Peach, Plum & Cardamom Galette

I’m going to be honest with you, making gluten free vegan pastry isn’t the easiest thing I have ever done. It took a few shots and it’s not exactly like a traditional crust but it tastes so good and definitely does the job in my opinion. So, I’m calling it a winner. Another thing I’m going to be honest with you about, I’m feeling a bit stuck creatively when it comes to the photography on here. Sometimes I’ll get a good set of images and be super proud read more

Roasted Carrot & Garlic Dip with Turmeric

I’ve been wanting to make this specific dip for a while now and I am so glad I finally got around to making it. So creamy, full of flavour and versatile.

Raw Strawberry & Coconut Cheesecake

Potato Salad with Warm Vegetables & Herb Dressing

Real summer food is decorated with summer flowers. I got to spend some time with my sister recently, the first chance we’d had for some proper twin time in months.

A science garden, healing garden, literary garden and an edible garden. This is all part of an incredible project happening in Dundee right now, Dundee Urban Orchard.

Matcha Mint Smoothie

I swear matcha is magical. The energy and feeling of zen it brings makes it the perfect way to start your morning. I do tend to have my matcha warm in a mug and packed with goodness and adaptogens but this smoothie is a fun, cooling alternative. Especially during the hotter summer months.

Naturally sweetened from the banana and cooling thanks to the mint it gives you a nice kick to get out the door and get going. The addition of tocos adds some creaminess as well as a boost of vitamin E – read more
