<-----I ate this last night, and it was bloody marvellous. I don't regret a single mouthful- I've been the to the gym four times this week and celebrated a relationship milestone so yeah, guilt free treats all round. But now I'm facing the start of another week and as I sit here in front of … Continue reading The Vegan Diaries- a post script
Yes, the end draws nigh. It's been emotional. That was a lie, but I'll get to that later, yet looking back on a week it's not been so bad.

Plus significantly lower fat than your average scone, so there! … Continue reading Almond & Chocolate Square Scones (yes, they’re vegan)
