Best ever guacamole!!!!!!!

The blond likes guacamole, he’s Californian after all so it’s hardly surprising. He told me that I make Mexican food far too well for someone that comes from London…I’ll take that as a complement. Now this guacamole is super simple – 4 mushed avocado, a pinch of salt, juice from half a lime, 1-2 small […]

Magical Tomato Salad..

Last night I got really hungry and having read my friend’s blog, really craved a refreshing Italian style salad. I looked in fridge and found two punnets of cherry tomatoes, a small clove of garlic, fresh basil and over ripe avocado. I washed and quartered the cherry tomatoes, chopped a small clove of garlic and […]

Pre exam dinner

A few weeks ago my two best girlfriends came over for a pre exam supper, it was such a nice evening with lots of delicious food and girly talk. I made artichoke, leek, mushroom and pesto crostini, falafel, fatuous salad and roasted sweet potatoes. We had sparkling water and finished off with a raw coconut […]

Ten days and no posts…here goes.

No posts for what seems like an eternity, coincided with my not eating anything particularly vegan. I’m not as healthy feeling but I had fun. I have a bit of a moral dilemma whenever I don’t eat vegan. I’m not obsessive enough to worry about the effect that a slice of pepperoni pizza will have […]

Bruschetta which is then recycled into Panzanella

I have a confession to make, I spend far too much money on food. It’s a problem I think. Partly fuelled by the desire to have the most stocked cupboards in all of St Andrews and partly because it comforts me. I enjoy knowing that I can feasibly whip up any meal I choose. This […]
