Dessert Sushi and Gilmore Girls

Many hours of my teenage years were spent watching Gilmore Girls. Some may say this was escapism or procrastination from school work but I argue that I was simply furthering my education. Where else would I learn about the effects of excessive coffee consumption? Not to mention the fact that everyone has a different path in life and it isn’t always an easy one. It’s been 9 years since the last Gilmore Girls series ended […]

Coconut Rum Balls (Vegan)

The classic rum ball – Honestly not something I ever thought I would be writing about. Up until a month ago I had never even tasted one. Sure, I was aware of their existence but had dismissed it as something my grandparents would eat. The rum ball was not for me! However, recently my co-worker brought a batch in for our celebratory ‘Friday bake day’ and oh my gosh they were wonderful! No longer will […]

Creamy Pumpkin Soup (Vegan)

Pumpkin soup

  Gee, it’s certainly getting chilly here in Melbourne and as I bundle up to avoid the chill a need for comfort food grows. Instead of reaching for another slice of pizza (not that there’s anything wrong with that) I decided to whip up a batch of pumpkin soup. I’ve never been a huge fan of soup but this particular soup is so creamy, filling and comforting- it’s hard to dislike! It’s topped off with […]

Taxi Driver Apple Pie (Vegan)

Ahh apple pie, it’s the ideal winter comfort food in my opinion. Clearly Travis from Taxi Driver must think so too. The Scorsese exhibition has just opened at The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) so of course I had to see it! It was absolutely amazing and if you head over to the Many Melbournes blog you can read my review! As I was exiting the exhibition I dropped by the gift shop […]

Vegan Easter Chocolate Crackle

Chocolate crackles were one of my favourite treats as a child. Once in awhile I was treated to a box of Rice Krispies and I would rejoice over the knowledge that I could make a massive amount of chocolate crackles. They were simple and fun to make and most importantly- they were super delicious. However back in the day (and maybe still today) they were made using Copha and with a large amount of sugar. […]

New Year and Vegan Snickers Bar

A very late happy New Year to everyone! This year is going to be an exciting one for me as I am moving to Melbourne to complete my studies and hopefully get an amazing job. I’m experiencing a mixed bag of emotions. I am someone who likes to be organised and in this situation it is impossible to predict how things will turn out. Where will I live and work? Will I make new friends? […]

Vegan Mulberry Pie

                      It’s mulberry season! Which means I headed down to the ancient mulberry tree at university. I spent a good hour climbing about the tree and gathering all the ripe berries. Unfortunately this resulted in a vast amount of purple stains all over my clothing and bag but I suppose one must make sacrifices. Because the mulberries are so fresh and flavorsome I decided to […]

Winter Salad

We certainly are in the midst of winter at the moment. It is my favourite season of the year as it allows you to rug up and enjoy the cosiness of warm food and drinks. Warm and comforting food need not be unhealthy and this salad is a prime example of that. This is not one of those boring salad that leaves you hungry and feeling like you need to reach for the chocolate asap. […]
