Don’t you just love getting two of your favourite things in the whole wide world and combining them together? It’s like chocolate and orange or roasties and mustard or peanut butter and jam. Some things were just meant to belong together. This is one of those times. I am one huge Christmas fan and the second September (yes I’m that Christmas crazy) comes around I am all over the Christmas recipes trying out all the wonderful different combos out there. I think you’ll all agree that I struck gold with this one. I mean mincepie flavoured doughnuts!!! Why had I not thought of that before? They really are as delicious as they sound. (Do you hear the sound of tooting trumpets?) Apologies for the shameless patting oneself on the back but I am so proud of this recipe and I can not wait to hear what you guys think of it too! Let us know what fantastic Christmas mash-ups you guys have tried. Sprout ice cream or roast potato sandwiches maybe? Actually, I could totally eat a roast potato sandwich but that can just be our little secret right? See you soon friends. Help us out! If you have any […]
Fed up with nut roasts? Tofurkey not floating your boat? This my friends is the ultimate vegan Christmas centrepiece and I am beyond excited to share it with you. This will be our second vegan Christmas and I am literally bouncing off the walls with excitement. Not only do I love all things Christmas and therefore I’m in a heightened state of excitement most of November (Note to self…I must try to not put up my tree until December!) anyway but I have been practising this recipe now for some time and it is truly yummy scrummy. Both the kids love it which is a mega win and it feels super special to have something so lovely as the main part of the meal. You can make this beauty ahead and freeze before baking which will save you time on the day. Yay! Simply cook from frozen and a mere 30 minutes later you will be serving up a golden, buttery pastry wreath full of wholesome nutrition to wow your guests. Winner, winner, vegan dinner! Enjoy… Have a fabulous Christmas Fam. Thank you for considering a cruelty free Christmas meal. You have loving hearts for which we are grateful. This […]

Ooh!! I’m so excited to share this recipe with you guys. There are few flavours I love more than orange and rosemary together and this here is no exception. It’s festive, its light, it’s fragrant and zesty. The perfect way to end a meal sweetly without having to undo your top button for room! (So rude!) This recipe was originally created many moons ago for our ebook but it just screams Christmas so much that I wanted to save it and share it with you lovely lot to show you how much I care. Nothing shows love more than Christmas or cake or Christmas cake. These little beauties are so moist and tender. The juicy glaze makes them melt in the mouth. However, as I like to indulge a little (a lot) over the festive season I drizzled them in my beloved Oatly cream and it transformed them into what can only be described as heaven on a plate. Yes really! I shall keep you in suspense no longer. Here you have the most wonderful orange and rosemary bundt cakes. Have a wonderful festive season Fam. We appreciate you more than you know. Help us out! If you have any […]
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go… Awww, I love this time of year. Everything is so much more magical and sparkly. The kids seem to get totally wrapped up with Christmas themed learning and open their arms to any possible chance at getting covered in glitter! This is why this writing tray has been such a winner. I kid you not that this has been played with every day and I am not laughing when I tell you that I’ve had to hoover the floor every single time they use it! What starts out as harmless spelling practice turns into a winter wonderland for the lego men or a simple sensory experience that requires them to run their hands back and forth throughout the salty sand. You’ve been warned, make sure you cover those carpets. I often get shocked looks when I show pictures of my kids doing worksheets or spelling practice. They quite often say things like, “But I thought you unschooled?” It makes me giggle because the idea of unschooling to us is to support our children’s interests and offer (not force) learning possibilities to them. Both of my two love doing worksheets […]
