Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, 'Tis the season to be jolly, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la... That's all for now since my singing isn't something to boast about!

Chocolate Hazelnut Oat Cookies (vegan | gluten-free)

Is it wrong if I’m openly admitting that before the cookies were baked they actually tasted much better?! In my opinion, the raw version was a notch above the cooked biscuit.

Baked Lemon Cheesecake Bars (vegan |gluten-free)

I honestly can’t take this sudden abundance of raw imitation cheesecakes with their soft nut bases and their faux-cream fillings pumped with expensive fruit powders (another useless non-entity of an ingredient) just to hype up their appearance. They don’t really taste like real cheesecake and you normally have to spend at least a day’s salary… Continue reading Baked Lemon Cheesecake Bars (vegan |gluten-free)

Emergency biscuit base (vegan | gluten-free)

Every morning without fail, my boyfriend whips himself up a 1000kcal shake- yes, I’m jealous, envious of the fact that if I had that every week, Let alone everyday, I wouldn’t fit through the front door.
