Bad Brownies Salted Caramel

Bad Brownies

We are thrilled this week to be reviewing Bad Brownies, after we had some of their delicious treats sent out to us as a sample. “They must be lying,” was the first thing J said when we opened up the package and took our first bite. “There’s no way that’s vegan.” read more

Video: Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Chocolate-covered strawberries

With the hot weather we’ve been enjoying a lighter kind of food – lots of salads and fruit. This week we thought we’d share a simple treat which is a lot of fun to eat – and a lot easier to make than you probably think! Chocolate-covered strawberries are so delicious, we just had to film them for you. read more

Almondies

This week we have something of an invention to share with: almondies, or almond blondies! We found a dessert in Canterbury which went by that name, and was delicious. This is not that dessert, and doesn’t even look remotely like it. Still, it’s a blondie packed full of almonds, so the name fits pretty well! read more

Vine Post: Banoffee Pie Jars

This week we have a sinfully good Vine to share with you. These banoffee pie jars were based on a Deliciously Ella recipe (that I won’t be reposting here), and they are SO GOOD. It’s hard to believe that such a small handful of ingredients can create this amazing taste, with a structure more akin to a cheesecake than a pie, all presented beautifully in a jar for good measure. read more

Vine Post: Baked Apples with Coconut Cream

So lately I’ve been trying to make more desserts, and these baked apples from the Deliciously Ella book caught our eye. As they’re from the book I won’t repost the recipe here, but you can read it elsewhere if you wish. 

What I will tell you is what I changed: instead of raisins and pecans, I used a dried fruit mix (like you would have in a mince pie) and skipped the nuts altogether. I also used normal sugar instead of coconut palm sugar. read more

Vine Post: Baked Bananas

This recipe for baked bananas is so simple, I’m not even including a recipe card. Take a look at our Vine and you will see just about everything you need to know for this delicious after-dinner treat!

First off, make sure that your bananas are nice and ripe. The riper the better, in fact! Don’t slice them all the way through, but just enough to cut through the flesh – you want the skin to hold together. The quantity isn’t so important but I used one date per banana and three squares of chocolate. read more

Vine Recipe: Apple and Honey Loaf

This one is adapted from one of the recipes in Deliciously Ella’s first book. I felt like we needed to have something sweet and as low-calorie as possible for after dinner, so I whipped up a batch! I adjusted a few details, as you will see, but this apple and honey loaf is still suitable for veggies. It’s no longer gluten-free as I used plain flour, but that’s a simple substitution if you want to try it. read more

Vine Post: The Revenant Bear Claws

So last night J and I went to see The Revenant. Wow. What a movie. If it doesn’t walk away with about 10 gazillion Oscars, there’s something wrong with the film industry. But besides the huge talents of Leonardo “Give Me Best Actor Already” Di Caprio and Tom Hardy, there’s another big star in the film: the bear. read more
