Over the weekend I found myself at home, hungry, with a bag of kale and not much else. I wanted something delicious to eat. Usually I reach for the spinach – it is a my go-to green food – but as I said, I had kale and the desire to do something with it. After a little rummaging I ended up with mushroom, peanuts, and garlic. I could see the beginning of a warm salad forming and couldn’t wait to start cooking.
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.
Rice crackers have to be the most perfect snack. I think the only thing that beats them is almond croissants and to be fair to rice crackers, almond croissants beat everything. Recently I was bored and had some time on my hands so decided to add some flavour and toppings to my rice crackers. What I ended up with are three different toppings – one sweet and two savoury – which I fell in love with.

Porridge has become my go to breakfast of choice. Sometimes even my go to lunch or dinner of choice. It is foolproof and as I just start exploring food and cooking and all the many ways it can – and does – go wrong, I am thankful for the things that I can’t mess up. What I have learnt is that no two people make porridge the same and that I love this recipe.
