pies and now there are these mincemeat crumble bars. I don’t wait until Christmas to make these crumble bars, but they do taste a little more festive in December! As with the mince pies, this is a very simple and quick recipe. It is suitable for vegans and ridiculously delicious.

OH. MY. GOODNESS. Is there anything tastier than homemade vegan mince pies to feast on during a food lull on Christmas Day? Maybe opening presents but not much else. Yesterday Sister and I made mince pies so we could do just this. The mince and pastry for these pies are both vegan and they are delicious. Even if you are not vegan (I am not), I promise you will love these. They are flavourful, rich, and delicious.

I work with an amazing team and I also work near Gail’s Bakery. Which is why when a colleague suggested we all have breakfast together one morning, I didn’t try to come up with an excuse. Good company and good food is all I want (but especially for breakfast). On one very cold, blustery morning everything was made a little bit sweeter by the smell of freshly bakes goods.
