The chocolate cleanse riot: free ebook!

It’s finally here!! I can’t remember if I’ve been sneaky or not about this ebook (which is possibly another layer of ninja if I can hide even that from myself) but I’ve finished and it’s all yours for free and it’s 100% dedicated to my food mistress: chocolate. No matter how busy I get or how lazy, there’s always time in the day for a nibble on something chocolate-y. I may have something of an addiction, but I’ve decided to make a total chocolate cleanse for myself….with chocolate. And since it’s free, you can “cleanse” with me! 😀Chocolate Cleanse Riot Ebook via Marfigs Munchies Continue reading

Sticky date pudding (GF + V)

The other day I asked for suggestions for stuff to make, because my brain is kind of on auto-pilot at the moment. Enter sticky date pudding! Not quite traditional in looks, but it hits the spot and does so with natural ingredients and NO added processed sugar. I can’t say whether I enjoy the muffin-sized cakes or the sauce more, so let’s just say that together they work magic. stickydatepuddingSPLASH

Carrot chai melkkos {mylk food} vegan

There’s officially a cold front here now, and we’ve already increased our electricity bill by $80 last month, even though it wasn’t “officially” winter, which is supposedly July, according to our defunct and corrupt national electricity provider. To make up for the drama that is icy appendages and a desperate need for comfort food, I present to you a chai-ed up vegan version of a South African classic. melkkossplash Continue reading

Sago peach Easter pudding

And so ends a glorious long weekend, much deserved and very much appreciated! This weekend I’ve managed to catch up on so many baking projects and testing recipes for my upcoming ebook which I can’t wait to share with everyone. 😀 There’s decadence abound, I assure you! Speaking of decadence, here’s a doozy: vegan sago pudding. It tastes like the real deal, as Man-thing has assured me, and is just a magical, filling and rich dessert. YUM!sagopuddingyummarfigs

10 vegan Valentine’s recipes to satisfy all senses {and loving an omnivore}

V-day isn’t just about being in romantic relationships, thankfully. There is so much reason to love in the world every single day, but since humans love their holidays and themes, I may as well share some treats that can be whipped up to spoil friends (for a palentines day), family, or even just yourself (most legit of all).

I’m also linking to my article that was just published on Chic Vegan entitled “Loving an Omnivore”, so have a gander and let me know how you cope if you’re also in an omni-veggie relationship 😀valentinesbash.jpg

29 days of rice – Chocolate rice pudding parfait with fried guava – day 12

This is a super easy pudding dish that can be whipped up depending on what you have lying around. Sometimes you just really don’t want to go on a mission to the shops to make the pudding of your dreams, or a fruit isn’t in season, and in those cases I’m all for the noble can. We try and be prudent with cans in our home because we (or maybe just me) like to make most things from scratch, whether it be pasta sauces or beans, and it also works out much cheaper. Fruit, however, can sometimes be more expensive fresh than canned, and so this came to be.insideparfait Continue reading

Apricot anise granola + fruity basil parfait

parfaitprofileLately I’ve been carb obsessed, or more specifically, in love with granola! I’ve been seeing amazing recipes all over the internet and have been scarfing down store-bought, but there’s really nothing better than setting aside a tiny amount of time to yield big and amazing results. Best of all is that granola can really go with anything. Cobbler? Muffins? Ice-cream? Oh yes. I decided to be traditional and go with a parfait, but you can bet your blender this batch is going places! Continue reading
