Finally spring has come- Time to get baking!

Happy weekend everyone! So this year has been pretty hit and miss weather wise right? This has meant a delayed reaction to the allotment. With this wash out weather and freak snow we haven't been able to get planting! However spring has finally come, and so our returning crop is now starting to flourish. Blossom is on the trees, buds are growing and the first crop of the year is ready to pick! ...

Food Thoughts Collaboration

So this weekend the Foodies Festivals kicked off in Brighton, and we are lucky enough to have a new sponsor this year. Food thoughts!

As the British weather so far has been rather forgettable, the produce at home has been laboured, so I am lucky to have brands like this to use instead. I am starting with a simple recipe so anyone at home can try it. It is 100% GF and Vegan so can be enjoyed by everyone! No one should miss out on cake ;-) Chai Chocolate cake with Almond Butter filling. I did want to do a pistachio fill
