I've expressed my love for Las Iguanas on here previously, and how it opened me up to a host of Latin-American inspired food, so much that I've re-created my own coconut curry based on their menu. Las Iguanas isn't the only restaurant like this that I've been to: Chiquitos is always good fun, albeit not… Continue reading Friday Basket Restaurant Review: Cabana
I've been expanding my dessert menu to offer more than vegan cheesecakes simply because cheesecakes aren't always practical. Especially now with the hot weather, they defrost very easily and have to be chilled. On Thursday I made some orange and mango melt-in-the-middle muffins, which are still in the testing stage. However out of this trial… Continue reading Friday Basket: Quick and Easy Vanilla Muffins (Vegan)

One thing to bear in mind when baking scones is to avoid over-manipulating the wet mixture before it goes in the oven. Just mix to combine the… Continue reading Vegan Raspberry Scones
Las Iguanas is one of my favourite restaurants. They were the first mainstream eatery I went to that had a separate vegan/vegetarian menu. For those who don't know, Las Iguanas is a South American-inspired restaurant chain; they sell everything from quesadillas to fajitas, and they're roughly the same price as Nando's. The first time I… Continue reading Coconut Curry
It is equally amazing and frustrating to find out that a food item which is a regular purchase, can actually be made at home for a fraction of the price. Normally, flapjacks cost about £1 each, or sometimes you can get a box of flapjack bites on offer at various supermarkets for £1 or so.… Continue reading Friday Basket: Vegan Apple Flapjack Recipe
