October Favourites

Hello there, The exam period is finally over for me so I now have time to look back on the month of October and share with you everything that I was loving: Coffee shop of the month has to go to Moana Coffee In the city.

Vegan Nachos

I can easily recall the smell of nachos cooking on weekends in our house. My brothers and I were huge fans of my mum’s cheesy nachos. The crunchiness of the cheesy chips and that fresh salsa sauce….. Dairy free nachos can be a tricky taste so when I found a vegan recipe that was actually good I was overjoyed! I used the Minimalist Baker’s recipe and added some amazing sea salt corn chips as my […]

I feel a bit guilty calling this a pizza because really it’s not really a pizza but instead a cauliflower in a pizza disguise. However, it’s still pretty darn tasty despite the illusion.
