    Butternut Soup

    Warm spicy butternut soup for those rainy days…. I make this soup with my homemade bread on days when the sun is gone and the rain monkey has brought the clouds to play with. Each time I make the recipe there is a new flavour as each butternut is different coming from different parts of the world. This year Sinead and I planted our own butternut plants – they are currently in the garden with beautiful butternuts waiting for a few more sunny days and then we can harvest them. We are looking forward to tasting our homegrown butternuts. Ingredients

Filling the house with pumpkin spice smells and apples, autumn fall had surely…

    Baking up a puff of meringues…

    What is not to love… meringues and ice cream, meringues and chocolate sauce, eton mess, meringues and berries…. or just plain meringues or flavoured meringues. We love meringues and as dairy free vegetarians, almost vegans, we make our meringues with the juice of our tin chick peas – aquafaba is the viscous water in which legume seeds such as chick peas have been cooked in. They are pretty easy to make with the family as you can lick the spoon 🙂 Scrumptious vegan Meringues: Peppermint meringues Cacao nibs and peppermint meringues Vanilla meringues Dried strawberries and vanilla meringues Lemon meringues How to make these beauties: Ingredients: 400g tin of drained…
