Vegan Cream Cheese Icing

Here’s the recipe for the icing we used on our cinnamon buns (or frosting, or whatever else you call it).

If you’re going to make the icing for the cinnamon buns, I’d suggested halving the batch. We made a full batch the first time around, and we ended up with way too much left over. I’d also suggested not substituting the powdered sugar with anything, we didn’t have enough the first time round so used caster sugar instead – it wasn’t nice.  Continue reading →

Gluten Free Vegan Cinnamon Buns

I feel like a broken record saying this, but while we were in Toronto we checked out a bakery called Bunner’s. All the food they make is gluten free, vegan, and oh-so delicious (I feel that i need another adjective to describe food, one that I would use though, so for now, if food is seriously good, it’s delicious).  Continue reading →

Hey Good Lookin’, What’Cha Got Cookin’?

I’m not gonna lie, up until tonight I hadn’t cooked anything in a while. I’m just so knackered when I get home from work, that instead of doing anything productive, I end up wasting the hours away on the internet instead (I live a privileged life, I know).

Lately, I’ve been thinking about (read: obsessed with) this chicken dish. We hadn’t had it in a while, and it’s so tasty, yet so simple to make that I just needed it.  Continue reading →

Spiced Tomato Chutney


Last week my copy of Sorted Food’s* latest book Beginners Get Sorted arrived in the post (yay for book vouchers, right?). I’ve made a few recipes from it already, and my favourite so far is definitely the spiced tomato chutney. Why? Because, chutney (seriously though, who doesn’t love it?).

I’ve decided to share their recipe with you, because this stuff IS delicious. We pretty much demolished it within three days of making it; I would love to make it again sometime soon, but buying the amount of fruit and vege required (at supermarket prices) gets a bit expensive (does anyone know where I can get seconds/battered and beaten looking veges in Wellington? Anyone?!)  Continue reading →
