I have been putting off making vegan cheese for a while now. Partly because I’m not a huge fan of the shop bought vegan cheese and partly because I assumed it would be super difficult to make. I was so wrong. This was one of the simplest recipes I’ve ever made and it set beautifully within 2 hours of making it. I was blown away by the taste of this cheese and even my super fussy weegan who hates anything resembling cheese has declared she loves it! The texture is so creamy. It slices like real cheese but can be spread like a cream cheese. It is smoky, salty and a perfect accompaniment to crackers and chutney. This will be our go-to party dish over the festive period. We know you’ll love it too. Enjoy! Help us out! If you have any questions or comments, leave them down below, or shoot us an e-mail!

We were spoilt this week by a very generous family member giving us a giant crate of plums. Food really is my favourite present to get. After I got Daddy Journey to do all of the preparation for me. By this I mean making sure there were no animals hiding out in our vegan crate of food and allowing him the laborious task of washing, halving and de-stoning the fruit, it was then down to me to bring the magic of these fruits to life! Just looking at them got my autumn creative juices flowing and after popping out the obvious crumble and tart I turned my attention to a recipe I had been meaning to do for some time. Now, if you’re like me then during the winter months you’ll love nothing more than a platter of party food to sink your teeth into. However, every year I would kick myself that I hadn’t gotten around to making my own chutney or relishes and ended up buying many of the overpriced jars from the supermarket. Receiving these plums seemed like the perfect opportunity to get ahead for the festive season and start squirrelling away the jars for the winter. […]
Hubble Bubble toil and trouble… What a fun and colourful way to get hands on this Halloween. There’s no better way to get into the spooky swing of things than getting messy, making witches potions. Eyeball soup anyone? We love sensory play in our household. The kids will spend literally hours in their quiet messy worlds. Most of the sensory tables we play with usually end up turning into play centred around food. The moment they begin to add in saucepans and cups you know you’re in for a barrage of crazy ‘food’ offerings from them which is why I think this table was such a hit. The kids got really creative with this bag of tricks and came up with some impressively gruesome potion ideas, I can tell you. The joy on their faces at making me squirm was a pleasure to see. Who can come up with the worst flavour witches soup to make mummy pull funny faces? Sensory play is not only loads of fun and perfect role play but it has therapeutic qualities too. Even a simple half an hour can tame a once over wired child into a quiet and curious little angel once more. […]
I did not expect this sensory table to go down quite as well as it did but boy, oh boy, this has to be one of the most played with sensory play ideas we have ever done. I kid you not! Both of my two have always been big into sensory play and small world trays. It seems to send them into their own worlds and we find it is a great way to relax them and settle them after a full day of craziness. We had been meaning to do this tray for the last few weeks but one thing or another seemed to get in the way. After a crazy day of outdoor play, arts and crafts and plenty of bickering I decided last night was the perfect time to try and regain some composure and calm. We set up the tuff spot tray at about 4 pm and we literally had to drag them away from it at 9 pm! It was an incredibly late night but I didn’t want to take them away from the worlds that they had created. They both played quietly and contentedly and begged me to keep it there for them to […]

Oh, I’m so enjoying all the crafts on the run up to our little Halloween tea party this year. Since we don’t go out trick or treating I thought I would put together party bags for them instead. I hate the idea of them missing out on anything and what better way to spoil them than letting them design their own spooky friend bag to hold all their tasty treats in. This is one of those very simple and low mess crafts, perfect for all ages (me included) and endless possibilities to the creations you can make. It was really lovely to see how creative the kids were. First of all, they brainstormed all of the spooky characters they could think of. (Mostly inspired by their beloved TV show Super Monsters.) Then they drew pictures of their favourite characters and together we set about outlining, cutting and sticking. We had so much fun that we spent hours on the floor in our own creative worlds, occasionally connecting with one another over our treasured pieces of art and bonding silently throughout the afternoon. We were submerged so long that my bottom needed a serious waking up when I finally peeled myself […]
